HE PRACTICALLY wrote the rule book for teen movies, yet it seems John Hughes' magnum opus of schoolyard disaffection has been sadly overshadowed by the faux-American diner to which it gave its name.
An entirely unscientific office survey suggests more people associate The Breakfast Club with the affordable London eatery than Hughes' 1985 film starring Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estefev et al.
You have the chance to right that terrible wrong next Sunday (May 12), when Hammersmith's Riverside Studios screens the comic drama alongside three of Hughes' other classics: Pretty in Pink, Planes Trains and Automobiles, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
After all, the diner may sort you out when it comes to calorific content but you'll be missing out on your RDA of teen angst.
For those of you unfamiliar with The Breakfast Club (the film), it sees Hughes throw together a collection of teen stereotypes - including the jock, the weirdo and the teen princess - for a morning of rebellion, recriminations and discovery.
While some might find the somewhat corny results hard to swallow, for me (and many other fans) it pulls off that rare trick of combining schmaltz with genuine pathos.
It may have paved the way for teen movies like American Pie and Roadtrip, but try not to hold that against it.
So, if you're a Breakfast Club virgin, or just can't get enough of the 80s, consider yourself in detention next Sunday.
Between Two Pillows - A John Hughes Special is at the Riverside Studios, in Hammersmith next Sunday, May 12. All-day tickets cost £25 and are available at www.riversidestudios.co.uk or from the box office on 020 8237 1111.
