Film in the 80s pretty much rocked. Rocked so much, in fact, that pretty much every good movie is being re-made or sequelized (yes, I made that word up and yes, you wish you did too). Footloose, the re-make, just wrapped filming and now there’s talk of a Top Gun 2. I think we can all agree that Tom Cruise in the 1980s was way more desirable than he is now and so I have little hope for the sequel. But nonetheless, Maverick was a pretty suave guy. Goose was pretty cute too. Now that I think about it, I’d prefer Goose over the boring Maverick because he’s loyal, hilarious and he can totally sing. I love a man who can serenade me. Which got me thinking: what other characters from 80s movies would I want to date? A lot of them are John Hughes creations, but who can blame me?
