Editorial Reviews

How did John Hughes capture the growing pains of adolescence so perfectly? Why do his films resonate with those that grew up with them, and those that have just discovered them? Why did he leave? Armed with those and many other questions, a documentary was put into production. It wasn't long before interviews with Hughes alumni and those influenced by Hughes transpired, shedding light on Hughes and his work. However, after 2 years of compiling hundreds of interviews there was still a very important one missing: John Hughes. DON'T YOU FORGET ABOUT ME cuts insightful and entertaining interviews with the honest, humorous, and tension filled road trip the neophyte filmmakers make to Chicago hoping to secure an interview with the reclusive director and closure for themselves. Interviews with Kevin Smith, Mia Sara, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Andrew McCarthy and more!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for enthusiastic fans October 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Insightful commentary from filmmakers and actors of the time and/or the genre, and a fun collage of clips from the great Hughes films.

This is good nostalgia if you love the Hughes films, but it's not a great documentary. As a fan of the Hughes films, I want to agree with these filmmakers as they reminisce, but much of their original material, from filming to writing, is somewhat weak -- although the editing is good. The comparison to movies of today is interesting if it can be substantiated: that teenagers identified with the Hughes movies in their time in a way that teenagers cannot identify with the movies and television of today. This seems to be the central viewpoint of the film, and it does gain some support and traction as the movie progresses. Expert insight comes from an array of filmmakers and actors who were there at the time or otherwise relevant to the topic, the profession, and John Hughes. Their collective commentary on corporate, product-driven Hollywood is significant.
There are no interviews with John Hughes himself -- nor Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Jon Cryer, or Matthew Broderick -- but you do hear from: Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Andrew McCarthy, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, Gedde Watanabe, Ilan Mitchell-Smith, and Kelly LeBrock, as well as Kevin Smith, among many others. The closing remarks directed at John Hughes are endearing.

These enterprising filmmakers deserve credit for getting their project done, but I would not recommend this film on its own merits. I enjoyed it as someone who loves the Hughes films since seeing them in the theaters in 1984-1986 as I went from junior high to high school. These movies were influential. If you relate the same way, this is almost like a supplemental title to the original movies, which you'll watch for the millionth time because they capture a particular time and place. For big John Hughes fans this is a welcome addition to the movies themselves.

3.0 out of 5 stars It had potential. June 8, 2014
Format:DVD
Thankfully, I saw this on TV, so I don't have to feel bad about paying to see it. Most of it was cool, but the hunt was what made me not like it. I grew up watching John Hughes movies, I was introduced to them by my older cousins (I was born in 1984). I liked the interviews from the casts of his movies, but Hughes has contributed enough, he didn't need to be hounded by these pretentious film students. By the end I was hoping they wouldn't get in touch with him. He obviously knows how deeply people feel about his movies and he chose not to be in the public eye for a reason. If it hadn't had the whole search, I would have liked it a lot more.
(I wonder if John ordered from the pizza place ever again. Lol )

One of the greatest movie directors in history. It is to bad he left us to soon. I learned even more about his life, movies and history.

3.0 out of 5 stars Any Extras? May 16, 2011
Format:DVD
As the other 3 reviewers have stated, this is a small treasure for those of us who happened to experience our high school years right along with the creations of Mr. Hughes. I must also echo that there was more attention paid to the filmmakers than I would have liked, but the interviews that are available here are more than I had ever hoped to see in one place.

I saw this on Netflix Instant and couldn't help but wonder: are there any extra interviews included on the actual disc? If so, I may be inclined to purchase.
