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

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.

" Notes: 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’ 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 mad"
