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.


Andrew McCarthy reveals he’s working on a Brat Pack doc
August 10th, 2022 under Andrew McCarthy, Brat Pack, Rob Lowe. [ Comments: none ]

Last year, Andrew McCarthy released his memoir Brat: An ’80s Story. This year, he is working on a documentary about his friends who were in the Brat Pack with him, inspired by the novel.

The actor revealed that one of the Brats he will be interviewing is Rob Lowe, with whom he co-starred in St. Elmo’s Fire.

The Pretty in Pink heartthrob did not say who else would be part of it, but I am assuming it will also include Molly Ringwald, Demi Moore, Jon Cryer, Anthony Michael Hall, and Judd Nelson, to name a few.

Since it is one of the Packers that is making it, I cannot wait to see it when it comes out next year.

Who is your favorite member of the Pack? I have too many to name, including the man behind this post.


BTWF: Molly Ringwald for California Raisins

Before Molly Ringwald worked at a record store in Pretty in Pink, she was a babysitter handing out California Raisins. She looks the same now as she did when she was 14 in that 1982 commercial.


Andrew McCarthy and Demi Moore have a mini-St. Elmo’s Fire reunion
March 14th, 2022 under Andrew McCarthy, Brat Pack, Demi Moore, Reunions. [ Comments: 7 ]

Back in 1985, a movie came out called St. Elmo’s Fire, and it is said to be the movie that launched the Brat Pack. It starred Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Rob Lowe, Ally Sheedy, Mare Winningham, Judd Nelson, and Emilio Estevez. Every teenager in the ’80s wanted their 20s to be like the characters in that movie.

That was then. The movie never got a sequel, so we were left to imagine what would happen to those friends when they were in the 50s. Over the weekend, we got to see that Jules and Kevin would still be hanging out in the year 2022.

So why did Andrew McCarthy and Demi Moore reunite? The actor wrote, “Great talking with my old friend Demi Moore today for my Brat Pack documentary!” Now, I want to know all about that doc that he is making and who is going to be in it. If the documentary is as good as his autobiography, Brat, it is going to be even better than St. Elmo’s Fire.

Now, let’s talk about how incredible the two 59-year-olds look. They look even better now than they did then.


Anthony Michael Hall’s name is not Anthony Michael Hall
October 15th, 2021 under Brat Pack, Kelly Ripa, Ryan Seacrest. [ Comments: none ]

Ever since the ’80s, we have known Anthony Michael Hall as Anthony Michael Hall. It turns out his name is not Anthony Michael Hall.

I have never heard that his name was anything but Anthony Michael Hall. Have you?

Well, yesterday, when Anthony Michael Hall was on Live with Kelly and Ryan, he revealed to Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest that his birth name is Michael Anthony Hall.

So, why did he switch up his first and middle names? Back when he was a kid, actors in SAG were not allowed to have the same name as someone else in the union. Therefore, his parents decided to go with Anthony Michael Hall. And the rest is Hollywood history.

I can’t believe he was able to go over 40 years without us knowing any differently. Or am I the only one who didn’t know this?
