[[WMG: Bender grows up to become [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga The Joker]]]]
Both seem to enjoy pushing people over the edge. Both are outsiders. Both carry a hatred for authority figures. Bender's father beats him, and one of the Joker's stories for his scars involve an alcoholic father. The Breakfast Club is set in Sherman Illinois, which is not too far from Chicago, which is what the The Dark Knight Saga's Gotham is supposedly based on. Perhaps after graduation, Bender suffers some sort of traumatic accident that leaves him scarred physically and drives him to insanity.

* Maybe she just wanted to spend Saturday ''at the library'', only the public library was closed that weekend. She'd have spent the whole day reading if her fellow detention-ees hadn't proven so interesting to watch and provoke.

[[WMG: The ending of the movie is about the teenagers gaining the strength to call out their parents for their mistreatment of them.]]

Firstly, we know that Bender already calls out his parents, and that since by the end of the movie he doesn't seem so isolated anymore what with having friends who actually understand him, this should further embolden him. Let's go through each of the teenagers.

Claire: This actually gets spelt out by Bender near the end of the movie when he and Claire are in the closet together, when he asks her "You know how you said before how your parents use you to get back at each other? Wouldn't I be outstanding in that capacity?" Cut to the very last scene, and Bender and Claire passionately kiss each other right in front of Claire's dad's car before she leaves. It seems that Bender may well have ended up helping Claire achieve exactly that.

Allison: This is actually the next easiest character to figure out. Her complaint is about how her parents ignore her. By the end of the movie, she's had a makeover, and ends up kissing a popular school sports star before she leaves, which is almost certainly going to be near impossible for her parents to ignore.

Brian: Has contemplated suicide due to bad grades, and at the beginning of the movie we're shown that his parents seem to display no sympathy for his plight and continue to pressure him to study. By the end of the movie, he has the balls to pen a letter on behalf of the group to the school principal calling him out on his condescension towards the teenagers in detention. This should set him up nicely for calling out his parents for their pressure and uncaring attitude towards his suicidal feelings.

Andy: Hates having become the Jerk Jock because of his father's expectations of him. Opening himself up to the others gives him more confidence as does kissing Allison at the end, and when he gets in his dad's car, his face clearly demonstrates he's not going to take his dad's crap anymore.

That leaves on Andy and John. Neither of them outright say, but considering that Andy is a popular boy jock and Bender is a criminal bad-ass, it isn't unlikely

* Well, Bender has a whole bunch of pictures of girls in his wallet, which he states some he considers hanging out with and some his girlfriends.

Or possibly half sister. We never see Cameron or Allison's family, and Cameron's dad doesn't seem like the most loyal man, so he could've knocked another woman up, or Cameron's mom had her with another man. Both are weird and don't seem to be the most popular in school. Their home lives are both unsatisfactory, and the way Ferris describes Cameron's house (Like a museum, you can't touch anything and it's cold) was a deleted line from TheBreakfastClub describing Allison's house.

[[WMG: Allison has [[UsefulNotes/AspergerSyndrome Asperger's Syndrome]] .]]
I am an Aspie (I was diagnosed by professionals), and Allison is my favorite character. I see a lot of myself in her, especially her reason for being in detention [[spoiler:she had nothing better to do]].


The characters exist in the DCComics universe. They have died, and the entire movie is them gradually passing over and coming to terms with their own deaths. Alternatively, they were all alive and actually in detention, up until the janitor arrived, went nuts and killed the kids (he obviously hates them). Allison is in fact Death of the Endless, acting in her role as a psychopomp.

* It could work if they were forced to surrender their phones to the Principal (Like in the {{Victorious}} parody) or the school's computers were shut down for the weekend. Some schools don't allow kids to bring their tablets or laptops to detention either.
