    This one is going to be simple. What is the best John Hughes directed film. He has only directed 8 films so this shouldn't take to long.
    The list of films are:
    Curly Sue (1991)
    Uncle Buck (1989)
    She's Having a Baby (1988)
    Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
    Weird Science (1985)
    The Breakfast Club (1985)
    Sixteen Candles (1984)
    Voting will last about 24 hours, unless one is getting blown away.
    Round 1.
    Curly Sue
    VS
    Sixteen Candles
    Round 2.
    Uncle Buck
    VS.
    The Breakfast Club
    Have fun.
    My votes
    Sixteen Candles
    The Breakfast Club (I want this one to go all the way)

    God, I hope not. That would mean that his best film by far, Planes, Trains & Automobiles would have lost earlier [​IMG]

    Sixteen Candles wins 10-0
    The Breakfast Club wins 12-3
    Round 3:
    She's Having a Baby
    VS
    Weird Science
    Round 4:
    Planes, Trains & Automobiles
    Vs.
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    Although I do like She's Having a Baby my vote is going to Weird Science. And while I absolutely love PT&A I'm going to have to go with Ferris Bueller's Day Off
