Molly Ringwald Reexamines John Hughes' 'Inappropriate' Writing & Her Old Films In The #MeToo Era

'The Breakfast Club' had some rough moments.

John Hughes captured the voice of a generation with his beloved '80s movies. But as many have pointed out since, the filmmaker's classics can be problematic when examined under a modern lens.

Even Molly Ringwald, Hughes' former collaborator and long-time muse, had trouble rewatching The Breakfast Club with her 10-year-old daughter in an effort to see how her old films held up with today's young generation.

Spoiler alert: between the creepy shot of her character Claire's underwear to the fact that Claire ends up with John Bender (Judd Nelson) after enduring nothing but verbal abuse, it was a hard watch.

The industry vet's issues were detailed an op-ed for the New Yorker, in which she admitted that while Hughes' writing contained a previously unseen sensitivity and angst, it "could also be considered racist, misogynistic, and, at times, homophobic."

Ringwald also dissected one scene from Sixteen Candles that joked about non-consensual sex. While the scene left a bad taste in her mouth, the actress who played the potentially violated character, interestingly enough, felt okay with it.
