The Breakfast Club/Weird Science DVD

| DVD

The Breakfast Club: Without doubt John Hughes' The Breakfast Club is one of the greatest teen movies of all-time if not the best. Without it we might not have witnessed the phenomenal rise of the 'Brat Pack'; the group of actors synonymous with the teen films of the '80s. They were five teenage students with nothing in common faced with spending a Saturday detention together in their High School library. At 7am they had nothing to say but by 4pm they had bared their souls to each other and become good friends. To the outside world they were simply the Jock the Brain... the Criminal the Princess and the Kook but to each other they would always be the Breakfast Club. Weird Science: The Frankenstein legend takes an uproarious twist in this outrageous special effects-laden comedy from John Hughes. Nerdy computer whiz Wyatt Donnelly and best friend Gary Wallace (Anthony Michael Hall) endeavour to create the perfect woman (the magnificent Kelly Le Brock). Like a computer generated fairy godmother the duo's out-of-this-world creation guides the pair through the pleasures and pitfalls of adolescence. This far-out sci-fi fable brings everyone's favourite teen fantasies to life through the miracle of Weird Science. [show more]

Pair of classic 1980s teen flicks. In 'The Breakfast Club' (1985), five very different teenagers are stuck with each other for the day when they are forced to spend Saturday at school on detention. Gradually, unlikely friendships form. John Hughes' seminal high school comedy set the template for a number of '80s teen movies, while Simple Minds scored a huge hit with their theme song, 'Don't You Forget About Me'. 'Weird Science' (1985) is another Hughes vehicle mixing sci-fi, teen-fantasies and comedy. A couple of nerdy schoolboys hook a Barbie doll to their computer and scan in magazine pictures of perfect parts of the female anatomy as part of an experiment. The result is the woman of their dreams - Lisa (Kelly Le Brock), a curvaceous and house proud beauty - whose mission it is to help them get the girls. They soon find themselves the most popular boys at school after Lisa manages to loosen them up a bit.
