We've only got 1 question for you: Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe? Join your favourite Transatlantic podcasting duo - Ian & Liam - to review what has been called the quintessential film of the 1980s and the birth of the modern teen movie genre, The Breakfast Club on the 35th anniversary of its UK release. We're joined once again by our permaguests, Ellie & Georgia to discuss a movie that we hold near and dear to our hearts and view it again through a 2020 lens, which proves to be somewhat problematic.  Join us as we discuss:

  • The distinctions between this film and John Hughes' other masterpiece: Ferris Bueller's Day Off
  • Which actors were originally offered the parts of John Bender and Allison
  • How close did we come to a thick-bearded Russian janitor
  • What lock-picking skills did Clare, The Princess, have to have to visit a fellow Breakfast Clubber
  • How much is $31,000 USD in today's economy
  • Does Emilio Estevez give the least realistic portrayal of the effects of marijuana ever?
  • If "The Breakfast Club" is the Best Film Ever?
