Nothing makes me happier than discovering an awesome 80’s movie I haven’t seen yet. And because one of my male lead characters in my time travel YA 1980’s romance novel kind of looks like John Cusack I’ve made a list of 80’s John Cusack films and I’m so slowly working through them.
Better off Dead was such a super nice surprise. It was pretty awesome. From the first few minutes I was giggling like a 1980’s school girl and basically, I loved it and I think you will too!
Here’s 10 reasons you aren’t Better Off Dead – because if you were dead you wouldn’t get to watch this movie… unless you were a ghost and it turns out that ghosts can come over and watch movies with you, but let’s leave that idea for the next YA trilogy.
Reason 1 – Love sick John Cusack.
Reason 2: Aviators, because the 80’s was so not just about Ray Ban Wayfarers you guys.
Reason 3 – pouty teenage John Cusack. I mean come on girls… and boys who like boys…
Reason 4 – 1980’s beauty tips… or should I say cue tips? LOL!
Reason 5 – it’s like the only movie ever made where the only way to win a girl’s heart is to ski real good.
Reason 6 – Burgers in love. ❤
Reason 7 – French exchange students who don’t quite have it fluent.
Reason 8 – Rubber glove drag races.
Reason 9 – John Cusack wearing a pig nose.
Reason 10 – The guy who actually owns the Camero John Cusack drove in the movie! (I so need a Camero!)

80’s school girl crush swoon!
