If there's anything that the '80s gave us, it was gratuitous nudity in just about every single teen comedy that came out. In honor of that tradition, here are the best '80s teen comedy scenes where your favorite stars got naked, ranked by you for hotness. You will also find some old shower scenes here. 

I described the movies, the context of the scenes, and then linked you out to the scenes when possible (although you can totally just Google all of them). From Phoebe Cates in Fast Times, to lesser-known gems like Hardbodies and Malibu Express, to even scenes from actually-good movies like Sixteen Candles, these are the greatest scenes where characters shed their clothes in '80s teen comedy history.

I don't have to tell you what this movie is about (it's easily one of the best stoner movies of all time) and you know exactly what scene I'm talking about. If you don't, then here it is. That's Phoebe Cates.

She married to Kevin Klein, looks like this now, and is one of the hottest, if not the hottest girl the '80s had to offer. And she took her clothes off every chance she got, all over the place, non-stop. The '80s were a great place to live because everything was exactly ten million times cheesier since self-awareness hadn't been invented yet.

And, to repeat, Phoebe Cates in her teens/20s was one of the greatest parts of the '80s. She tops every one of these lists and with great reason. The mix of innocence and mischief in her eyes in every scene just steals the entire movie every time.

The Movie
This movie has all of the tropes of a teen comedy, but happens to center around a clumsy guy trying to bang a young Kelly Preston, so pretty much everyone's on board from the beginning. Because a young Kelly Preston is stupid hot. Like, stupid hot.

The Scene
A young Kelly Preston is in lace, while the guy slowly undresses her. He takes off her bra, and you can seriously hear a football stadium full of dudes just cheering. She pulls off her undergarments and boom, Kelly Preston in all her glory, who then lies down and makes out with the guy for a few minutes. Then, they do it, and it's awesome. He promises to "pull out", then doesn't; but whatever, it's the '80s so it wasn't a big deal, if the rest of this list has taught us all anything.

The Movie
Phoebe Cates tries to score a really WASPy rich dude while this one girl teases everyone in the movie. Shower scenes happen.

The Scene(s) 
Some more dudes spy on a girl when she thinks she's safe and take pictures with the flash turned off. They use a polaroid, which was common then, but today would be a hipster thing to do. She notices them in the mirror and decides to give them a show until they pull her towel off. Weirdly, nobody gets arrested and the girls aren't even super freaked out or anything, but actually kind of happy about it for some reason. Phoebe Cates is in her underwear throughout.

The female lead in the movie is former Betsy Russell who spends the whole time teasing dudes. She also rides a horse without a shirt on, while older women give her disapproving looks.

The Movie:
I could not have watched this movie more as a kid. And if I had managed that, I'm sure my parents would have sent me to some kind of psychiatrist (which, in retrospect, would have been a good decision, which means that yes, all kids should watch this movie at least 50 times).

The movie is about a pre-Scientology Tom Cruise as a teenager who tries to have some fun while his parents are away. Everything is prim and proper and perfect in his home, but as soon as they leave, you get that infamous scene of him dancing indoors pretending to be a rock star, which to some kids, will resonate more if I say "like that Heidi Klum Guitar Hero (RIP) commercial where she dances in her underwear in a living room.

The Scene(s)
He proceeds to meet this vaguely Russian woman, played by an at-the-time-still-relevant Rebecca De Mornay, who treats him like crap, but does the deed with him throughout the entire movie. She's the one you see naked all over the place the entire time. They make it seem so cool that it kinda makes you want a dangerous, unstable, emotionally unavailable blonde woman of your very own. Wait what? Oh my god. This explains a lot. (This explains a lot.) But life-changing revelations aside, the scenes are pretty awesome. Repeatedly. All the time. The train scene is particularly something that was etched into my brain as a wee lad, because I couldn't believe how poorly maintained the lights were on that thing. It was very irresponsible.
