Breakfast Club

The plot follows five students at Shermer High School in Shermer, Illinois as they report for Saturday detention. (Fun fact about the high school where the movie was filmed, its called Maine North High School, it is a public four-year high school located in Northbrook, Illinois, that’s the high school my father attended for all four years of schooling).
The five teens that show up for Saturday detention are all different in many ways. The first, of the teens is Bender a trouble making punk rock kid who likes to give everyone a hard time. The second is Andrew a wrestler jock who doesn’t like to take crap ...view middle of the document...

In the case of Brian the nerd, he was so overwhelmed with school peers, grades, and his parents that he was ready to end his life. The movies point was to show that in all schools each kid is having a problem no matter what it is and it doesn’t matter what group or click you are in not to judge a person.
In my opinion this is a must see movie for everyone. I was told to watch this movie by my father five years ago, and as soon as I watched it I have loved it ever sense. I was skeptical to watch the movie because it was so old, and in my experience in the past I didn’t like the older movies. I wasn’t crazy about the graphics and everything that was entitled with an old movie. Even though I had the thoughts about this movie I trusted my dad and gave the movie a try.

Director-writer Hughes, though he gives the material a sense of fun and achieves several moments of genuine warmth, too often resorts to obvious clichés, stereotypes, and easy answers”.

Besides the fact that John Hughes created a movie completely abstract from the norm of the movies in that era and started a new trend of movies everywhere. He gathered a wonderful cast of upcoming stars that would set the stage for some wonderful movies to come in the future. The stars Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, and Ally Sheedy, who worked in eight Hughes films. Roger Ebert wrote in an article speaking about the young actors saying, “Some of those actors, freed from their confinement under Hughes, and later became known as the Brat Pack. Hughes took the teenagers seriously, and his films are distinctive for showing them as individuals with real hopes, ambitions, problems and behavior. Hughes says: “Kids are smart enough to know that most teenage movies are just exploiting them,” he told me on the set of "The Breakfast Club." “They’ll respond to a film about teenagers as people. [My] movies are about the beauty of just growing up”. After Hughes started these kids out with Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club he continued to be the premiere writer of the 80s and 90s coming out with a more hits such as...
