The Gotta Get Out Movies of 1985

September 13, 1985 is the day in Like You Like It when our characters escape the confines of the school hall for the fun of the Arden Mall. They must have been feeling the "Gotta Get Out" zeitgeist of 1985 - so many movies told stories of great adventures, of getting lost in a new world and various kinds of escapes. What are your favorite "Gotta Get Out" movies?

After Hours

In a pre-cell phone world with busted payphones, Griffin Dunne needs to make a call. Catherine O'Hara is there to "help" in Martin Scorsese's comedy.

Desperately Seeking Susan

When it comes to air-dryers, this movie is iconic, with Dana Carvey's Opportunity Knocks as a close second.


Witness is a movie starring Patti LuPone. It also has a subplot about Harrison Ford as her brother living in an Amish community.

Lost in America

After seeing this movie starring Albert Brooks and Julie Hagerty, you will never use the words "nest" and "egg" in the same sentence.
