There is a charm and wit about this movie that save it from being a terrible movie. It is dialogue heavy, and there is not a lot going on in the story. Put simply, this is a movie about five very different kids trying to get through a Saturday of detention together. The great writing by John Hughes makes this one of the most memorable films from the 80s. The characters can be classified into standard stereotypical high school kid clichés, but there is depth added to them through their conversations. The actors all do great jobs of portraying all their character's nuances. The story is so simple, and yet it is entertaining and satisfying. Hughes is able to dissect the teenage psyche tactfully enough to make a deeper and more meaningful movie about high school. Any viewer of this movie will be able to relate to one aspect of at least one character to their high school selves. This film has some good laughs, and some great drama. The balancing act between the two is done so well that it makes it feel very natural and free flowing. Even 33 years later, this movie remains relevant and relatable to teenage audiences. The moral that people of all different backgrounds can be friends and coincide with one another is a never-dying moral, and "The Breakfast Club" teaches it well. This is a great movie and is definitely worth seeing more than once. Overall, I give this film a 9/10.
