Classic about five high school students who get detention. The Basket Case (Allison), The Athlete (Andrew), The Princess (Claire), The Criminal (Bender) and The Brain (Brian). Director John Hughes slowly unfolds lives of five stereotypes who are supposed to write essays about who they really are. Instead of writing their essays, they learn to collaborate and survive the long eight hours at school.
As the time passes, we learn what each of them did to get detention and we learn about how their parents and friends defines who they are. Film is funny, interesting and apart from a good camera work, script and characters are also very convincing and nice to watch.
