John Hughes

Oh crap! John Hughes died of a heart attack today at the age of 59.

What an amazing mind.... Almost everything this man put down on paper was gold. The man wrote "Planes, Trains and Automobiles", the National Lampoon "Vacation" and "Christmas Vacation" movies, "Pretty in Pink", "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", "The Breakfast Club", "Mr. Mom", "Uncle Buck", "Sixteen Candles", "The Great Outdoors", "Weird Science", all the "Home Alone" movies, all the "Beethoven" movies. Not only did he write these movies, but he produced and directed most of them.....

Genius.... Pure genius....

The man wrote, produced and directed the movie "Curly Sue" for god's sake! He's probably the only person in the world who's been able to make Jim Belushi somewhat funny or charming.

By the way, a little tid bit of information... Can you name the highest grossing American comedy movie of all time?

Home Alone..... So Macaulay Caulkin is the star of the highest grossing American comedy movie of all time, and he's dating Mila Kunis? Makes sense, right?
