And as I watched the movie Real Genius for the 50th time last night, I realized that the movie simply isn’t a good movie.Â But for some reason it’s incredibly enjoyable to watch.Â I mean it’s not all that funny but there’s just something great about every scene in that flick.Â Personally I think it’s Val Kilmer.Â He just lights up the screen.
But there was also another thing I took out of watching Real Genius:Â Kilmer’s T-Shirts.Â They’re amazing.Â And it made me realize that there were some characters in 80′s movies that wore some amazing T-Shirts that if I had the chance to own, I probably would.
From Booger to Styles, here are T-Shirts from 80′s comedies movies that I need to own.
High on Stress – Revenge of the Nerds
I have to say that Give me Head Till I’m Dead is great but High on Stress is also money.Â Though I couldn’t find a screen shot of Greasy Tony’s.Â That one was probably my favorite.
I Love Toxic Waste -Real Genius
This is one of two that I thought were awesome from Real Genius.Â It’s not even that the shirt is so great, it’s that Kilmer character is incredible and if only I could wear that shirt in a setting so amazingly non conducive to having it on, I’d jump at the chance.
Senior Pizza – Loverboy
I don’t know about you guys, but I thought Loverboy was incredible.Â And what better a shirt than Dempsey’s Senior Pizza shirt.Â “Extra Anchovies?”
Bushwood CC – Caddyshack
Noonan’s caddy shirt is pretty money but I like D’Annunzio’s better with the sleeves off.
What are you looking at Dicknose? – Teen Wolf
Styles!Â I’m not sure which takes the cake here.Â This shirt or Booger’s “Give me Head till I’m dead.”Â Tough call.
One in the Oven – Police Academy
Oh Stevie Guttenberg!Â What a funny guy!Â Love this shirt.
Surf Nicaragua – Real Genius
Where the hell did this shirt come from?Â Amazing.
Beacon High School – Teen Wolf
Matt Adler on the right is wearing it.Â What the hell ever happened to that dude?Â I loved the movie North Shore.
Death Before Disco – Stripes
You gotta love a young Judge Reinhold sporting this shirt after the strip club incident.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
