    The Brat Pack was a group of actors in the 80s. I remember it was mainly the actors in The Breakfast Club. Members, if I recall correctly included Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy, and Andrew McCarthy. They were in movies like 16 Candles and Breakfast Club, etc.

    For some reason I keep thinking Sean Penn was part of it too, but maybe he was more of a sometime member.

    It was never a formal group, but it was a name given to them by a movie reviewer, since they appeared in so many things together.
