Continuity mistake: The scene where the elementary school teacher asks his kid what they did that week. After he asks that question and Maizy raises her hand, look at the desk belonging to the girl in the row next to Maizy. It has crayons and other supplies on it. After the teacher calls Maizy's name, the shot goes back to her, showing the girl in the next row's desk completely empty. (00:58:00)
Uncle Buck (1989)
Directed by: John Hughes
Starring: John Candy, Macaulay Culkin, Gaby Hoffmann, Jean Louisa Kelly
Trivia: The scene where Macaulay Culkin was waiting at the door for the babysitter and imagined the three burglars was the scene that inspired the box-office hit, Home Alone. (01:16:10)
Question: When Uncle Buck is going to the party to get Bug, he is stopped at a red light and there are two parents in the car next to him. The father says, "don't go in there with that hat on, they'll kill you". Why would someone be killed for wearing a hat?
Answer: The Uncle Buck movie was made in the late 80s, near the end of the Cold War. And Because the hat resembles the Russian ushanka worn by Russian soldiers in that time, it can be said that wearing it might anger some, especially young Americans opposed to world events at the time.

Chosen answer: He's being sarcastic, as Buck says in the beginning some of his hats anger a lot of people, which probably connects to when his hat gets taken by one of the teenagers at the party.
Buck is actually referring to his aviator style hat in the earlier scene about people being angered by it. He's wearing the fedora style hat in the scene en route to the party. But I agree the guy was being sarcastic about teenagers.
