Five high school students, with all different stereotypes, meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other and figure out that they have a lot more in common than they thought.

The Breakfast Club came out in 1985. Written and directed by John Hughes./ So popular that the opening weekend they made $5,107,599 just in the United States.

A summery of the movie: Five students go to detention for crimes and misdemeanors committed at school. With stereotypes such as the "princess", the "athlete", the "brain", the "basket-case", and the "criminal". The Vice Principal tells them to write an essay "describe to me who you think you are". While doing so they all come together and realize that the stereotypes don't classify them to who they really are.
