    I feel like Zac Efron would make a good Bender, he looks almost exactly like Judd Nelson appears here.

    With the benefit of 30 years of hindsight, it's pretty clear that Molly Ringwald, was and is EXACTLY, CLAIRE.

    I don't get the love for this movie. It was so cheesey especially the jocks story of gluing a kids but together. Laugh Everytime at that .

    I really love this movie. I can watch it again and again! The story line which shows them and us that basically we really all have flaws and insecurities. On another note - I think Bender is so damm cute. Love his hair better in the movie. ?: Do any of you think that Clair and Bender were in love and would be together after Saturday? Boy friend/girl friend? I think that if Clair could put away her so called status in school, a relationship would send a incredible example

    Am I the only one who thinks Judd looks extremely uncomfortable during this interview? He looks like he does not want to be there AT ALL lol. Look at the way he is not only crossing his legs but also has his hands sandwiched between them. There's some funky body language going on here.

    Whoever posted this thank you every cast member was awesome but Judd is the actor I admire and is an inspiration to me he deserves a star on the walk of fame but these are not the reasons I admire him he’s kind he’s down to earth he loves his fans and he cares deeply about others especially animals he does not walk around with 50 bodyguards and drives a Mercedes he’s average and just has a heart of gold and I hope someday he finds the right woman because he deserves to have a girl that will take care of him and overlook his past and he’s got a heart of gold who cannot engage with a man like him with so much talent and more I respect and honor this man very much I have serve depression he’s like my guardian angel I hope to meet him someday and thank him he’s got a angelic soul I’m not sure if he’s aware or not but thank you and wish you the best now and always your a talented man it’s too bad Hollywood didn’t see this so are Molly ally Emilio and micheal awesome ppl with hearts of gold I love this movie it’s a part of my childhood and I still enjoy it to this day but I look beyond judds character he so much more than Bender ❤️

    • musicaltheatergeek79
      musicaltheatergeek79 4 months ago

      I think in here he's more like his preppy, Republican character in *St. Elmo's Fire,* which coincidentally was his follow-up movie released just four months after *Breakfast Club.*

      @Cathleen Marie Yes but the way he enunciates and also stresses some of the words is exactly how John does it in the movie. So he either really talks like that in RL or he was somewhat still in character her.

    Hello Precious One,
    God loves you and desires for you to spend eternity with Him. However, SIN has seperated you from God and from entering Heaven. That is why God sent His Son Jesus Christ to save you. You can not get to Heaven on your own accord...You Need Jesus!
    👉 Go to Jesus Christ with a repentant & humble heart.
    Jesus Christ, I come to you a sinner, I repent of all my sins and ask for your forgiveness. I believe you are the Son of God, that you went to the cross, died in my place, paying my sin debt and that you were buried & rose on the 3rd day to everlasting life. Jesus, right now, I choose to receive you as my Lord and my Savior, trusting in you alone for my salvation. I surrender my life to you and ask for your will to be done. I invite your Holy Spirit to come into my heart to make me more like you. Thank you for your forgiveness. Thank you for filling me with the Holy Spirit and for your gift of eternal life in Heaven. Amen!
    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
    1) For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God - Romans 3:23
    2) For the wages of sin is death, but the GIFT OF GOD is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord - Romans 6:23
    3) ♡ TRUTH... God made Jesus Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ - 2 Corinthians 5:21
    4) ♡ THE GOSPEL...Jesus Christ, God the Son, went to the cross, Died in your place, Paying your sin debt...He was buried & rose on the 3rd day to everlasting life.
    WARNING... Whoever BELIEVES in the Son (Jesus Christ) has eternal life, but whoever REJECTS the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on them - John 3:36
