Society is always trying in some way or other to grind teenagers down to a demeaning surface. Unfortunately, this stereotype may never change. The Breakfast Club written and directed by John Hughes expresses exactly that theme. Fortunately, youth of every age understand exactly what they are going through and have the ability to change what is being thrust on them by the socialization process which begins in the home and is reinforced at school, not only by students and parents, but teachers like Mr. Vernon as well. In The Breakfast Club five unique personalities, each secure in his identity and yet filled with insecurities, spend a lazy Saturday confined to Detention at Shermer High School in Shermer, Illinois, for various and school violations. Yet each character has a troubled life as foreshadowed by his very presence in detention. Families mold, intentionally or not, their children into little reflections of themselves.

John Bender, the criminal, as depicted by Judd Nelson, the leader of the notorious Hollywood Brat Pack. John is the main character in the movie and functions as the
