Just finished watching Ghostbusters. Things I noticed:

1) 'Dana Barrett' character really was a snappy dresser
2) Dan Akroyd was YOUNG.
3) When did Bill Murray actually have hair?

What's your favorite retro movie?

Ghostbusters is a great movie! My son insists that Ghostbusters II was even better, but I'm going to have to disagree with him there.

If I had to pick one favorite retro movie, it would probably have to be Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

There was this movie called So Fine. I remember watching it with my dad and laughing so hard.

"It's 106 miles to Chicago. We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses. - Hit it."
also said by me earlier this week to a small group of colleagues...I thought it was hilarious. No one else got it. Really??

The Breakfast Club

My daughter saw most of The Breakfast Club a few weeks ago. Now she understands why out of no where I will shout, "I wanna be an air force ranger."

jo, a bit of trivia on The Breakfast Club. The joke that Judd Nelson's character is telling while crawling through the ductwork was never meant to have a punchline. (I'm a *huge* fan of IMDb. Love reading the trivia...)

I have three of the Bratpack movies: The Breakfast Club, Weird Science and Sixteen Candles.

Favorite retro movie? Hell, that's a tough one. I really couldn't say. Depends on my mood I guess.

Cool trivia, Clarissa.

I forgot about Steel Magnolias &
Tootsie. Love those.

I don't know that it's the best, but someone has to throw The Lost Boys into the mix!

No one has mentioned Princess Bride. Inconceivable!
