(From Wikipedia)

"The Breakfast Club is a 1985 American teen film written and directed by John Hughes. The storyline follows five teenagers (each representing a different clique in high school) as they spend a Saturday in detention together and come to realize that they are all deeper than their respective stereotypes. The film has become a cult classic and has had a tremendous influence on many coming-of-age films since then."

I bought this video on VHS from a charity shop a few weeks ago and I enjoyed it. What are your thoughts on the film?

I saw it like, a few months ago, and I thought it wasn't bad, though I'm not ~crazy about it.

my jaw literally just dropped. not that crazy about it?! that is one of the best movies in EXISTENCE!!!! I fugging LOVE The Breakfast Club. the whole movie just resonates so well. and everyone did a fantstic job in it. The scenes where Bender imitates his Dad(No dad, what about you? FUCK YOU!), Brian talks about why he's there (Do you know why I'm here? DO YOU?!), when Andy talks about his dad(All because of me and my old man), when Vernon confronts Bender in the closet, when Vernon and the janitor talk about how the kids hate Vernon, it just ALL was done so fantastically. I just don't understand how anyone can be so blase about The Breakfast Club...

I heard that they are making a remake of it, called 'Bumped".

"The Breakfast Club" Remake

Veteran producer Bridget Johnson will take on "Bumped," a modern-day version of "The Breakfast Club," with McG protege Anna Mastro attached to direct from a script by Lizzy Weiss.

"Bumped" is a comedy-drama revolving around five twentysomethings -- including a corporate go-getter, a musician and a flirt -- who normally wouldn't be friends but who get to know one another when they're bumped from a flight and wind up stranded at Chicago's O'Hare Airport.

The project marks the directorial debut for Mastro, who worked closely with director/producer McG on his "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" and was an associate producer on his "Stay Alive."

Mastro also has developed and produced the CW's "Pussycat Dolls" series and, like McG, shot music videos.

The film will be financed independently and later set up at a studio; it likely won't shoot until the SAG strike situation is resolved.

John Hughes' 1985 film "The Breakfast Club" (with which "Bumped" has no formal association) was a generation-defining comedy that helped build the careers of actors like Emilio Estevez.

I wonder what that'll be like.
