OK book, but there just isn't much to it. It basically consists of two parts. The first part lays down the history of brat pack films by year, from 1983 to 1987. The second part has brief one or two page biographies of the key brat pack actors. The critical analysis is lightweight and arbitrary.

OK book, but there just isn't much to it. It basically consists of two parts. The first part lays down the history of brat pack films by year, from 1983 to 1987. The second part has brief one or two page biographies of the key brat pack actors. The critical analysis is lightweight and arbitrary. The author's ridiculous notion that the entire genre basically revolves around two films - Breakfast Club & St. Elmo'sFire - is argued, re-stated and emphasized repeatedly in every chapter. Great films both, yes, but it's almost as if every other brat pack film is second rate or some kind of afterthought. And the biographies do not offer much insight beyond what can be found about each of the actors on IMDB or Wikipedia. For fans of 1980s teen comedy, Brat Pack Confidential may be worth a brief leaf-through for an occasional interesting tidbit or factoid, but it's neither extensively-researched nor well-written. There isn't even a filmography. One other complaint: with such large size pages, why so much blank space in the margins and such tiny, hard-to-read text font? All in all, a lightweight.

This book is an essential read for all wanna be Brat Packers out there. It is a comprehensive guide to the quintessential films and actors of the 80's phenomena. We are transported back in time and allowed the pleasure of reliving the birth of the ultra - knowing Generation X.
The teen movie of the 1980's was in its decade undervalued yet through informative and nostalgic retrospect this book depicts the rise, development and lasting social force of the emotionally charged collaboration of movies, performers and directors, who came to define the era.
Within the first section of the book the authors present an entertaining analysis of the key components of the Brat Pack cinema, with the films chronologically examined in detail. The plots are relived, the unmistakable one liners firmly in place and the casting and directoral decisions revealed.
The second section of the book gives biographical accounts of the indiviual performers; examining their rise, their fall and their contribution to the genre.
This book is simply priceless. It is an absolute necessity; a highly entertaining, suitably reminiscent, invaluably revealing guide to unarguably some of the most enjoyable films of the 80's.
