How are the adult characters portrayed in this movie? A varsity wrestler feels bad about being pressed by his father to excel. The reason for this is people stick with others that are similar to them. A popular girl feels bad that her high status forces her to shun less popular kids. A great choice for older teens. The Princess Ringwald and the Criminal Nelson get together and the Basket Case Sheedy and Athlete Estevez also end up together.
Derogatory sexual slurs, insults about body size, and name-calling are heard. Do teens feel that their high school has a similar clique structure? Hall is appealingly vulnerable as the shy kid with the most smarts. Just like a church retreat or therapy session, their lives unfold and bond in a few hours. While the former category was hard-pressed to give birth to a vaguely watchable entry, quality was widely variable in the latter, spanning the spectrum from the dregs of Porky's to the top-notch entertainment of Fast Times at Ridgemont High. The greatest secret to be reveled is that they have more in common than any of them thought. The brutish father of the rebel Judd Nelson beats him. Welcome to my new channel.
As each of the five students does his or her emotional striptease, we have to respect their suffering. I have seen the movie and yes it was funny but I was also not a Christian at the time. Do you relate to any of them? I was that way when I was a teenager, and to some extent I still am. So When I first watched this film, I was surprised at what I seen and heard.

Please let your twelve year old kid watch this, not with a parent, but with friends, it'll help them grow through school, it did for me I adore the Breakfast Club, and have ever since I first saw the film. One of the best 80's film The breakfast Club was amazing! This movie teaches that you can't just judge somebody before you know who they really are, and why they act the way they do. Home Video The most recent home video release of The Breakfast Club movie is January 2, 2018. And yes, it seems clichéd and awfully familiar in the beginning, but the movie somehow progresses past that point and becomes its own thing in the progress.

You get the characters of The Breakfast Club—the popular 1985 teen-angst film, written and directed by John Hughes. We're marking the occasion differently: by digging into our archives and pulling out our original review. It's a story about communication gaps, teen isolation, and the angst that everyone regardless of how self-assured they seem experiences during the years that function as a transition from the freedom of adolescence to the responsibilities of adulthood. I identified with Claire Molly Ringwald's character because she's more innocent and naive than the others. They also have a new name to describe one another—friends.
Though the movie pretends to disparage peer pressure and social falsehood, the five detained strangers all succumb to peer pressure immediately by not ratting on a disruptive boy who abuses them and also breaks the rules. He isn't happy with the type of person he is because he is the person everyone wants him to be. And Bender's inflammatory disrespect goads the dean into a sanctimonious fury. But we think you're crazy to make us write this essay telling you who we think we are. The cussing, drug use, and discussion of virginity, suicide, and abuse is nothing high schoolers aren't aware of. A student describes contemplating suicide because of a low grade.

I could watch this movie again easily and not get bored by it really related to me when I watched it because I am a high school student and I see thing happening. The five characters definitely are regularly seen stereotypes, but that is also the point the movie tries to make, there is more to a person than just a label given to him or her by the others. Once it is smuggled back to the library, a few of the kids smoke joints. As the athlete who rounds out this predictable lineup, Emilio Estevez has an edgy physical intensity very reminiscent of his father, Martin Sheen.
The Breakfast Club is forced and clichéd at times, but this is an 80s classic that deserves its status and is one of the rare movies from that period that aged remarkably well.

The five young stars would have mixed well even without the fraudulent encounter-group candor towardS which ''The Breakfast Club'' forces them. If parents want to teach their children how to treat other get them a book by James Dobson. At one point he even pulls out a switchblade, but no injuries occur. I know that many people have it on there all time favourite list me no but I still enjoyed watching it.
The material is a little talky albeit not in a way that will cause anyone to confuse it with something by Eric Rohmer , but it's hard not to be drawn into the world of these characters. Girls that say no are not teases, we don't really know about what others lives are like unless we stop to listen, everyone has things they struggle with be it grades, parental pressure or abusive parents. The message of the movie is that, underneath our exteriors, we all have complex personalities. Some students rise to defend others who are being taunted. . Ally Sheedy, for instance, must do what she can with the part of an uncommunicative psycho who reveals herself to be a compulsive liar, then changes radically by the time the story is over.

The two adults in residence are the dean of students Paul Gleason , jailer and bully for a day, and the janitor John Kapelos , a pragmatist who knows too many of the institution's secrets to be a moralist. But now the camera no longer joins them;. Nelson fixes the library doors so they will remain closed, giving the students a little privacy. There's the arrogant, swaggering tough guy.
