With John Hughes' name popping up lately in association with Drillbit Taylor (it seems he cowrote the film under the psuedonym Edmond Dantes), we've been asking ourselves why this guy pulled a J.D. Salinger and quit while he was ahead. In retrospect even his relative failures, like Curly Sue and She's Having a Baby seem pretty good.

Editorial note: Whoa! You've found a super-old post here on BuzzFeed, from an earlier era of the site. It doesn't really represent where we are anymore, and may in fact be totally broken, but we're leaving it up as a part of our early history.
