It feels weird, but it's true! The coming of age/study in social status movie Pretty in Pink with Molly Ringwald as Andie along with 'Duckie' and Blane turned 32-years-old this week and it got me to thinking about my favorite movies from the 80's... Let's see if we agree!

Here are my favorites in no particular order!

  • 1

    Can't Buy Me Love

    Seriously, who can forget Patrick Dempsey circa 1987?

  • 2

    Top Gun

    The summer of 1986 was magical! My friend Rebekah and I wore out the VCR watching the volleyball scene over and over and over again!

  • 3

    The Breakfast Club

    The Breakfast Club is the quintessential movie of the 80's. Seriously, you can't have a list without including it!

  • 4

    E.T.

    I never had a Skittle until watching E.T. in 1982. I like them... and the movie even though it scared me!

  • 5

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off

    Ferris Bueller was the modern day version of Huckleberry Finn in 1986. His exploits are still legendary!

  • 6

    Say Anthing

    Seriously, is there anything more tragic and romantic as John Cusack serenading Ione Skye with a boombox?

  • 7

    St. Elmo's Fire

    I thought I was going to be a lawyer after watching this movie... I also thought I was going to marry Rob Lowe.

  • 8

    The Goonies

    Baby Ruth!!! Who can forget Josh Brolin pre-arrest in downtown Shreveport?

  • 9

    Gremlins

    My second favorite stuffed animal growing up was Gizmo... He was super cool, but he couldn't replace my beloved unicorn!

  • 10

    Beetlejuice

    Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! I can't believe I was brave enough to type that three times in a row... Although I read it in my head, not out loud!
