So Sad

I grew up on John Hughes’ films and introduced my kids to them.  My family still watches Home Alone every single Christmas. I own Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Weird Science and so, so many others.  This has been a hard summer–feels like I’m losing one childhood icon after another.

The movie kiss that rocked my world back then. 🙂

    Yeah, I was kinda saddened about about his passing, too. His movies are like cult classics. Here’s a funny: I was watching an episode of PSYCH a while back. If you’ve ever seen this show, then you know it’s hi-larious. The episode I watched was when Shawn and his friend Gus went to their high school reunion. Shawn was solving a case and somehow he and this woman he used to like ended up on the roof of the school. The funny was that he was renacting the dance scene from THE BREAKFAST CLUB. By himself. In the midst of his “psychic” routine. On the roof. With this woman looking on. I couldn’t stop laughing for about 5 mins. I was laughing so hard, my hubby came back to the room to find out what was going on.

    Loved SIXTEEN CANDLES. Michael Schoenfeld was a friggin’ hottie!!!

    I was bummed when I heard of his passing. So many good movies. Ferris Bueller, The Breakfast Club. I haven’t seen this one, but now I want to watch it!
