Personal Quote:

[on She's Having a Baby (1988)] I loved making that movie. It's one of the best movies John (Hughes) ever made. And I'm not just saying that to pat myself on the back. It talks brilliantly to commitment issues and what a first-time parent goes through. It was a huge [commercial] disappointment for us. I don't make movies for my family and friends, I make 'em so people see them. See more »
