Five high school students - a Rebel, an Athlete, a Brain, a Princess and a Basketcase - find themselves thrown together serving a Saturday morning detention. They do not have much in common, except giving up their day, sitting in the school library, and writing an essay for the principal. At first, they argue and hate each other, but after smoking some of John's marijuana, they begin to pour their hearts out to each other. They talk about their fears, secrets, deepest emotions, and problems.

One of my Favorites!

Even though it is a bit outdated, this is an amazing movie that, while appropriate for older middle schoolers, will appeal very much to high school students. Very lovable characters, and great acting. You are guaranteed to go on a tour de force when you begin this movie.

classic, but a bit dated

This is a classic movie about high school dynamics. Funny, very well acted, and topical. I watch it with my 9th grade students each year and it strikes a chord with most of them. That said, it is a bit slow by today's fast-paced standards, and it drags in places. Also, it's too bad that smoking dope is what brings the kids together in the story. My big question for my students at the end is: How do you think these kids will react to each other when they go back to school on Monday?

The Brat Pack

Fun movie that shows how all the stereotypes in a school can work together to get through a day.
