Summary
The Breakfast Club: "An iconic portrait of 1980s American high school life. When Saturday detention started, they were simply the Jock, the Princess, the Brain, the Criminal and the Basket Case, but by that afternoon they had become closer than any of them could have imagined."--Amazon.com
The 'Burbs: "Ray Peterson would like nothing better than to spend a quiet week's vacation in his suburban home, drinking beer and watching TV. But, spurred on by his two friends' spinning of boyish paranoid fantasies about their reclusive neighbors, the Klopeks, the usually down-to-earth Ray begins to suspect his idyllic neighborhood has been invaded by an evil force, to the point where he and his friends become psychotically nosey."--Amazon.com
Dragnet: "The equally-straight-laced and "by the book" nephew of Joe Friday must work with his more laid-back partner to solve a mystery."--IMDB.com
Fast times at Ridgemont High: "A group of Southern California high school students are enjoying their most important subjects: sex, drugs, and rock n' roll."--IMDB.com
Fletch: "Irwin "Fletch" Fletcher, a newspaper reporter who changes his identity more often than his underwear. While working on a drug exposé, he stumbles onto a scam that gets him up to his byline in murder, police corruption and forbidden romance. For this ace newsman, it'll be the story of the year, if he can only stay alive till the deadline." -- Amazon.com
The great outdoors: "When an uninvited and unwelcome family suddenly arrives to join their relatives for a summer of relaxation, the results are anything but restful. Chet Ripley's plans for a quiet vacation at a lakeside resort quickly take a turn when his obnoxious brother-in-law, Roman Craig, and his snooty family appear unannounced and ready to join for a season of "fun" in the sun. Unfortunately, the only thing these two in-laws have in common is their intense dislike for each other. Soon, it's brother-in-law against brother-in-law in an uproarious and hilarious fight to the finish!"--Amazon.com
The secret of my success: "A talented young man can't get an executive position without rising through the ranks, so he comes up with a shortcut, which also benefits his love life."--IMDB.com
Uncle Buck: "As an idle, good-natured bachelor, Uncle Buck is the last person you would think of to watch the kids. However, during a family crisis, he is suddenly left in charge of his nephew and nieces. Unaccustomed to suburban life, fun-loving Uncle Buck soon charms his younger relatives Miles and Maizy with his hefty cooking and his new way of doing the laundry. His carefree style does not impress everyone though - especially his rebellious teenage niece, Tia, and his impatient girlfriend, Chanice. With a little bit of luck and a lot of love, Uncle Buck manages to surprise everyone."--Amazon.com
Weird science: "Join two socially challenged computer whizzes as they set out to create the "perfect woman". Like a computer-generated fairy godmother, the duo's heavenly creation guides the pair through the pleasures and pitfalls of teenage life."--Amazon.com
The wizard: "Corey refuses to let his emotionally disturbed younger brother Jimmy be institutionalized, and the two run away together. They soon join forces with a resourceful girl, who notices that Jimmy has a special talent: he is a "wizard" at video games and gets the high score on absolutely everything he plays. Evading their parents and a sinister bounty hunter, the trio head for a climactic showdown at the video game championships in California."--Amazon.com
