The Breakfast Club on MTV Movie Awards

BreakfastClub.jpgThe MTV Movie Awards in and of itself is pretty damn useless. The categories mean nothing, the awards mean nothing and the nominee list is often a total joke. However, one can’t deny that it also a pretty entertaining show to watch since they usually come up with some VERY funny stuff (The acceptance speech given by Gollum for Best Animated Character was the greatest acceptance speech of all time).

So chalk up another great PR move for the folks over at MTV. Apparently they are getting the original cast of The Breakfast Club back together for this year’s show. Here’s what the good folks over at The USA Today has to say:

At the 2005 MTV Movie Awards, to air June 9, the network plans to reunite the cast of the classic ’80s movie, the cable channel said Friday. Though Emilio Estevez, who played Andrew Clark, isn’t confirmed, in attendance will be Molly Ringwald (Claire Standish), Ally Sheedy (Allison Reynolds), Anthony Michael Hall (Brian Johnson) and Judd Nelson (John Bender).

I LOVED The Breakfast Club. It’s a film that pretty much unintentionally presented a definition of the diversity of my generation. Hmmmm… perhaps they should do a “Breakfast Club 2: 20 Years Later”. Oh forget it.

  1. ok i really really really hate this dude named vic for one thing nopoleon dinamites one of the funniest movies ever and the breakfast club is the best movie ever and you prbably have never even seen either of them

  2. The movie puts the youth in the right retropect. You cannot judge a book by its cover. But that is what people did and still are doing. The suggestion of a sequel for the 20 year high school reunion rocks.

    People didn’t and still is thinking the youth has no problems. They are wrong and the movies showed that in a realistic way.

    The Breakfast club is GREAT!!

  3. I’ve long favored a sequel to “The Breakfast Club,” set at their 20 year high school reunion. I think the 20 year reunion would be a perfect occasion for a sequel as the characters would be entering middle age and dealing with a whole new set of issues. And there would be excellent potential for character growth.

    The first movie was mostly outstanding, portraying ’80s Midwestern high school life with phenomenal accuracy in almost every way. To me, the movie made a very powerful statement about the way people judge each other superficially but when they are away from peer pressure and communicate with each other and get to know each other, the barriers break down and they can become friends.

    Many sequels are largely re-hashes of their originals and should never be made. But a sequel to “The Breakfast Club” would have outstanding potential.

  4. does anybody really give a s**t about over the hill actors past their prime who find it important for one reason or another to appear on the same stage for a minute or less just so they can try to relive their juvenile deliquent youth in front of a bunch of stupid 12 year olds who have nothing better to do than listen to a cd full of gangster and thugs trying to make ryhmes out of four letter words? Please, when today’s youth vote for Napolean Dynamite as best movie, it sends a clear message that the world today as we know it is going south at a very fast pace. And as for the breakfast club, how sad that those actors are trying to use a “B” movie from the 80’s to get some much needed face time on TV. Wow, what losers.

  5. i hope since there getting back to together

    they can record a commentary for a 20th anniversary dvd

    they could record it the day before or day of the mtv thing

  6. Wasn’t it originally supposed to be a trilogy with one film every ten years? I think that idea kind of died when John Hughes couldn’t get everybody to agree to come back in the 90’s so its strange that they would say no to another movie but yes to what will probably be a cheesy skit on the movie awards.

    Also, has anybody ever read anything about the 8 hour cut of the breakfast club that Hughes supposedly has? I guess it plays out in real time (?). I hope it gets some kind of dvd release at some point. I would probably only ever wanna sit through it once though.

  7. You mean Gollum, yes? And, yeah, that was the best acceptance speech ever. I wonder if actors actually mention in their resumes the MTV movie awards they’ve won.
