10 Back-to-School Movies for Parents

Who says only kids get excited about returning to school? Indulge your inner child with these 10 nostalgic back-to-school movie classics.

The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club

Rated: R

Year: 1985

Cast: Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy

Attention, detention! A jock, a nerd, a punk, a princess, and a Goth chick report for detention on a Saturday in the high school library, and unexpectedly find common ground. Out of all the John Hughes movies, this one shows the secret, emotional life of teens -- and why every one feels like an outcast at one time or another.

What Parents Like: Everyone can relate to at least one stereotype, and sometimes the dialogue has the rawness of a group therapy session.

What Makes Our Inner Kid Squeal: Opposites attract, especially after a lot of painful, awkward staring and trading insults, of course.
