Buoyed by brilliant performances, a sharp script and direction from Hughes and that Simple Minds track, this is a film we return to again and again. But what happened to its stars? We go then and now with the cast to find out what happened to the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess and the criminal.

A staple of John Hughes movies in the '80s, Hall brought endearing geeky charm to National Lampoon's Vacation, Sixteen Candles and Weird Science.
As he grew out of child star roles, Hall sought to shed his established screen persona with a diverse selection of character parts across film and TV. His roles in the '90s were something of a mixed bag, although he impressed playing Bill Gates (ironically, the ultimate geek!) in 1999's Pirates of Silicon Valley.
His career really took off, however, thanks to his five-year stint leading the TV adaptation of Stephen King's Dead Zone. Since then, we've seen him crop up in The Dark Knight, Community and the Oscar-nominated Foxcatcher.
The eldest son of Martin Sheen, Emilio Estevez was one of the hottest stars of the '80s. The Outsiders, Repo Man, The Breakfast Club, St Elmo's Fire, Young Guns... all absolute classics!
Often vying with his brother Charlie Sheen for similar roles, Estevez won our hearts in the '90s thanks to his role as Coach Bombay in the Mighty Ducks movies. He was also offed in the opening sequence of Mission: Impossible and guested with Charlie in Two and a Half Men.
More recently, he's turned to directing, assembling an all-star cast for Bobby and steering his dad Martin in 2010's The Way. He's currently at work filming new drama The Public, which centres on the inhabitants of the Los Angeles Public Library.

After Ally Sheedy's breakthrough in 1983's Bad Boys followed by WarGames (1983), the actress established herself as part of the Brat Pack and went on to appear in St Elmo's Fire (1985) with fellow Brat Packers Emilio Estevez and Rob Lowe.
Sheedy appeared in cult comic science fiction movie Short Circuit with Steve Guttenberg, and also became known for her role in indie hit High Art (1998).
The actress later featured in the USA Network's crime comedy TV series Psych for four years from 2009, and short-lived CBS US soap opera Full Circle in 2013.
