* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Bender might come off as this to the modern viewers. While he was always intended to look like a jerk in the beginning, some acts of his jerkassery aged extremely bad. The fact that he got together with Claire at the end after a whole movie of harassing her also can be seen as more horrific than optimistic.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: ''The Breakfast Club'' is to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' what ''Film/SixteenCandles'' is to ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. A common complaint some viewers have about the film is that, in spite of its moments of levity, the film is too bleak and cynical to get emotionally invested in. In addition, there are virtually zero characters that aren't damaged or have some sort of agenda, and a popular interpretation of the ending is that the kids didn't really learn anything, and will most likely become just as bad as their parents, if not worse. The original cut of the film is possibly even darker, with Carl making soul-crushingly pessimistic predictions about the futures of the kids, further exploration of their damaged psyches and home lives, and a more downbeat tone.

* {{Narm}}: The parents we see in the opening are such over-the-top {{Hate Sink}}s that it comes off as pandering to younger audiences at best or, at worst, laughable.

* DesignatedHero: It's debatable if the Breakfast Club are the kind of group one should root for, read the AlternativeCharacterInterpretation section for more details. However if one looks at the movie closely, you'd see that John Bender is more the TokenEvilTeammate than a character we should root for.

* ValuesResonance: Despite all the dissonant issues listed above, this movie still attracts a strong fanbase to this day. There are plenty of High School teens who can easily relate to the Breakfast Club even 30 years after the movie first came out. Molly Ringwald has even pointed this out as she has told stories about how Teenage Girls have approached her and told her about how the movie was so about their generation in which Molly was rather shocked about it and has tried to tell them that the movie was more about her Generation though.

** When the gang smokes Bender's weed, Andy gets super enthusiastic and dances around the library, complete with gymnastic moves like back-flips. If that wasn't odd enough, he then slams a door and breaks all the glass in it. This is never brought up again nor does anyone shows any concern about a bunch of broken glass.

** Depending on the interpretation, Vernon could be considered this to older viewers. Taking into accound the kind of teens he has to put up with it's no wonder he turned into such a cynical individual.

*** I personally thought Brian was the nicest and the wisest of the group regardless of his stereotype, so I thought it made a lot of sense for him to write the paper.
