- 9 to 5

- Coal Miner's Daughter
- Ordinary People
- On Golden Pond
- Chariots of Fire
- Absence of Malice
- The best little whorehouse in Texas
- Terms of Endearment

Excellent performance by Whoopi Goldberg and a good effort by Spielberg.
- Ruthless People
: I love this movie!!! Danny DeVito and Bette Midler are really funny in this one
- Three Men and a Baby
- The Secret of my Success
: Saw this on an aeroplane. I found it boring at first, but managed to like it in the end

- The Witches of Eastwick
: I can't believe this was an 80s movie!
- Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
: Loved it!!!

Morgan Freeman is probably the only actor who features in only
good, mature films (e.g. The Shawshank Redemption).
So anyone got any good 80s movies recommendations?
