Synopsis: Five high school students from different cliques are sentenced to detention on a Saturday. With a disgruntled principle breathing down their necks the group comes together to learn that no matter who you are, being a teenager isn't easy.

Fact: The above quote was ad libbed by Judd Nelson.

Trivia: The woman who plays Brian's mother and the little girl who plays his sister are in fact Anthony Michael Hall's real mother and sister.

Movie Mistake: Claire put's on her lipstick once but put's it back in her purse twice.

My Take: Everyone has a quintessential film or song that describes and defines them and their generation. The Breakfast Club is mine with no close second. I still get lost in memories when the timeless soundtrack is played on the radio. This film is an absolute must for those who are in high school or have ever went.
