In a counterpart to Five Easy Pieces (ahead), Michael Douglas’ vain attempt to order breakfast in a fast-food restaurant that just shifted to lunch three minutes ago is another episode of an anti-hero rebelling against arbitrary authority. But unlike Jack Nicholson’s Bobby Dupea, a contemporary man reacting against a world mired in the past, Douglas’ nameless drone is a man of the past (a white male with a 1950s crew cut and a defense-industry career) who’s been left behind in a fast-moving world of ethnic and gender diversity, a world that moves fast and stops serving breakfast at 11:30. Of course, the Douglas character’s ballistic response, part of a day-long rampage against modernity, is a behavioral and legal no-no, but in Joel Schumacher’s provocative, button-pushing movie, his Whammyburger flip-out is awfully cathartic. Even if you’re not an older white guy left confused by modern life, you’ve still probably felt the urge to go postal in a fast-food joint that won’t actually let you have it your way.

The list is not very accurate to me! Not in terms of great films,
but, almost more to depict "memorable" breakfast scenes, as memorable
meant " exploited" or "exploitative"!
One of the best breakfast scenes in movies ever in fact is completely missing!
talking about Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable's very personal moment in
memorable (Oh yes, that definitely was memorable!) United Artist's John
Huston's production of "The Misfits" (1961) written by Arthur Miller,
and, certainly featuring some of the most authentic acting ever,
especially, from its 3 protagonist's : Monroe, Gable, and Monty Clift.
A travesty that this list doesn't include Fast Times at Ridgemont High's Brad Hamilton getting fired from All American Burger!
