I admit it. I’m a total sap. There are some movies, some people, some songs that get me every time. Like, say, anything by John Hughes.
I must say my all-time favorite John Hughes movie is Sixteen Candles. But when I came across the trailer for The Breakfast Club recently, my heart skipped a beat.
How did he do it? The humor, the timing, the actors… the music. Everything John Hughes created was a magical balance of sweet, raw, smart, cheeky, fun, tender and hopeful. It makes me feel like I’m 38 going on 13 again.
