What Are the Best Teen Movies of All Time Form the 80s?
Teen movies certainly capture the hearts and imaginations of teenagers, but in actuality, they’re great for all generations of people. Back in the 80s, good teen movies were at their peak, and today, we still love the way they make us laugh and smile. Here are some of the best movies of all time that are specifically from the 80s.
- “The Breakfast Club” 1985
“The Breakfast Club” is a story of six teens locked up in high school detention on a Saturday morning. All from different cliques in school, they’re forced to spend time together and actually get to know one another. Fortunately in doing so, they learn things about each other that they never would have otherwise known. Not only is it touching and poignant even today, but it’s also one of the funniest movies.
- “Pretty in Pink “ 1986
This film stars Molly Ringwald. She’s a teenage outcast and from a poor family, but she’s trying to make it in high school as best she can with her best friend, Duckie. This friend also happens to be in love with her, but Ringwald’s character doesn’t exactly feel the same. Instead, she’s eyeing the hottest guy in school. Who will she choose?
- “Say Anything” 1989
This 80s teen film stars John Cusack as Lloyd and Ione Skye as Diane. The two are complete opposites in high school. Lloyd skips school and acts out while Diane is an honor student. In charming teen movie fashion, however, they fall for each other in the end, and viewers get to watch a delightful romance and coming of age story.
