25 From 80: My Favorite Films Of 1980 (25 movies items)

"After experiencing the shakedown that has become typical on the grounds of Lake View High School, the new kid on the block decides enough is enough, and seeks to hire the "creepy" kid that everyone else fears, to protect him and his fellow school chums from the oppressing ruffian and his gang of thugs. This particular decade was one that featured many a John Hughes film about the last years of adolescent learning. And even though My Bodyguard doesn't have the Hughes moniker attached to it,"

" Watched February 8th - Netflix Streaming - Rewatch "Moody, I'd like you to meet my bodyguard, anything you want to say to me you talk to him first - Now what was that you were saying?" - Clifford Peache My Bodyguard is the dream movie for anybody who was bullied when they were in school. It is about getting even with bullies and that part of the story is told very well, a Pre-Outsiders Matt Dillon plays the bully and plays him well - he was so unlikeable that I couldn't wait for him to get hi"

This was before the various school shootings that makes this film seem almost insulting in its trite handling of the bully situation. Ah, but the 'not so innocent 80's' when teen suicides where at an all time high and my generation helped coin the phrase 'suicide pact' while the band Wham pranced around the stage with "Choose Life" t-shirts. It was a horrible era. So, this is very much a 'family film' bordering "
