School detention on a Saturday morning can be a drag. Students are forced to spend their time at school when they would rather be at home asleep or doing anything else.

Five high school students are serving detention while stuck with unfair assistant principal Richard Vernon. The students include rebel John, princess Claire, outcast Allison, brainy Brian and jock Andrew. They call themselves The Breakfast Club.

The Breakfast Club is still a good movie to watch even though it was released 32 years ago. Although these teenagers are now probably in their late 40s this movie still makes one laugh. Their experience of being in a room with people they don’t like is so relatable. The Breakfast Club isn’t just about students doing time in detention, it’s about how students from different paths can become friends.

The director had a modest $1 million budget and shot in a single location. He wanted the actors to be young high school students. The filming took place in the library in Maine North High School but it was too small to film inside so the crew built the set in the school gymnasium. This movie has it’s own feature song name “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” by Simple Minds that opens and close the movie.

The Criterion Collection recently announced the release of a special edition in January. This movie may be over 30 years old but it is a good classic to watch with family and friends.
