Overview

The Breakfast Club is presented in 1.85:1 non-anamorphic widescreen. It's a real shame that Universal decided not to produce a sharper-looking transfer of the film. As it stands, this image sports fairly solid black levels and sharp colors to make for a nice-looking image. Besides a small amount of dirt in the image, this is a decent print that should have looked much better. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono in Spanish, English, and French. This is a very unimpressive sound mix that sports no directional effects in either the rear or front speakers. While the bulk of this track is clear of most hiss or distortion, overall this is an only passable track that should have been given a 5.1 remix. Also included on this disc are Spanish and English subtitles. Alas, the only extra features available on this disc include some thin production notes and a few pithy cast and crew biographies.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
The best of director John Hughes' many teen-angst films of the 1980s, this perceptive, absorbing comedy-drama basically puts five different teenage archetypes in a classroom for Saturday detention and lets them interact. Judd Nelson is most memorable as a bully who reveals his abusive home life, but the entire ensemble cast is terrific. Adults may be somewhat distraught by the amount of venom directed their way, and the idea that one day in detention could unite such disparate types stretches credibility, but the result is a sometimes heartbreaking, often hilarious, surprisingly moving film.
