Coming-of-age films begun marinating in stereotypes during the rush of 80's John Hugh's films and these standardized roles have only recently been broken thanks to Hollywood's acceptance of social movements in America. The Breakfast Club is one of those Hugh's film and it's as charming as it is typecast. With that said, I found myself really enjoying the film. It's been awhile since I've revisited this classic and while watching it, I felt honestly connected to the High School version of myself, which is a mindset I haven't encountered in sometime. Bender's rage against the machine was more relatable than ever, I felt connected to Brian's character (even though I never had straight A's), and I thought Allison's off-beat persona was really cute. I believe Hugh's earnest portrayal of these character types made it difficult to rewrite this genre, which Hugh's so clearly had figured out at this time.
