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.

A classic movie! 1 of the best of the 80's. Love the characters and the story! And "Don't you forget about me" will always remind me of the end of the 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

Forever one of my favorite cult classic movies. I introduced this movie to many nay sayer friends who weren't into 80's movies-they are now believers ;-)

I remember watching this movie all the time in Spanish class. Not in Spanish or even with Spanish subtitles, but just watching the movie. It was so good!!

Classic movie. Amazing cast. Amazing soundtrack. It's just a classic. It perfectly defines high school stereotypes, and shows how they can come together.

I was a little girl when the first came out but it was still cool to watch as a teen and I still love it today as an adult. High school drama never ends.

One of my all time favorite movies. A definitely cult classic. If you have not seen this movie, put it on your radar at least to say you have seen it!

I remember watching this as a young teen. Loved it! Though not sure I'd let my young teens watch it now... What's an appropriate age for today's kids to view this movie?
