Something very few comedian/actors can do. I would also like to give an honorable mention to Rushmore which is not in the poll as well as What about Bob? these two flicks along with GHD should have been in the poll....just sayin' is all.


Sorry Bob - I'm keeping it to the 80's. The clues in the title :P

Heh - Zoning would be so much easier if work would just, well....not be.

The Av/Sig combination gives you more than enough leeway in my book Bob, that's a classic combo :lol:

The Dino... he wrong.

I LOVE Stripes, but Stripes loses points for turning into some weird early 80s Rambo fantasy with the ridiculous RV with rockets and shit. While the first 2/3 of the movie are a fantastic comedic ride, the last third, while still being entertaining, just doesn't match the comedic punch of what comes before. Instead of being about outsiders turning the system upside down, it becomes a jingoistic U.S. ARMY IS AWESOME RA! RA! RA! By the end of the film, the movie embraces everything it parodies before. A total tonal clusterfuck. And yeah, I have seen it really recently, so don't tell me I am misremembering.

On the other hand, Ghostbusters is timeless. The movie is a consistently written comedy and it NEVER seems to grow old or tired. Besides it has my favorite line in any comedy ever:

"You're right... no human could stack books this way."

YES - one more for Caddyshack!


It's a freakin' classic


Sub-par sequels really do spoil some great movies.
