The Breakfast Club

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...

Is there even any reason to review this? Everyone knows (or should know) how wonderful this movie is. The end scene with that fist pump in the air gives me chills every single time.
I had always heard about how great this movie is from my older siblings, and when I finally watched it for myself, I fell in love. This is a great, emotional, and funny film.
This movie is the perfect combination of funny and touching. I love the story line in this movie and I don't think I've ever met anyone that didn't feel the same way about it.
I love this movie, this is one of those classics that will never get old, such a good cast. Couldnt have picked better people. I own both the dvd and vhs, hehe! Classic 80s!
Classic movie that applies to anyone of any age. i think this movie will never be dated or cheesy. anyone one that has ever been a teenager related to this movie.
One of the classics of the 80's. One i never get tired of watching! Could not ask for a better cast back then. Easy to pick a character that you could relate to.
Love this movie, it has heart, humor and deals with real stuff. Its unique and an 80's classic. I highly recommend just sitting down and watching this movie!
This John Hughs Film is a classic and so good. If you have not seen it you should. It's a great peek at the 80's with a classic story that is still relevant
The breakfast club is a classic movie. I remember my mom telling me she had watched it, and then I did, and I am sure I will make my kids watch it as well.
Who doesn't love this movie? it really is amazing and is one of the greatest movies. it really is inspiring and sort of captures how high school is in a way.
