Overview

John Hughes' tale of a daylong detention, The Breakfast Club, comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 English soundtracks are available. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. The biggest selling point for the disc is the fact that the original music from the theatrical release of the film has been restored. While it would be accurate to say that the film has never sounded this good on home video, the lack of any substantive extras will probably disappoint the more hardcore fans of this iconic teen classic. The disc was released along with versions of two other John Hughes films, Weird Science and Sixteen Candles. The three DVDs were known as the High School Reunion Collection.

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.
