The Breakfast Club (1985)

Five high school students meet in Saturday detention and discover how they have a lot more in common than they thought. 
Unusual teenage drama staged as a one-room ensemble play; some moments are silly and unnerving (they're teens, after all), but otherwise a quite impressive movie.
Halliwell (no star): "Abysmal apologia for loutish teenage behaviour."
Maltin**1/2: "A bold experiment in the era of teen raunch movies (written and directed by a man who's made more than his share)...Alternately poignant, predictable, and self-important, but filled with moments of truth and perception."
