So, I feel like John Hughes ran out of script. He realized he’d already had a big dance scene, an emotional meltdown and a steamy makeout session. But lo and behold! He forgot to include the makeover, which you CAN'T NOT DO IN A TEEN MOVIE!
Hence Sheedy’s goth-y character gets scrubbed with pastels and served up to a jock. IRL Sheedy probably would’ve been dating some slinkster punk rock dude from a Francesca Lia Block novel. I always feel betrayed at the end of this movie, and I’m not alone. There's a Facebook group called Allison's makeover at the end of the Breakfast Club is bull s**t. Allison, who we thought might be a strong female character, leaves us with crazy “Do you love me?” eyes. Disappointing.
