The Breakfast Club

Ever since the 90's, when you think about teen movies you think about comedies about teenagers getting wasted and getting laid. Well, back in the 80's this movie came out and changed that whole genre. This movie is nothing like the ones after it.

Five students must stay in the school's library a Saturday as a punishment for very different things. At first they are aggressive to each other, but slowly they begin to know each other better and discover that they all have problems.

What I like the most are the characters. Sure, they may seem a little stereotyped, but that's just to make it simpler for the audience to relate to them. By the end of this you'll feel like you've known a part of you better.


"But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Does that answer your question?" - The Breakfast Club

  50. Just watched Slam Nation (Saul Williams was in it so I figured I ought to, lol) and in one of his funny, awesome poems, Beau Sia was talking about having dinner with the cast of The Breakfast Club and repeatedly saying "It really seems like your careers would have taken off after that!" lulz
