I don't care if this is an obvious favorite movie. It's an obvious favorite movie because, well, it rocks. Emilio Estevez is my fav character. He's the most authentic and the nicest. I like nice.

This movie was a lot better than I thought it would be. I know it was made by John Hughes, mastermind behind Pretty in Pink and Ferris Bueller's day off, but this seemed just like a normal cliched teen movie. However, this was pretty good, taking the title of John Hughes' second best film and one of the best teen movies ever made. What I like about John Hughes is that he shows that films don't need mindless action sequences or half-naked women to be good. All of his films were pretty …

Pros: Great cast, script, directing     Cons: explicit drug use (marijuana)     The Bottom Line: This movie is a great example of ensemble casting. This movie is about the story. It relies on the ability of the cast members to produce a stunning show.     This movie is a GREAT movie for teens today. I teach high school and I show this to all my classes every year and have them write a paragraph on who changes the most.       …

This movie very accurately describes the trials and tribulations of five very different teenagers.

Its almost like a teen therapy session and in the end, each person seems to learn from one another. Judd Nelson gives a real killer performance as a troubled teen trying to find happiness in a world that does nothing but dump on …

I like beer, the shape of teapots, and kitschy diners. I tend to overuse commas. Piles of books can send my into a frenzy like nothing else.

About this movie


When five high school students from different social groups are forced to spend a Saturday together in detention, they find themselves interacting with and understanding each other for the first time. A jock (Emilio Estevez), a criminal (Judd Nelson), a princess (Molly Ringwald), a basket case (Ally Sheedy), and a brain (Anthony Michael Hall) talk about everything from parental tension to sex to peer pressure to hurtful stereotypes while serving time. Ultimately, the five find that they may have more in common than they ever imagined and learn more about themselves as well as each other. The only question is, Will they remember what they've learned after they leave detention? Director and writer John Hughes, along with the stellar Brat Pack, cast makes this a memorable, moving film filled with believable dialogue, intelligent humor, and a sufficient dose of high school hijinx. Its timeless appeal makes this film a teen classic along with Hughes's other teen films from the 1980s: SIXTEEN CANDLES and FERRI...
