Night Shift (1982)
Night Shift is a classic story about a meek morgue operator that opens up a prostitution ring during, you guessed it, the night shift. It’s a classic rags-to-riches story… or, pushover-to-pimp.
The Breakfast Club (1985)
This one really speaks for itself. The Breakfast Club is an 80s classic that makes it feel okay to be a teenager, and has inspired millions worldwide to try and apply lipstick with their boobs.
The Jerk (1979)
The Jerk is a movie that will make you feel better about all the things you don’t have in life, and appreciate the things you do. Steve Martin nails it as a dim, quirky, southern boy who leaves home to find himself (and a lot of money, along the way!)
Pretty In Pink (1986)
A lot of people are going to tell you Pretty In Pink is about a girl and a boy and their unlikely romance–but actually, it’s a fun little story about a boy named Ducky learning to get over being friend-zoned by his crush.
Weird Science (1985)
Weird Science is the original party flick all about nerds, redemption, magic, and a badass lady named Lisa. If Lisa is not already your #1 girl crush, you’re either lying or have never seen this movie.
Back to the Future (1985)
Remember when we were kids, and wondered what we would be like when Marty went to the future? Well, that was last year. If only we could be like this movie, which literally never gets old.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)
Did you know this movie was from the eighties?? Yeah, don’t think about it too much. Bonus Fact: Matthew Broderick never wore those ray bans you see on the poster. He took photos without them on and they were edited in!
Dirty Dancing (1987)
This movie has been keeping baby out of the corner for years, and we’re certainly not stopping now!
You don’t need to hide it anymore, Grease is a great movie. We all love Grease. Even if you’re not a music person, John Travolta in his prime is enough to put aside all prejudices and have some summer lovin.
When Harry Met Sally (1989)
When Harry Met Sally is a timeless tale of swallowing your feelings to maintain a friendship. Heartfelt and sweet, this movie can make you rethink all your relationships and wonder whether you’re laughing or crying. At that sandwich scene, you might do a little bit of both.
