Inspired by another thread, I miss 1980's comedies, there were so many.

I'll start:

The Money Pit, 1986

Teenage movies ROCKED in the 80's. Far too many to list. The 80's were awesome to be a kid.

That one is better comedy when seen alongside Hotel Rwanda.

The heavy handed anti US military messages contradict themselves so much it is truly funny.

For every good 80's comedy there are fourteen thousand bad 80's comedies.

Love that movie! Laughed my ass off when the tub fell through the floor and when he got stuck in the rug upstairs. She came home that night and he said, "The care bears where here!"

Actress who played Dan Akroyd's fiance in that movie owns a little dress shop in town. . . before I knew that I bought my wife a dress and belt there. . . nice, French––the clothes, not the woman. . .and by little dress shop, I mean the shop is small, not the dresses. . . .

I especially like the plumber scene where the plumber does this:
