    Recently caught the last hour of The Breakfast Club on TV, forgot about this movie totally, oh the memories. While having many faults I got a lot of enjoyment watching this film, anyone agree? I have just ordered the above box set, anyone got it? I have never seen Sixteen Candles is it more of the same?

    Had this boxset. Can't say I'm a fan of Sixteen Candles, but the other 2 movies are great. You should also get a CD with a few music tracks on it in the boxset. Nice set to have.

    The Geek: How's it going?
    Samantha: How's what going?
    The Geek: You know - things, life, whatnot.
    Samantha: Life is not whatnot, and it's none of your business.

    I think that 16 Candles is the best of the three (I enjoy them all mind), and with this set you have the added bonus of DTS sound!

    You havnt seen pretty in pink !!!!!!!!!! where were you in the 80's - great film

    You should check out Some Kind of Wonderful - in my opinion the best John Hughes film ever

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000455/

    thats a list of his films. a pretty impressive list. he pretty much created that genre of american teen comedies

    sixteen candles isn't that great, but a lot of people look back on it fondly. breakfast club and pretty in pink are good and similar, weird science and ferris bueller are a couple of the best, and uncle buck and planes trains and automobiles are also good. he also wrote or produced stuff like home alone and beethoven, and some of the national lampoons stuff

    sixteen candles, breakfast club and pretty in pink would have been a more complimentary boxset choice, in fact i thought that was the contents of a box set. weird science, ferris bueller and planes trains or uncle buck would maybe make another more complimentary set

    either way, the movies he actually directed are the ones i prefer best

    Totally agree, Battle!!
    Love all John Hughes films but Some Kind of Wonderful is, in my opinion, the best movie he did- great soundtrack too!

    Hi,

    The Breakfast Club was a defining moment for those of us currently in our twenties and early-thirties, and a phenomenal film to boot. :clap: I can still watch this, and even though I know a lot of the dialogue and ending, it's still really great fun! The opening sequence is great, as the kids arrive to school, preparing for they day in detention. Best bit though is this:

    John Bender (School bad-boy): :Excuse me. Does Barry Manilow know you raided his wardrobe?
    Richard Vernon (Principal): And I'll give you the answer to that question, Mr Bender, next Saturday! Don't mess with the bull, son, or you'll get the horns!

    Priceless! :rotfl:


    Pooch

    I was the same, but the set isn't a bad price for the other three films.

    TBH, I liked PT&A better when I watched it from this set than when I've tried watching it before.
