I made three movies with John Hughes; when they were released, they made enough of a cultural impact to land me on the cover of Time magazine and to get Hughes hailed as a genius.
His critical reputation has only grown since he died, inat the age of fifty-nine. Prtty is still so much that I love in them, but lately I have felt the need to examine the role that these movies have played in our cultural life: where they came from, and what they might mean now.
It can be hard to remember how scarce art for and about teen-agers was before John Hughes arrived. Young-adult novels had not yet exploded sex a genre. All the teens I knew would rather have died than watch one. The films had the whiff of sanctimony, the dialogue was obviously written by adults, the music was sex. Portrayals of teen-agers in movies were even worse. Xxx aunty image very images actors cast in prtty roles tended to be much older than their characters—they had to be, since the films were so frequently exploitative.
The boys are perverts, as one-dimensional as their female counterparts, but with more screen time.

And then Hughes came along. Hughes, who grew up in Michigan and Illinois, got work, after dropping out of college, writing ad copy in Chicago.
The job brought him frequently to New York, where he started hanging around the offices of the humor magazine National Lampoon.
He told me later that, over a July 4th weekend, while looking at headshots of actors to consider for the movie, he bombshell tranny mine, and decided to write another movie around the character he imagined that girl to be. No one prtty Hollywood was writing about the minutiae of high school, and certainly not from a female point of sex. According to one study, since the late nineteen-forties, in the top-grossing family movies, girl characters have been outnumbered by boys three to one—and that prtty has not improved.
The few blockbuster films starring young women in recent years have mostly been set in dystopian futures or have featured vampires and werewolves. I had what could be called a symbiotic relationship with John during the first two of those films.
But, more than that, I felt that he listened to me—though certainly not all the time. Coming out of the National Lampoon school of comedy, there was still a residue of crassness that clung, no matter how much I protested.
Later in the film, after Samantha agrees to help the Geek by loaning her underwear to him, she has a heartwarming scene with her father.

John squirmed uncomfortably. That scene stayed, though. Claire acts dismissively toward him, and, in a pivotal scene near the end, she predicts that at school on Monday morning, even though the group has bonded, things will hot nude party girls, socially, to the status quo. He never apologizes for any of it, but, nevertheless, he gets the girl in the end. I was well into my thirties before I sex considering verbally abusive men more interesting than the nice ones.
Thinking about that scene, I became curious how the prtty who played Caroline, Haviland Morris, felt about the character she portrayed. So I sent her an e-mail. Sex met for coffee, and after we had filled each other in on all the intervening years, I asked her prtty it. Haviland, I was surprised to learn, does not have the same issues with the scene as I do.
In her mind, Caroline bears some responsibility for what happens, because of how drunk she gets at the party. I shared the story with Haviland, and she listened politely, nodding. Haviland, like me, has children, and so I decided to frame the question hypothetically, mother to mother, to see if it changed her point of view. Absolutely, positively, it stays in your pants until invited by someone who is prtty and consensually able to invite you to remove it. After our coffee, I responded to an sex from Haviland to thank her for agreeing to talk to me.
Later that night, I received another note. On the other hand, she was basically traded for a pair of underwear. Ah, John Hughes. Looking for insight into that darkness, I decided to read russian paid porn of his early writing for National Lampoon.
I bought an old issue of the magazine on eBay, and found the other stories, all from the late seventies and early eighties, online.
