The Breakfast Club is a 1985 comedy-drama directed the late John Hughes.

It starred Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy.

The movie tells the story of five different teenagers who go to the same school, but are in completely different social groups. They end up getting detention and are stuck at the school on a Saturday for eight hours the not-so-nice assistant principal, played by the late Paul Gleason.

I absolutely love this movie. It is one of my favorites of all time.

The story has some good comedy in it and absolutely has a good ending.

I think it shows a little of what high school is actually like, depending on how many people go to the school.

The school in the movie  had a lot of students. I think that might be why the characters didn’t really associate with each other in the beginning.

The movie premiered in Los Angeles on Feb. 7, 1985.

“The way the characters were portrayed was as if they were really living those lives. As they expressed their feelings in the movie, it felt so real. It felt like I could relate to them.

Throughout the movie, as they are talking to each other and telling each other how they feel, we can see what they have been through.

The teens realize that they share some situations, but they realize that they are all completely different and probably will never speak to each other again after that one day of detention.

This movie is a good one to watch, even though it may have some inappropriate things or may be not so family friendly.

I think that The Breakfast Club is a funny movie and some people can relate to lives of the the teenagers in the film.
