Fanny packs, teased hair, Madonna, chokers and even rubber bracelets were just a few rad things that came out of the 80s. Some other major bad to the bone things to come from the 80s were these totally stellar and iconic films. Below is a list to help you get your 80s on, just in case you want to have a bodacious time warp experience or you’re just bored and home on a Saturday while all your bimbette friends party like it’s 1985. No judgment, think of all the money you will save on your one bottle of wine instead of an entry fee at a club?
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Literally one of the most popular movies of its day (and still rocking today), Matthew Broderick plays the one and only Ferris Bueller. This high school student is on a mission to have the best day of his life, by faking a sick day. From stealing his best friends father’s Ferrari to singing “twist and shout” in a parade, this movie is fun for the whole family.
If you’re not a romantic comedy kind of person and you want to see Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer in their prime, then Top Gun is your go-to. Trainee pilots at the Navy’s Elite top school, these two compete to be the best of the best.
If you are into hopeless romantic, die-hard classic films then be sure to check out Dirty Dancing. Starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey will not only make you fall in love with their epic dance moves but will also have you begging for more, after all, “No one puts Baby in the corner.”
The Breakfast Club
The movie where every student leaned “If you mess with the bull, you get the horns.” Revolving around 5 students trapped in detention on a Saturday from all tracks of life, this unlikely bunch step out of their comfort zones and become unlikely friends.
Starring Henry Thomas and a very young and adorable Drew Barrymore, follow the story of a young boy and his love for a small alien lost on Earth. Not only does this film teach you about love and friendship, but will having you “phone home” in no time. Have a tissue box near by for this one.
