If you're the kind of person who knows how to appreciate a good love story and loves to laugh, then you'll definitely be a fan of this genre. And although it has fallen in recent years, people still crave these kinds of movies. One of the decades when it was most prominent, was the 1980s and we're feeling a bit nostalgic right now. So, we're going to go back a few decades and look up some of the best rom-coms that the 1980s had to offer us and test you on them.

Oh, you read that correctly. Today, we're going to test you on how great memory is when it comes to some of the movies that ruled the screens just about 40 years ago. They all have a little bit of love and a few laughs in them, and we want to see if we can make you laugh and fall a little bit more in love with this quiz. So, we're going to show you some screenshots of these flicks, and it'll be your job to tell us which clip belongs to each movie.
