Homecoming intentionally harkens back to John Hughes’ iconic teen movies of the 1980s, including “The Breakfast Club” and “Sixteen Candles.”The comic book movie, in theaters now, even directly references the writer-director’s famed ditch-day comedy “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” in one sequence.What’s more, Spidey director Jon Watts instructed his cast of young actors, including star Tom Holland, to watch the aforementioned Hughes films, with the addition of “Pretty in Pink.”Remember that desperate race home by Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) that involved backyard fences and momentary home invasions?

- ‘Pee Wee,’ ‘Ferris Bueller’ a double feature of man-child movies at Castro
By G. Allen Johnson - Monday Sep 18, 2017
The “man-child” entered pop culture roughly around the rise of “Star Wars” movies and video games circa 1980. Among the fanboys’ avatars then: Pee Wee Herman and Ferris Bueller. Radically different characters, for sure, but each created a safe space to protect their inner Peter Pan against a relentlessly annoying outside world filled with unwanted responsibility. They were helped along by two visionary directors — Tim Burton, who brilliantly adapted “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” from Paul Reubens’ TV series “Pee-wee’s Playhouse,” and John Hughes, who captured teenage angst like no other and found his perfect slacker revolutionary in Matthew Broderick for “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
