    Most Underrated 80's movies

    I just watched two of my favorite movies. Both are from the 80's and both never get the credit they deserve. Feel free to post your own but these two movies are some of the best the 80's had to offer. Now just to be clear, I am only talking about underrated movies, so nothing along the lines of Top Gun or Back to the Future. Those are great movies, but everyone knows and admits their greatness. These two however deserve much more respect:


    Cyclone: 1st, Jayhawk: 2nd, Hawkeye? Never!

    Wildcats - I'd say one of the more underrated football movies as well.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
