The Breakfast Club reunion was on Good Morning America/GMA this morning… 25 years later and Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson and Anthony Michael Hall take a look back at the film classic.
Note that Emilio Estevez was unable to appear because he’s working on a film. Bummer!
Yes, to make you feel old, Good Morning America reunited the cast of The Breakfast Club, catching up with the actors and getting their insights into working on that 1985 Saturday detention flick.
First of all, we learn that director John Hughes reportedly wrote the screenplay in one weekend! Wow.
Teens related to the characters in The Breakfast Club, and it created stars out of the cast, who became part of the “Brat Pack.”
Robin Roberts asks why The Breakfast Club was such a hit and is still so loved, and Molly Ringwald says “there hasn’t been anything else even remotely as meaningful or charming.”
For fun, GMA takes a look at Ally Sheedy’s unique Breakfast Club sandwich, with Sheedy recalling what was in it and that she had to eat four of them.
Molly is still asked if she can still apply lipstick with her cleavage, but it actually never happened. Movie magic, guys!
The cast’s biggest regret? They’ll never get the chance to star in another John Hughes’ film because Hughes died last summer at 59.
The Breakfast Club cast talks about the shock of John Hughes’ loss, remembering Hughes’ message of the film. When asked if the characters would still be friends on Monday morning after detention? They seemed uncertain.
Part two of the GMA Breakfast Club reunion airs tomorrow.
Of the four present, Molly Ringwald has three children and Ally Sheedy has a daughter.
Can you believe that it’s the 25th anniversary of The Breakfast Club? Was this a movie you first saw when you were a kid?
