The Breakfast Club (1985)

Title: The Breakfast Club (1985)
Starring: Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy
Directed by: John Hughes

The story line follows five teenagers with different personalities, each a member of a different high school clique, who spend a Saturday in detention altogether and come to realize that they are all more than their respective stereotypes, while facing a strict disciplinarian.

The first few minutes of this film were boring, IMO. I find the scenes really dull and dead. The characters didn't even have lines (or utter only few words) and I was on the verge of clicking the stop button. Yet, I still gave it a chance since it was recommended by someone who has good taste in movies.

Well, I did just right.

The characters, one by one, started making an impact. Each character has different persona and views in life that everyone can relate to. The plot was simple but the lines delivered by the actors are impressive. According to IMDb, the actors did lots of ad-lib's, making every scene realistic and catchy.

This movie has proved its worth. It implied great sense and values especially for teenagers and people my age. Just another John Hughes high-grossing film. You may want to check his other 80s flicks starring the Brat Packs here.
