Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – 1986 – John Hughes

ferris_buellers_day_off.jpgFerris, played by Matthew Broderick, isn’t in class and neither is his best buddy nor his girlfriend. The principal correctly suspects they’re out playing hooky, but Ferris is too smooth and too lucky to get caught. After the St Paddy’s Day parade scene, FBOH was cemented as an 80s classic.

The Breakfast Club – 1985 – John Hughes

breakfast_club.jpg“In the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions,” it’s 1980s American high school: jock, princess, loner, nerd and rebel. Nary a better line in cinematic history than: “Shut up bitch! Go fix me a turkey pot pie!” The 80s were Hughes’s golden era and this was his magnum opus.
