In the 1980s, actors Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy ruled Hollywood in what was known as the “Brat Pack.” Now, 35 years later, it’s Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid’s turn, along with fellow young Hollywood stars Ansel Elgort, Dylan Penn, and Hopper Penn. In a new spread dubbed by Vogue magazine as “Hollywood’s New Brat Pack,” the youngsters open up about being in the limelight. “I’ve been kind of on the low, just working [...] »
John Hughes wasn’t much of a name yet in 1985 when The Breakfast Club was released, but it was already clear that he was one to watch. His scripts for Mr. Mom and National Lampoon’s Vacation had resulted in box-office hits, and while his own directorial debut — Sixteen Candles — wasn’t as immediately beloved it showed the mash-up of affection and wit that would become his trademark. The Breakfast Club has its detractors, but for most viewers the film offers even a minor glimpse back to their teen years. Not everyone fit into these specific five molds — the athlete (Emilio Estevez), the princess (Molly Ringwald), the criminal (Judd Nelson), the brain (Anthony Michael Hall) and the basket case (Ally Sheedy) — but there’s an honesty here even within the characterizations. The film was re-released onto Blu-ray earlier this month with a remastered picture and additional extras including a previous commentary track with Nelson and Hall. The »

Don’t you forget about Molly Ringwald. Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t!
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of John Hughes’ 1985 classic, The Breakfast Club, stars Ringwald and Ally Sheedy attended a special screening at SXSW (a digitally remastered version of the film will also be released in select theaters from March 26-31). Which seems like the perfect opportunity to find out what our favorite detention-goers look like three decades later:
Molly Ringwald as Claire Standish, the “Princess”
Ringwald starred on The Secret Life of the American Teenager until 2013, lent her voice to the villainous Dark Princess in 2014's Rainbow Brite, and will next appear in a reboot of another ‘80s classic: Jem and the Holograms.
Sheedy had a multi-season stint on Psych, where she played serial killer Mr. Yang until 2013, and most recently appeared in the off-Broadway production “The Long Shrift,” directed »
The high school "Princess" and the "Basket Case" are together again! Almost 30 years since the teen dramaedy hit theaters, "The Breakfast Club's" Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy reunited during SXSW in Austin, Texas on Monday. The veteran actresses posed for pictures together on the red carpet before heading into the special screening of the cult classic and stayed for a brief Q&A to celebrate the flick's 30th anniversary. Molly, 47, looked gorgeous wearing a white lace dress with gold accessories, styling her blonde locks in a cute bob and sported natural makeup. Ally, 52, opted for low-cut black maxi dress, which she paired with a smokey eye and loose waves. Decades have passed since "a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal" met up in detention and made movie history in 1985. Ringwald recently talked about her memorable role during an interview on "Today." "I always loved the script, »

It's hard to imagine my childhood without The Breakfast Club, as it was one of those defining films that stuck with you long after it was over and drew you back again and again to experience the various characters and all their complexities. A brain (Anthony Michael Hall), an athlete (Emilio Estevez), a basket case (Ally Sheedy), a princess (Molly Ringwald), and a criminal (Judd Nelson) all met for detention on a Saturday afternoon and everything was changed forever.

The Breakfast Club stars Anthony Michael Hall and Judd Nelson discuss the term "Brat Pack" that has followed them for the past 30 years in an exclusive preview for The Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary Edition, which debuts on Blu-ray today, March 10. David Blum, who coined "The Brat Pack" term in a New York Magazine cover story, revealed that he included several actors between the ages of 21 and 30 and who were successful in Hollywood, although the term has largely come to identify cast members from both The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo's Fire. Little did any of the "Brat Packers" know that the term would be prevalent to this day, as Judd Nelson reveals that they weren't the "rascallions" others may have perceived them to be.

It's hard to believe but it's been 30 years since we spent Saturday detention with a princess, a criminal, a basket case, a jock and a brain.
Watch: Celebrating 30 Years Of 'The Karate Kid'
The film, about five high schoolers gathered on Saturday for a detention session, starred Judd Nelson (John Bender), Emilio Estevez (Andrew Clark), Anthony Michael Hall (Brian Johnson), Ally Sheedy (Allison Reynolds), and Molly Ringwald (Claire Standish), who admitted to Et in 1985 that she didn't feel right for the part of the princess because she was so different from her.
"Am I pretty enough to do this [role]?" Ringwald said. "That was my biggest worry and I'm not what you would call the conventional beauty, at least I don't feel that way. But you know »
Eddie Murphy made his big return to Saturday Night Live on Sunday night when he made a guest appearance during the show's star-studded 40th anniversary special. The comedian, 53, was given a heartfelt introduction by Chris Rock, who credited Murphy as his comedy inspiration. "I wanted to be Eddie Murphy," Rock said. He also said that Murphy helped save SNL, which was in a ratings slump when he joined in 1981 at the age of 19, making him the second-youngest cast member in the show's long history. (The youngest cast member ever would be Anthony Michael Hall, who joined the show when he »

The 1985 John Hughes teen comedy classic The Breakfast Club celebrates its 30th anniversary on February 15. That’s right, it’s been thirty years since the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess, and the criminal walked into detention as strangers and left as something else. The beloved coming-of-age film — which was a critical and box office success upon its release — featured some of the biggest stars of the ’80s, who all graduated to various levels of success after The Breakfast Club.
As we celebrate the film being a staple of pop culture and cinema, we wanted to check in on the cast and see where they are now. So what are Anthony Michael Hall, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Molly Ringwald, and Judd Nelson — who were all members of the iconic Brat Pack — up to since they spent that fateful Saturday afternoon together in Shermer High School? We check in on the cast, »

30 years ago today, John Hughes's teen movie The Breakfast Club opened in the Us, and although it wasn't a runaway box office hit, in the years since it has rightly claimed a place as a screen classic.
Buoyed by brilliant performances, a sharp script and direction from Hughes and that Simple Minds track, this is a film we return to again and again. But what happened to its stars? We go then and now with the cast to find out what happened to the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess and the criminal.

As he grew out of child star roles, Hall sought to shed his established screen persona with a diverse selection of character parts across film and TV. »
The Breakfast Club opened in theaters on Feb. 15, 1985. It has since become a classic, celebrated not only for capturing the decade from which it originated but also for nailing the hapless, yet hopeful angst of teenage life in any decade. Even thirty years later, there's a lot to learn from this story of five disparate teens - Andy the Jock (Emilio Estevez), Brian the Brain (Anthony Michael Hall), Bender the Criminal (Judd Nelson), Claire the Princess (Molly Ringwald) and Allison the Basket Case (Ally Sheedy) - forced to spend Saturday detention together. Here's our take on the thirty best lessons. »

There are plenty of films about the troubles and triumphs of love in the '80s teen movie canon. Say Anything taught dudes about the importance of grand romantic gestures. Sixteen Candles showed ladies that just being yourself is more than enough to land Jake Ryan. Ferris Bueller's Day Off taught both genders that life moves pretty fast, and we should all stop and look around with our best friends and significant others once in a while. But when we think about cinematic tales of teen romance, The Breakfast Club usually isn't the first movie to come to mind. Well, »

Few films have captured the complex inner lives of American teenagers better than John Hughes’ “The Breakfast Club.” Released three decades ago on February 15, the movie, with its expert casting, pitch-perfect dialogue and refreshing sincerity, helped pave the way for others like “Heathers,” “Say Anything” and “Mean Girls,” as well as groundbreaking TV shows like “My So Called Life” and “Freaks and Geeks.” Virtually overnight, Hughes became the poet laureate of teen angst and a passionate chronicler of the modern high school experience. On the 30th anniversary of “The Breakfast Club,” here’s a look back at John Hughes’ 10 finest films, plus five that didn’t quite make the grade.

John Candy played the title role of a lovable oaf whose babysitting skills are put to the test in this lightweight yet undeniably funny family comedy. The fifth of eight Hughes films in which he appeared, »
