‘The Breakfast Club’ Met For the First Time 30 Years Ago Today

Today marks the 30th anniversary of the day - March 24, 1984 - that 'The Breakfast Club' first met: that would be the day that characters from John Hughes' beloved teen classic were all stuck in detention together. And although at first glance this group of teens had nothing in common, they bonded over the course of that special Saturday, learning that they couldn't be defined by the labels they chose for themselves (or the ones that had been chosen for them) in the world of petty high school politics.

‘The Fault in Our Stars’ Trailer: Shailene Woodley Wants to Make You Cry

The first 'Fault in Our Stars' trailer has arrived, and if you're the emotionally vulnerable type, you may want to grab some tissues. Shailene Woodley seems to be making a career out of playing adorable, down-to-earth and highly relatable high school girls who get super real with teen boys, teaching them lessons about life and love -- but, like, in a really genuine, sweet, and heartbreaking way. It's like 'The Spectacular Now,' but replace alcoholism with terminal illness.

See the Cast of ‘Scrooged’ Then and Now

Released in 1988, 'Scrooged' was a darkly comedic take on Charles Dickens' classic 'A Christmas Carol,' starring Bill Murray in the Ebenezer Scrooge role as Frank Cross, a cynical TV executive alienated from his family and unable to find real happiness. Struggling to put together a live production of 'A Christmas Carol' on Christmas Eve, Frank finds that his real life begins to resemble the story he's producing as three ghosts visit him throughout the evening to try and get him to change his ways before it's too late.

The film took Murray from battling ghosts in 'Ghostbusters' to learning lessons from them, and over time it's become a holiday comedy classic. 25 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now.
