Breakfast club

  1. I know, I know. This is a stupid thread, but I couldn't find the answer anywhere so...

    In the movie "The Breakfast Club" does the "criminal" have a first name? He seems to just be referred to as Bender throught the movie. I need to know for a school paper so any help would be great. thanks

    Where did you look? Todays newspaper? :D

    I typed "The Breakfast Club Bender" into my favorite search engine, and the first result had the answer you silly rabbit. Admit it, you are an attention whore. :)

  4. Actually, I watched the movie and didn't see it...

    I might be one kind of whore, but attention isn't it.

  5. His name is "John Bender", as others noted.

    I do like that movie though.

    Dad says , as he gives him a carton of smokes for Xmas

    " smoke up johnny!"
  7. Ahh, I thought that "Johnny" in reference to the carton of cigarettes was just an expresion, because john is a generic male name. it makes more sense now

    That was such a great movie.
    I thought it was hilarious when they all got high.
    It was also pretty funny when Claire showed them her trick.

    His name is also mentioned when Mr. Vernon says,

    "You think he's funny? You think this is cute? You think he's "bitchin," is that it? Let me tell you something. Look at him - he's a bum. You want to see something funny? You go visit John Bender in five years. You'll see how g**damned funny he is. "

    That movie was the shiznit back in the day. Me and another guy rewrote it as a screenplay for the high school one-act play. I used to know every stinkin' word in that movie.

    Does it drive anyone else insane that there is never a punchline? I so wish I knew what it was after all this time lol.
