Common Sense Media: Best Back-to-School Movies

'The Breakfast Club' (1985)

Ages: 14+

Synopsis: Socially relevant '80s teen flick.

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this film deals with themes that may be inappropriate for younger teens. Topics such as suicide, depression, social alienation, materialism, sex, and parental physical and emotional abuse are discussed openly. Main characters use very strong language, smoke pot on screen in the school library, and mock authority figures. One smokes cigarettes, draws a switchblade, and makes lewd gestures. He reveals cigar burns on his body as evidence of his father's abuse. The film does positively encourage the breakdown of social barriers as a means of identification and improved communication. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Universal)
