This 21st-century retread of The Breakfast Club lacks the smarts and maturity of its predecessor. Like the 1985 classic, each main character offers a different stereotype, some of which are reused here, showing a lack of original thought. There remains the Princess, the Brain and the Kook. However, the Overweight Loser and Everyone’s Friend are also introduced, for fear of total copying. Instead of being confined to a high school library for a weekend of detention, the parent-free tweeners are confined to an airport for an extended layover due to a blizzard on Christmas Eve. Unlike John Hughes’ 1984 hit, Unaccompanied Minors offers no intellectual insight or compelling character development. The team of writers involved in director Paul Feig’s slapstick comedy achieve only clichés of juvenile pandemonium and utter nonsense.
