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.

And what is so great about this te... read more

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)

"I saw this movie when I was 14 during the summer vacation and this was right after I got over a depression phase and I don't want to get to into detail with it, but let's just say part of it was being caused by being transferred to a different school which meant being separated by most of my close friends and because I just wasn't completely happy with high school which lead me to miss being a kid. Even though I wasn't a bad kid and didn't really get in trouble for anything, I would annoy other "

" 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"

"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. "

" This film features a brilliant plot and acting, and where it fails is the score! While the film is mainly brilliant, it could manage without the score! The songs are kind of poor quality and pretty forgettable (apart from 'Don't You (Forget About Me)' which is a great song)! But apart from that, this is one of the best films of the 1980's, and definitely a must-see for all teens!"

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
