10 Fictional Dates from Movies Everyone Should Know

  • March 24, 1984 (The Breakfast Club)

    On this fateful day, a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal served detention, and teen films were never the same.

  • April 25 (Miss Congeniality)

    Honestly, Miss Rhode Island isn’t wrong.

  • July 4, 1996 (Independence Day)

    “Perhaps, it’s fate today is the fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom.” Independence Day is so delightfully over the top, and this scene below perfectly encapsulates its melodrama.

  • August 29, 1997 (Terminator 2: Judgement Day)

    “On August 29, 1997, it’s gonna feel pretty f—ing real to you too!” A very dark scene, but on the plus side, there wasn’t an apocalypse in reality. So, yay?
