Well I wasn't a Tomcat Driver, but I did arm them and I was on a Aircraft Carrier for two Med Cruises.

So I have no choice but to pick Top Gun

PUH-LEEZ!

About the only 80's movie that would describe the lives of most people here is The Friggin' Breakfast Club (me included). Maybe Porky's or Fast Times too...


Yeah, Red Dawn, Top Gun, Indiana Jones, etc would be cool. But not realistic.


ETA: So here is the real question: WHO are you in The Breakfast Club? I dunno who I am (maybe a mix of all three male characters), but I know that I wanted to "get to know" Molly Ringwald regardless!

AMERICAN GIGOLO - I was a horn dog

THE BLOB - Because I got really drunk and let a fat chick honk my jake.

THE BOY WHO COULD FLY - I smoked my first and last joint.

What I wished it was? or what it really was?
For wishing i wish it was 'fast times at ridgemont high'
In reality it was 'Karate kid'
Cause i got beat up a lot in junior high by the same bully assholes till i got sick of it.
In the spring before highschool i enrolled in an Okanowian Shotokan Karate school. The sensi could barely speak Ingrish! He could'nt prononuce my American (Terrence) name so he gave me the name "Tokey" instead. I explained my situation and he gave me a six month crash course in "bully fighting" (mostly Elbow and knee strikes to vital areas ) So come October in '90 I was confronted in the hall between two of the king assholes. Suffice to say the outcome this time was diifferent. They ended up in the nurses office, and I fucking I!! end up in the principles office for being a trouble maker!! What fucking horseshit! When they told my mother she acted "concerned" but she knew my real situation and supported me at home. My dad virtually gave me a medal! Suffiice to say i've won almost all the fights i got in since then. Almost? well there were a few times i was outnumbered and my friends are as useless as tits on a bull.

[Loud Buzzer] Sorry, but thanks for playing anyway! [/Loud Buzzer]

(Rock & Roll High Scool came out in 1979. )


ETA: Didn't mean to single you out, BTW - others listed here don't belong as well. (Animal House [1978]; FOUR Weddings & a Funeral [1996]; etc.)

As for me...

During the '80s: Animal House (college ) & St. Elmo's Fire (post-college/grad school )

During the '90s: The Survivors and/or Deal of the Century (had to have 6 of every gun out there )

Now: Parenthood (with a little Next of Kin thrown in - I do live in the sticks, surrounded by [armed] family )


(If you asked my friends/family they would tell you, withouit hesitation, that I am Burt Gummer ... but then again, most of them probably wouldn't know that Tremors didn't come out until 1990! )
