I'm a fan of several things. Mostly food, sauces and dancing.

A major blow was dealt to the city of Chicago today as well as the entire world of 80's High School Comedies when we learned of the passing of legendary Chicago Film Director, John Hughes.

"[He's the] philosopher of adolescence" - Roger Ebert on John Hughes


It hit us here at Fry Cook on Venus especially hard since we are carrying his name sake from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I've bundled together some of my favorite John Hughes' movie clips for you to enjoy.
 

Ferris Bueller's Day Off


The Breakfast Club



Pretty In Pink



Planes, Trains & Automobiles



National Lampoon's Vacation



Uncle Buck




RIP John Hughes 1950 - 2009

Great retrospective--I forgot about "Uncle Buck" and didn't even realize John Hughes did "Vacation."

Great blog!

My Condolences to his family, I loved some of his movies especially the breakfast club, Home Alone and Home Alone 2. Definitely his movies defined a generation as well as gave us plenty of chuckles. For all his fans I have collected some good sites and articles (more than 250 sites ) related to his latest news coverage, biography, Movies, Movie Quotes and Interviews. If you are interested take a look at the below link

A warm memory-when my daughter was hurt in an auto accident, a friend of our lent me his travel trailer with a little tv-with a vhs built in, and the movie-home alone. When I was facing a multitude of doctors and stress, I could escape to the trailer and laugh. I can't tell you how that video of home alone meant to me. A smile in the middle of a tramatic experience. I have all the home alone videoes, as well as the breakfast club and ferris bueller's day off that my disabled daughter and i still watch. thank you for helping me through Mr. John Hughes. I know God has a special place for people who make other's smile. And may God comfort the family in knowing what a great guy he was to all of us, sincerely genia and april
