1. The Outsiders (1983)
You can't win. You know that, don't you? It doesn't matter if you whip us, you'll still be where you were before, at the bottom. And we'll still be the lucky ones at the top with all the breaks. It doesn't matter. Greasers will still be Greasers and Socs will still be Socs. It doesn't matter.

Andrew Clark: ...and an athlete...
Allison Reynolds: ...and a basket case...

3. St. Elmo's Fire (1985)
Jules, y'know, honey... this isn't real. You know what it is? It's St. Elmo's Fire. Electric flashes of light that appear in dark skies out of nowhere. Sailors would guide entire journeys by it, but the joke was on them... there was no fire. There wasn't even a St. Elmo. They made it up. They made it up because they thought they needed it to keep them going when times got tough, just like you're making up all of this. We're all going through this. It's our time at the edge.

4. Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)
Mr. Hand: Why are you continuously late for this class, Mr. Spicoli? Why do you shamelessly waste my time like this?
Jeff Spicoli: [long pause, but then with complete truth in his answer] I don't know.
Mr. Hand: [Mr. Hand goes to blackboard and writes the words 'I Don't Know', then underlines them]
Mr. Hand: I like that. 'I Don't Know.' That's nice.
Mr. Hand: 'Mr. Hand, will I pass this class?' Gee, Mr. Spicoli, I don't know! You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to leave your words right up here for all my classes to enjoy, giving you full credit of course, Mr. Spicoli.
Jeff Spicoli: All right!

Dear Governor Axtell.
I've heard that you will give 200 dollars for my head. Perhaps we should meet and talk. I am at the Juarez village at the border. Send 3 men, and instruct them not to shoot, as I am unarmed. In short, Sir; I surrender.
Your obedient servant William H. Bonney.

Elfflame's rating:


Movies chosen were based on two things:
* They had to have at least three Brat-Pack Actors (see explanation below)
* They had to have come out in the 80s

The Original Brat Pack is culled from three movies:
The Outsiders
The Breakfast Club
St Elmo's Fire

Other actors have to have acted with the main Brat Pack at least once.

Four tiers of actors
The central Brat Pack, who were in at least 3 films of the period
The outer Brat Pack, who were in at least one of the original Brat Pack movies above
The Secondary Brat Pack, who were in at least 3 Brat Pack films
and the outer ring, who acted in at least 1 Brat Pack film

Here's the list of the Brat Pack themselves.

Feel free to put forth your suggestions, if you think there's a major movie I've missed. The list seems a lot smaller than I expected. And a lot of movies I'd have placed on the list didn't even rank, according to the above criterion.

Quote suggestions for each film quite welcome.

would love to see a similar list for the Frat Pack
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at May 4 20:46
I propose some additions, maybe with an asterisk:
1} Film : Racing With the Moon (1984), featuring Sean Penn, Nick Cage, and Elizabeth McGovern... she in 80s worked with Bacon, Mickey Rourke, Hutton, Dillon, and Forest Whitaker...

2} Actor: Casey Siemaszko! - The forgotten Packer... worked on *three* of the Brat films above, including Bad Boys (major role), Class and Young Guns. Plus he worked with Thompson on the Back to Future movies, with Kieffer in Stand By Me, with Masterson and Rumble Fish's Larry Fishburne in Coppola's Gardens of Stone, with Broderick in Biloxi Blues, etc etc. Casey belongs here more than Alan Ruck, Cryer, Broderick, or even Stoltz.

3} Forest Whitaker? - Worked in Fast Times, plus in Platoon, Color of Money with Cruise, Johnny Handsome with M. Rourke. Others maybe in this "near miss" category: Aidan Quinn, D.B. Sweeney (with Cusack & Sheen in Eight Men Out), Craig Sheffer, Virginia Madsen, Johnny Depp (Platoon, Benny & Joon), Matthew Modine (w/ Cage in Birdy, w/ several others in 1990 Memphis Belle).

wikipedia has a list cross referencing all of the movies and actors under their heading of ''brat pack'' (actors) i was very into that group of movies in the mid'80s. most of these movies are still watchable---

Ferris Bueller aside, I never really liked Brat Pack films in general for some reason. Was it because I was born in the early 90's?

Very nice list!! It's one I'll be using as a reference, I believe.
