Synopsis


The Breakfast Club
John Hughes wrote and directed this quintessential 1980s high school drama featuring the hottest young stars of the decade. Trapped in a day-long Saturday detention in a prison-like school library are Claire, the princess (Molly Ringwald); Andrew, the jock (Emilio Estevez); John, the criminal (Judd Nelson); Brian, the brain (Anthony Michael Hall); and Allison, the basket case (Ally Sheedy). These five strangers begin the day with nothing in common, each bound to his/her place in the high school caste system. Yet the students bond together when faced with the villainous principal (Paul Gleason), and they realize that they have more in common than they may think, including a contempt for adult society. "When you grow up, your heart dies," Allison proclaims in one of the film's many scenes of soul-searching, and, judging from the adults depicted in the film, the teen audience may very well agree. Released in a decade overflowing with derivative teen films, The Breakfast Club has developed an almost cult-like status. ~ Dylan Wilcox, Rovi

    Movie and bluray work great.....took movie home , opened it , no instructions on how to download the three free songs...so I called store, no one could help me...I called customer service...after going three three non English speaking representatives, I finally was told (had to ask three times to repeat) that instructions would be emailed to me...I updated my email account...made the rep spell it out so I knew it wax right and waited the forty eight hour period.. No email.....so I emailed customer service , finally got some help, after I had to explain in layman's terms twice what the issue was...representative told me to insert Blu-ray Disc into my computer and I should get the music....maybe I'm wrong but I don't know of any laptop that reads blurays yet(?)... So I went to login to post on here...,and lo and behold found out that my email address hasn't been updated since I was told that particular address wasn't associated with me account,,,,I'm very annoyed with this...how hard is it to help someone and understand instructions? Sorry for my rant but is there anyone on here who purchased this DVD and was able to download the music and help me do so myself.....

    I love all things 80s, especially John Hughes flicks from the era. And 1985 was a particulary good year for film because it brought us a timeless gem that nearly anyone could relate to even viewing it for the very first time in this day and age. This wasn't the case for me, as I've been a long time fan. (Saw and remembered it when I was 5 seeing as I was born the same year it released.) But this hands down is the greatest it's ever looked. I was a little weary because I already owned the 25th Anniv dvd edition, and this doesn't have any new supplements... But the picture quality! Definitely worth the upgrade if you love the film and want to experience it in the best quality possible. For the brain, athlete, basket case, princess and criminal in all of us.

    I first saw this film back in the early 80s. I wasn't much older than the characters portrayed. The film and story had a huge impact on me. I have always found it easy to feel unique, like I am always going through things no one else would understand. This film made me see how similar and interconnected we all are. I saw pieces of myself in every character and their stories. It's a great film that I enjoy watching again and again. For the most part, except for the costuming, everything about this film holds up today.

    Why do people love the The Breakfast Club? It's simple. If you have ever been to high school, you have known these characters. Or maybe even been one of them. The fact that it's masterfully directed and tightly written helps too. If you have went through high school, or are going through it, this is a movie you will connect to more than most films of its kind. Make no mistake, this is not your modern day teen garbage. This is almost darkly realistic portrayal of high school life. Not as dark as Heathers by any means though. But very true to the experience. You will laugh, cry and maybe even see yourself in this movie.

    Set during a Saturday at a California high school, this movie shows the all-too-real social interactions and struggles of a group of teens who are thrust together during a mandatory detention for and entire day. They all eventually tell their individual stories, their reasons for being in detention, and end up realizing they're not so different after all. John Hughes scored big with this one.

    Any fan of anything 80's will want to own this movie. Truly a classic I don't have time to explain plot or AV specifics, just trust me, the movie came out in 1985 & the restoration looks crisp, sharp & amazing! Make sure you buy this version of the movie for the restoration, but if you own the 25th anniversary version it's not too much of an upgrade. My only complaint is that they could have made a couple new featurettes or maybe a new Commentary for the 30th anniversary.

    A definitive 80s teen movie

    One of the more perceptive movies about high school in the 80s looks good on Blu-ray and is still a lot of fun. Doesn't seem nearly as dated as some other teen comedies of the time, and was really unique at the time: just a bunch of high school kids talk about themselves over the course of one day. I connected with it strongly when I was in high school in the 80s, and it still resonates for me.

    The first time I saw this movie was on a first date. It made me cry. It still does all these years later. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t feel a bit emotionally connected to this movie. You can see yourself in at least one of the characters I bet. Thank you Best Buy for having this Blu-ray available for fans like me who grew up with this.
