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.

“While I slightly prefer Planes, Trains and Automobiles, this along with Ferris Bueller's Day Off is one of John Hughes' better films. It isn't a perfect film I agree as admittedly the characters are clichéd and there are minor logic lapses, but here's the thing- the more I see The Breakfast Club the more I like it. It still has its freshness, and while I never had a detention when I was in school even from what I've heard from people who have this actually makes detentions cool. And it is still relevant not only to the teenagers back then but now too, it does ring true a vast majority of the time what with its justified grievances, self-pitying whinges and hard-hitting home truths. The cinematography is nice and fluid, typical Hughes really, and the soundtrack adds to the film's coolness.” read more

Film Students Required Viewing (16 movies items)

"Required for all. This is 1/3 required films to watch by Director John Hughes. Notice the "low stakes" mastery of entertainment without playing it "too pg" or "too R". Estimate the budget, write your thoughts on the acting, and script. Write about how John Hughes excels at.....fill in your own opinion."
