Theme: Breaking down stereotypes. Still an important them today – don’t judge people until you get to know them!
All the kids are white. They represent the “The socially apathetic, cynical, money-possessed and ideologically barren eighties generation.”
Their layers of clothes are shed during the movie as are the barriers they put up between one another.
Andrew: We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all.
Richard Vernon: Don’t mess with the bull, young man. You’ll get the horns.
All the actors who appeared in Breakfast Club and St. Elmo’s Fire – add Demi Moore, Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy.
