film meme - 4 screenwriters [¼] → John Hughes

 Many filmmakers portray teenagers as immoral and ignorant, with pursuits that are pretty base…But I haven’t found that to be the case. I listen to kids. I respect them…Some of them are as bright as any of the adults I’ve met.”

Romantic Tropes I’m an absolute sucker for:

The slow burn where they both love each other but think the other person doesn’t feel the same way but literally everyone in the world knows how they feel about each other.

They absolutely loathe each other but everyone around them knows that they actually totally love each other.

Royalty/Commoner ESPECIALLY when the commoner didn’t know they were royalty and feel so betrayed when they find out.

I mean really, any version of the Person A is hiding something about their identity for decentish reasons and Person B eventually finds out and is just so betrayed and Person A has some version of the “I didn’t mean for it to happen, but it did. I fell in love with you.” (Chasing Liberty is my favorite, okay?)

Also the “we’re from different worlds” version, too.

And of course Person A is trying to rescue/find/reunite with they significant other and Person B gets enlisted to help but then totally falls in love but thinks Person A really loves sigo, but when they finally are reunited they realize they really love Person B.

FAKE ENGAGEMENT!!!!!!!!

Me when I realized that the Party is entering high school the same year The Breakfast Club came out and that there’s a character for every high school stereotype portrayed within the cast to have an episode full of John Hughes parallels:
