      Die Hard and Trading Places.Plus he had guest roles on shit like Miami Vice, Dallas, and The A-Team. He’s definitely “Mr. 80’s”, anon.

        I'm not trying to knock him at all, but are you fricking stupid? Eddie Murphy was bigger in the 80's than him. Michael J. Fox too. Paul Gleason is not "Mr. 80's" even in the slightest sense.

          Eddie Murphy & Michael J. Fox had careers after the 80’s, dipshit. “Mr 80’s” in terms of his entire Hollywood run pretty much starts and ends in one decade. Don’t fricking reply to me again until you can read

            I swear this place gets dumber and dumber. The pure anger that comes out from people because they get called out on their stupid behavior is like most of you live a unfulfilling shitty life. Do you get this upset over everything? And you're still going with he's "Mr. 80's" when I could name more actors that had a bigger presence in the 80's than him? No career in the 90's, just the 80's.

      >another, “name (insert number here) other movies,” moron post.

      All I can remember him in is Trading Places. It does not alter the fact he was a ubiquitous actor. Looks at Margot Robbie. I can only name 3 movies she’s in and she’s active and ubiquitous right now you fat pontificating moron! I would add Sam Jackson to the list, too.

        You're taking what I said completely out of the context. OP says he is in seemingly every big 80's movie. But I can think of 10 HUGE 80's movies and he's nowhere to be seen. So I wanted to call OP's bluff, name just 4 movies. And he didn't. And then you come along with a stick up your ass butting in when you have no idea what I'm asking. You think you do. But you don't. Because you're not me. So frick off, homosexual.

    John C. McGinley would fit this criteria.

    The only movie I remember him being in was Trading Places. Looking at his IMDB page, he seems to have played tons of bit roles before the movie and tons of bit roles after the movie. It doesn't seem that 'The Breakfast Club' had any impact on his career.

    Vernon did nothing wrong. Bender was a little punk while Vernon was a homeowner and all-around swell guy.

      I hated Bender. He had an issue with authority and should have been expelled. He was not a cool dude. He was a budding sociopath. Principal Vernon was right to try to instill discipline in him.

      He was kind of a homosexualy coward tho. He wanted to instigate a fight with Bender so he could have him arrested

      It's an age old question: can/should Vernon rehabilitate Bender or just identify him as a future reject and get him sequestered ASAP.
      same shit with the prison population: can you fix these people or acknowledge they are beyond fixing.

        Depends on if you go by what we see in the movie or by what was in the director's head. In the movie, Bender is an butthole who generally lacks empathy, both likely due to his shitty home life. He sometimes shows vulnerability and does take one for the team when he leads Vernon away from the rest of the gang when they were breaking the rules. He's also a menace to general school operations and a disruption to those trying to learn. Alternative schools weren't very widespread in the 1980s but that would have been the best option had it been available to get him to be at least a minimally functional member of society.
        John Hughes' head canon was that Bender was on a path to becoming a career criminal and ending up dead due to criminal activities. For him the best solution would have been to expel Bender and let the juvenile court system handle him.

          What do you think would've been the best solution to/for Bender?
          Do the Heavens of Suburban Chicago have a rehabilitation program for delinquent pupils?
