About This Quiz

In 2016, Netflix released an original series called "Stranger Things," and fans went wild for the series' throwback '80s vibe. If "Stranger Things" left you feeling seriously nostalgic for the '80s, take a chill pill; the '80s nostalgia lives on thanks to plenty of classic films released during the decade -- particularly when it comes to comedies.

The decade of big hair, Hammer pants and the Walkman brought us some seriously funny films. Some were simply vehicles for legendary comedians, like Eddie Murphy, John Belushi or John Candy. Others were epic parodies, such as "Airplane!," "Spaceballs" or "This is Spinal Tap." Even more '80s comedies took advantage of the teen movie craze of the decade, pairing John Hughes with Molly Ringwald and other members of the Brat Pack for onscreen magic. 

No matter what your comedic style, there's at least one '80s film that will leave you rolling right out of your tight-rolled jeans. Think you can recognize the funniest '80s films to ever hit the big screen? Take our quiz to find out!
