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.

This movie is such a classic! I loved watching it through high school, since it was so common...even though this was released about 30 years ago.

The most classic coming of age movie. The soundtrack is incredible and sounds great on vinyl. Everyone should watch before they go to high school.

This is a wonderful movie about the struggles of being a teenager, the need to find acceptance and the pressures different peer groups are under.

This movie is ranted and raved about. There is a character each viewer can connect to, but I found the movie lacked a certain emotional depth.

Probably my favorite movie of all time. Very very entertaining to see what kids did when they had a Saturday detention - and their rebellions.

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?
