I was surprised at how many John Hughes movies I’ve seen.  From Wiki – John Hughes Jr. (February 18, 1950 – August 6, 2009) was an American film director, producer and writer. He was responsible for some of the most successful comedy films of the 1980s and 1990s, including National Lampoon’s Vacation, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Weird Science, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Uncle Buck, Home Alone and its sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

From Huffington Post- “As Hughes advanced into middle age, his commercial touch faded and, in Salinger style, he increasingly withdrew from public life. His last directing credit was in 1991, for “Curly Sue,” and he wrote just a handful of scripts over the past decade. He was rarely interviewed or photographed.”
