Ok. I guess it's only fair to have the losers as well as the cool characters.

My top 5 losers from the 80's movies:

1. Mr. Underhill
2. Cliff & Bryce
3. Biff Tannen
4. John Kreese [Karate Kid]
5. Edward R. Rooney

Just starting things off but lets see if we can get some absolute losers mentioned.

Ok compiling it from everybodys posts:

1. Biff Tannen - 3 votes
2. Ed Rooney - 2 Votes
3. Chet
4. All the people watching the pie eating contest - but especially the twins.
5. Bug - "Ever hear of a tune up, tehe he he?"

Does this seem fair?

Now that you look at it. I bet Chet and Biff would get along really well.

Top 5 Losers: In no particular order

1. Richard Thornburg--Die Hard
2. Chet Donnelly--Weird Science
3. Steve Powers--Secret Admirer
4. Walter Peck--Die Hard
5. Jerry Hathaway--Real Genius TIED with Robert Robert Prescott as "Kent" or even as Cole from Bachelor Party.

My guess is that you can say that William Atherton chose very slimy, loserish roles back in the 80s!
