          Tennage witch i think I do remember was kind of like Sabrina or something, The Care Bears movie I think there was two of them, I always watched the one with those summer camp kids and that dark-heart kid who could transform into pretty much anything he wanted to.

                    The best has to be The Breakfast Club....who wouldnt want to be stuck in a school without having to go to a class. And being unsupervised, thats everyones dream in high school. To do what you want.

                      My list would be:

                      1. Weird Science: I mean, come on! Who hasn't seen it?!

                      2. Girls Just Want to Have Fun: Dancing, romance, more dancing! Great movie for a girls night in!

                      3. Dirty Dancing: Great movie, great soundtrack and Patrick Swayze

                      4. Ferris Bueller's Day Off: Pretty good movie, I guess. Gotten kind of sick of seeing on TV though.

                      5. The Breakfast Club: Good movie. Nice to see so many famous people before they were famous.

                      6. Pretty in Pink: Love Andrew McCarthy in this movie!

                      7. Chances Are: Late 80's movie, but still the 80's. Great movie with a beautiful song at the end (After All by Cher and Peter Cetera)

                      8. Gremlins: Funny movie, cool little monsters. I love the Mogwai (not sure about spelling) he was soooo cute!

                      9. Uncle Buck: Love John Candy in this movie, very funny movie and you get to see Macaulay Culkin when he was little and Gaby Hoffman, too!

                      10. The Last American Virgin: Good movie, sad ending. Diane Franklin is in it, and she is very pretty. Nice soundtrack too.

                        The Goonies -- Just about everyone is fond of this.
                        The Karate Kid -- I remember them showing it to us in the school library once.
                        The Never-ending Story -- Also saw it in school. Man, we loved it.
                        Michael Jackson's Moonwalker -- Good music; entertaining tales.

                        V: The Final Battle -- The awesome, definitive conclusion (what ongoing series?)

                                I think Back to the Future is a pretty good one. It's my favorite anyway.

                                I also like the Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day off, Pretty in Pink, and Dirty Dancing.

                                  i gotta admit, i didn't watch much 80s fare during that time period. i watched tons of classics. however, the one movie that i did like that WAS made in the 80s was PLATOON.

                                  i was fucking depressed for weeks after watching it.

                                          The only teen movie I can think of that hasn't been mentioned is the original Poison Ivy starring Michael J Fox and Nancey McKean.

                                          I wouldn't say these are exactly "teen" movies, but they are close enough

                                          The Gate
                                          The Sandlot
                                          The Jhonny Depp movie where him and his two friends were bellboys at a hotel resort.
