About This Quiz

Are you a fan of '80s movies? Take this quiz to test your knowledge.

Although some critics of '80s movies might accuse them of being more than a bit formulaic, we think they were fun and engaging. After all, isn't that the point?

'80s movies included such gems as "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Sixteen Candles," "Pretty in Pink The Breakfast Club," and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High." 

In fact, so many of these movies starred the same actors and actresses that the group was known as the Brat Pack (a play on the original Rat Pack of the 1960s which was comprised of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop, who also appeared in movies and on stage together in many productions of the era). 

These movies starred such notable names as Sarah Jessica Parker, Demi Moore, Patrick Swayze, Sean Penn, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy, Anthony Michael Hall, and Nicholas Cage.

But the '80s had its serious side, too. Movies like "Top Gun," "The Terminator," "Blade Runner," "Stand By Me," "The Shining," "Dirty Dancing," and "Poltergeist" were also '80s blockbusters. So, whether you were into the serious side or the fun side of eighties movies, this quiz is for you.
