    Breakfast club, john bender psychotic asshole, or the voice of reason in the movie

    Anyone else think that the movie would have sucked balls if their was no John Bender. The question I often wonder is does John Bender come off as a complete asshole, or a necessity for personal growth. If someone doesn't question something it doesn't get re-examined. John Bender is probably the most honest, and blunt and without him no one would have learned shit all really. I'm going with a little of both, but lets face it he's the only reason we get to know the others.

    I thought he was a fascinating character. He was among the first to reveal his hidden vulnerability. The characters all followed the same pattern, breaking down at some point, with each leading one of the others to do the same through a revelatory conflict that led to increased openness and connection. The only thing I disliked about the ending was that, while each left with a mate except for the nerd, who was in love with his own sense of sacrificial competence, the crazy girl was only considered desirable after being recreated in the image of the popular girl, despite the jock's earlier protest that all girls were teases. He only noticed the exception who disproved his false impression after she was reformed to fit it.

    I'd agree too, Bender held it together. All of them were important for balance, but it wouldn't have happened without him. He got things moving, he was the instigator. They all grew a lot, but he did the most and revealed the most I felt.

    By the way, what type was he?

    He acts it, but I'm concerned if his in that, and he's not an ENFP or something else.

    He mentions that he likes his shop class, which seems kind of S. He also seems more grounded in reality than an intuitive who would focus more on what could be than on what is. He uses his physical presence as an intimidating force rather than relying primarily on rational arguments. He speaks his mind regardless of how it makes others feel, which makes me think he is a T. He is bold and outspoken like an E. He is rebellious and stirs the pot like an E_TP. I'm almost certain he's an ESTP.

    Yeah, I just wanted to entertain other possibilities, but you're probably right. ESTP.

    What about the teacher in the film? He was more realistic than Bender. Good mix of characters. OK film.Ally Sheedy and Molly Ringwald looked nice

    The worst aspect was that it seemed to blame everything on the parents!

    I don't know about realistic. He was certainly a parody of a lot of the things that are wrong with teachers. With every parody their is a hint of truth. But as for the movie it needed bender nearly every other character could have been taken or changed. Their would have been no movie, no conflict, it would have been a bunch of kids sitting in detention. The only reason we got to even remotely know these kids is because of bender. As for the parents thing don't nearly all kids blame their parents for stuff. It didn't blame the parents it showed that when your that age you have a tendency too.
