Four of the five stars of the 80s hit film, 'The Breakfast Club,' reunited Monday in New York in commemoration of the movie's director, John Hughes, who died last year.

Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy joined in the event; Emilio Estevez was absent. The five played dissimilar characters in the cult classic, united in the film to form a "breakfast club" of students punished by a detention day on Saturday.

The movie became a hit because the characters resonated with legions of baby boomers who attended high school during the 70s.

Sheedy said Hughes "put different parts of himself into all the different characters. He was brutally open and honest so I think all those things are in the movie. Teenagers were treated with such respect in this movie."
