Have just watched The Breakfast Club. I had remembered it as a real feel good teen film but it has made me cry. Judd Nelson's character is so so sad. It's so different looking at it from the perspective of a parent!

I knew they all had some back story but his is just so awful. When he shows them the cigar burn I wanted to give him a big cuddle.

So many films from our childhood are like that. I only watched "sound of music" again a few weeks ago, and only now as an adult do I understand the whole Nazi perspective.

God I love the Breakfast Club! Watched it years ago while pissed merry and loved the rebellion. Watched it later while in a sombre mood and was touched by the troubles of the kids. Watched it in a nostaglic mood and just enjoyed the story and the laughs. Love that it can get you in different places at different times, y'know?

haven't seen that film for ages, saw it when it came out at the pictures, ah those were great times smile

Oh I love that film, first watched it aged 17 while skipping college with a mate and drinking cider. <Happy sigh>

Don't think I've watched it since becoming a parent though.

Judd Nelson. Ah, the nostrils! I did love him...

mrmump Fri 23-Oct-09 20:24:31

I loved the ending when they catogorised themselves. And when Molly Ringwold gave that other girl that awful makeover! She looked so much better before hand!

i fancied judd too, he had those dangerous gloves grin, ha his nostrils were a bit like a dragon

mrmump Fri 23-Oct-09 20:27:32

Dragon? He reminded me of Touche Turtle.

Ally Sheedy. That was the other girl. She and Judd Nelson were living together and engaged in St Elmos Fire.

Oh, Pretty in Pink. Molly Ringwold (sp?) in that dress turning the title all ironic.
