My brother spent an entire summer quoting "They Call Me Bruce" Soooo cheesy, and in hindsight, most definitely not something a preteen should have been quoting, let alone watching. My parents really should have rethought those cable channels.

Totally agree on "The Last Starfighter". Egads, and "C.H.U.D." and "Buckaroo Bonzai". What a trip.

OMG! I loved the last 4 that you mentioned! I remember going to the movie theater to see Time Bandits and Krull.

DH and I were talking recently about the graphics of older movies and how they looked compared to now. We were watching The Shadow when we got on the topic.

I love cheesy movies from the 80's.

Just watched The Three Amigos a couple of weeks ago. The kids loved it. I love Steve Martin and the kids have an uncle that looks exactly like Chevy Chase. They love seeing Uncle Paul on TV and in movies.

I own Adventures in Babysitting

Now we are watching cheesy TV shows from the 80's. Just picked up the first season of The Greatest American Hero. Best 80's hair ever on a man.

I don't think anyone mentioned Ice Castles - well, technically it came out in 1978.

When I thought about 80's movies, I couldn't think of any that I thought of as cheesy but there are more than I can even remember that I loved watching!

The night of the comet is so funny. About a year ago DH found it on Netflix and got DS, Sam (our foreign ex student), and me to sit down and watch with him. He was going on and on about how great it was. and how he loved it when he was a teen. Then the movie starts playing and we're all looking at him and saying you thought this was a great movie?? We all watched it to the end - cracking up the entire time!

OK this movie is my ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE. Seriously I watched it probably 40 times as a teen. This year DS was going around telling us that he got me the "perfect" Christmas gift this year, and low and behold it was the Breakfast Club movie. And was so pleased with himself when I was overjoyed and told him repeatedly he got the perfect one. DH was sitting there saying that he got a perfect one too, and he did - another breakfast club movie!! 2 for me, now I can watch it in stereo!

"believe it or not I'm walking on air..." Oh how I loved the intro song; don't really remember a whole lot about the program, but that song gets stuck in my head a lot, like right now...

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention
