Luke Y. Thompson, movie critic, actor, and long-time friend, writes on Facebook: "I’m sad he’s dead, but frankly, John Hughes movies lied to me. They said awkward dorks like me could find love – or even basic understanding – in high school. That wasn’t true at all."
What about after high school?
Luke adds: "Hasn’t been all that true since, either."
Gary W. Hodges comments: "I’ve always found Breakfast Club in particular breathtakingly naive and dishonest."
