Breakfast Club reunion!
28 February 2001 | by (Fairbanks, U.S. Territory of Alaska) – See all my reviews

Dude, helloooooo?!? First off, how possibly could this movie have over a dozen votes of 10? Gimme a break! It wasn't bad, a minor cast of actors and not a good role for Ally Sheedy. Too many things going on to hit a good peak of intensity anywhere. Anthony Michael Hall was pretty good, actually, but laughable at first 'cause it's not easy to get used to him in such a role. The greatest thing about this movie, what made it most appealing to me, is the reunion of Ally Sheedy and Anthony Michael Hall, 1st time on screen together since the 80's teen classic "Breakfast Club." Hey, if you love that movie then this is worth a watch but if you go votin' 10 for it... see a psychiatrist.
