The Breakfast Club turns 25
Pop Candy reports the John Hughes classic “The Breakfast Club” turns 25 today. The blog Stuck in the 80s recaps the 25 best moments in the film. While “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” also written and directed by Hughes, is probably the better film, both it and “The Breakfast Club” stuck with me a lot as a teenager.
I recently watched the documentary “Don’t You Forget About Me” as filmmakers tried to track down John Hughes for an interview prior to his death. What stuck with me most about the documentary were the number of teenagers that said John Hughes’ films still appealed to them and reflected their thoughts and concerns. Pretty impressive for a movie made before today’s teenagers were even born.
Hughes fans should also check out Vanity Fair for new articles about Hughes, including interviews with Matthew Broderick and Molly Ringwald.
