Will we need photo ID to compare to the list?

When Harry met Sally
Pee Wee’s Big Adventure
The Breakfast Club
Teen Wolf
Weird Science
Fri/13th part 3 not the original
I chose Splash over Little Mermaid.

Can’t see video on this device, I’m sure I got more than Scott and I have listed, but I couldn’t name at least 2 and didn’t get any that were shown on the TVs.

Can we get a complate list?



11 Laurie March 3, 2011 at 9:20 am

Sean, you couldn’t get any that were on the tv’s because those were scenes from the actual movie “Take Me Home Tonight” ;-)

I thought I got like 42. Some of mine might have been just 80′s references and not 80′s movies though.

It was fun just testing my 80′s movies knowledge. :-)
