Top 5 Preppy '80s Movie Villains

From Entertainment Weekly.

James Spader as Steff in Pretty in Pink

Spader oozes disdain and smarm so well in this role, you wish the movie were real so you could kick his ass.

William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence in The Karate Kid

He gets a lifetime achievement award for jerkiness in Karate, Back to School and Just One of The Guys. The prep villain against who all others must be measured. Sweep the leg! Yes, Sensai.

Ted McGinley as Stan Gable in Revenge of the Nerds

The notorious show-killer as ultimate frat boy Stan Gable. You gotta love that sweater-around-the-neck look. "That's my pie!"

Craig Sheffer as Hardy Jenns in Some Kind of Wonderful

All I remember about this movie is when Mary
Three-names Whatsherface tells Lea Thompson, "You break his heart, I'll break your face," which could be the lamest line ever delivered on film. Hard to believe Sheffer is the same guy who played milquetoast Norman MacLeod in A River Runs Through It.

Aaron Dozier as Roy Stalin in Better Off Dead

The thinking man's prepster villain, he even has a badass name: Roy Stalin. I never saw this movie, so insert your own witty commentary here.
