Product Description


John Hughes's popular 1985 teen drama finds a diverse group of high school students--a jock (Emilio Estevez), a metalhead (Judd Nelson), a weirdo (Ally Sheedy), a princess (Molly Ringwald), and a nerd (Anthony Michael Hall)--sharing a Saturday in detention at their high school for one minor infraction or another. Over the course of a day, they talk through the social barriers that ordinarily keep them apart, and new alliances are born, though not without a lot of pain first. Hughes (Sixteen Candles), who wrote and directed, is heavy on dialogue but he also thoughtfully refreshes the look of the film every few minutes with different settings and original viewpoints on action. The movie deals with such fundamentals as the human tendency toward bias and hurting the weak, and because the characters are caught somewhere between childhood and adulthood, it's easy to get emotionally involved in hope for their redemption. Preteen and teenage kids love this film, incidentally. The DVD release includes production notes, cast and crew bios, widescreen presentation, Dolby sound, closed captioning, optional French and Spanish soundtracks, and optional Spanish subtitles. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Still relevant after all these years June 30 2004
By Lauren
Some question the durability of "The Breakfast Club," saying that the themes and plotlines do not hold up in today's teen society. As a 15-year-old, I would like to say that that is thoroughly untrue. 19 years after its release, "The Breakfast Club" is still a truthful, relateable account of teenagers and their personalities, and the ways in which they interact with each other. Sure, the stereotypes of the characters may be a bit exaggerated -- but that's necessary in order to get the point across. Watching this movie, I feel as if I know these people, or at least I've run across them at one point in my high school career.
The plot, as most people know, involves five different kids being assigned Saturday detention together. Each kid represents a typical high school stereotype -- a princess (Molly Ringwald), a jock (Emilio Estevez), a brain (Anthony Michael Hall), a basket case (the excellent Ally Sheedy), and a criminal (Judd Nelson). At the beginning of the day, none of them know each other, except for the princess and the jock. Throughout the day, they learn more about each other and work at tearing down the stereotypes that pit them against each other. As for the reviewer who said this isn't realistic that they would open up so much to each other -- it absolutely is. Put five kids into a room without an adult for nine hours, and they will talk about anything.
The beauty of this movie is the depth of the characters beyond the stereotypes -- particularly the nerd, Brian, who as we find out in the movie has problems well beyond what people think of him. He is the one that I most relate to in the movie. Watch "The Breakfast Club," and see who you most relate to. It's a great experience. Beyond the social commentary aspect, it's also just a funny movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars i would give it 6 stars if i could Nov. 26 2005
By Rachel
this is one of THE best teen movies, ever! granted, it's an 80's flick, but one of the most worth seeing. My favourite character would have to be Bender (Judd Nelson), i love his sarcasm, his anger, and his all-out obvious perversions on love interest Claire (Molly Ringwald). Watch his eyes; it's all in the eyes.
All in all, it was a really good ensemble of characters and makes profound points about high school hierarchies and how teens relate to their parents (many of those points still applicable today, 2005!). even though the ending was a little predictable, i personally loved this movie and thank Hughes for producing one of the best teen movies i've ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have to any collection. June 23 2004
The quintessential John Hughes film. I remember in my English class my junior year (1987) we had to analyze this movie. Only 2 years after it's release it was had all the qualities needed for a class analysis. I will spare you the report that I did back then.
Since then I have watched this movie at least once a year (and contrary to popular believe it is not for the panty shot). The characters are very well done. There is something that anyone who went through high school can relate to, even if we fit more than just one character. The interactions between the teens towards each other and then towards the principal as a group is classic. It's got love, teen angst, popular kids, geeks, dweebs, outcasts and the ever popular kid that doesn't fit in but always tries to get the attention. Nothing like dumping out your bag for people to go through to get attention.
Of course you can't forget the star cast of strong 80's actors, Emilio Estevez (Andrew 'Andy') Anthony Michael Hall (Brian) Judd Nelson (John Bender) Molly Ringwald (Claire) Ally Sheedy (Allison) and Paul Gleason (Principal). Great acting, John's look at teenagers and a great script all make for a very enjoyable look at the interactions and 'attitude' typical of the high school years.
I truly could go on about this movie but I won't. I'll just say that this is a much have for any movie buff and if you haven't seen it you must.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great movie.Almost pefect. June 13 2004
By A Customer
Ive watched this so many times Ive lost count.The 2 people I can relate to the most are John(Judd Nelson) and Allison(Ally Sheedy).While I related most to John in high school because I was angry at the more socially accepted crowd and sort of dressed grungy too, I relate more to Allison now that Im an adult and in college(21 that would be I know Im still kind of a kid to some of you).I think its because Im autistic so I feel kind of like the quiet outcast to some people and yeah some people do just think Im sort of weird I can also relate to Allison more at the end of the movie.I think its cause Ive felt for a while that nobody liked me but when I started talking and some people started to help me break out of my shell a little bit I felt pretty damn good.I can also relate to Brian a little bit cause of all the stress that homework and grades can give you.I cant really relate to Claire and Andy all that well but those characters show me that they arent as superficial as they appear.They have problems and feelings too.I think this movie helped me out a lot and I dont know what its like for most people who watch it but to me its kind of like an emotional rollercoaster.Parts of it still make me cry no matter how much I see it.Its that good.
