    "I was looking for some good 80s comedies to watch the last weekend when I was sick and just wanted to veg out on the couch. National Lampoon's vacation is a classic that I had totally forgotten about, but I was able to rent it on Prime and watch it immediately this weekend which was fantastic. I love Chevy Chase and Beverly D'angelo and felt like I had a blast from the past, which helped me feel better much faster."

    "I can't believe it's been so many years since this came out! I still remember Cameron's wigging out with the Ferrari, and it's tainted me on them to do this day. But, also, Ferris' girlfriend in that hot bathing suit. I can't remember her name... the actresses. I should look that up. The bad thing about loving these old 80s movies is I'm darn near in my 80s and I can't remember nothing!"

    "One of the best 80s comedies, remade! Ghostbusters is an iconic comedy that is still referenced in media today! However, this is not the 80s comedy starring Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray. However, this is a fun take on the classic starring a hit comedic cast of incredibly talented (and hilarious) women!"

    "I have never really been a fan of Back to the Future. The acting in it and the special effects just don't do it for me. I would rather watch almost any other movie from the 80s."
