From Amazon.co.uk

John Hughes's popular 1985 teen drama finds a diverse group of high school students--a jock (Emilio Estevez), a metalhead (Judd Nelson), a weirdo (Ally Sheedy), a princess (Molly Ringwald), and a nerd (Anthony Michael Hall)--sharing a Saturday in detention at their high school for one minor infraction or another. Over the course of a day, they talk through the social barriers that ordinarily keep them apart, and new alliances are born, though not without a lot of pain first. Hughes (Sixteen Candles), who wrote and directed, is heavy on dialogue but he also thoughtfully refreshes the look of the film every few minutes with different settings and original viewpoints on action. The movie deals with such fundamentals as the human tendency toward bias and hurting the weak, and because the characters are caught somewhere between childhood and adulthood, it's easy to get emotionally involved in hope for their redemption. Preteen and teenage kids love this film, incidentally. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club' 28 Feb 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Breakfast Club is one of the most touching films you will ever see. The only thing I find surprising is that more people don't seem to go crazy for it; after all, it captures perfectly that strange, confused person we all once used to be - a teenager.

Five students with nothing in common have to spend an entire Saturday in detention and write an essay on who they think they are. This mundane and seemingly pointless exercise unwittingly sets them on an emotional journey that they will never forget and that will change all of their lives forever. They only met once, but the Breakfast Club was probably the best thing that could ever have happened to these characters.

The most enduring lesson of this film is that not everyone is who they first appear to be. The confident Mr Verner is in fact very insecure, the 'stupid' janitor is much sharper than anyone will ever give him credit for. But the five students prove the stars of the show. Apart from Emilio Estevez, none of them became huge stars, but all deliver performances to die for. The 'Brain' is in fact a far more volatile and cut-loose person than he first seems, the 'Criminal' has a real heart, the 'Basket Case' is screaming inside for the world to treat her like a human being, but no one seems to listen, the 'Princess' is trapped in a role where she is what everyone but herself wants her to be, and the star wrestler and tough guy is in fact a scared little boy, desperate not to disappoint his father. The emotional journey will bring you right back to those days of high school, of being judged on who your friends were and the clothes you wore, when no one saw the real you.

5.0 out of 5 stars I would recommend this version! 30 Dec 2008
Format:DVD
I bought this dvd just because it was cheaper than the one disc version, and I was pleasantly surprised!
The bonus disc has a 12-part documentary that I'd never seen before with cast members (Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall, the care-taker)and film-makers discussing the film and its cultural resonance. They also discuss the Brat Pack label and it's impact on the actors' careers. There are different parts for each character and the music soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lipstick Trick 30 Oct 2007
By Tabitha
Format:DVD
Okay I admit it, I was an eighties kid, and this was a classic eighties movie. If you ever watch a programme about the eighties, this film is always mentioned or the Molly Ringwald dance scene is shown. Plus the fact many a girl spent hours learning how to do the lipstick trick after seeing the film (trust me - I speak from experience) but I won't spoil it by telling you. You'll have to watch it to see what I mean.

If you want to bring back memories of teen angst, and all that went with it. Or if you want a classic for your collection - You just got to get it

5.0 out of 5 stars A key film of the 80's... and all decades 21 Oct 2006
Format:DVD
Being an 80's kid I'll admit I'm slightly biased in saying this is one of the best films ever! This is a perfect film for most people who enjoy a film to have a storyline and to see the change that characters go through a film (not a typical cliché buddy movie though)

This film more than any other teen movie that I've seen, shows the divisions that an American high school may have (I'm from the UK so I'm guessing) in a heightened way, yet it remains a very serious moving picture... with comic effect thrown in for good measure.

The basic story is five high school students all have Saturday detention and must put up with each other, on their own for the day. From the first motif of the high school we get an idea of what these divisions maybe. And the rest of the film shows them talking to each other in a way they're probably not used to in their own niche of school life. The criminal stops insulting someone for 5 minutes and gets to know someone for themselves, rather than the clothes they wear... the jock gets to say what HE'S feeling and the nerd gets spoken to! although you could probably see the ending coming before you even put the dvd in the player, this is still a film you'll want to see till the end, simply to see how all the kids end up.

Although the "day" closes well we never find out if the day changed any of the children permanently, and that's almost the point of the film. firstly about how everyone under their clothes or musical taste are all people, but also how people can get forced into these stereotypes and no matter what they do they will forever be known as a jock, criminal, princess etc....

Format:DVD
The first time I saw this movie I was around 12 and even though it was 13 years ago I still remember it was aired on a Sunday (I guess that shows what a deep impact it had on me). Unfortunately I forgot the name of the movie (but never about the movie itsself!) and it was only last year when the release of the DVD was announced on Amazon.de (I have to tell you I'm 25 years old now, which means that I hadn't seen the movie for around 12 years!) and I was like "OMG those are the kids from this genious movie I saw so long ago!" And now I know the movie by heart, and Judd Nelson has become my most favorite actor (it's just a shame that this genious actor has wasted his talent on so many bad movies...).

Even though it's actually a teen movie it's not boring at all watching it as an adult. I think you simply see the movie in a different view when you watch it as an adult, but it does not loose a tiny bit of its brilliance.

Besides, I made my younger relatives who are teens now watch it and they loved it too, which shows that you don't have to be an 80s teen to love it, it's simply a timeless classic!

To give a short overview about the story, there's five teens who are in detention, they get introduced to you as the typical stereotypes you find in all schools now and then I guess: a princess (Molly Ringwald), a sporto (Emilio Estevez), a criminal (Judd Nelson), a brain (Anthony Michael Hall) and a weirdo (Ally Sheedy). They see each other and they immediatelly think they have nothing in common, and they are full of prejudices (so are you when you see them in the beginning of the movie), but they (and you, too) have to realize that they are not so different after all and you should never judge a book by its cover.
