The Breakfast Club is about 5 high school teenagers from different walks of life, they  go to detention on a Saturday and have to stay together in the detention room (library) for the whole day. They end up telling each other a little about their life, causing the very different but similar individuals to come together and change there perspective of the others around them.

The main characters that played them were:
-power-hungry principal (Paul Gleason)                                                                                                   -rebel John (Judd Nelson)                                                                                                                     -princess Claire (Molly Ringwald)                                                                                                                -outcast Allison (Ally Sheedy)                                                                                                                     -brainy Brian (Anthony Michael Hall)                                                                                               -Andrew (Emilio Estevez), the jock

John Hughes is the screenplayer of The Breakfast Club.  He is an American film director, producer, and screenwriter. He directed and wrote some of the most succesful comedy films, like: Ferris Buellers Day Off, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Weird Science, Home Alone and more.

The breakfast club was such a funny movie, it teaches you that different people in different clicks can come together and become friends.  For example I remember 3 scenes specifically

  • When the bad boy was harrasing the ‘princess’ of their highschool, he was pressuring her to tell the truth about if she does dirty deeds. The school jock was defending her and making fun of the school bad boy.
  • When the rebel/bad boy had weed in his locker and the group of people who had detenion came with him to get the weed, he sacrificed himself to get more introuble because the jock (Andrew) took the wrong turn.
  •  When they all went to the second floor of the library and talked about why they all went to detention and then started talking about what would happen after today, because their perspectives of each other has changed dramatically.

I really liked the movie, it was funny, wierd and just different in general. I would give this movie a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
