The perfect way to remember the 80's.
30 June 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

VH1's creation of "I Love the 80's" has it all. The show functions like a documentary, with music and TV stars commenting on a wide range of topics: television shows, cartoons, bands, movies, styles as well as historical events that all took place during the beloved decade. There is an hour long episode for each year, packed with all of the listed subjects. The shows also have special segments for every year: the Hunks, Babes, Births, 'Then & Now', 'Mister and Miss' and 'Make-out Songs'. The show helps viewers reminisce while hilarious commentators like Michael Ian Black, Mo Rocca, Hal Sparks and others point out the ridiculous aspects on the topic at hand.

Favorite quotes include Donal Logue remembering Bryan Adam's "Summer of '69", saying "Wait a second, you're full of sh*t, you were like, four." And also Michael Ian Black recalling Molly Ringwald movies saying "Every movie starts off with Molly Ringwald being upset about something, and then I come in and have sex with her."

Funny, smart and even informative on what you might have missed during the eighties.
