    Oddly enough we had our own "tribute" tonight... The kids wanted to watch The Great Outdoors so they did it downstairs and Tinkmomma and I watched Vacation upstairs... truly happy times and a heartfelt thank you to the man who brought a lot of laughs to my generation!

    Also did all of the 'Vacations'. Christmas Vacation along with Ferris Bueller are my top favorite movies of all time! Very sad he's gone. R.I.P. John Hughes.

    Truly an iconic director. Maybe not on a Spielberg level, but on a level of his own.


    Not sure when the funeral is, or where he will be buried, but I think it would be a nice tribute of someone were to place sixteen candles at his gravestone.

    Those were good years to be a teen. Farewell John Huges
    Who's the Brat Pack anyway? I never caught on to that.

    Re: Director John Hughes dies at 59

    I liked so many of John Hughes movies ... Among my favorites, the first HOME ALONE, WEIRD SCIENCE, FERRIS BUELLER, CAREER OPPORTUNITIES, SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL, but THE BREAKFAST CLUB, was my favorite John Hughes movie.

    It was really more of the slightly older Malibu-based 'St. Elmo's Fire' crowd, here's the original 1985 article:

    Hollywood’s Brat Pack
    They're Rob, Emilio, Sean, Tom, Judd, and the rest—the young movie stars you can't quite keep straight. But they're already rich and famous. They're what kids want to see and what kids want to be.

    Maybe also an offshoot of the "Rat Pack" with Frank, Dean, Sammy, and...... Jerry?


    I know Frank, Dean, and Sammy made up the rat pack, but I'm not sure if Jerry was ever a part of it.

    The article explains it. But no Jerry, Lawford, MacLaine and Bishop though.

    The title was actually awarded earlier to Bogart's crowd (Garland, Bacall, Hepburn, Tracy & Sinatra, etc.) prior to Sinatra's L.V./L.A. more press coverage latter version.

    His films made me think of the great 80's more. I loved Ferris and The Breakfast Club. I love all the brat pack members, just because they were in his films. R.I.P!!
