Breakfast Club DVD as a Box Set option.
The Breakfast Club (Dir. John Hughes, 1985): Without doubt, John Hughes' The Breakfast Club is one of the greatest teen movies of all-time, if not the best. Without it, we might not have witnessed the phenomenal rise of the 'Brat Pack'; the group of actors synonymous with the teen films of the '80s. They were five teenage students with nothing in common, faced with spending a Saturday detention together in their High School library. At 7am, they had nothing to say, but by 4pm, they had bared their souls to each other and become good friends. To the outside world they were simply the Jock, the Brain, the Criminal, the Princess, and the Kook, but to each other, they would always be the Breakfast Club. The film's title comes from the nickname invented by students and staff for detention at the school attended by the son of one of John Hughes' friends. Thus, those who were sent to detention were designated members of "The Breakfast Club". (1.75:1 Anamorphic Widescreen, DTS 5.1 & Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround)
About Last Night (Dir. Edward Zwick, 1986): Rob Lowe doesn't want to get serious. Demi Moore doesn't want to get used. Together, they're an unforgettable couple in the sexy, contemporary comedy. After drinks at a favourite Chicago hangout, Danny Martin (Lowe) and Debbie Sullivan (Moore) head to Danny's place to indulge in the predictable single's quest - the one-night stand. Their affair is casual, sensual, and supposedly over until something surprising happens. They want to see each other again. It's the start of an intense relationship that irritates Danny's rowdy best friend (James Belushi) and astounds Debbie's cynical buddy/roomie (Elizabeth Perkins), who do everything possible to break them up. But, Danny and Debbie wind up living together, and midst the daily drudge of domestic life, they begin to realise that making love is easy, saying "I love you" more difficult, and being in love the hardest of all. (1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen, Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround)
St. Elmo's Fire (Dir. Joel Schumacher, 1985): Billy: life has changed since school, but has Billy noticed? Wendy: respectable, hardworking and a virgin. Daddy says "marry a nice boy" but she has other ideas! Alec: success, wealth and a wife. He knows what he wants but can he have it? Kevin: what's his secret? Scared of Women? Gay? Or is it something that'll really shock his best friend? Jules: life is one high-powered party. Sex, drugs and really pushing life to the limit. Leslie: she loves her work and she loves her boyfriend...but work's less trouble! Kirbo: a romantic wrestling with reality, chasing the girl of his dreams. This is the story of a tightly-knit group of college graduates who must now confront, as individuals, all the issues of life after college in the 1980s. They must make tough decisions regarding their careers and relationships that will shape a lifetime and cause conflicts within their friendships.
This is an eighties classic (note the fantastic Brat Pack cast!), so a expect to laugh, cry and go through it all with the characters. This is the Breakfast Club of college graduates.
