Reviews for The Breakfast Club

Review - Breakfast Club, The

Intriguing, but my major issue is the way parents are portrayed. True, many parents put pressure on their kids to perform, but that's part of the role of parents. It can be overdone, but it can't be done away with. And there are parents who are doing a good job and who get along with their teens much of the time. The teen years aren't easy, but they're not torture for everyone.
