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.

Absolutely one of my favorite movies from the 80's. The soundtrack has some great music. The actors are good and really show what high school can be like. Think it would be a great movie to watch with your teens on a movie night. Bullying has been in every generation.

A classic film that any teenager or adult should see. Super interesting story lines and actor development. I had to watch it for my psychology class and realized how in deep the film actually is. There is humor, sadness, drama and love which all makes for a great movie.

One of my favorite cult classics. I love the acting, the music, and the scenery. There is not a thing that I do not like about this movie. I cannot count the number of times that I have watched this. If it comes on TV, I tune in! This would be one that I would buy.

I think we can all relate to at least one of these characters from high school..... the jock, the snob, the nerd, the outcast, the trouble maker. we all wore labels in school. We were branded as belonging to one of those groups somehow and by someone....and we all had our hidden stories to tell.

We learn that we can't judge a book by its cover through John Hughes in this classic 80's film. he seems to understand the teen like no other director during the 80s. a classic but really it is timeless.

I could never figure out why this movie was such a well known and loved classic until I watched it again in college. I finally understood and could relate to the story line and characters I finally appreciated the acting. It's just a good nostalgic coming of age story

Everyone should watch this movie when they are in high school.  It's not bad for anyone who is in high school. Just don't ruin the movie at an early age when the perfect time to watch it is while you are in high school. I would watch it again and again

Literally an all time classic that is still great to watch today, a group of misfit kids coming together to realize that life is short so have a little fun, great sound track and cast keeps you engaged and interested during the entire movie, two thumbs up

Classicccccccc. This movie is great. You might think why because I mean nothing really happens in the movie. I kid you not. They are just kids in detainsion but the fact that they open up to one another and get to kill stereotypes between them is great

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?
