The 1980s were a troubled time. There were terrible fashions. People talked seriously about Mutually Assured Destruction. Cocaine was everywhere. And yet, the movies of that era have an innocence and fun that's difficult to beat. What movie from the 1980s is just the most straight-up fun to watch?

Please include a picture, poster, clip, or other piece of artwork for your chosen movie. And please mention the name of the film, and why it's so goshdarn fun. Thanks!
