Detention is adjourned! It has been 30 years since we first sat in Saturday detention with ‘The Breakfast Club.’ Now, we kid you not, there was a real life ‘Breakfast Club’ reunion and we’ve got the picture to prove it. Check it out!
Believe it or not, we are coming up on the 30th anniversary (!) of the classic 80s film, The Breakfast Club. To honor the momentous occasion, two of the film’s original stars, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy— who you may know better as the Princess and the Basket Case– got together at SXSW to participate in a special Q and A. You’ve got to see the nostalgic reunion pic!
‘Breakfast Club’ Reunion
They’ll always have detention.
Even after all these years, it seems that Breakfast Club stars Molly and Ally have remained close. On Mar. 16, the two got together at Austin’s Paramount Theatre to discuss all things about the iconic John Hughes film.
Despite the film’s continued success, it seems that Molly still sometimes cannot believe how many people the film has touched. “I always loved the script, and I loved the movie, but I never imagined that we would be talking about it 30 years later,” she said during a Today Show appearance in February.
Additionally, to celebrate the film’s 30 year milestone, screenings of the high school dramedy will be held across the country on Mar. 26 and Mar. 31. The special anniversary edition will include interviews with Molly and Ally, as well as some of the film’s other stars including Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall and Emilion Esteves, also known as the original five Breakfast Club members.
It’s hard to believe it’s been so many years since the film first hit theaters, but there’s no doubt it continues to impact people all over the world. “There’s been nothing to replace it,” Molly told Us Weekly. “Until something comes along that can hold a candle to these movies, they will continue to be what they are.”
