V is for.......... Vision Quest.
Hollywood loves to crank out movies for the teen set. Most of them are crap of course, but a solid number are entertaining, and a rare few are even insightful. I dare say you can learn a lot about a person by their favorite teen flicks.
Every generation thinks their teen movies are the best, and I am definitely partial to the teen flicks of the 80s.
Vision Quest wasn't my favorite teen movie of the 80s, but I did love it. I mean, a gorgeous drifter moves in with a teenage boy and his dad and then falls in love with the kid? That was definitely a plot that worked for me.
To be honest, Vision Quest is really just an excuse to do a top 5 list. My top 5 80s teen movies:
5) Pretty in Pink
4) Vision Quest
3) Ferris Bueller's Day Off
2) The Breakfast Club
1) Say Anything
Got a favorite 80s teen flick? If you weren't a teen of the 80s, what's your favorite teen movie?
