Favorite 80's Movies

Totally inspired by a thread on 2Peas. Here is a list of my favorite 80's movies:

Sixteen Candles
The Breakfast Club
Poltergeist (don't ask me why - still creeps me out but I LOVE that movie!)
Top Gun
Uncle Buck
Vacation (Both regular & European)
Steel Magnolias
Pretty in Pink
The Little Mermaid
For Keeps
Rocky IV (Yes - I was about 9 when he fought the Russian and I STILL love it!)
Dirty Dancing
ET
A Christmas Story
Planes, Trains and Automobiles
Revenge of the Nerds

I'm sure there are a bunch that I've forgot but I'll remember them eventually. I just pretty much love 80's movies. Could watch them over and over! :D

My husband and I were dating in the 80's and when "Breakfast Club" came out, the name "Claire" caught my attention (and his although he says he doesn't remember as it was years ago and we were in our teens) but anyway, we named our second daughter "Claire" and she's "2" now.

"Fast Times At Ridgemont High" (the food court scenes) was filmed at Sherman Oaks Galleria in Sherman Oaks, California...down the street where I work. It's all changed now and doesn't look a thing like it used to back then)

Love "Valley Girl" too with Nicolas Cage
