The Breakfast Club
If there’s only one thing you can say about John Hughes it’s that he understood the plight of adolescence. When five teenagers are sentenced to a Saturday detention their day looks pretty bleak. A brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal are forced to get to know each other and learn that they aren’t all that different.
Back To The Future
Michael J. Fox was pretty foxy indeed in the 1980s (see what I did there?) In the Back To The Future trilogy he plays Marty McFly who with the help from his friend Dr. Brown (Christopher Lloyd) figures out how to time travel in his DeLorean. Landing in 1955, Marty comes face to face with his parents! Unfortunately his mom and dad haven’t met yet, and if Marty doesn’t find a way to get them together he won’t ever be born! Can he fix his parents relationship so he can get back to the 80s?
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
This is the high school movie to end all high school movies. Our last John Hughes masterpiece. Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) may seem like your typical slacker, but in actuality he’s a grade A schemer. With the help from his friend Cameron and his lovely girlfriend Sloane, Ferris plans the perfect day off from school. Concocting the most masterful plan to convince his parents he’s too ill for school, he’s free to take the day to experience Chicago. After a Cubs game, a nice meal, and a float down a parade, can Ferris make it home before his principal catches him? You probably know the answer, but this is one movie worth seeing through to the end!
