Trapped in a day-long Saturday detention in a prison-like school library are Claire, the princess (Molly Ringwald); Andrew, the jock (Emilio Estevez); John, the criminal (Judd Nelson); Brian, the brain (Anthony Michael Hall); and Allison, the basket case (Ally Sheedy). These five strangers begin the day with nothing in common, each bound to his/her place in the high school caste system. Yet the students bond together when faced with the villainous principal (Paul Gleason), and they realize that they have more in common than they may think, including a contempt for adult society. "When you grow up, your heart dies," Allison proclaims in one of the film's many scenes of soul-searching, and, judging from the adults depicted in the film, the teen audience may very well agree. Released in a decade overflowing with derivative teen films, The Breakfast Club has developed an almost cult-like status. ~ Dylan Wilcox, RoviHide synopsis
I haven't been too familiar with all of John Hughes' films. So, I watched THE BREAKFAST CLUB. How much fun! Hughes manages to tell a story, while making you want to be where everyone else is. He gives the movie charm, appeal and very good drama. He also gets nice performances out of the very young actors at the time!
From the music to the set to the characters, John Hughes really got what it was like to be a teenager in the 80's. Hughes truley reflected each sterotype of high school that every student, regardless of region, could identify with and understand. None of his other films ever addressed the fears, failures and successes of the American high school teenager like The Breakfast Club; plus Hughes had you wondering what was going to happen on Monday.
