OK bloggers…to go along with my Facebook stalking theme I decided to dedicate this week’s Flashback Friday to movies that involved teenage crushes! Oh and I have to tell you that some of the celebrities in these movies were HOT and I have to confess that I don’t know if I still don’t secretly want to have a crush over some of them now... SO YUMMY! OK…so let’s just get this started shall we? Here we go…the top 5 Teenage Crush Movies:
16 Candles-I cannot lie…this is my favorite movie of ALL time! John Hughes was a genius…I love those neo-maxi-zoomed-dweebs! Oh and Jake Ryan…wheesh…that boy is HOT! Holy Crap!
Heathers-Can I get a WOOT WOOT for Christian Slater? OMG that boy was panty melting gorgeous! I have to tell ya that this movie was very dark but you all have to admit that it was funny…I know that I was thanking my Korean mother for not naming me Heather after this movie! Hmmm…re-thinking that last thought…if I WERE named Heather then I could have had a very yummy Christian Slater as my love interest! Crap…dang Korean mother! HAHAHAHAAAA!
Uncle Buck-This movie is just classic! I love the HUGE pancake scene in this movie! Look at at the size of that sucker...my pancakes NEVER turn out that round EVER! HAHAHHAHAHAHHA!
Footloose-Who did NOT want to dance with Kevin Bacon? Holy crap that scene in the warehouse where he is all sweaty in his wife beater still makes me swoon! That is A LOT of hot mess teen angst going on there but he's sooooo DELICIOUS!
The Breakfast Club-So…I know that I have a lot of John Hughes movies on this list but COME ON...in the 80’s these movies were the SHIZZ! I have to admit that I had a little bit of a flannel obsession going on with Judd Nelson and his brooding bad boy ways and Emilio Estevez wasn't too hard on the ol' teenage eyes either!
BONUS PICK: Flashdance-I totally know that this was NOT a teenage flick but hey…this movie had a lot of obsessive love going on here. Oh and I have to say that her fashion sense gave people (like me) a reason to wear leg warmers and sweatshirts with the collar ripped out…in PUBLIC! Yeah...that is kind of embarrassing... *sigh*
So there you go people in the blogosphere…the top 5 teen angst movies of the 80’s! Now go ahead and get some popcorn and let the angstfest begin! I know that I am one shovel full away from streaming Heathers in HD AND in THX quality surround sound so that I can get up close and personal with Christian Slater! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!
