Teen Comedies Shed a Tear: The Death of John Hughes

R.I.P. 1950-2009

R.I.P. 1950-2009

An end of the man, the myth and the legend, Mr. John Hughes has passed away today. Hughes has written such classic 80’s films such as Weird Science, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and the screenplays for the Vacation franchise. His other classics consist of the entire Home Alone franchise, Uncle Buck, and Miracle on 34the Street screenplay. He was in the park in NYC on a walk this morning when he went into cardiac arrest. This marks a sad day for film writers everywhere who were inspired by Hughes’ classic hits. Without Hughes we probably wouldn’t have films like Superbad, American Pie, Road Trip, and beyond. His writing style will live on forever through his films and will always be remembered for the works that he has done. So shed a tear you 80’s teens who grew up on John Hughes films as you rebelled against the norm and wore paint on your overalls
