Ferris Bueller has my vote
When I think of 80s movie, I only think of those cheesy classics. No Moonstruck or whatever.
Better Off Dead is a favorite. Say Anything, Heathers, the list goes on and on...
I'm with bradford on Fast Times. None of the others come close as a film with everything - intentional comedy, unintentional comedy, pop-culture references, cultural commentary, occasional drama, etc. Every scene in Fast Times is good.
The John Hughes movies are great, but don't approach Fast Times.
My chronological/cultural line of demarcation for the 80s, though, is Back to the Future.
More great 80s films:
Raging Bull (though technically a 70s film since it was released in 80)
Born on the Fourth of July
Reversal of Fortune
Unmentioned thusfar, The Breakfast Club
I vote Breakfast club too
but wait...here's the best:
and a close runner up:
Raising Arizona: I find that I can almost pick my friends based on this film.
It's like looking in on some kind of strange alien world.
Whatta we get for $10? Anything. Anything you want. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093058/quotes Best 80's movie? Gotta be Up the Creek. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088333/ Or Blue Thunder
Commando (best Arnie film hands-down)
Better off Dead (Cusak's finest)
Gandhi (had to throw in some culture)
I guess we're friends.
Big Trouble In Little China
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade
uh.... Rocky 2?
Caddyshack - 1980.
You ever make $14 the hard way?
Close second...Raiders of the Lost Ark
(like I'm gonna vote for anything else.)
