Some Vintage Eighties Films to Share with Your Teenage Daughter

Like if this guide is helpful

 It seems that whenever a product has vintage in the title it adds to the price tag.  As my daughter loves everything vintage I thought I would share some eighties film with her that I grew up with and see if she liked them as much as I did. 

The Breakfast Club
Directed by John Hughes this film chronicles an early morning detention that brings five students together. As the film continues the students reveal their issues to each other and gradually become friends.  The students realise they have more in common than they thought.  The characters can be criticised for being stereotyped the nerd, the jock, the princess, the rebel etc. but this could be a simplistic representation of the labels we attribute to people in high school.  Hit with both mum & daughter. 

Teen Witch
On second viewing Teen Witch was so bad it was good.  The eighties fashion and big hair was amazing.  It was god fun to watch it is basically an eighties version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.  We both thought this was cheesy and funny and enjoyed every minute of it.  Hit with both mum & daughter. 
 
The Princess Bride
I love this film, love it.  I think it really funny and epic story with princesses, swordfighters and pirates.  It was a hit with both mum & daughter but daughter thought it was ok and possibly not the best film ever made while mum disagreed. 
 
The Gremlins
A fantastic Christmas film both dark and funny, Mogwai’s are seriously cute but get them wet or feed them after midnight and you get a dreaded Gremlin.  Hilarity ensues after a Mogwai called Gizmo gets wet and Gremlins take over a typical American town with hilarious results.  Both mum & daughter have a very dark sense of humour and thought this film was hilarious. 

We both enjoyed our eighties film discovery and came up with this list of our favourite films together.  By the way I wrote this review because I am a Bzzagent and they asked me to write a review on ebay to get a free product.
