A Tribute To The Cinematic Bullies Of The 1980s

There were few better character archetypes formed in the 1980s than the bully. They were jocks, they were popular, and they treated anyone who wasn't like garbage. They were entirely exaggerated and completely sadistic, but it only made it sweeter when the nerdy hero ended up on top in the end. If it weren't for some of the greatest bullies, we wouldn't have some of our greatest cinematic heroes.

In tribute, The Huffington Post has created a montage of the best tormenters from that decade, doing what they do best: giving wedgies, flipping cafeteria trays, breaking electronics and shouting insults. The champions are all here, from Ogre of Revenge of the Nerds to Chet Donnelly in Weird Science. Check out the video below and try to resist punching your monitor. From personal experience, it's hard to write articles about movie compilations with a cracked screen.
