Let us be your vehicle to escape your problems this week as Alex and Jonathan talk through three of John Hughes’ high school films: Sixteen Candles (1984), The Breakfast Club (1985), and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986). We discuss how comedy ages, use and critique of stereotypes, and unique character dynamics in a high school setting.
