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.

Not a fan. My friends are all obsessed. Maybe I'm just annoyed of them talking about it? Idk I didn't find it interesting. It was just another movie in my eyes. Not a must watch I can't ever sit through the whole thing...

I really didn't like this movie. I am going to be honest. I know it is a classic but I greatly disliked it.

I personally didn't like the movie, I felt it was very basic and boring. I wish it had a better story line/ plot.

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.

This is a great classic movie, although it's not a favorite its pretty good! I love the ending and the song it is also one of my favorite scenes and the only reason I like the movie. The actors were pretty good I would definitely recommend this movie to others

I might be the only person that's kind of "meh" about this movie. It's not bad, but it isn't the kind of movie that I'd watch over and over.

A classic for sure but not one of my personal favorites. It moved too slow for me and I found myself getting bored a lot. (don't hate me!)

This is a classic movie that will never get old for anyone to watch. Even referenced in current movies such as pitch perfect

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?
