The ages of everyone in the principle cast at the time of filming are: Judd Nelson ( 25 years old ), Molly Ringwald (16 years old; her 17th birthday was only three days after the film’s release), Emilio Estevez (23 years old), Anthony Michael Hall (16 years old) and Ally Sheedy (23 years old).
About 25 uses each of the f – and s- words . “A–hole” and “b–ch” are used six or seven times each. “H—,” “a–” and “p—” are all used as well. About 10 references to the male anatomy include “balls,” “pr–k” and “d–k.” “ F -ggot” is lobbed into the mix once.
Poignant, funny and thoroughly relatable, the screenplay presents a touching tale of teen angst which doesn’t seek to patronise or trivialise the teenager’s experiences and still resonates, even if you’ve long left your school days behind. There are great lines dotted throughout the movie: ‘We’re all pretty bizarre.
He pauses to hide his face in his sleeve before revealing that he received detention because a flare gun went off in his locker because he was going to attempt suicide with it after failing his shop project. Claire later manipulates Brian into writing the paper for all of them.
Claire Standish is in detention for skipping school to go shopping. And finally, John Bender is in detention for pulling a fire alarm and fighting with the school’s teachers and students.
Andrew was in detention with the other four on Saturday. The crime he committed to get in detention was from the pressure of his Dad. He was getting changed after wrestling one day, taping up his knee and saw Larry Lester, a weak kid. He taped Larry Lester’s butt together with the tape he was using for his knee.
Due to the mature content, The Breakfast Club is best for mature teens. I give The Breakfast Club 4 out of 5 stars, and recommend it to mature teens 14 and up.
My Suggested MPAA Rating : R for language, smoking, and brief violence~all involving preteens and teenagers. Violence-3/5- A dead body is shown for a few seconds with a little blood on its face (but not horribly graphic) which can disturb some people.
‘The Breakfast Club ‘ And ‘Pretty In Pink’ Are Landing On Netflix This Week. Yep, volumise your hair and don your best acid wash denim, because The Breakfast Club (1985) and Pretty In Pink (1986) hit the streaming service on Friday 10th April.
Claire , along with the rest of the group covered for Bender when he stole the screw, asking Vernon why anybody would want to steal a screw and also when Vernon stormed in asking what the ruckus was, while John Bender hid under Claire’s desk and wedged his head between Claire’s legs.
“When you grow up, your heart dies.” Allison Reynolds (Ally Sheedy) in The Breakfast Club . The Breakfast Club captured the teen angst of a generation, delving into themes such as stereotyping, the stigma of mental illness and bullying.
The Breakfast Club was a great movie from the 80’s loaded with themes that are still relevant today. This movie has stood the test of time by touching on several universal themes. Even 30+ years later, people of all ages can relate to what these kids are going through.
NEO-MAXI-ZOOM-DWEEBIE “Face it,” Bender says to Brian . “You’re a neo-maxi-zoom-dweebie.” The term was apparently ad-libbed by Judd Nelson.
Even aside from the fact that Bender very explicitly harasses and antagonizes Claire for the entire movie, making the scene where they finally make out seem mildly toxic at best, neither of their character arcs seem to build toward a relationship in any way. I don’t Claire ever interacted with Bender again.
