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.

The Brat Pack, Part 1

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

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 personalities, it's inevitable that some frictions and shenanigans develop. Especially when the principal leaves the room.

"Some say that this will turn into an abusive relationship. I call bullshit. Sure, John Bender may be an asshole, but he's got Claire to remind that even with his awful life at home, he's got her to look forward to. "

The Emotional Connection (9 movies items)

" Teens are human. It's something some people seem to forget. The Breakfast Club is something to prove them wrong. I'm probably alone when I think that every teenager should watch this movie at least once. While the soundtrack has dated horribly, the content has not. There's something I related to in every character. Even John Bender, who was gigantic asshole throughout most of it, has a side that even makes him relatable. It's a movie that gets me every time. "

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2016: First Half (54 movies items)

" There's not really a lot happening here when it comes to plot or story. It's beyond being paper thin in that regard. But The Breakfast Club is not about that, and it goes to show that in many ways, plot is not necessarily the most important thing in a film. This is all about the characters, and they're all wonderful. The film is driven by seemingly stereotypical characters that slowly unfolds new layers as the film go by, and whom are all relateable in one way or another. It's an emotionally s"

"20.2. Skidit oppii elämästä jälki-istunnossa. Klassikkoasemassa oleva filmi on kaikin puolin ihan jees viihdykettä."
