Continuity mistake: When Vernon is in the basement files and Carl walks in, the card in the drawer is tilted and it stays this way for a few shots. In the next shot, the card is straight, but in the shot after that, it is tilted again.

Continuity mistake: Various times throughout the movie, Judd Nelson is wearing the diamond ear ring Molly Ringwald gives to him when her parent picks her up from detention at the end. It is very different than the lightening bolt earring, so there's no way to confuse them.

Andrew: We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all.

Brian Johnson: Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain...
Andrew Clark:...and an athlete...
Allison Reynolds:...and a basket case...
Claire Standish:...a princess...
John Bender:...and a criminal...
Brian Johnson: Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.

Question: I realise that a lot of US schools look similar but would this be the same school used in Ferris Bueller's Day Off (by the same director)?

Phil Watts

Chosen answer: According to the IMDB, the answer is yes. Both movies used the same two high school locations: Glenbrook North High School, Northbrook, Illinois; and Maine North High School, Des Plaines, Illinois. The director, John Hughes, directed both movies and decided to use the same school. He also uses the name Shermer for the name of the high school in Breakfast Club and for the name of the suburb in which the Bueller's live.

Question: Why is it that in the scene where Bender is in the gym, he has a sneaker and boot on, but when he gets back to the library, he has replaced it with his boot? Was there a deleted scene where he loses his shoe or something? It just does not make sense that he would somehow find 1 sneaker, decide to wear it, then kick it off on his way back.

Chosen answer: Bender found the shoe in the gym, and decided to wear it. When the principal kicked the basketball, Bender jumped out of the shoe. He left with his boot, and was wearing it when he arrived at the library.

Question: You can't have a gun in school, but you can put a guillotine in your locker?

Chosen answer: It was a flare gun. I very much doubt that this is something that the faculty are aware of. Brian was obviously caught with the flare gun because it went off in his locker, whereas Bender has not been caught with the guillotine in his locker.
