One of the best 1980s teen flicks!

"Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?"

During the decade of the 80s John Hughes certainly had his share of classic teen flicks. Among some of his classic was Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles and of course The Breakfast Club. With The Breakfast Club, writer/director Hughes created an essential 1980s teen film.

Teen angst has never been captured so perfectly. Brilliant dialog, sharp performances and real characters that sum up certain social identities to perfection. Unfortunately movies of such genre that are being currently released are missing all of the essentials that this movie contains. The kids today are just given crap to watch and try and identify with. Poor bastards.

Great classic teen film...

This is a classic teenage film that I have wanted to watch for quite a while because I have heard and read so many positive reviews. This is probably the oldest film aimed at teenagers as well as adults; like before all of the American Pie films, Juno, Knocked Up etc. The Breakfast Club is a very funny film that does teach a lot about people and their differences regarding appearance but shows how... read more

Description: It's the weekend, and five students have weekend detention. There's a jock, a princess, a misfit, a nerd, and a lout. Not much in common, except for having to give up their day, sit in the school library, and write an essay for the principal. Being from such widely different backgrounds and having such completely different personaliti ... (more)

"The characters tell us that they are defined as stereotypes (and they do come across as stereotypes), and by the end of the movie they try to prove us that they aren't. I just don't find the way the characters are being handled to be very convincing. However, there were several genuine moments, and the performances were good. "

Dramatically and funnily mixes drama and comedy

“'The Breakfast Club' is a brilliant film! It's perhaps best for its target audience of teenagers, teens probably love comedy-drama films and this film dramatically and funnily mixes drama and comedy!

The film features a talented cast including under 18 actors (30 years ago :) such as Anthony Michael Hall and Molly Ringwald. The rest of the cast are also really good! The plotting is pretty intelligent. Most of the best films have a plot for adults, this one is a dramatic plot coupled with a dramatic, touching, hilarious script!

Five students are in Saturday detention, towards the end, some reveal what they're in for! This scene is sad and touching! The film takes on some really adult themes too though, such as John Bender (Judd Nelson)'s drug possession! The character o” read more

" Truly a classic never the teenage minds and troubles were so well represented on screen, a simple story about Five kids that go for detention and end up going through a journey of self discovery and understanding, its quite interesting that a movie with 30 years (can´t believe that much time as passed) still succeeds at being so accurate, Love it! and even if all you see is cliche tropes you still can´t deny that we all have a bit of all the characters inside of all of us and we can learn wi"

"Stereotyyppiset amerikkalaiskakarat joutuvat viettämään potentiaalisen dokauspäivän jälki-istunnossa, koska yhteiskunta on perseestä ja me syödään anarkiaa aamupalaksi. Jokainen kakara oppii hienoja asioita elämästä ja toisistaan, kunnes tajuavat, että ovat teennäisiä mulkkuja ja tsädäm, katarsis on saavutettu. Kasarisyntikan tahtiin tanssitaan ja opettaja on mulkku. Elokuvan opetus: siivooja on ravintoketjun kärjessä."

A classic

“Personally, I always had a rather hard time with John Hugues. Indeed, by now, I have seen almost all his directing efforts (I still need to see ‘She’s having a Baby’ and ‘Sixteen Candles’ though) and none of his movies really impressed me. However, there was one notable exception and it is this flick which was indeed quite amazing. First of all, it was the first movie directed by Hughes that I saw so maybe I wasn’t fed up yet with his directing style. Above all, I thought it was the only movie he made for which I thoroughly enjoyed the tone. Indeed, usually, I think the plots he develops are utterly childish and hardly entertaining. This time, even though there were some fun moments, there were also some rather grim scenes and the balance between those moods was very well done.” read more
