Do you love the 1980s? John Hughes comedies such as "The Breakfast Club," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Sixteen Candles," "Pretty in Pink," "Weird Science" and "Some Kind of Wonderful" captured the struggles of teens during the period.
Hughes later shifted toward adulthood during the later part of the decade with movies like "She's Having a Baby," "Uncle Buck," "The Great Outdoors" and "Planes, Trains and Automobiles."
John Hughes films and the nostalgia of the 1980s helped serve as the inspiration for and provided some themes in the new film "Prom Pact" that debuts March 30 on Disney Channel and Disney+.
Streamed & Screened Co-host Bruce Miller spoke with stars Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Blake Draper and Margaret Cho, as well as executive producer Julie Bowen of "Modern Family" fame and director/executive producer Anya Adams.
