I agree with all of them, LOL, sixteen candles and fast times being my favorites. You forgot, "the goonies" And "Somekind of wonderful." let's not forget my least favorite. "Blue Lagoon." Do you remember "the last american virgin?" Some do and some don't. It was a typical guy trying to get laid film of the Porkeys genre, but I loved it. A bit later movie, I think 90 was Dazed and Confused. Great film. My favorite films are those that I call, "Day in the life of..." sort of movies. Ferris Bueller's day off is another. It might not be just a day, but its a total teen experience and I can soooo relate. OK, you have my 80[s memories jumping. Come back to us, John Hughes. My kids will never know the movies that I knew.

Stand by me, was another good one. I may have to revisit this response as my memory hits me. Pushing 40 is a great nostalgic age. LOL

Well you definatly hit most of them. I suppose any movie involving the Brat Pack would be a cheesy 80's movie, including St Elomo's Fire. But don't forget Goonies, Stand By Me and Gremlins. Who can ever forget those lovable yet oh so dangerous little creatures.

St. Elmo's Fire, cheesy? Awww I loved it. But I guess it was cheesy. Most 80's movies, looking back, were though.

They Live - Roddy Piper stars in THEY LIVE. Corny but he tried.
LOL, I like many of the movies above despite the cheese factor. Some others I watched and are kind of cheesy or very cheesy are: Beetlejuice (Silly but I liked it!) The Fly (oh brother...) Big (Tom Hanks is a kid. Corny. And I liked it. lol.) Eddie and the Cruisers (OK, so I liked that one then too!) Revenge of the Nerds (Oh, awful stuff.) Heathers (ACK!) Vacation (Cheesy on purpose!) Night Shift (Henry Winkler and Michael Keaton work in a morgue. SO cheesy!) Caddyshack (ergh) Police Academy (Ugh.) Desperately Seeking Susan (Yuck) I think Rocky III and IV were made in the 80's and I like Rocky movies but they were getting really cheesy by then. Stayin Alive (Not up to snuff with Saturday Night Fever) One of my favorite movies is really cheesy - Urban Cowboy And the winner for the cheesiest movie of the 80's that didn't mean to be corny or cheesy but just was for me (and I worked with the star a few years later) is... THEY LIVE. Ugh. (Sorry Roddy!)

I really loved the Porky's series, those movies were so funny! How about Airplane...("I am seriously, and please don't call me Shirley")? I also loved The Breakfast Club, in fact I think I appreciate it more now than I did when it came out. I guess I found it hard to take a film seriously that my daughter just loved! About Last Night and St. Elmo's Fire were also my favorites. Thanks for bringing back some great memories of my younger years. Annie
