Policeacademy_1 As our list of 80 Worst Movies of the 80s marches on, you might be noticing a trend: a lack of sequels. That's because you could almost create an entirely separate list of the worst sequels of the 80s. (You could also create a whole list for Steve Guttenberg.) So until the regular list of bad movies returns from break, consider this a warmed-up meal of leftovers.

Today's biggest losers: Millions of movie fans who wish they could take back all the money we spent over those 10 years.
