I was going to say Some Kind of Wonderful but it turns out he wrote that one, but didn’t direct it. Of those listed, I guess Sixteen Candles. I liked it as a teen, but don’t really care for it anymore. The others I either saw and didn’t care for, or saw but don’t really remember, or never saw.
I voted for Ferris. But, I ran across Uncle Buck last night, on AMC, which I hadn’t seen in 20 years. Unlike, say, Sixteen Candles (which, I agree, has aged very poorly, even though I really enjoyed it back in the '80s), Uncle Buck is still pretty funny, and the little kids are still adorable.
I had to pick Sixteen Candles because I think it was the first one I watched but it really is a tie between Ferris, Uncle Buck & Breakfast Club as well. Sixteen Candles has aged badly and is pretty questionable but I still love it. Uncle Buck is probably one of the funniest movies ever made.
The Breakfast Club, remarkable as it may have been at the time, is absolutely unwatchable for me now. Maybe it’s because the dialogue is so cheesy, maybe because it’s so genuinely high school. Either way, I can’t sit through that shit.
Ferris Bueller, on the other hand, still captures my interest and makes me laugh out loud whenever it’s on, even if I don’t seek it out.
But PT&A makes me laugh out loud and it’s something I still actually look forward to watching every Thanksgiving night.
Uncle Buck made (makes) me laugh, but isn’t anything special, IMO. It falls into the category of Adventures in Babysitting, Teen Wolf, the Burbs, Funny Farm and The Great Outdoors. Just a basic 80s movie.
The rest: I don’t think I’ve seen any of them from front to finish, but have definitely seen a majority of each of those movies on cable over the years, just picking up scenes here and there. None of them piqued my interest enough for anything more than that.
