Welp, looks like journey came in and declared dominance. Might as well lock the thread [Big Grin]

Awesome list! Reminded me of a few I had forgotten about.

I thought Student Exchange(1987) was a good movie. I don't see this movie come up often so it's either forgotten or nobody likes it [Frown]

I like it a lot. I think Disney made some pretty good movies around that time.

Another couple missing are '14 Going on 30' and 'Senior Trip'.

Three that I'm anxiously awaiting on DVD are...

Out Of Bounds (1986)Anthony Michael Hall, Jenny Wright

The Wild Life (1984)Eric Stoltz, Chris Penn (RIP)

Little Darlings (1980)Kristy McNichol, Tatum O'Neal

I don't know what the hold up is on these three. So many lesser movies with nobodies in them are out on DVD but these three are not.

I don't know why.

I haven't seen anyone mention the movie Old Enough it's about a rich girl and an older girl becoming friends. It's also set in the 80s. It's a really good coming of age movie

I actually got a nice HD widescreen copy of it from showtime a few months ago.

I always put the 'Little Darlings' delay down to the music rights.

Is that just a list of all the different movies that I've been posting about? I kind of like seeing the list all in one posting!

Personally wouldn't class it as a teen movie.

Fair 'nuff. Felt it might fit as it's so elusive. How about The Idolmaker, it's about teen idols.

Nope. For me a teen movie has to be about teenagers. Coming of age might be a good term.

I recall 'Idolmaker' being a good movie. 'TNTLWOIG' I didn't really care for.

How about the six degrees of a teen movie..

"Idolmaker" which actually is a great movie might not qualify according to Logan's rules .. but one of the teen idols from the movie is played by Paul Land who played Stu in the infamous teen movie "Spring Break"..

Oh and how can you not call "Idolmaker" a teen movie when you have an appearance by Maureen McCormick aka Marcia Brady? ha

I actually agree with Logan5.. but even if we win, if we win, HAH! Even if we win! Even if we play so far above our heads that our noses bleed for a week to ten days; even if God in Heaven above comes down and points his hand at our side of the field; even if every man woman and child held hands together and prayed for us to win, it just wouldn't matter because all the really good looking girls would still go out with the guys from Mohawk because they've got all the money! It just doesn't matter if we win or we lose. IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER!

The Idolmaker was good-couldn't watch it enough on HBO back in the day-course they played the same movie over and over (and over). Great soundtrack. 'TNTLWOIG' is my Mom's all time fave so I sorta have to like it. Watched it the other day-1st time in years.

How do you submit a movie to the 80's list/write a synopsis/review?

Six degrees! Everything would be a teen movie!

I don't think I've ever seen 'Spring Break'! [Eek!]

That was easy for him to say. He wound up one of the famous rich guys! Whither thou, rest-of-the-cast?

In that case you have to like it. I found McNichol to be depressing (and probably depressed) for the whole movie.

Terrific thread. Of the movies mentioned, "Thief of Hearts," while not a teen film, is very undervalued. We all know what happened to Steven Bauer, but whatever happened to Barbara Williams? She's great in this.

"Out of Bounds" is no great shakes, but the Stewart Copeland soundtrack is brilliant.

And what can I say about "Certain Fury," the classic tale of two once-promising young starlets on the downward slide into this really sleazy piece of gutter trash? I love it!

Gosh, "Feds," along with any other movie with Lea Thompson, wins the "toilet flush" award--after you see the film, you can't remember a darned thing about it. It's like someone flushed out your brain. Seriously, can anyone quote dialogue from this one or perhaps "Casual Sex"?

I did mention Thief of Hearts~I guess I was thinking more "forgotten 80's movies" then teen ones. Though I was a teen when all these movies came out [Smile]

Saw Casual Sex in the theater/still like it. Andrew Dice Clay and all his muscle poses, that horrible therapist guy. Here's a quote:

"I love therapy. I think everyone should be in therapy."

"That would be good for me."
