Does anyone else think that Ally Sheedy looked better before the makeover? In addition to telling goth girls they can’t get love until they conform, The Breakfast Club pairs up Judd Nelson and Molly Ringwald because The Law of Economy of Characters says so. Yet Nelson has done nothing but insult Ringwald and emotionally abuse her for the film’s duration, berating her for being a spoiled princess. Girls, this is how a guy shows he loves you. Screw flowers. You should fall for an asshole.
