3. "Valley Girl" 5 (my first time going all googly over Nicholas Cage)

6. "UHF" 1 (I really wanted to like this one, but Michael Richards made it even worse)
7. "Pretty In Pink" 4 (Jon Cryer and Annie Potts saved this movie IMO)

11. "License To Drive" 1 (ugh)
12. "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" 5 (claaaaaaaasic!)
