The 1950s and 1960s had "The Rat Pack." The 1980s had "The Brat Pack." These were the actors from the slew of coming-of-age films that characterized Hollywood during the decade. Think of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Sixteen Candles," "St. Elmo's Fire," "The Breakfast Club," "Pretty in Pink" and "Weird Science," and you get the picture. How many Pack members can you name? These movies featured Rob Lowe, Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Andrew McCarthy and Ally Sheedy.
