What has become of The Breakfast Club, now that we're halfway through lunch, and already thinking about dinner?
Written and directed by John Hughes, this 1985 movie remains one of the defining pop culture artefacts of its era.
—would in any way not get up wedgied, swirlied, and stuffed inside lockers was unimaginable.
The idea of it ever being “cool,” let alone the defining component of all-around popular culture, could only have been described as insane. John Hughes himself explained Anthony Michael Hall’s brilliance thusly: “Every single kid who came in to read for the part did the whole, stereotyped high school nerd thing.
Samantha is a recognizably human heroine adrift in the movie’s farce of wacky schemes and zany slapstick.
She and several other members of the original Facts of Life cast were let go when the show was reworked by the network.
She made her motion picture debut in the independent film Tempest (1982), which earned her a Golden Globe nomination.
After my fourth beer, I might even add Rebel Without a Cause.
Consider this: just last year, Entertainment Weekly listed The Breakfast Club as the best high school movie ever made, stating: "If hell is other people - and high school is hell - then John Hughes is the genre's Sartre, and this is his No Exit." The plot?
