    Last week I started a thread on that movie Sooner or Later from 1979 (I know, not the 80s but pretty close).

    Last weekend, I watched The Pirate Movie with Christopher Atkins (such a cutie) and Kristy McNichol. Really cheesy but really cute. I enjoyed it.

    What are some other cheesy movies from the 80s (or 70s)?

    LOVE The Pirate Movie. Along with other very watchable but totally cheesy movies:

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
    Mystic Pizza
    Just One of the Guys
    Dirty Dancing (admit it - it was cheesy)
    Adventures in Babysitting
    Vision Quest (not sure if that's cheesy category, but it's in my head)
    Space Camp
    Legend of Billy Jean
    War Games
    Best of Times

    The Three Amigos with Steve Martin. I believe that one was done on a super short shoestring budget, the FX was *that* bad.

    LOVE the Pirate Movie! So cheesy!!

    Also loved Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band with the Bee Gees and Peter Frampton as Billy Shears. Featuring the music of the Beatles along with George Burns, Aerosmith, Earth, Wind & Fire, Steve Martin, and Alice Cooper. A true delight for the fan of fine aged cheese. Technically not an 80's movie- came out in 1978.

    Earth Girls are Easy with Gina Davis, a young Jim Carey and Damon Wayans, and Jeff Goldblum.

    Howard the Duck
    Garbage Pail Kids


    Those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. I love the 80's and we did have a lot of good classics from that decade.

    I can't believe nobody has mentioned Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo or The Last Dragon!! Two of the CHEESIEST movies of all time!!

    Really, when it comes to the 80's it's hard to come up with anything "cheesy". The whole decade was pretty cheesy when you think about it. :rotfl:

    I love all things 80's. Here's some of my favorite 80's movies that I don't think are TOO cheesy:

    Flash Gordon
    The Ice Pirates
    Better Off Dead
    One Crazy Summer
    Hot Pursuit
    Tag - The Assassination Game
    Gotcha
    Big Trouble in Little China

    I remember seeing that in early elementary. I have no idea what it was about but I remember crying and crying and thinking it was so sad!
