Exactly 30 years ago — on March 24, 1984 — a group of high schoolers made pop culture history when they served Saturday morning detention together in the film The Breakfast Club. And much like Easy A's Olive Penderghast, it's safe to say we all had the same aspiration of wishing for John Hughes to turn our life into one of his classic '80s films. From Sixteen Candles to Pretty in Pink, Hughes directed, produced, and wrote a plethora of films that everyone could relate to. Teenage angst, heartbreak, and falling in love were some of Hughes's most common themes, so it's no wonder why these films still catch our eye today. Whether you were a Duckie fan or couldn't help but swoon over Jake Ryan, find out what these iconic characters taught us about love.
