In the simplest and in their own terms, Claire is a princess, Andrew an athlete, John a criminal, Brian a brain, and Allison a basket case. But one other thing they do have in common is a nine hour detention in the school library together on Saturday, March 24, 1984, under the direction of Mr. Vernon, supervising from his office across the hall. Each is required to write a minimum one thousand word essay during that time about who they think they are. At the beginning of those nine hours, each, if they were indeed planning on writing that essay, would probably write something close to what the world sees of them, and what they have been brainwashed into believing of themselves. But based on their adventures during that nine hours, they may come to a different opinion of themselves and the other four.
Plot: Five high school students from different walks of life endure a Saturday detention under a power-hungry principal. The disparate group includes rebel John, princess Claire, outcast Allison, brainy Brian and Andrew, the jock. Each has a chance to tell his or her story, making the others see them a little differently — and when the day ends, they question whether school will ever be the same.

The brain, the athlete, the princess, the basket case, and the criminal – yes we’re talking about _The Breakfast Club_. It’s been dubbed as a seminal film of the 1980s and takes a place as an intergenerational classic.
_They were five students with nothing in common, faced with spending a Saturday detention together in their high school library. At 7.00am they had nothing to say, but by 4.00pm they had bared their souls to each other and become The Breakfast Club._
Directed by John Hughes and starring Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, and Ally Sheedy it rightly deserves that spot as a revered movie. It’s very much a comedy-drama and is surprisingly deep in parts, like the scene toward the end where they are all explaining what they did to get the detention. The acting is brilliant, and even though there is a very small cast, its basically the five members of The Breakfast Club and the Vice Principal, they hold your attention because they are so good.
What I particularly liked was how they took the standard college stereotypes and then slowly deconstructed them over the course of the movie, and showed that they actually all had a lot in common. They all had their loves and hates, their sensitivities, and the burden of expectation from their parents, the school, and society as a whole.
It’s funny, it’s sad, and by the time it concludes, it’s quite uplifting, and if it’s been a while since you saw it, it might be time to load it up for another look. If you’ve never seen it, then I suggest you check it out for a great time capsule of a movie that has themes that still resonate today.
_**Forced, artificial dialogs with eye-rolling character arcs**_
Released in 1985 and written & directed by John Hughes, “The Breakfast Club” is a teen dramedy about five high school students from five different sub-cultures during an all-day detention over the weekend at their suburban Chicago school. Molly Ringwald plays the popular girl, Emilio Estevez the jock, Anthony Michael Hall the Brainiac nerd, Judd Nelson the dope-smoking rebel and Ally Sheedy the neurotic misfit. Paul Gleason and John Kapelos are on hand as the host principal and janitor respectively
This movie has a big reputation as an 80’s teen flick, but I was wholly disappointed. Most of the discussions between the five students from different cliques come across contrived and unconvincing. Some of the dialog is actually cringe-inducing.
The hoodlum could’ve worked as a character, like the Fonz or Vinnie Barbarino, but he’s such an annoying, loud-mouthed jerk that he loses all sympathy, particularly when he verbally rapes the redhead on multiple occasions for no ostensible reason. *** SPOILER ALERT*** The fact that the two end up together at the end adds insult to injury. ***END SPOILER*** Not to mention two others that unrealistically couple up.
It’s strange that “The Breakfast Club” is billed as a comedy because there’s very little that’s funny, although it’s occasionally entertaining, like some of the music sequences. Unfortunately, Hughes wasn’t into the heavier side of rock and so the soundtrack consists solely of bland 80’s new wave bands, like his other 80’s teen flicks (e.g. “Sixteen Candles,” “Pretty in Pink” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”). Don’t get me wrong, there are a couple of quality songs, like “We Are Not Alone” by Karla DeVito, but where are the heavier popular bands of 1984, like Van Halen, Scorpions, Judas Priest, Ratt, Dokken, Queensryche, Def Leppard, AC/DC or Motley Crue? Is it asking too much to have ONE song that actually rocks?
But the music is the least of the movie’s problems (and isn’t really a problem at all, except that there aren’t any heavy tracks). The actors are fine, but Hughes’ dialog is unconvincing. As such, you don’t buy the characters. The script needed a serious rewrite.
The movie runs 97 minutes and was shot in the suburbs north of Chicago.
One of the best movies ever
After reading some of the negative comments made about this movie, i decided to make some of my own. Yes, to younger viewers,this movie will appear to be outdated. The only thing “outdated” is the clothing styles and the music. It doesnt matter what year you went to high school or what school you even went to, there will always be a “criminal”, a “jock”, a “princess”, a “nerd”, and a “basket case”. This movie is the best teenage movie, no matter when you are a teenager!
Possibly the best high school film ever made
During the 1980s there were plenty of films set in US high schools; John Hughes made the best of these and ‘The Breakfast Club’ is a contender for the best of his films. The film takes place on a Saturday when five pupils have to spend their day in detention; they are ‘brain’ Brian, ‘athlete’ Andrew, ‘basket case’ Allison, ‘princess’ Claire and ‘criminal’ John. While there they are told they must write an essay about who they are and even though they are meant to sit in silence they get to know each other as the day progresses. At first they think they have nothing in common but after arguments, discussions and confrontations they discover that they aren’t that different. While they are getting to know each other the teacher who is supervising them end up in the basement discussing how children have, or haven’t changed over the years.
The actors do a great job; with Ally Sheedy as Allison, Molly Ringwald as Claire, Emilio Estevez as Andrew, Judd Nelson as Bender, Anthony Michael Hall as Brian and Paul Gleason as disenchanted teacher Mr. Vernon. Set entirely in school there is little action; the strength of the film relies almost entirely on great dialogue excellently delivered it doesn’t hurt that there is a great ’80s soundtrack either! Considered a comedy there are plenty of laughs to be had but there are also several poignant scenes that are almost tear-jerking in the run up the a great feel good ending. If you have yet to see this film I strongly recommend it; it is a classic of its period and genre; a real must see.
