Never Before Scene From The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club is one of the best teenage movies ever...a group of unlikely friends...five high school students from different walks of life...forced to endure a Saturday detention under a power-hungry principal, and in the process...get to know themesleves.

"Saturday, March 24,1984. Shermer High School, Shermer, Illinois, 60062. Dear Mr. Vernon, We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did "was" wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That's the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed."

and it's really great to the behind the scenes photos of the shooting of the film.

"You ought to spend a little more time trying to make something of yourself and a little less time trying to impress people."—Vernon

I remember when the movie came out, being a teenager myself, I took my mother to the theater to see this so she would "understand" what it's like to be a teenager in the today's world...I was so "method."

                                        "When you grow up, your heart dies."—Allison

Coincidentally, I got to spend the holidays this year with two of my nephews, both 16, who both watched the movie for the first time recently....and BOTH thought the movie was EXCELLENT.  They loved it...and felt it was contemporary.

"Like, when I step outside myself kinda, and when I, when I look in at myself, you know? And I see me and I don't like what I see, I really don't."—Brian

I can't think of a better gift.

"You know what I got for Christmas this year? It was a banner fuckin' year at the old Bender family. I got a carton of cigarettes. The old man grabbed me and said "Hey. Smoke up Johnny."
