With girls named Andy and Benny, boys named Steff and Duckie, and the most epic fail of a lip-synching serenade in history. If nothing else, this film helped normalize Eighties androgyny and those weekly outings to see Rocky Horror. Watching high schoolers talk openly about class differences, then asking Andrew Dice Clay for advice, we are reminded how truly confusing it is to be a teenager.
