So if you could live any 80's movie what would it be? Before you go...that is so easy it's my favorite movie...wait a second before posting and think about it first.

For instance, would I really want to be Maverick from "Top Gun"? I don't know my father, I'm the black sheep of the Navy, and I just killed my wingman. I feel the need, the need for...some other movie to live.

Or how about, jet setting bartender Brian Flanagan. Sounds like fun on the beach at first, but my beach trip is cut short because I met a girl I really dig then dumped her from some older chick with cash, then I decide I want her back, only she saw me on the beach and now she's pregnant. Doesn't sound like the kinda Beach Party that I was planning. Oh cripes my best friend just killed himself.

So think carefully before you answer, because if you believe it hard enough....who knows it might happen. Ok maybe not, but it's fun to think about. [Cool]

Now wait a second JLP. I mean the ending was good, but what about Sam's days leading up to that point. Her parents forgot her birthday, her grandmother felt her up, she had to take a crazy chinese guy with her to the school dance, she had to give her underpants to a geek, and we don't know for sure Sam & Jake lasted forever. He wasn't the best boyfriend to Caroline when you really think about it. [Wink]

Just joking JLP, I love when "Wish You Were Here" is playing at the end of the movie. Cool Choice.

Nice topic Valley!

Cheesy as it may be, I think I'd go for Dirty Dancing. I mean, who hasn't experienced going on vacation with their parents in their young teenage years and then meeting this hot dance teacher/diving instructor/bar tender/or just guy who was your parent's worst nightmare and having a summer affair... Those were the "time of your life", falling so hard in love and then being heart broken when you had to separate when the summer was over. But you took so much emotion with you from that experience, and just felt so alive.

I think if Dirty Dancing came out today, I wouldn't even care to watch it, but I love it because it reflects this time in my life and these experiences so well.
Sigh. [Smile] [Big Grin] [Wink]

It's got to be Fletch. To be able to talk (or disguise) your way out of any pinch, it would be sweet. "Here's a dog that tried to bite me, here's the motel I stayed in, here's my car, the dog tried to bite that too, here's the Mormon Tabernacle."

Another pick is Keith Nelson of SKOW. I mean, you go from being the losery unknown kid in the school with a father riding your *** to having two hot girls in love with you, standing up to the assface HS king, your dad is fine with you being an artist, and have a legion of metalheads by your side. That would rock pretty hardcore.

There's also Stefan Djordjevic from All The Right Moves. I mean, you make it right with your coach, you get out of the town, and you have a beautiful young girl who is devoted to you. Plus, you kick *** at football.

Hmmm, I'd still have to go with my favourite... SJP in Girls Just Want to Have Fun. Although the whole militant, over possessive father would be rather tedious. I like her because she's a good girl with a small amount of rebel inside. Plus...Lee Montgomery Schnizels my nizzle. [Wink]

I'd enjoy living Ghostbusters. Just the idea of standing against something from another realm and pouring everything at them (and know that you can't kill them because they're already dead, so your soul's at peace) is exhilerating. All the while making goofy comments, too.

Ok JLP ....don't be greedy, what will Jake think?

Lonnie, you get the cute exchange student in the end, but the slope to get there is kind of steep. I want my $2!!!!

Anna never underestimate the wraith of an overprotective father. However if someone is gonna Schnizels your nizzle, then this might be an excellent choice.

Chris did you not see the size of that Pillsbury Dough Boy?...btw, did you like the short lived cartoon that was on Saturday mornings?

I think it would have been pretty cool to be David in the Lost Boys even though those deer antlers would have been painful.

"Career Opportunities" was great...For a 90s movie. [Wink]

I suppose I can't criticize the "izzle" speak...Anybody ever hear that 80s song "Double Dutch Bus"?

Me...What movie would I like to live?

"Lethal Weapon"? No, I wouldn't want to be a suicidal, possibly psychotic widower with a badge and a price on his head that's wanted by an albino jackrabbit son-of-a-b****.

"Pink Floyd: The Wall"? I wouldn't touch this one with a 10 foot pole.

That's it, I've got it:

"STEWARDESS SCHOOL"! I would like to be like Brett Cullen's character of Philo Henderson. He's a failed pilot who goes back to flight school with his nerdy buddy and meets a bunch of people looking to become stewardesses and stewards, including a symphony orchestra player, a heavy metal babe, a former female wrestler, an ex-hooker, and the prerequisite fat chick and gay guy. We would have a bunch of misadventures and then embark on our first flight where pretty much everything that can go wrong will (including lost contact lenses, klutziness reborn and a couple of terrorists as well...This is the 80s, so we can still look at those guys as jokers instead of maniacs). We band together and use our quirks to make things right, and although we end up going to court over what happens, we're acquited, we graduate, and I get the beautiful but clumsy symphony member/stewardess.

That, I could go with.

Sincerely,

John Kilduff...

And I wrote reviews of each movie I mentioned for this website. Cool, ain't it?

Well, can I say Julie from Valley Girl (again) because she had cool clothes, hip parents, an awesome boyfriend, and was queen of the Prom.

I also love Muffy's life from April Fool's Day, she had alot going on, the fact that her Dad was worth 50 million over the counter, well that isn't so bad. I think besides a few traumatic childhood experiences with Jack in the Boxes, she turned out semi normal.

So..hey Goofboy....since you told us all who you didn't want to be....I can understand why knocking up your girlfriend , who you meet on your vacation fling...might not be one to wanna follow.

So, who would you like to be??

It is actually harder to come up with someone who isn't totally disfunctional, when you really start looking at the whole thing.

I mean would ya wanna be Bud and Sissy in Urban Cowboy...living in a trailor that was a pig sty and eating McDonald's every night for supper?

I mean in An Officer and a Gentlemen....Zach's past was horribly bad, and Paula's was pretty bad, she never knew her real dad, cause he dumped her mom, and Zach's best friend kills himself.

But...you end up liking the characters....but...I know I sure don't wanna end up like Jack Nicholson in One Flew over the Cuckoo Nest's, or The Shining.

I love About Last Night...but I wouldn't want either one of their best friends.

Everyone in St. Elmo's Fire and The Breakfast Club was completely messed up.

I think being Lisa in Weird Science would have had many pluses to it, so that would have been another one of my choices.

I'd be Randy from Valley Girl. I was already a new wave/skater kid at the time it came out so it wouldn't be a stretch. Plus he got Julie and beat down that jock loser Tommy at the end! Perfect.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off, without a doubt.

My fave 80's film is Fright Night, but I don't really want to live next to vampires and have my best friend turned into one. Plus, my girlfriend would grow up to become a lesbian

Great to see someone like Brode wantin' to be FLETCH.so cool.
I think Ferris is a great choice,but he's been taken already and i dont want to be a loser and copy...
So im thinkin' Anthony Michael Hall in WEIRD SCIENCE.Yeah he gets slushie poured on him,thats ok by me.He gets a lot of stick from other guys,hey its like real life!
But he's got some great one-liners,creats Steven-if I cup my hands over my stomach in a pensive way no-one will notice im fat-Seagal's wife.And gets to have some fun with her before she decides to run off with Mr Seagal.
He showers with her,kisses her.Gets all brave and cool and gets rid of Vernon Wells who's wearing a costume almost as camp as his Commando get-up.What is it with that guy?Hello!!
So yeah im goin' for A.M.H. ''Its purely sexual''

FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMOUNT HIGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Since someone has already pick RANDY from Valley Girl [Roll Eyes] i have to go with............... Jeff Spicoli from "Fast Times At Ridgemount High" .

Jeff was one of the COOLEST characters in the movie [Cool] He ordered pizza while he was in class--Jeff also has been... "Stoned Since The 3rd Grade" (just like me [Wink] ). And Jeff still graduated from high school.

I mean both Jack Burton and Leroy are cool.
