o many, The Breakfast Club was the coming-of-age film that premiered over 30 years ago, profiling misfit teenagers from different Los Angeles high school cliques who spent Saturday morning in detention together, before they realized their potential. The film became a massive success in pop culture at the time. Fast forward to the present, and The Breakfast Club is an entirely new bunch of colorful characters (with a look and punch-lines more like The Firm’s Nas, Foxyand AZ), marketed as “The World’s Most Dangerous Morning Show.”
