Happy 40th Anniversary to The Breakfast Club!
March 24th, 2024 under Brat Pack. [ Comments: none ]

Forty years on March 24, 1984, five students showed up for detention. And our lives have never been the same.

Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you’re crazy for making us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us… In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basket case, a princess, and a criminal… Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.

So I say to Anthony Michael Hall, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Molly Ringwald, and Judd Nelson, “Thank you!”


A Breakfast Club reunion!

Believe it or not, but The Breakfast Club is nearing its 40th reunion, I mean anniversary on March 24th. However, we don’t have to wait that long to see the princess, the nerd, the criminal, and the basket case together again. That is because they had their own little reunion at Rhode Island Comic Con this weekend.

Thankfully, Michael Rosenbaum’s brother and sister-in-law wanted a photo with Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, and Ally Sheedy. Therefore, we got this photo from the Smallville star.

I know that John Hughes is no longer with us. But I really wish someone would give us a sequel to this movie. Let’s see how they turned out. We’ve all wondered that, so let’s see how they would interact at their high school reunion.

Where is the jock? Probably too busy coaching youth hockey.


A mini Facts of Life reunion with Molly Ringwald and Mindy Cohn!

Did you know that Molly Ringwald was on the first season of The Facts of Life in 1979? She was, and unfortunately, she was not asked to come back for season 2.

Over the weekend, she reunited with her co-star Mindy Cohn at the Rhode Island Comic Con in Providence. And we found out what an Eastland School for Girls reunion would look like!

Don’t Molly, 55, and Natalie, I mean Cohn, 57, look fabulous? So much so that I wish we could get a Facts of Life sequel with them starring in it!


OMG! It’s Pretty in Pink’s Blane and Duckie!!!
March 29th, 2023 under Andrew McCarthy, Brat Pack, Jon Cryer. [ Comments: none ]

In 1986, everyone was obsessed with John Hughes’ Pretty in Pink. People debated if Andie made the right choice when she chose Blain over Duckie at the prom.

It was a hard decision. Should she kiss the cute, rich preppy or her lovable, awkward best friend? Of course, she went with the first guy.

The last time we saw them, Andie, aka Molly Ringwald, put her lips over the man whose kisser she thought they looked better on.

But that was then. Andrew McCarthy recently sat down with Jon Cryer for his documentary about the Brat Pack. We don’t know what they talked about, but I hope they talked about the lip thing.

Actually, I lied. We do know one thing they didn’t talk about. And that thing McCartney said is that Cryer “didn’t once call me a major appliance!”

This is not the only cast member from the coming-of-age classic that McCarthy shared a reunion photo with recently. He also has been working with James Spade on the final season of Blacklist.

I love that McCarthy keeps working with his ex-co-stars! That says a lot about him.


It’s Breakfast Club’s Claire Standish and Allison Reynolds
December 5th, 2022 under Brat Pack. [ Comments: none ]

On Saturday, March 24, 1984, Claire Standish and Allison Reynolds spent their day in detention, and the two girls became best friends forever.

Don’t believe me? Here are Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy having a Christmas dinner and hug, and they look as close as they did 38 years ago.

I know that John Hughes is no longer with us, but why can’t we have a reunion movie for their 40th so that we can see what The Breakfast Club is up to today? Did Vice Principal Richard Vernon have an impact on their lives? I want to know if Bender and Claire got married. Did Andrew ever stand up to his dad? Did Brian go from nerd to stud? We know he did, but still. And is Allison more outgoing now that she is out of high school?

There is so much we want to know, and we deserve to know it. Especially after this photo.
