Exclusive Video: Our tribute to The 30th Anniversary of The Breakfast Club

03.11.2015

It's hard to imagine my childhood without THE BREAKFAST CLUB, as it was one of those defining films that stuck with you long after it was over and drew you back again and again to experience the various characters and all their complexities. A brain (Anthony Michael Hall), an athlete (Emilio Estevez), a basket case (Ally Sheedy), a princess (Molly Ringwald), and a criminal (Judd Nelson) all met for detention on a Saturday afternoon and everything was changed forever. Director John Hughes left an indelible mark on cinema with the film, which has stood the test of time, providing an insightful, funny, and often moving look at the people we are and the people we pretend to be at the turning point into adulthood. There's much to dissect in the film, but you can also simply enjoy the camaraderie that develops when you put strangers from different social circles into the same pot just as well. With that, we present our 30th Anniversary Tribute to the film, featuring a look at the history and anecdotes from the set of one of the most affecting teen flicks ever made.

"Not. Even. Close. Bud."

If you don't already own it, click HERE to get the 30th Anniversary remastered version of THE BREAKFAST CLUB. Or, if you're feeling up to it and it's in your area, you can check out the film in theaters later this month.

imo, its overrated..

I'll probably get shit on for this because I know im the very small minority, but I think this film is so overrated. Im 26, it has never stuck with me the 2 times ive watched it.. felt it was kind of bland and the majority of the characters were uninteresting to me. Ive watched countless "being a teenager" type films in my lifetime, and I wouldnt put this film on any pedestal. The only people that I know that truly fuckin love this movie, I have found, are those who were teens/young adults at

Whatever. lol

Wow, it's been 30 years already? I agree with Wopolopolus - this movie really stands the test of time. And this is probably the best movie about being a teenager.

Honestly, for my money, it was probably the greatest of the great 80's movies. It withstood the test of time with messages just as relevant today as 30 years ago. God fuck it has been 30 years. I feel so old. But every time I watch this movie more than any other, I'm taken back to my teen years, I'm back to their lives and my own in school. Often movies are labeled as timeless, some deserving some not, this without a doubt falls into the deserving category. It was Hughes masterpiece which is

It was Hughes masterpiece which is saying a lot given how many classics he made for us. Words cannot express enough praise for this film.
