Have you ever wondered whatever happened to the Jock, the Brain, the Criminal, the Princess and the Basket Case? To be honest, I wouldn’t mind seeing a sequel to any of John Hughes’ movies, but I would love to know what happened to the Breakfast Club. John Hughes is no longer with us, and we’ll probably never see a sequel to this classic, but if there was a movie, here’s how I imagine the characters have spent the last few decades…
It’s 2014, and the former students have returned to Shermer High School for their 30th reunion. During the event, by sheer coincidence, they each find themselves in the library at the same point of the evening, where they tell each other’s stories and the ugliest truths of their lives are revealed.
“The Dinner Club” would be more serious in tone than the original, more of a black comedy, but life tends to get a little more serious when you get older. Man, writing this blog post made me really feel my age. What do you think happened to the Club?
This is the latest post in response to the weekly blog challenge presented by the League of Extraordinary Bloggers. This week’s topic asked what 80’s movie you would like to have a sequel filmed today, where the actors have aged the same as you and me. Check out what the rest of the League chose to write about this week.

The Dinner Club, nice touch!
“Principal Vernon passed away in a freak accident in Pamplona, Spain.”
Let me guess…he got the horns? LOL
Yep, he messed with the bull. 😉
I call copyright infringement! 🙂 (kidding, of course) Well done!
Wouldn’t it be great if Hollywood could actually pull off a successful sequel to this movie. It really is almost made for a “Where are they now?” treatment.
TL, I did warn you that great minds think alike. 😉

Nice, Brian. Love the title. I would agree with nearly everything you wrote, except for Andrew. I imagine him to have finished college with a degree in Phys Ed. Maybe ending up as Shermer’s coach of the wrestling team. Or just a PE coach.
Otherwise, well done.
Nice! I could definitely see that future for Andrew.

We apparently share the same brain. I’m about to send you my link to this week’s LXB post and though I ended up going with something different, I spend the first half talking about the Breakfast Club.
It wasn’t until I was a senior in High School did i learn that they smoked pot in that movie. I always watched it on regular tv so they cut that part out.
I was in awe…lol
