John Hughes, who died about 10 years ago, wrote, produced, and directed some of the most popular and iconic movies of the 1980s and 90s, including National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989), Mr. Mom (1983), Sixteen Candles (1984), Weird Science (1985), The Breakfast Club (1985), Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986), Pretty in Pink (1986), Some Kind of Wonderful (1987), Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987), Uncle Buck (1989), and Home Alone (1990.) 

Now the stars of those classics, including members of the so-called "Brat Pack" who starred in many of his films, got together to recreate famous lines from those movies in a video tribute to John Hughes. We're talking Catherine O'Hara, Michael Keaton, Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, Laurie Metcalf, Anthony Michael Hall, Andrew McCarthy, Jon Cryer, Judd Nelson, and Molly Ringwald. Pretty sweet.
