Case Studies - Movie Characters

I'm still a little unclear on the distinctions, maybe some case studies would help.

How about "The Breakfast Club" (1985), plotline per IMDB reviewer: "Five teenagers are assigned detention on a Saturday morning and afternoon. They are a jock (Emilio Estevez), a hood (Judd Nelson), a rich girl (Molly Ringwald), a geek (Anthony Michael Hall) and a basket case (Ally Sheedy)." Agreed on the terms? One of the lines I remember is the "hood" telling the "jock" (wrestler), "I wanna be just like you, get a lobotomy and some tights."

Or how about Jack Black's character Barry in "High Fidelity"? He gets the best line in the movie, IMHO. Asked by a father if the store will sell him a sappy album for a daughter (which the store does have), Barry waves the guy away while answering, "No. Go to the mall." smiley - nahnah
