Excalibur.  That was an 80's movie.  And it has Patrick Stewart, Ciarin Hinds, Liam Neeson, and Gabriel Byrne in it!

Martin would go on to star in Crocodile II: Death Swamp.  I think I would like to find this movie.

I've actually seen this film.  It's not as bad as you'd hope it be, though.

Damn.  I was hoping for Anaconda-like levels of cheesiness.

You love the '80's?  What a coincidence - I hate everything about them!  Including myself (born in 1988)!
Correction: the coat hanger should be upside down.

lot of riffable movies, this rifftrax movement has a bright future
my favorite suggestions were
Short Circuit,
Breakfast Club(someone mentioned molly ringwald)
and Crocodile Dundee

How about ET, Blues Brothers, Roger Rabbit, and Ghost Busters

Mazes and Monsters

Indescribably awful, but I'm not sure how easy to find it is...

  What? No one is mentioning the teen-angst-I'm-cool-because-I-work-in-a-record-store movies of the 80's? For shame.

You're right! Robocop has been largely undiscussed. What isn't riffable about a part-man part-robot all-cop!? :^)

ET and Robocop both have my vote  8)

Actually, pretty much anything by Spielberg in the 80s ought to do it.

I have Two suggestions...

War Games

and

The Manhattan Project

because we all know,  Nuclear War/Weapons, Robot voices, and John Lithgow are funny!

Speaking of Crocodiles, How about Crocodile Dundee? That was '80s right? :^)

And has the name Yahoo Serious been brought up on these forums yet?

Thankfully no!

We must all adhere to the 1989 International Accord of Lisbon that bans any and all mentions of a certain Mr. Serious (He whose name must not be uttered)
Lest you be tried for crimes against humanity.
Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.

How about riffing 80s films starring the artist formerly known as Prince?
