The Breakfast Club
I watched this as a tribute to its director, John Hughes, who died on 6th August.
It might not be high art, but it’s one of my favourite films and has a great cast – Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall, Paul Gleason and Molly Ringwald in particular – and some wonderful scenes.
Very Bad Things
Actor Peter Berg tackles directing rather well in this black comedy about a group of friends who get into trouble whilst on a stag in Vegas. Jon Favreau, Christian Slater, Jeremy Piven, Daniel Stern and Leland Orser make a good unit, and Cameron Diaz is a thoroughly believable bridezilla.
