Fast Times At Ridgemont High would be my choice 8)
It's a true story and was lived and written by Cameron Crowe (who also happens to be married to Nancy Wilson of Heart).

Here's a site for 80s movies:

Not my faves. But, here's some that are very cliche':
St. Elmo's Fire
The Breakfast Club
Can't Buy Me Love
Risky Business
An Officer and a Gentleman
Beverly Hills Cop
Nightmare on Elm Street

thanks folks, this was'n interesting read... :D yeah, The Goonies was cool stuff, I love those 80s teenage movies, usually full of cliches... but the Chevy Chase things are pretty good either ...
...or Flashdance (although that kinda actions ain't my taste ... just the air) and Rambo ... hey, anyone seen "Christine"(??), that guy with his jealous car (ain't talkin' 'bout Knightrider)... ?

Footloose ... than you also like Dirty Dancing?? (although it's more or less 60s charm ... but the soundtrack's well done)

Believe it or not, I've never seen Dirty Dancing. I'm not a big Patrick Swayze fan.
