“Screws fall out all the time. The world is an imperfect place”

This week we join the brat pack in John Hughes’ 1985 coming of age comedy drama The Breakfast Club.

We discover that this movie is more than just daft haircuts and angry power chords as Paul, who loved The Breakfast Club as a teenager, finds watching it again all these years later a therapeutic experience and he finally accepts he WAS Brian.  Meanwhile, Rachael reveals she was a straight A student and Andy discusses his love/hate relationship with the movie.

Later, Paul decides to dress up as Ally Sheedy, which worries a confused Andy who had a crush on the actress, and, as he unleashes his anger at the makeover of his beloved (“a lovely woman ruined”), Racheal takes a look at some other movie makeover scenes including Grease, She’s All That, Pretty In Pink and Muriel’s Wedding.

Andycontinues his hot & cold relationship with The Breakfast Club by discussinghis frustration at the ending, and looks at some other movies withdisappointing denouements, including It’s a Wonderful Life and the first twoSuperman movies.  And is that a chickendrumstick in Judd Nelson’s hand at the end?

We love a bit of movie trivia on Spoiler, and The Breakfast Club is a veritable trivia-fest, as we discover that Rick Moranis, John Cusack and Laura Dern were all in the frame for roles in the movie, that Simple Minds weren’t the original choice to record “Don’t You Forget About Me”, and we even find out the make and model of Brian’s pen.

Andwe end this series with another of our fiercely fought music quizzes. Thistime, Andy tests Paul and Rachael’s knowledge of 80s movie themes and raisesthe stakes with two specially made mix tapes as prizes: “The Best of the80s” for the winner, and “The Worst of the 80s” for the loser,which they MUST promise to listen to in its entirety, despite it including”Daddy’s Home” by Cliff Richard.

This week’s scale: The Breakfast Club or School of Rock
