Sunday Fluff

So something about the death of director John Hughes really feels like the end of an era for us Gen X’ers. I mean, the man’s movies pretty much defined “cool” for most of us, and I can still personally quote entire scenes from Sixteen Candles and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. So I started thinking about other movies that significantly contributed to my ideas of what teen life could (or should) be. I limited myself to movies that were released before I graduated from high school (1989). Here are my top ten, in no particular order:

1. Meatballs
2. Caddyshack
3. Sixteen Candles
4. The Breakfast Club
5. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
6. Vacation
7. Say Anything
8. Dirty Dancing
9. Pretty in Pink
10. Grease

What’s on your list?
