    John Hughes and Eighties Cinema






    .....

    by Thomas A. Christie

    John Hughes’ teen dramas are still fondly remembered today - not least by members of Generation X, who grew up
    through the eighties and many of whom now look back on generation-defining films like Pretty in Pink (1986) and Some Kind of Wonderful (1987) with considerable nostalgic affection.

    Although it is easy to remember John Hughes for his meteorically successful teen movies right the way through the decade, including The Breakfast Club (1985) and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986), he was every bit as adroit in his handling of madcap suburban satires such as Mr Mom (1983) and Uncle Buck (1989), his wry observations of the great American holiday in National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983) and The Great Outdoors (1988), the trials of an exasperated everyman commuter in Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987), and the expectation of anxious new parents in She’s Having a Baby (1988).
     

    Thomas Christie has a life-long fascination with ?lms and the people who make them. Currently reading for a PhD in Scottish Literature, he lives in Scotland with his family.
    He holds a ?rst-class Honours degree in Literature and a Masters degree in Humanities, specialising with distinction in British Cinema History, from the Open University in Milton Keynes, England.
    He is the author of Liv Tyler, Star in Ascendance: Her First Decade in Film (2007) and The Cinema of Richard Linklater (2008) which are also published by Crescent Moon.

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off: Pocket Movie Guide

    ....

    by Thomas A. Christie

    One of John Hughes’ most charmingly offbeat films, 1986's Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is certainly among the most overtly humorous of his canon of teen movies. It is also one of his best-remembered, its profile challenged only by the acclaimed The Breakfast Club which was released the year beforehand. Contrasting perfectly with the more serious, issue-based tone of Pretty in Pink which immediately preceded it in the same year, Hughes’ wittily incisive dialogue was never as razor-sharp as when delivered by the smart-mouthed high school slacker Ferris Bueller.
