According to the film’s commentary from it’s late director, John Hughes, the museum scene was “self indulgent” and his chance to show off the works of art that had meant so much to him and a place that he spent a lot of time in as a youth.

2. The scene, which is without dialogue, at one point showcases the glum Cameron Frye, as he stares at Georges Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.

According to Hughes, “I always thought this painting was sort of like making a movie… You don’t have any idea what you’ve made until you step back.”

3. Cameron, who we know has father issues, stares at the little girl with her mother in the painting.
