The Breakfast Club (1985) – A Hall Of Fame Quick Capsule Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Its taken me over 30 years but I finally watched The Breakfast Club. And i wasn’t disappointed. It’s odd how certain films skip you by but despite rating similar themed coming of age film Ferris Bueller as one of my favourite films fo all time, I just never got around to The Breakfast Club. The danger is out of time these films can loose their impact but The Breakfast Club doesn’t. Far from it, I could relate to the film and the characters and it maintains a mostly timeless quality. Age hasn’t taken away the impact of these disparate characters and their journey through one morning of detention. Superbly performed, expertly directed and endlessly charming – a classic for sure and a worth entry into the Phil’s Quick Review hall of fame!
Best Bit: Actually watching it after all these years!
