Ten Things...

...I Have Learned From '80s Movies (Part 2)

10. You should always take the lovable nerd over the unattainable rich kid. Hey wait a second... (Pretty In Pink)

9. To create your very own supermodel, all you need is a barbie doll, a circa 1985 computer, and a little help from Oingo Boingo. (Weird Science)

8. As long as you are good at basketball, no one will care that you are a werewolf. (Teen Wolf)

7. Body swap movies? Pure box office gold. (Big, Like Father Like Son, Vice Versa, 18 Again!)

6. The only one with enough influence to end the Cold War is an underdog Italian boxer with brain damage. "If I can change, then you can change. We all can change!" (Rocky IV)

5. "Nobody puts Baby in a corner." (Dirty Dancing)

4. Hitching a ride with a portly female truck driver in the middle of the night is never a good idea. (Pee Wee's Big Adventure)

3. "When someone asks you if you are a god, you say YES!" (Ghostbusters)

2. The government won't think twice about raiding your home in space suits to take your pet alien away. (E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial)

1. The most bankable star of the decade? Tom Cruise? Sly Stallone? Bruce Willis? Nope, Steve Guttenburg, baby! (Cocoon, Police Academy, Short Circuit, Three Men and a Baby)

"Nobody puts Baby in a corner"?!?! WORST 80's film line..EVER. Totally ruined an otherwise mediocre movie.

I wonder what happened to Steve Guttenberg. Perhaps one of these days he'll return from the compound and have his own short-lived TV series. I look forward to that day.
