Then came the final half hour and the pieces magically fall into place because we learn that these people who we think are SO DIFFERENT are really struggling with many of the same issues--abuse, pressure put on by parents, etc. and these revelations are like a wall coming down as they themselves realize that they are not so different. I also appreciated that John Hughes sort of left the "What Happens on Monday" question hang in the air (at least in the movie), do they go back to their cliques as though nothing has happened or do they become friends bending the rules of the grand high school hierarchy?
The great thing about John Hughes films is that he almost always leaves something to the viewer's imagination. I don't think that one has to necessarily like the characters in this movie, for example Bender comes across as a jerk, but even in the jerk, there is something deeper that one can identify with. I even found myself to an extent identifying with Principal Vernon, even if I didn't agree with his tactics.
I found 1/3 of the film to be a powerful film about how our perceptions of people may bind us to believe certain stereotypes, but it also provided some hope that we can move beyond our stereotypes, even if its' unclear whether these will survive the pressures of the real world.
It contains interviews with the original actors.
"The Breakfast Club" is not only a great character study but also an important film for any generation. It packs an emotional wallop with every character revelation. By the film's finale, you sincerely believe each character's growth and it leaves you with the hope that people from different walks of life can ultimately understand each other and accept each other and in the end truly be a "club" of friends.
