No. 2: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

No. 1: The Breakfast Club

There’s no greater school classic than The Breakfast Club. When a bunch of kids are forced to stay in school for detention on a Saturday, they learn a lot from each other about what it’s like to be a nerd, a jock, a socialite, a misfit and a liar, and have fun doing it!

I love the book. I can't wait to see the movie. Rumor has it that Drake Bell will be playing Colin Singleton. I WAS ANNOUNCED that Ansel Elgort will be playing the role of Chase. Honestly, I love Ansel Elgort because he is a great actor, but I don't know if he will be able to play Chase,. Chase is NOTHING LIKE ANSEL!!!
