I actually only watched 16 Candles the other day. But you can't go past classics like The Breakfast Club, Mr. Mom, Ferris Bueller, Weird Science and one of my all time favourites, Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Plus there's the lesser(but still quite watchable) Hughes films like Career Opportunities, Uncle Buck and the Vacation and Home Alone franchises. He pretty much made at least one movie that can appeal to everybody. Not that they were earth shattering, bigger than Ben Hur type flicks, but here was a man as, if not more, prolific and important to cinema as Spielberg during the 80's and 90's. A very sad day indeed when he died.
