life saver

This movie describes five teenage caricatures and how they deal with their problems. The movie deals with how different people react to authority, who leads, who comes up with a plan and who curls and in a corner. This movie has helped me grow up and understand myself better as a comulation of a couple of the caricatures.

"We're Not Alone"

What happens when you put 5 high school stereotypes together? You get The Breakfast Club. Directed by John Hughes this film follows 5 teenagers who have to serve a Saturday detention and write a report about "who they are''. We discover the 5 personalities "The Jock - Andrew", "The Criminal - Bender", "The Princess - Claire", "The Nerd - Brian" and "The Basket Case - Allison". The characters are set up as stereotypes in the beginning but as the film progresses we see ''they're are not so different after all".

The film while slower in pace doesn't drag and kept my attention for the run time. The comedy from Bender, the awkwardness of Brian, The tough guy attitude of Andrew ,the snobbery of Claire and the weirdness of Allison keeps the film entertaining. The personalities of the 5 work well together and this allows for some great scenes.

Their are also two other players in this story,Vernon and Carl. Vernon is the authoritarian figure and Carl is the laid back janitor. These two represents the different perspectives of the previous generation. Vernon is pessimistic and aggressive towards the current generation while Carl is more optimistic and empathetic towards the current generation. This conveys the theme of the generational gap and this allows for the audience to see different perspectives. Vernon and Carl are less developed than the 5 main characters and as such are more one dimensional. This is one of the few criticisms of the film aside from some questionable 80s dance scenes (although they are fun as hell).

The most beautiful thing about this film is the theme of similarity and difference. This is conveyed in the group therapy scene where each of them reveal secrets about themselves. This shows the audience that each of the 5 characters problems are different but they're all going through a similar struggle. The struggle of being accepted by parents, peers, teachers and society at large. This is something that a lot of people can relate to including myself. I tend to identify with Brian's character the most.

Give this film a try, you just might discover that "we're not so different after all"

Still Relevant Today!

Honestly went to watch this movie and expected something that wasn't going to live up to the hype, or was just going to be another dull teenage flick. I was pleasantly surprised when it wasn't, it's an actual good movie that lives up to all the hype that was given to it, and for an older movie, it's even better because it's still relevant in today's society (maybe more so than ever).

The film takes place all in one school where five teenagers have been put in detention on a Saturday for their own reasons, which will be revealed as the film continues (some reasons more sad than others). Even with this limited space, most of it being in the library, the film does not dull. It uses everything around them to the best of their advantage and having such big personalities in the movie helped keep the movie interesting! Some moments are kind of played out a few too many times, like the fights between Claire and John (note 9/10 and not 10/10)

Overall loved the atmosphere of the movie and the actors in it were brilliant in their respective rolls. Brilliant writing and put together in such a way that it will be relevant for many years to come!!
