by | August 6, 2009 at 5:54 PM | The Movies

The Breakfast Club tells the story of five teenagers from various levels on the social ladder locked in Saturday detention together under the watchful eye of the hardassed Principal Vernon (Paul Gleason), and the life-changing experience that follows for rich girl Molly Ringwald, outcast rebel Judd Nelson, brainy nerd Anthony Michael Hall, handsome jock Emilio Estevez and loner weirdo Ally Sheedy.

Watch these clips and remember why the exploration of teen perceptions vs. reality crafted the late John Hughes is considered the quintessential 80s movie.
