When I was 9 years old I watched it every day for 10 months, no lies, the only reason I stopped was because we went on holidays for 2 weeks.

others

Adventures in Babysitting
Christmas Vacation
The Goonies
Planes, TRAINS & Automobiles
Transformers The Movie

There were tons, but Revenge of the Nerds was watched every single day and up to 3 times a day sometimes. No exageration.

Great list Eddie. Although I didn't mention them in my initial post, I also loved Something Wicked this Way Comes, E.T., Gremlins, and License to Drive when I was a kid. A couple of others that I neglected in my first post: Big and The 'burbs. My two favorite Tom Hanks movies of the 80's.

Way too many to list, but 90% of it is stuff that I still watch. The exceptions would be some of the more kiddie oriented titles like the Muppet Movies, Masters of the Universe, Garbage Pail Kids, etc.
