The Breakfast Club

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. The DVD release includes production notes, cast and crew bios, widescreen presentation, Dolby sound, closed captioning, optional French and Spanish soundtracks, and optional Spanish subtitles. --Tom Keogh

Weird Science

Yes, that is Bill Paxton as Ilan Mitchell-Smith's militaristic big brother. And that's Robert Downey Jr. as one of the in-crowd jerks who makes nerds Mitchell-Smith and Hall's lives miserable. Fortunately, this is a John Hughes comedy and our smart nerds create the perfect woman, Lisa (Kelly LeBrock), using a computer and voodoo. Lisa is a willing sex toy, has magical powers, and just wants to help the boys get even and meet nice babes. She even cleans up. The fantasy ebullience of Hughes is given full rein here and that's good and bad (mostly good). It's all aimed at a certain kind of hormone-addled, 16-year-old sensibility; but who doesn't have a little bit of that in them? --Keith Simanton

Sixteen Candles

Molly Ringwald established herself as the teen queen of the '80s in this fresh comedy. The movie is a day in the life of Samantha, whose 16th birthday is turning out to be anything but sweet. All the traumas of teendom come down on one long day, which sees Samantha surrounded by dithery relatives, mooning over a high school hunk, and pursued by a sawed-off Lothario. Sixteen Candles marked the directing debut of John Hughes, and its goofy energy displayed a promising talent with a great ear for high school lingo ... a promise neglected since Hughes became, after Home Alone, a one-man entertainment industry. There are some pretty crass moments (Why the stereotype of the foreign-exchange student from Asia?), but Ringwald's steady appeal smoothes over the rough spots. As the pubescent, self-styled lady-killer, Anthony Michael Hall turns in a hilarious portrait of a young swinger; he and Ringwald would reteam with Hughes for The Breakfast Club, another key teen picture of the decade. --Robert Horton

Product Description

Three John Hughes teen comedies from the 1980s. In 'The Breakfast Club' (1984), five mismatched teenagers are stuck with each other for the day when they are forced to spend Saturday at school on detention. Gradually, though, unlikely friendships form. John Hughes' seminal high school comedy set the template for a number of 1980s teen movies, while Simple Minds scored a huge hit with their theme song, 'Don't You Forget About Me'. In 'Weird Science' (1985), a couple of nerdy schoolboys hook a Barbie doll to their computer and scan in magazine pictures of perfect parts of the female anatomy as part of an experiment. The result is the woman of their dreams - Lisa (Kelly Le Brock), a curvaceous and house proud beauty - whose mission it is to help them get the girls. They soon find themselves the most popular boys at school after Lisa manages to loosen them up a bit. Finally, in 'Sixteen Candles' (1984), Samantha Baker (Molly Ringwald) is approaching her sixteenth birthday, but sees little to celebrate about: her family have, in any case, forgotten her big day, and she is suffering from a severe bout of unrequited love. Worse still, the object of her affections is being courted by the school's most desirable student - can Samantha trust her quarry to value brains over beauty?

5.0 out of 5 stars really good collection 7 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
This collection is brilliant - its contains 3 films and extra's and is very cheap,its brilliant value for money. Firstly the collection is well-put together - the three films are all John Hughes classics and fit perfect together. The extra's are also really good and gives new John Hughes film fans like me and old fans a real insight into John Hughes and his films. What i really love about this collection is the packaging - its well very packaged. The design is appropriate to the films,its quirky,colorful,thoughtful and there little messages making the packaging design like a yearbook which is a very good idea. I'm very impressed with the packaging as i am with the films. They are classic John Hughes film of the 80's teen genre/"brat-pack" films. They all contain good stories,cast and have mix of fun and all kinds of emotions. Weird science is crazy but really sweet and funny. Sixteen candles is very sweet and the character of Sam is very believable and easy to relate to. The end is lovely and the geeks and the Chinese dude are great. Finally the breakfast club - my fave John Hughes film. Great story and characters. The characters are easy to relate to and their emotions are captured brilliantly. Its a simple film yet really delivers all types of emotions and has a great message. Teenagers are presented well in the film and real heart is put into it. The actor's are good especially Judd Nelson who plays John Bender - he acts very well and pulls out a good performance. John Bender is my fave character - he's a bit messed up and plays up a lot but he's a fun character and provides a lot of the laughs. Overall a brilliant collection - its a well packaged and thought out collection. For new fans of John Hughes films like me its a good collection to get into his classic films and at a good price too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three Classics 19 Jan 2011
Format:DVD
These just have to be in the collection of any John Hughes or 80s movie fan. These films spoke for a whole generation of teenagers and were the forerunners of all teen movies. Real stories, real characters, fantastic music. Rediscover your youth - and if you are young now - see what all the fuss was about. These films still hold up well today, in particular The Breakfast Club, as the characters and problems presented in the film are as relevant today as they were then. Great value for three films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab Nostalgia! 11 Jun 2009
By Jo Jo
Format:DVD
I grew up watching these films and had a similar box-set of my own, but have recently bought this one for my 18 year-old niece, who was constantly borrowing mine! I don't think these films date at all - they are classic 80's films and anyone who was a teenager in that era will know and love them. The younger generation seem to love them too!
