    Love it. I’ve never grown out of John Hughes films or sympathising with the teenagers in them…

    Ever seen a guy with elephantitus of the nuts?

    I Bloody love that film! Due a re-watch I reckon. Binnerette number one is 13. About the right age to get it? I think so. Might watch it with her this weekend as Binnerette number 2 is at a sleepover. She loved Ferris Bueller

    I think 13 is about right! Ferris Bueller went down a storm here too, so I’m just waiting for my boys to get to the right age… My daughter totally doesn’t get that kind of humour, but maybe 16 Candles or Pretty in Pink well suck her in…?

    Pretty in Pink is not too bad either.

    This thread prompted a rewatch from me, realised why I loved this film so much.

    I used to be convinced that it was my favourite ever film. Sat down and watched it again with the Mrs a few years ago and realised it’s actually a bit shit

    Bloomin great film,although my ex wife looked like Molly ringwald when I first met her, now looks like Bella emberg. I also like pretty in pink, but preferred some kind of wonderful as Duncan was a massive influence on my early teen years.

    Sucker for that stuff my kids both really liked breakfast club, started showing it to their friends! Some kind of wonderful, sure thing, better off dead etc. 80s throwback.

    Principal Skinner from the Simpsons is rumoured to have been based on Principal Vernon.

    Still love some of the old John Hughes films – took my daughter to see ‘The Breakfast Club’ at our local independent cinema, which showed the original film stock complete with ‘flashes’ and defects.

    out of that epoch, I don’t think ’16 Candles’ stands the test of time. Although it has some great moments, it descends into ‘Porky’s’ frat-boy level on occasion.

    Pretty In Pink and Some kind of Wonderful are still fantastic though! 😉

    Brilliant film with a superb soundtrack, know the script almost word for word.

    Another thumbs up for ‘Some Kind of Wonderful’ too.

    Most of them (Brat pack movies) have now been re-released remastered as 25 or 30 year anniversary Blue Rays which are much better quality than the old DVDs.

    I love that whole era…

    Isn’t it 16 candles and pretty in pink that are essentially the same film?

    John Hughes films are great, but they’re pretty similar…

    Not the Brat pack, but I love Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Was that a John Hughes film? I always stop it before the end though. Comedy that ends in sadness, no thank you.

    Just finished it and loved it still, having not watched it for years. And it got a big thumbs up from 13 year old Binnerette number 1. I suppose the themes are timeless

    One thing I hadn’t really thought about before is how good a script and the actors have to be to make a film that captivating that is all basically shot in one room

    Oh…. and it is on Netflix, should you fancy it

    Agreed, but when discussing the film with my daughter she commented that a ‘modern’ version wouldn’t work as it would just be 5 kids in room looking at their ‘smart’ phones …

    I love the film but the only bit that makes me cringe is the scene where wrestler Andrew Clark (played by Emilio Estevez) makes the glass door shatter …
