Doesn't it seems like every hero or heroine in an 80's movie has a hilariously bratty little brother? They go through the whole movie interfering with whatever the lead character is trying to do, and pretty much always have the best lines in the movie.

Here are some obvious examples that come to mind...

Mike from Sixteen Candles

 -
Pretty much spends all of his screen time making fun of his sister Sam and everyone else in his family, and usually in very non-politically correct ways.

Best quote: "I have to sleep under a Chinaman who's named after a duck's dork."

Bud from Just One of the Guys

 -
How could you not love Bud? Bud is obsessed with two things; losing his virginity and humiliating his sister Terry. He also had the best prom outfit EVER.

Best quote: "It just so happens that Kim, here, reads Vonnegut in her bubble bath. And, Luann has dedicated her centerfold to help clean-up toxic waste. And, the only reason Barbara does her physics homework buck naked is 'cause that library is HOT."

Richie from Teen Witch

 -
Richie is just weird and creepy. Likes to indulge in typical pesky brotherly behavior like reading his sister's diary and being a huge pig.

Best Quote: "You think you're hot stuff because you went to a dance. Dream on! No one wants do date you because you are a dog! A dog! A dog!"

Can you guys think of any others?? I know there's more....

why's it got to be the brother?

What about the little bratty sisters?

Like Wesley in "RAD", or Sara in "Adventures in Babysitting".

You're right, lots of bratty sisters too! Candace Cameron in Some Kind of Wonderful would be one of them. Didn't John Cusack have a weird little brother in Better Off Dead too?

Great thread Veronica!  Several of my favs have already been named, but how about:

 -

Jeff Ryan who was Michael's pesky little bro in "Secret Admirer"

or Laura Jacoby's other pesky role as:

Peggy who was Suzi's little sis in "Valley Girl"

I declare myself; pesky younger brother of The Rewind!

Technically, Mikey was Brand's pesky brother in Goonies.

How about Jefferson's little brother in Fast Times? Can't be anything more pesky than destroying your prized vehicle with Spicoli [Smile]

For a darker side of the pesky little brother syndrome...how about Joshua Miller in River's Edge with Keanu Reeves. That kid was psychotic!

Got nothing to really contribute except the following two snippets:

Do Miles and Maizy qualify as bratty little brother and sister to Tia in Uncle Buck? Or is she their bratty older sister?

And nobody yet comes close to these two dudes....

Seth Green (again) as Malcolm, Milly's younger brother in "Willy/Milly" who traded her the magic sex-change potion instruction list.

He did all right, Veronica. Scooter Stevens' Badger Meyer was the brother of John Cusack's Lane Meyer.
