Talk like an '80s Pirate Day: Top 10 pirate movies of the '80s (a.k.a. "They had 10 pirate movies in the '80s?!?)

19

September

Talk Like a Pirate Day? No, thanks. How about "Watch 10 Pirate Movies Day?" I can get enthusiastic about that. I'm betting very few of you, if anyone, remembers the top pirate movie on today's list, the John Hughes-penned epic flick Nate and Hayes.

TOP 10 PIRATE MOVIES OF THE '80s:

10. THE PIRATE MOVIE (1982): Kristy McNichol, Christopher Atkins. "I'm sorry! I didn't mean to deflower you!" [Check out 'Pumping and Blowing']
