    I've never been sad when celebrity died and I thought it would never happen. But this one hit me hard. I'm crying like a baby
    RIP John

    Time for a John Hughes film festival this weekend. The 80's would not have been the same without him.

    Does Barry Manilow know you raid his wardrobe?

    nooooo. Pretty In Pink is honestly one of my all-time favorites. not to mention, The Breakfast Club, Mr. Mom, etc.

    and having lost my mother to a heart attack at age 52, this kind of death always hits home.

    Rest in Peace Mr. Hughes!

    I really loved his work. I watch Mr Smith goes to washington all the time and Lost boys. He was so funny in that. He will be missed.

    He gave me Curly Sue and Weird Science. Both movies I was totally obsessed with and were big parts of my childhood.

    Summer 2009 is taking really talented people.

    You won't have to do that......I'm sure there will be a "John Hughes Memorial Movie Marathon" on at least ONE channel this weekend.

    I really enjoyed his movies. Grew up on them, too, like many others. He will be missed.

    Hughes wrote for National Lampoon in the 70s, when I used to read it. His story Vacation '58 (which was funny as hell) eventually became National Lampoon's Vacation (which was also funny as hell). He also penned a couple of stories about genetalia that were damned funny as well. Gonna have to pull out the old Lampoons. Enjoyed most of his movies. Much too young...RIP

    Next to Gilda Radner, this is by far the most devastating celebrity death for me.
    John Hughes directed, wrote, and/or produced most of my favorite movies.

    Way, way too soon for him.
    I'm not judgmental...I just like to form an opinion early on.

    Actually got to meet him back in '93. A really, really nice guy. He produced "Baby's Day Out" and was on-set the two days I filmed.

    Really, really nice guy, talked to EVERYONE, crew, stars, extras, you name it.

    RIP, Mr. Hughes. You truly were a great creative mind.

    wow, I was hoping he'd make some more movies soon. Curly Sue really is an underrated film.

    I am so saddened by his death.

    My childhood was defined by his movies.

    RIP, John. Us 80's kids will NEVER forget you.

    I concur with your words precisely! Since it is my birthday & I'm feeling sentimental, the words to a Simon & Garfunkel song come to mind.

    From "Bookends"

    Time it was and what a time it was it was,
    A time of innocence a time of confidences.

    Long ago it must be, I have a photograph
    Preserve your memories, theyre all thats left you.


    RIP, thank you for your work.
