The Brat Pack is a nickname given to a group of young actors who frequently appeared together in teen-oriented coming-of-age films in the 1980s. The term was first mentioned in a 1985 New York magazine article (the term "Brat Pack" is a play on the Rat Pack from the 1950s and 1960s). The actors themselves were known to dislike the label. Many of their careers peaked in the middle of the 1980s, but declined afterwards for various reasons.
