The Breakfast Club

John Hughes' classic ‘80s teen drama. A Saturday morning detention period turns into a heartfelt bonding session between five high school stereotypes. Stars Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson and Molly Ringwald.

A brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel and a recluse are confined to their school library, serving an eight hour, fifty four minute disciplinary sentence under the strict eye of assistant principal Richard Vernon (Paul Gleason).

Does director John Hughes really believe, as he writes here, that 'when you grow up, your heart dies.' It may. But not unless the brain has already started to rot with films like this.

The five young stars would have mixed well even without the fraudulent encounter-group candor towards which The Breakfast Club forces them.

The Breakfast Club doesn't need earthshaking revelations; it's about kids who grow willing to talk to one another, and it has a surprisingly good ear for the way they speak.

Good and bad, it's still the definitive '80s teen movie.

Shot in sequence during 1984, The Breakfast Club became a benchmark for all that followed in the genre.
