    I compiled his 80's movies for a blog my friends and I share. It's unbelievable:

    Mr. Mom
    National Lampoon's Vacation
    Sixteen Candles
    Breakfast Club
    European Vacation
    Weird Science
    Pretty in Pink
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    Planes, Trains & Automobiles
    The Great Outdoors
    Uncle Buck
    Christmas Vacation


    That's when I did the most of my growing up. I'm definitely and 80's child. I turn 33 this year. In later years, his movies waned, but I believe that's because he was stuck in the 80's mindset or focused merely on kids' movies.

    That's a ridiculously stacked list there. He knew how to direct a comedy, that's for sure.
    I'm 36 and am an 80s child too.
    The younger generation who didn't grow up in the 80s just doesn't understand it. I mean, us 80s kids could still relate to and understand the 70s much, much better than younger gens understand the 80s. Go figure.

    I'm definitely not an 80's kid... I was born in '89, but that's about it.

    I definitely enjoy his movies though... I've seen all of those listed with the exception of Mr. Mom, Weird Science, and Pretty in Pink.

    Wow. That's unexpected.

    I hadn't watched one of his movies in years, until I watched Planes, Trains and Automobiles last night.
