Good day 80's freaks,

What 80's movie character would you want to be for 1 week. You would live that characters life for 1 whole week as they would and return to yours as you left it bringing nothing back with you, not even the memory of it. Oh yeah, leave money out of it, after all it's just a week. An explanation of your choice would be great if time allows. Heck, do a top 5 if you want. I'm easy.

I would be Chris Knight from "Real Genius." Oh wait, I already played that part in the 80s, except for the fuzzy bunny slippers. [Smile]

Since the character is from One Crazy Summer, the most recent '80s movie I've watched, I'll go with Egg Stork. I'm up for dressing in a Godzilla costume and crashing a fancy party!

Sorry - for some reason I just had to quote this...... [Big Grin]

I guess most of us would pick the character for the stuff that happens in the movie.

Naturally for me, Keith Nelson is a given, as long as it's THAT week, and not, for example, a week where he spends all of his time up to his armpits in sump oil from a Chevy.

Other suggestions:

Del Griffith - the week AFTER the events in PT&A.
Walter Gibson. Actually with Gib, just about ANY week would be cool.
Ferris of coourse - always did appreciate the role Mia Sara had in his life...

Pee Wees Playhouse? Is that a real house someone lives in today or just a front or something to that effect built for the movie. And any idea where it is located if it is a real home.

Gotta go back, it is a real house that somebody lives in today and here is the link to prove it.

This would be way higher on my list if the criteria had been (1) night and I could combine the characters played by the same actor. ha

Bonus pick: Bruno X (uh or Cliffy mistaken for Bruno X from Modern Girls - I'm torn) [Cool]

Valley, O.T. from Spring Break might be one of the great choices ever. I'm going to have to think to top that.
