When people think of John Hughes, the one film I think that they will immediately go to is The Breakfast Club.

Even more poignant is how at the start of the film John Bender is mocking Brian for having the perfect little family...Hughes' script shows us that kids from so called perfect families like Brian's can be pretty screwed up too...Hughes' also shows us that underneath the labels all the teens in the movie have much more in common than a mere label would suggest.

Molly Ringwald is the spoilt rich kid who turns out to have a heart, Anthony Michael Hall is the geeky kid who wants to fit in, Emilo Estevez plays the jock whose a friendly guy but wants to choose a different course of life, Judd Nelson is the rebel who bullies people yet his life is as bad and complicated as the others and then there is Ally Sheedy who is the goth kid who has no direction in life and has no one to turn to.
