About This Quiz

Things were big in the '80s. Big hair, bold colors, and loud, synthesized music. Hair bands like Poison and Whitesnake were the rage. Movies made a splash, too. Unforgettable series like "Back to the Future" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark" came on the scene and thrilled us. Blockbusters like "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi" were all over movie screens, taking our breath away. The Brat Pack movies like "Sixteen Candles" and "The Breakfast Club" took teen angst to new levels. And who could forget "ET"? 

The '80s were also a time for iconic movie couples. Young love and its trials and tribulations were abundant in films like "Say Anything" and "Pretty in Pink." You had your "wrong side of the tracks" scenario and your rebel guy and preppy girl scenario, too. It all added up to lovable couples you couldn't help but root for. Remember Buttercup and Wesley? They had adventure and near-death experiences—none of it stopped them. Then you had Harry and Sally: it took them 12 years to realize they were looking for each other all along. Which '80s movie couple is your favorite? Take our quiz, and see which movie couple you and your significant other most resemble! Don't get put in a corner! Have fun!
