We love '80s action flicks for the campy effects, cheesy one-liners, and unintended humor. Whether it was intended or not, every '80s action film has that one scene (or several) that makes us laugh out loud. Even films that were meant to be taken seriously struggled to keep us from being amused at the silly dialogue or hilarious action cues. Action films to this date are still trying to replicate the cheeky humor of their predecessors.
From Commando to The Terminator, (so practically any film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger) we eagerly await that one-liner that's going to make us giggle, reminding us why we adore '80s action films so dearly. Here are some surprisingly funny moments in '80s action movies.
