The Breakfast Club

half a star
The Breakfast Club Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:In Theatre Saw at/with: With Jessica
Rating: R Year: 1985 Category: Drama
Director: John Hughes Time: 97 min. Writer: John Hughes

Mine: Hour and a half of stupid suburban angst! I guess that to like this film you must have grown up in the suburbs. I did not, and so find it quite anoying! Just seems self endulgent and stupid.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A bold experiment in the era of teen raunch movies (written and directed by a man who's made more than his share): five kids sit and talk about themselves, during day-long detention. Alternately poignant, predictable, and self-important, but filled with moments of truth and perception.

This is one of those nostalgia films of the 80s. Great cast! Humor is kinda crude (as with most John Hughes films), but it's a GREAT look into how and why we act the way we do. Simply good stuff. This also features the song "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds. Self-indulgent? Bah!
