Early Life

John Hughes was born in Flint, Michigan in 1950 and his father John Hughes worked for Michael Moore. Both Hughes and Moore were close friends and wrote screenplays for College Students and student life until 1980 when Hughes said that he was going to vote for Ronald Reagan rather than Jimmy Carter who Moore supported.

Also, Michael Moore told John Hughes that his College and High School movies weren't going to go anywhere and John Hughes told Michael Moore that his Docudramas weren't going to go anywhere. Well...they were both wrong!

The 80's

John Hughes was inspired by the National Lampoon franchise (There was only one at the time and that was "Animal House"). But he would make any of his films at the time be inspired for teenagers and make them as funny as Animal House.

The movies that he directed were made up for the Brat Pack, who are inspired by The Rat Pack and The Cat Pack. The Brat Pack followed Hughes until 1991 when Hughes stopped directing and became a writer as well as a producer.

The 90's

John Hughes left the director's chair and he had his friend Chris Columbus take over the role as he wrote and produced many forgetful movies at the time. So he retired in Chicago where they made the movie Home Alone. However, he still help write and produce films when he was visiting Columbus.

Death

After producing the Third installment of Donald Duck: Full Frontal (Known as "Donald Duck: Fully Clothed"), John Hughes would take a jog around Manhattan. He was bound to visit his relatives, but Daffy Duck would smash a piano on him for having him be in a crappy sequel of a Disney Film! All charges were dropped if Daffy would dress as Donald Duck at John Hughes' funeral. It was hell for him, but his rival Donald was laughing throughout the funeral.

The song "Don't you forget about me" was played at his funeral at the church where they filmed "Home Alone".
