A tribute to John Hughes

You might not admit it, but deep down everyone loves a John Hughes movie or two, so it's sad to hear of his passing, aged just 59.

So why not rifle through your movie collection and dig out Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, The Great Outdoors or Uncle Buck. All will guarantee you some 80s-style nostalgia, along with some cracking entertainment. Ok, they might have dated, but that's half the appeal.

Or just check out the trailer to the Breakfast Club below. Gone, but unlikely to be forgotten for a generation – and still the best teen movie maker of all time, without question.
