The Breakfast ClubBy a customer from Bristol, England , 18 Jan 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I watched this years ago when I was younger and fell in love with it.
It is a brillant teen film that we can all relate to in some sort of way.
Judd Nelson is really sexy in this.
Is funny places and thoughtful in other parts.
Eighties film all the way...

Why has it cult status ????By bchrisex (8 reviews) , 24 Nov 2013Quite an interesting film , but I don't think it merits its cult status. Plus thought end didn't fit in and was a bit clichéd / cheesy . Glad I've seen it but wouldn't feel life deprived if I never saw it again ....
Disappointing, won't be watching againBy Nammers (3 reviews) from York , 12 Oct 2013Knowing this is supposed to be a 'must see' cult classic' I've always wanted to watch it but only just got round to it. I have to say I was extremely disappointed. I have seen other 80's 'Brat Pack' movies and loved them, but this wasn't nearly as good. I have no idea why it has such a cult status! It also doesn't help that most the actors look far too old to be in high school!
Don'y you...even think about this...By a customer , 18 Sep 2013Rebellion...humour...navel gazing...more rebellion...a bit of humour...more navel gazing. Add to that a Bleu Ray print - I feel - that looks like poor Dvd, and you have the imperfect formula.
Why is this film a cult classic?By a customer , 02 Jul 2013I didn't get this film at all. I've seen it before, several years ago, but I thought that at 16 it would be more accessible for me now. I was wrong. There is absolutely no plot to speak of and the little that does occur doesn't make any sense. In essence, the characters shout, insult and offend each other and then there's a vaugely entertaining yet totally nonsensical dance montage, and then they continue misunderstanding and upsetting each other. Then a couple of them kiss for no reason. The end. As a 16 year old girl I usually love cliched teen comedies, and I'm normally not concerned with a poor storyline if I'm able to engage with the characters and their relationships, but I just couldn't. Their problems weren't explored anywhere near enough to make them worthwhile, and so in turn their interaction with each other was boring with zero chemistry between any of them. I watched this at my mum's recommendation and so the only explanation I can come up with for our vast difference in opinions of it is the separation of the generations. Maybe my contextual understanding affects my enjoyment? I doubt it though - I just don't think it was a very good film.
The Fresh Breakfast ReviewBy a customer , 30 May 2013When I heard the song by Simple Minds (Don't You Forget About Me) and the amount of refrences in other films about this film and with everyone saying it was one of the best films ever made, I thought would it be my kind of film and it was more than that. This film was amazing the whole cast was incrediable I just loved this movie so much I am glad I rented it. Overall I think this film is one of the must have films to watch if you like Sixteen Candles or Comedys than this is the film for you have to see it.
