V is for..........

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?


  1. I don't remember this movie, but I love "Pretty in Pink." And now every time I think of "Say Anything," I think of the hilarious scene in the TV show, "Modern Family," with Phil and Dylan. So, so funny. :)

  2. For some reason I never saw Vision Quest, but I remember the Madonna song from it that was everywhere at the time. That may be why I never saw it, I never liked Madonna.

    Totally agree with the rest of your list, especially Say Anything at the top. I'd put Ferris at #2 and probably add The Outsiders.

  3. I didn't see Vision Quest. However, I like all of the other movies on your list. I would probably sub in The Princess Bride or Better Off Dead. I also really liked She's Having A Baby. That was one of my favorite movies. I couldn't tell you how many times I have seen that movie. Soooo quotable. All three of them.

  4. Haven't seen the movie .. but I agree, Hollywood needs to get a grip.
