    Bolded films I've seen.

    Hughes really hasn't directed a movie since '91? Didn't realize that.

    I'm shocked, is that all he's done? Retired early didn't he? Ferris Bueller is the Citizen Kane of teen comedies. One of the most quoted films ever, I've seen it countless times.

    Rankings

    1)Ferris Buellers Day Off
    2)Planes, Trains & Automobiles
    3)Weird Science
    4)Uncle Buck
    5)Breakfast Club

    Ferris might be the only one of his I would actively seek out, but if I'm flipping channels and come across one of his movies, I'm stopping at least until the next commercial break.

    1. Ferris Bueller's Day Off - A-
    2. Planes, Trains, And Automobiles - A-
    3. Uncle Buck - B+ (haven't come across this in awhile, but it was a favorite when it came out. I lusted hard after the daughter, she had gorgeous eyes. I'm surprised she was never really in anything else. *sigh*)
    4. Sixteen Candles - B
    5. The Breakfast Club - B
    6. Weird Science - C (always more of a "My Science Project" fan [​IMG])
    7. She's Having A Baby - C-

    Own: 0 (considered buying Ferris a few times but never pulled the trigger.)

    She's Having a Baby (1988) - 7/10
    Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987) - 7/10
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) - 5/10

    Great stuff as a teenager, not so much as an adult.

    I'm sad to see so many low scores for She's Having a Baby. IMO, it's his most interesting and one of the funniest.
