    Talk about 6 years too late. Way to try to make money off of a long dead horse. Next up Breakfast Club: The Animated Series.

      I really don’t think it would have worked even when the movie was new, at least the way I see it. It was one of those kind of movies where the story was pretty much wrapped up in the single film and any sequels or spinoffs would have been rather pointless. But thats just how I see it, there are plenty of movies that are great (or just decent) movies because they have a story that wraps up in the single film and there isn’t any needless storyline complications, and there are great movies that made sequels or spinoffs trying to cash in that just did NOT work out at all.
