Movie Shout Outs - John Hughes - Responses

It's Movie Shout Out Sunday Time!

Yesterday's question was, in honor of the late John Hughes:

What is your favorite scene from a John Hughes movie?

Your responses brought back a lot of fun memories! Thanks for helping us celebrate the the director/writer who was such a big part of our youth! Check out the responses below:

There are so many, but I gotta go with the parade scene in Ferris Bueller. I promise not to do 50 entries on this thread, but I've got to mention Ginny's wedding in Sixteen Candles as well. Her "walk" down the aisle is classic.

Decided! The beginning speech where he breaks the 4th wall. I love the 'this is who I am and what I'm doing' frank approach. He's like, 'let's get the bullshit outta the way so we can both enjoy my day off' and I'm like 'i'm with ya, Ferris!' LOL

the scene in Some Kind of Wonderful, when he realizes Mary Stuart Masterson loved him.. Towards the end.. Need to watch that again

The Ferrari out of the window in 'Bueller'

Okay, there are a lot of favorite scenes and some of them have already been mentioned, but a couple of months ago I got stuck on Dupont Circle and the third time around I thought to myself, "Look, Big Ben!" Maybe not the most memorable scene, but there are so many that just pop into your head when you least expect it.

The "Whats your record" scene in Uncle Buck. Great fast-paced dynamic. That or any scene with Jennifer Connelly + sexual reference in Career Opportunities.

"You ever hear of a tune-up?" "You ever hear of a Ritual Killing?" That's just one of the PILE.

The hatchet speech from Uncle Buck, hands down.

I love 16 candles when Debbie Pollack is on the exercise machine with Long Duk Dong

Either [the intro to Ferris Bueller where he is speaking to the audience] or [the scene in Planes, Trains and Automobiles at the car rental counter where Steve Martin has a minor meltdown]. I just love Broderick's tone and carefree attitude. And Steve Martin has the greatest timing of any comedian ever - that scene would have bombed with a lesser talent.

Favorite John Hughes movie moment is the internal rewriting of the wedding vows by the Kevin Bacon character in She's Having a Baby.
Tony B. via Facebook

Here, I'll tell you a scene i liked in a movie he wrote. In "Vacation" I liked the sceen with the hot girl driving next to Chevy Chase.

This one was a tough choice. I'd have to say the end of the Breakfast Club. When Molly Ringwald gives Judd Nelson the earring. Kinda sappy, but I love it.

In the breakfast club, when Anthony Michael Hall's character admits that he almost committed suicide. It was when he became a full-fledged character.
Lee from MYMHM

The Ferris Bueller parade sequence. I know it's mentioned above, but it just brings me such pure, unadulterated joy.
Juan from MYMHM

Rest in Peace, John Hughes!
