It's the weekend, and five students have weekend detention. There's a jock, a princess, a misfit, a nerd, and a lout. Not much in common, except for having to give up their day, sit in the school library, and write an essay for the principal. Being from such widely different backgrounds and having such completely different personalities, it's inevitable that some frictions and shenanigans develop. Especially when the principal leaves the room...

Synopsis

When five high school students from different social groups are forced to spend a Saturday together in detention, they find themselves interacting with and understanding each other for the first time. A jock (Emilio Estevez), a criminal (Judd Nelson), a princess (Molly Ringwald), a basket case (Ally Sheedy), and a brain (Anthony Michael Hall) talk about everything from parental tension to sex to peer pressure to hurtful stereotypes while serving time. Ultimately, the five find that they may have more in common than they ever imagined and learn more about themselves as well as each other. The only question is, Will they remember what theyve learned after they leave detention? Director and writer John Hughes, along with the stellar Brat Pack, cast makes this a memorable, moving film filled with believable dialogue, intelligent humor, and a sufficient dose of high school hijinx.

My kids grew up with The Breakfast Club. Watched it every Summer (on video). My 4 kids know the script off my heart.
I bought the new copy for my 15 year old grandson, who now says it's his favourite movie. Teenage angst is remains teenage angst.
It's a great movie!

This is a great, classic 80's movie. It's a comming of age movie and shows how we stereotype others so quickly and assume all too much.

It's very funny and the first half is basically a laugh a minute, then it gets into it's moral fibre a bit more.

There is some drug taking in the movie, so don't show it to anyone too young.

This is a great 80's movie. I am a child of the 90s but i still appreciate this movie and found it moving. It is a timeless movie which can apply to anyone's life. It's about 5 high school students who have nothing in common except they are in detention together for a whole satuday. They get on each other's nerves but as the day goes on they form strong friendships. It is enjoyable to watch and is funny at times and it makes you think.

A genuine 80s classic! How can you go past a movie where the character smoke a doobie, and then break into a dancing montage?! I think this film is perfect for a laugh over a few wines with friends - brilliant in so many ways! I have to also point out 'Not Another Teen Movies' great parody of this movie - wonderful!

This movie was panned by a bunch of critics. That is, ADULT critics.
Conversely, they were perhaps inadvertently panning themselves, because in a supreme bit of irony, they failed to understand why teens at the time responded so deeply to this movie. The very themes that the 5 kids dealt with in the movie and the lack of empathy on the critics' part underscored the gap between them and the Gen X'ers. For those of us who grew up at that time, the feelings of displacement and dysfunctional parental pressures were very, very real. All of the then-young actors do a splendid job of putting us in their situations. And not only do we feel for them, we remember. This is one of the few, rare movies of the 1980s that makes teens into real people with real dilemmas.
