I think nearly everyone of the generation born in the 70's and 80's came of age with the help of his films. RIP

And virtually every teen comedy in the 90's & 00's owes a debt of gratitude to him as well. RIP.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off remains one of my favorite films of all time. RIP.

Man how sad is this? ONE he was only 59? And two, anybody near my age either went on a date to a John Hughes movie, or was in love with somebody IN a John Hughes Movie.

Sad indeed.

He was only 6 years older than I am. Even though I am a bit older, I enjoyed his work alot. Didn't he do Trains, Planes, and automobiles? Loved that movie.

Yes, wrote it too. I would call it his best film. He seemed to not do much directing after "Curly Sue". Maybe John Candy was his muse...

I wasn't old enough to be doing any kind of dating or to feel any kind of angst, teen or otherwise, when his classic high school dramady was big; Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, and the Breakfast Club were films I didn't watch till probably ten years after they were made, edited to shit, on TBS. But I must say, the Beethoven movies...the first two anyway, and the Home Alone movies, again, the first two, were must-watch stuff when I was kid. He didn't direct them, but he did write them.

Wow. What a loss. The Breakfast Club is an incredible movie, and easily one of my favorites

RIP.

Coincidentally, we just picked up a $6 DVD of Some Kind of Wonderful. We'll be watching it this weekend, awash in teenage nostalgia.

How did I not hear this until now?? So sad, another part of my childhood gone. I watch Planes Trains & Automobiles every Thanksgiving, but think I might have to dust it off this weekend.

The guy was a guru.

I just watched Weird Science a day or two before I heard he died, and Ferris Bueller a week or so ago. Also worked through the Vacation movies a couple of months ago. European still rocks.

Need to get hold and re-familiarise myself with the Ringwold years. I always enjoyed those.

Great quote from the Ferris movie.

Martin was a pretty great show the first 2 or 3 season and had tremendous ratings. Brother Man was best. It started sucking near the end, like most shows do. And I thought it was Tisha Campbell that sued him for sexual harrasement.
