Hughes was pressured by studios to write in a scene featuring sex in some way.
Wrong, director John Hughes refused to do another film for two reasons.
One was because he and Judd Nelson had a terrible relationship, meaning they hated each other.
I dont know why they didn't choose John Cusack, but it was said that they couldn't afford Nicholas Cage's salary at the time.
Gillian adds: Hughes was stuck between John and Judd but eventually he chose Judd as he looked more "threatening".
The sixteen-year-old has a crush on the most popular boy in school, and the geekiest boy in school has a crush on her.
Her sister's getting married, and with all the excitement the rest of her family forgets her birthday!Add all this to a pair of horrendously embarrassing grandparents, a foreign exchange student named Long Duk Dong, and we have the makings of a hilarious journey into young womanhood.The Long Duk Dong character is suspiciously similar to another character in a story John Hughes wrote for National Lampoon Magazine, titled "Christmas '59".Also because Molly Ringwald was trying to get out the role of the regular teen girl.Eventually she lost all ties with John Hughes when she started to pursue more adult roles.In the begining of the film they are showing shots of stuff around the school (with talking over top).
