Chances are, if you’re between the ages of 28 and 35 you love 80s movies.
From “Top Gun” to “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, movies of the 80s stood out.
Sure, they were over the top and as corny as movies get.
However, they still managed to keep their entertainment value.
Molly Ringwald was without a doubt the drama queen of the 80s, at least on the big screen.
It seemed she starred in every memorable 80s dramatic flick. Starting with the dramatically humorous “Sixteen Candles”, she made a big impression.
She also played large roles in “The Breakfast Club”, “Pretty in Pink”, “The Pickup Artist” and “For Keeps”. Teen girls wanted to be her and teen boys wanted to date her, making her a super star!
Teens may not know this but McDreamy was a star long before Grey’s Anatomy was created. Patrick Dempsey was one of the most popular actors in 80s romantic comedies.
Starring in the famous “Can’t Buy Me Love” and “Loverboy”, this actor swept teen girls off their feet just as he continues to do so with women today. Known for his boyish charm and handsome looks, Dempsey was a raging star of the 80s.
Comedy was a genre the 80s endorsed fully. Movies like “A Christmas Story” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” are still watched millions of times each year.
However, the most notable comedies of the 80s included the “National Lampoon” series. Chevy Chase was in his prime and the beginning of this hilarious series still continues to be rivaled today.
