by Vincent Suarez Oh, how I wish I could hate The Breakfast Club. Maybe it's because I was a geeky high-school senior in 1985, when the film was released, and I defiantly loathed anything that smacked of cool. Perhaps it's because writer/producer/director John Hughes has been responsible for some of the most inane (e.g., Dutch, Curly Sue, Baby's Day Out) and unnecessary (e.g., Flubber, Miracle on 34th Street, 101 Dalmations) films in recent memory.
