Paper On Breakfast Club

562 words - 3 pages

The Breakfast Club 1 Over the weekend, I watched The Breakfast Club directed by Oliver Stone. It had a great cast, which included famous actors such as Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall, and Alley Sheedy. Each actor and actress had his or her own personality in this movie. Because of this great cast and the role each one played, I found this movie to be sensational. From what I was told about this movie from friends that have seen it before, the high school that the movie was filmed at really existed in the 1980's. There were thousands of students that attended that school. Much of what the movie was based on dealt with the lives of five different students that attended.

There are five students serving detention in the school library on a Saturday morning. Each student represents a particular stereotype or is labeled for what kind of students they are. They 2 are classified as follows: a princess, a criminal, an athlete, a basket case, and a genius. At the beginning of the movie, they all can not stand to be in the same room with one another. They begin to get on each other's nerves and make fun of one another. However, as the plot thickens, it becomes very funny and I was able to find out a little bit of background on each one of his or her lives. I found that The Breakfast Club was geared mainly toward male and female teen-agers and what their lifestyles are like in high school. A primary example of this is the characters themselves. There are two girls and three guys who attend the same high school. Most individuals that attend high school are in their early teenage years and continue until their late teens. High school is a very difficult time for teens. It is a time where you develop into an adult and start to form your identity. After watching this movie, I felt a variety of different things. It was funny at times, and then serious at others. But most of all, it contained a lot of factual information about the high school experience. It made me remember how I sometimes felt in high school. Every school has students that are sometimes labeled as nerds, and jocks, and other names. Because of the subject matter of this movie, I found it very easy to relate to. I would recommend The Breakfast Club to anyone who wants a good laugh and wants to take a stroll down memory lane.
