Movie Flashback…

So I was born back in 1982… and recently I’ve been going back and watching quite a few movies that were made in the 80’s.

Volunteers, Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks, 1985

First, it was Volunteers (starring Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, and Jim Candy.) For those of you who haven’t seen it, or don’t remember it, Tom Hanks plays a gambling college grad who takes a friends place in the Peace Corp to avoid gambling debts. This was also the film that brought Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson together as a couple.

ROMANCING THE STONE, Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, 1984.

Next, I moved on to Romancing the Stone & Jewel of the Nile (starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner & Danny DeVito.) These two films came out in 1984 and 1985 respectively. Jewel of the Nile is the sequel, and I can’t quite decide which one is my favorite.

Big Business Bette Midler, Lily Tomlin

My latest 1980’s film was Big Business. It stars Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin and is about two sets of twins who get switched at birth. You can’t help but laugh throughout the film and I love¬†how it all ended up.

What are some of your favorite movies from the 80’s?
