About This Quiz

Think of all the great '80s movie's couples. Sally and Harry, of course in "When Sally Met Harry." Then there were Lloyd and Ione in "Say Anything," Maverick and Charlotte in "Top Gun," Zack and Paula in "An Officer And A Gentlemen," and so many others! In the movies, the star-crossed lovers were so relatable because they weren't perfect, they had flaws that made them well... human. And their issues were recognizable, from not wanting to trap a man into marriage with pregnancy, ("An Officer and a Gentleman") to dealing with a childhood where you were given material goods instead of love ("Breakfast Club").

To choose the '80s movie couple that is best suited to you and your sweetheart, we'll ask you a series of questions about your likes, dislikes, social interactions and opinions. We'll ask similar questions about your significant other as well. Once we have your answers, we'll match your real-life relationship with the movie couple that best represents the two of you. All we ask is that you answer the questions as accurately as possible. Find out now if we got it right. If we do, we wouldn't mind if you celebrated with some "Dirty Dancing."
