The Breakfast Club

From this 1980’s classic movie, I give this a straight ‘A’ on this movie. As it can change your life forever. At a high school outside of Chicago, Illinois, on Friday, March 23rd, 1984, five students got in trouble for what they did that was a bad idea. A beauty queen skipping class to go shopping, a brain that accidentally let off a flare gun in his locker, an athlete pulling a prank on another male student in the locker room, a criminal that pulled a false fire alarm, and a basket case which is a shy girl that just want to be by herself.

That was why on Saturday, March 24th, 1984, while everyone was chilling out on the weekend, they had to spend the entire Saturday in detention. As they share together, those five students really hated their parents, and how they were picking on them.

Around the 1980’s like “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, adults were serious about teenagers and kids for what they are doing. Parents like them, teachers, sister nuns from “Pan”, and that principal in this movie were like Mr. Hand from that movie, when they were serious. As they changed their lives forever, these five students here, they became good friends.

When the day was done, they became known as ‘The Breakfast Club’. For what they did in detention, than besides sitting in a seat, writing an essay was the fun they can ever have. Listening to rock and roll on a record player, smoking, having good jokes, and more, this was the best time of their lives.

With good quotes, funny scenes and more, this movie became one of the most popular movies of all time. That song, “Don’t You Forget About Me” from Simple Minds made it good, as it was nominated. And before David Bowie died in 2015, he wrote a really great quote on how it shows this movie. And to these students.

In fact, with the brain being single, the athlete and the shy girl fell in love together after they changed. As for the beauty queen, she fell in love with the criminal. She gave him one of her diamond earrings.

With Charlie Sheen’s brother, Emilio Estevez, Molly Ringwald since “Sixteen Candles”, Anthony Michael Hall before “Weird Science”, Alley Sheedy before “Short Circuit”, Judd Nelson before “The Transformers: The Movie” in 1986, and Paul Gleason before “Die Hard”, 3 years later.

As I give a straight ‘A’ on this, John Hughes really loved making movies on high school life.
