About This Quiz

The '80s were filled with movies centered around rebelling against societal norms and coming-of-age stories. We also did a bit of time-traveling and met an alien who seemed to really like Reese's Pieces. There were stories of treasure hunting, busting some ghosts, daredevil pilots and kids who became really good at karate. 

We'll assume you aren't from another planet or visiting us from an alternate timeline. That narrows it down to movies that were set in everyday life. Let's find out which one was telling the story of your life.

If you've ever found yourself in an all-day detention on a Saturday, or you've got an authority figure that seems to hold a grudge against you, there's a story about the creation of some unlikely friendships that is looking pretty good as your match.

Maybe yours is a story of being a part of a solid group of friends. If you've ever discovered a dead body out in the woods or raced over a bridge, narrowly avoiding death by train, then we've definitely got an '80s classic that's all yours.

Perhaps you went to summer camp and you really just wanted to learn how to dance. If you've rebelled against your parent's wishes and engaged in a "forbidden dance," then we're sure that you've had the time of your life.

There are so many great stories that just might be yours. The lights are dimming in the theater, and the curtain is opening up. Let's get this show underway.
