Great Movie When I was a kid there were a ton of teen movies being thrown at us. This movie stood out because it wasn't just another teen film about the frog transforming into the prince. Breakfast Club gave the viewer an in depth look into not only the character but what made the character into what he or she is today. A jock, a geek, a jerk, a freak, and Barbie. It shows that we can overcome preconceived public views of ourselves. It let's the viewer believe that differences can be overcome no matter how insurmountable they may seem. A must see!!
Childhood Favorite! This movie is one of my all time favorites! I've watched it for years, and can quote almost the entire movie, bit I still fail to get tired of the movie. I still laugh at the funny parts and cry on the sad ones. This has to be one of the greatest, realest, most relatable, ageless movies I've ever seen. I show this to anyone who hasn't seen it and I'll be showing this to my kids one day too.
Compelling 30 years ago at its premiere, I watched "The Breakfast Club." At the time, it was a fun teen comedy that reminded me of how much I was over the high school experience. Now, years later, I appreciate just how compelling and poignant this movie still is. Its message is more about the adults we become, than the teenagers we once were. My goal is to never have my heart die and to always embrace my inner brain, athlete, basket case, princess, and criminal that resides in all of us.
I would rate 1,000,000,000 if I could After seeing pitch perfect, I wanted to see the breakfast club! My dad talked about the all the time, and after seeing it a couple times already knew all the lines! It's a movie I can watch forever. I also like Allison. I think I want to be like her 😏 this movie made me want detention 😂
My Favorite Movie in my lifetime I maybe a 90s baby but i love this movie I've seen it a billion times and never get tired. Its typical high school students. Nerd,Jocks,Cheerleaders,Popular Kid, and the Weirdo. Love it,, this is one movie that simply can't be make over! its that GOOD!! ^__^
All time favorite! Words cannot articulate how how much I love this movie! It is my favorite teen film. But I do recommend that you watch it when you are 17+ considering it is rated (R) and contains strong language. But I think that every teen can relate to this film in a way. I wish John Hughes was still with us. R.I.P. John Hughes.
No one does teen angst like John Hughes. With a main cast of only five people Hughes gives us a look at what it really feels like to be a teen and shows us that, despite how different we may look from one another on the outside, inside we are all pretty much struggling with the same issues.
Best teen movie I have never seen a movie that is done as well as this one. The cast is fantastic and ports their characters with a realism I can't find in other movies. No matter your age I think this is film worth watching for every generation.
Problems I love this movie its great but i hate google play. I bought the movie and i want to watch it when im in my car but i can only do that with wifi. If i have bought and downloaded the movie, why do i have to have wifi?
A Timeless Classic This is by far one of my favorite movies of all time, and I was born ten years after it came out. It is something all generations can relate to. I recommend this movie to everyone. Watch it at least once
The Breakfast Club Handful of Senior Year students, each from different ends of the student body popularity spectrum, gather in their school's library on a Saturday for detention. They all learn a bit about eachother, and a lot about themselves.
Sam Baker's (Molly Ringwald) 16th birthday should be perfect and memorable, but her whole family is so preoccupied with her older sister's (Blanche Baker) wedding that they completely forget her big day. But catching the eye of Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) would make everything better for Sam. Anthony Michael Hall, John Cusack, Gedde Watanabe and Haviland Morris co-star in writer-director John Hughes's classic 1980s teen-angst comedy.
Teen sensations Molly Ringwald (Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club) and Andrew McCarthy (St. Elmo's Fire) drew raves for their starring performances in this hit love story by John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off). She's a high school girl from the wrong side of town. He's the wealthy heart-throb who asks her to the prom. But as fast as their romance builds, it's threatened by the painful reality of peer pressure. A bittersweet story with an upbeat ending and a phenomenal rock score, Pretty in Pink also stars Harry Dean Stanton, Jon Cryer, James Spader and Annie Potts.
One spring day, toward the end of his senior year, Ferris gives in to an overwhelming urge to cut school and head for downtown Chicago with his girl (Mia Sara) and his best friend (Alan Ruck), to see the sights, experience a day of freedom and show that with a little ingenuity, a bit of courage and a red Ferrari, life at 17 can be a joy!
Chicago. Another town, another innocent scam for vagabond Bill Dancer (Jim Belushi of K-9 and Red Heat) and the curly-topped orphan he's cared for since infancy. But this time, Bill hits the jackpot: his newest con whisks them both from the poorhouse to the penthouse with lots of laughs along the way. Nine-year-old Alisan Porter (Parenthood, Stella) teams with Belushi, taking the title role in John Hughes' comedy that charmed moviegoers from coast to coast. Kelly Lynch (Road House, Drugstore Cowboy) joins the heartwarming fun as an attorney who falls for their scheme and takes them home. It's a situation that seems too good to be true. And it turns topsy-turvy when Lynch's jealous boyfriend intervenes. Reviewer Pat Collins of WWOR-TV pronounced Curly Sue "the feel-good comedy of the season." But with Hughes' wisecracking wit and tender touch, it's really a prize entertainment for any season. MPAA Rating: PG (c) 1991 Warner Bros. All Rights Reserved
From the creative mind of legendary filmmaker John Hughes comes one of his funniest and most unique looks at high school adolescence.

An aspiring writer faces up to the responsibilities of marriage and family in this romantic comedy from writer, director, and producer John Hughes. Despite the misgivings he pours out to best friend Davis McDonald (Alec Baldwin), Jake Briggs (Kevin Bacon) marries high-school sweetheart Kristy (Elizabeth McGovern). After an abortive attempt at graduate school in New Mexico, the couple settle in suburban Chicago. Jake fakes his way into a job as an advertising copywriter, while Kristy settles into her own corporate job. The couple face the typical ups and downs of any new marriage, especially after Davis visits with a bimbo on his arm, regaling his pal Jake with tales of the good life. A few years later, Kristy decides to stop taking her birth-control pills — and tells Jake about it three months later. Plagued by doubts, unfulfilled ambitions, and images of a fantasy girl (Isabel Lorca) he once spotted in a club, Jake resists the idea of fatherhood. Then he finds out he has low sperm count and, his manhood thus challenged, lines up for fertility clinic-assisted stud duty. The birth doesn't go as smoothly as Jake expected, however, setting the stage for climactic realizations. Edie McClurg, who played the nosy school secretary in Hughes' Ferris Bueller's Day Off, makes a cameo appearance as an officious neighbor. In addition, a who's who of other Hughes alums and Hollywood stars lend their faces and voices to a series of closing-credits shots in which each suggests a name for the titular baby.
The Frankenstein legend takes an uproarious twist in this outrageous special effects-laden comedy from the writer-director of Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club. Critically acclaimed filmmaker John Hughes is at it again, giving nerdy computer whiz Ilan Mitchell-Smith and his best friend, Anthony Michael Hall, power to create the "perfect woman" (Kelly LeBrock). Like a computer-generated fairy godmother, the duo's out-of-this-world creation guides the pair through the pleasures and pitfalls of adolescence. With a rock beat supplied by many music superstars including Oingo Boingo, this far-out, sci-fi fable brings everyone's favorite teen fantasies to life through the miracle of Weird Science.

Comedy acting legend John Candy turns in a signature performance in this effort from director John Hughes as a notoriously irresponsible uncle left to care for his brother's kids during a family crisis.

Wealthy teenager Charlie Bartlett (Anton Yelchin) is failing miserably at fitting in at a new public high school run by the world-weary Principal Gardner (Robert Downey, Jr.). As he begins to better understand the social hierarchy, Charlie's honest charm and likeability positions him as the resident "psychiatrist" dishing out advice, and the occasional prescription, to his fellow students in need. Along the way, he decides to take some of his own advice, thus wielding a witty dark comedy about the angst-filled years before college.
Angus is fat, dorky and smart, a kid with an uncool pal and a crush on a cheerleader. Angus is funny, rowdy and triumphant, a totally cool movie with a dead-on eye and ear for the hilarious, heartbreaking rite of passage called high school. A great cast (including Academy Award® winners* George C. Scott and Kathy Bates as Angus's oddball family) sparks this story about what happens when Angus is named King of the Winter Ball as a prank -- and how he turns humiliation into victory. Angus, Roger Ebert wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times, "delivers a rousing 'up yours' to all the snotty high school golden boys [and] a climax that I, for one, found wholly the equal of anything in Rocky."
A funny and touching coming-of-age story, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER is a modern classic that captures the dizzying highs and crushing lows of high school.

James Van Der Beek (Dawson's Creek) leads the action in this exciting, funny coming-of-age story about a small-town high schooler confronting the pressures and temptations of gridiron glory. At first, backup quarterback Jonathan "Mox" Moxom (Van Der Beek) is nowhere close to being a football star. He's perfectly content to stay on the bench and out of the win-at-all-cost strategies of coach Bud Kilmer (Jon Voight in a powerful performance). But when the starting quarterback is injured, Mox is in the game, and in direct conflict with his hotheaded coach and girlfriend. Soon everyone in Mox's football-crazed community will realize there's not just a new star quarterback in town, there's a new kind of hero.
