    There's only one right answer here...Mr. Mom, I'll accept Weird Science or Vacation or Sixteen Candles though.

    Gotta be Home Alone. People will still be watching that 20 years from now. The others probably not.

    Lol. Mernards guy. Never thought of that but you are right. “Where is my Automoebeal”? Long Duk Dong laughs ... still drunk and tells Menards Guy grandpa...”Your Automobeal?”. Damn that was 36 years ago.

    Probably one of the best movie writers of all time. Dude captured the voice of teenagers and young people of the 80's.

    Seems like one of Hughes greatest gifts was finding the perfect soundtrack for his films..some of the artists like Lindsey Buckingham in Vacation who yes was famous for his play with Fleetwood Mac, had a great song nobody ever would have heard if it wasn't for Vacation...the songs he used at the ends of several movies were a perfect match for the mood. Man he was gifted.

    1. Vacation - "You thirsty kids!"
    2. Christmas Vacation - "Eddie I wouldn't be more surprised if I woke up tomorrow morning with my head sewn to the carpet"
    3. Planes Trains and Automobiles - "Those aren't Pillows!"
    4. Breakfast Club - (The Soundtrack)
    5. Dutch - "I have a problem because I told your mother I'd pick you up.. And you have a problem because the last guy that punched me has a dent in his forehead the size of my pinky ring, and he dribbles when he smiles"
