This film is one of the most influential films I have ever watched. It reaches out to you - and your touched by it. No matter what little sub-culture you were shifted into whilst going through the trials and tribulations of Secondary school you could relate to it.
It may have been clichéd but what film isn't, we like certain elements we can relate to otherwise what would we take from films.
Judd Nelson gives a convincing performance of 'Bender' the criminal. He managed to sway from angry to emotional - making you feel for him when he is describing what things are like at 'his house'. He seemed to have a lot of great lines including the Manilow comment! The emotion in this film is immense considering it is a teenage film - and touches on 5 lost characters who seem to be searching for some type of approval or acceptance. (Just like our-selves) Ringwald shows just how versatile she is, and very different from Pretty in Pink. I heard that Ally Sheedy originally went for Ringwalds part and they swapped?
Emilio Estevez carrys his role off very well as a Jock - it gets a little cringe worthy when hes high at the end - and rushing around like a loony. But the end with Ally Sheedy certainly makes up for it.
The ending is good, however even ten years later after I first saw this film I always wanted to know what they did the next day!
This is such a great film, I can relate to it so much! I love it is truly the best, you can watch over and over and never get tired of it.
The Breakfast Club is about a group of students who wind up serving detention on a Saturday for their mishaps. There's the jock, a princess, a rebel, a basket case and a brain. I liked this one because it was definitely interesting to see what they do on a Saturday in detention. Judd Nelson is funny as the rebel. Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy are sexy as the princess and the basket case. Anthony Michael Hall and Emilio Estevez are the cool ones as the brain and the jock. This movie is great if you can hack the corny eightiesness that occasionally pops its head up. The issues may not seem deep to adults who have mortgages etc. But there is still something that teenagers (whether in the 80s, 90s or 00s) see of themselves in this movie, that have kept it as a cult classic.
If you could put your finger on it, one might say John Hughes was very much a genius in many ways. Writing and directing The Breakfast Club, Hughes went beyond the boundaries of the high school system. Five different kids, (Alley Sheedy, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Elmo Estivez) end up in detention on a Saturday morning. What starts off to be weird moments for each of them turns into a special bonding moment that redefined who they really were. Ranked within the top three most popular movies of 1985, the film has aged well. The film is also probably the most pivital of a series of teenaged movies of the 80s known as the Brat Pack.
The epitome of a 80's teen flik (amongst others)! If you haven't seen it, it's worth a look. A tribute to the 'me generation'. The acting is as well as can be expected from a group of young (& up and coming at that time) actors & actresses. The story depicts a group of high school kids that get a Saturday detention and, learn abit about themselves as well as each other with an oppressive (& anal) teacher overseeing them. You may call it a 'coming of age' for these kids. But, the flik is peasantly amusing (it's become a cult too) with just a touch of seriousness. Typical (& cool) 80's soundtrack. Can't beat Simple Minds 'Don't you forget about me'. And finally, if you didn't live thru the 80's (I was a senior in HS when this flik debuted), it's a flik that I'm sure you can identify with. Well, enjoy.
The Breakfast Club is a master piece of a film that very cleverly portrays the interaction of high school kids from different clicks on a Saturday detention. There's a freak, a jock, a princess, a weirdo and a brain all sentenced to do a Saturday detention under the supervision of a neurotic teacher. They start out in conflict but gradually learn to like and even defend one another. It's the kind of movie that's really hard to stop watching and wish would go on when it's over. It's an older film but does have an all star cast. This is a funny, often touching film that shouldn't be missed. A sure classic.
