John Hughes Quotes / Quotations

Quotation of John Hughes


At the time I came along, Hollywood's idea of teen movies meant there had to be a lot of nudity, usually involving boys in pursuit of sex, and pretty gross overall. Either that or a horror movie. And the last thing Hollywood wanted in their teen movies was teenagers!
Quotation of John Hughes


Fantastic! Right in the middle of that long stretch between Christmas and Spring Break, your coats are getting dirty, everything's dark, dingy - what a great time for a movie!

Quotation of John Hughes


I admire people like Judd Nelson, who have an innate sense of fashion. Judd could wear a bathrobe and sanitarium sandals and a fedora and look good.
Quotation of John Hughes


I always preferred to hang out with the outcasts, 'cause they were cooler; they had better taste in music, for one thing, I guess because they had more time to develop one with the lack of social interaction they had!
Quotation of John Hughes


I don't consider myself qualified to do a movie about international intrigue - I seldom leave the country.
Quotation of John Hughes

I'm a former hippie, so clothes are important to me - your clothes defined you in that period. I guess clothes still defines people. But, I change a lot. I'm in my Brooks Brothers period now.
Quotation of John Hughes

Quotation of John Hughes

Quotation of John Hughes


When I go to a concert, I can't believe that people pay lots of money to see a band that they obviously like and then they dance the whole time.
Quotation of John Hughes
