Music play heavily into both directors' films, and neither directed a film written by another writer. While both wrote and directed strong teenaged characters, they each were able to break out of the High School mold and make a film with living, breathing adult characters (Jerry Maguire vs. Planes, Trains and Automobiles).

As much as I love Almost Famous, John Hughes gets my vote for creating characters that you could feel living and breathing.

Hughes basically for Planes. Ferris isn't that funny and virtually everyone is funnier than Ferris himself but i guess it's still da bomb mama jama.

Hughes made films that an entire generation clung to. Cameron Crowe just makes movies. Hughes wins.

I love Almost Famous and Vanilla Sky but have little use for Crowe's other films. I vote for Hughes. A stronger overall body of work.

This one was VERY difficult for me to answer. In fact -- my answer kind of makes me hurt a little. As much as I LOVE John Hughes films, I went with Cameron Crowe who created one of my Top 5 of all time favorites: Almost Famous. It was one of the movies that made me fall in love with film and I truly connect to it more so than most any other film I have seen. Both are great masters, but I have more of a personal connection to Crowe.

Cameron Crowe. Almost Famous is a damn near perfect movie in my opinion.
