Annoyed at Bender the gang decides to all the take the blame. The camera cuts to Bender shouting loudly, ripping posters of the walls and hitting a stick on the wall.
The Principal hears this and continues after Bender.
In the movie The Breakfast Club, five seemingly different adolescents are assigned Saturday detention where they learn that although they each fit a particular stereotype, they all have the same characteristics, but they are expressed differently because they have different experiences, strengths and weaknesses that makes them who they are.
In the movie, Bender is the “criminal”, Brian is the “brain” and Allison is the “psychopath.” Each of their situations, strengths and weakness are similar to students that are in our classrooms currently or we may have in our classrooms in the future.
The scene which I found to be the best was when they were running around the school trying to make their way back to the library before the principal noticed them missing. The first scene shows of the characters running down a hall, then the camera moves away from them and bringing the audiences attention to the next hall they are going to run down.
The direction gives the impression that they are on a wild goose chase and don t know where they are going.Why I class it under so many is because it contains equal amounts of all of them. The storyline slowly progresses into a wide and exciting tale of Saturday detention.Romance develops from friendship into love, their lives are told in the film and it has funny lines throughout the script. They are told to write and essay explaining why they are here.Then we have the geek who always wears what his mother tells him too, never late for school, always hands in his homework and doesn t get into trouble. Last is the basketcase, she hides away from the world and keeps to herself, Always late for class, occasionaly hands in homework.Relating to the athlete is the school snob or princess, always thinking they are better than everyone else, they have a good reputation. Their dress sense is no better than the delinquents, wearing baggy clothes and all black. The film represents the levels of high school standards, which represents where you stand. There are not many places represented in this film. With a look at the Janitors room, library, the halls ways and even the basement this films budget kept its filming to a minimum.Genre The film cannot be placed under one specific genre- it could be classed as a romantic film, drama, or comedy.Romance because in the film more than a friendship is formed.It could also be classed as drama because it deals with teen angst and the effects it has on a teenager s life.The film might even be placed under comedy because it contains some witty comebacks between the group and their Principal.Secondly the drama, I love drama, a little bit of crying or being sad never killed anyone and I thinks its great that this film can add it into its super storyline.And lastly the comedy, with the dumb ideas and the witty lines, this film is a must see. With pop songs of the 80 s to dance to it truly was a brilliant film that should be admired for years to come.
