I'm a product of the 80's! When the decade started I was 13 years old and when it was finished I was 23. During those years the movies of John Hughes were hugely impactful and defined our generation.
Hughes, who passed away yesterday of a heart attack while taking a walk, was the writer / director of a number of movies that were formative to many of us "children of the 80's". The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off to name just a few.
Perhaps my favorite John Hughes movie however, was one of his least remembered, and that was the Kevin Bacon - Elizabeth McGovern film, "She's Having A Baby". For me it was the classic movie describing the trials and tribulations that nearly every young married couple goes through.
So good-bye Mr. Hughes, you left us WAY to early...but we have your movies, many of which had a large impact on many of my generation.
