The Breakfast Club
4.80 / 5 based on 411 Reviews
They were five students with nothing in common, faced with spending a Saturday detention together in their high school library. At 7 a.m., they had nothing to say, but by 4 p.m. they had bared their souls to each other and become good friends. John Hughes, creator of the critically acclaimed Sixteen Candles, wrote, directed and produced this hilarious and often touching comedy starring Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy. To the outside world they were simply the Jock, the Brain, the Criminal, the Princess and the Kook, but to each other, they would always be The Breakfast Club.see more...

Classic! I love this movie so so so much. It teaches you a lot and makes you realize really important things. I watched it before I started high school and it really showed me the reality of high school. Very awesome movie
I love 80s films and this is one of my favorites! I just love how each of a different clique came out to work their differences out in detention and it is so funny!!
A Classic. John Hughes Was A Genius. Like Many Of His Other Movies The Breakfast Club Is Definitely A Movie That Everyone Should Watch At Least Once In Their Life.
This classic film has an amazing story line and is pretty relate-able to real life. They had someone from all social levels in high school; from the popular girl/guy to the nerd and the outcasts. This is a must see!
The Breakfast Club is a great classic movie. I could watch this movie at least once a year. It is a great way of showing what high school life may have been like.
