Stay gold Ponyboy. Stay gold.

The last film I mentioned on the previous page, Class, which featured the debut of Andrew McCarthy also starred Rob Lowe. In the 80's there was a collective group of actors known as "The Brat Pack". The core members of The Brat Pack consisted of Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Anthony Michael Hall, Emilio Estevez, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald & Ally Sheedy.  The Brat Pack made many films together and a Brat Pack film is classed by having 2 or more members of this group in them. I've mentioned some Brat Pack teen films earlier on such as The Breakfast Club, Class, Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink.

Other 80's Brat Pack teen films include:-

15) The Outsiders

16) Oxford Blues

The Brat Pack made a ton of other films together but I don't consider them to be teen films. I'll give them a quick mention if anyone is curious - St Elmo's Fire, Blue City, About Last Night..., Wisdom & Fresh Horses.

As well as making films together, they've starred in a lot of their own 80's teen flicks that aren't classed as Brat Pack films. I'll give a run-down of their individual films that I've seen but haven't previously mentioned.

17) No Small Affair

18) Square Dance

19) Tex

20) Johnny Be Good

21) Making The Grade
