Released in 1993, Mel Brooks' 'Robin Hood: Men in Tights' put a satirical spin on the classic tale of Robin Hood, a man who, along with his merry band of misfits, robs from the rich and gives to the poor in defiance of the cruel Prince John. The riotous spoof featured a charming ensemble cast, including Cary Elwes as Robin Hood and a young Dave Chappelle as one of his sidekicks, and although critics didn't love the film as much as Brooks' earlier works, it quickly gained a cult following. 21 years later, we revisit the cast of this comedy classic and see what they're up to now.
Where Are They Now?
Released in 1986, Tony Scott's 'Top Gun' starred Tom Cruise as a young pilot nicknamed Maverick who, along with his pal Goose (Anthony Edwards), gets the chance to train at the Navy's prestigious Fighter Weapons School at Miramar in San Diego, also known as "Top Gun." The action-packed film was a rousing success, thanks in part to Cruise's charisma and rapidly increasing star power, assisted by co-stars like Val Kilmer and Kelly McGillis and a hit soundtrack. Twenty-eight years later, we revisit the cast of this '80s classic and see what they're up to now.
In 1985, John Hughes introduced audiences to 'The Breakfast Club,' a coming-of-age story about five teens from different cliques, all sentenced to a Saturday of detention, where together they discover that they're worth more than their high school stereotypes as they realize they have more in common than previously thought. Featuring members of Hughes' beloved Brat Pack, the film became an instant and enduring classic that still resonates among fans both old and young. Now, almost 30 years later, we revisit the cast to see what they're up to these days.
Released in 1991, 'Soapdish' starred Sally Field as an aging soap opera star challenged by a bitter rival and struggling to retain her role in the spotlight. Bolstered by co-stars like Robert Downey Jr. and Kevin Kline, this satirical comedy took audiences behind the scenes of the world of daytime soaps. Twenty-three years later, we revisit the cast of this delightful classic and see what they're up to now.
Over the course of 10 seasons, we watched our favorite 'Friends' date (and date, and date), often with disastrous and hilarious and heartwarming results. It's hard to believe the show ended 10 years ago, and to celebrate the anniversary of the ending of one of the greatest sitcoms of all time, we're revisiting the dating history of Monica, Chandler, Joey, Rachel, Ross, and Phoebe. Join us as we take a look back at some of their most memorable significant others, and see where those actors are now. You won't find Jon Favreau or Paul Rudd on this list -- we know what those guys are up to -- but let's check in with Janice and Mona, Paolo and Tag, and, yes, even that awful Roger.
Way back in 1991, Nickelodeon introduced young audiences to 'Clarissa Explains It All,' starring Melissa Joan Hart as a quirky teen girl who lives with her family, the Darlings, and often addresses the audience directly while dealing with typical problems like school, boys, pimples and her annoying little brother Ferguson. It's hard to believe it's been 20 years since we last hung out with Clarissa and her BFF Sam, so join us as we revisit the cast of 'Clarissa Explains It All' (including some very special guest stars) before they were famous and see what they're up to these days.
Released in 1989, 'Troop Beverly Hills' starred Shelley Long as a self-absorbed shopaholic whose wealthy husband leaves her, so she decides to use her socialite skills to become the den mother of her daughter's girl scout troop to prove she can follow through on her commitments. With a supporting cast of bright young stars, 'Troop Beverly Hills' wasn't a huge hit at the box office, but amassed a cult following over the years, particularly among young women. Twenty-five years later, we look back at the cast of this beloved classic and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1985, 'St. Elmo's Fire' was one of the prominent Brat Pack coming-of-age films, featuring stars like Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe, Demi Moore and Judd Nelson in a story of a group of friends who've just graduated from college and are trying to come to terms with the responsibilities of adulthood. Directed by Joel Schumacher and with a hit theme song on the film's soundtrack, the movie was a smashing success with audiences and became an instant -- and enduring -- classic. Almost 30 years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved flick and see what they're up to now.
Released in 2002 and based on the book of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis, 'The Rules of Attraction' featured an ensemble cast including hot young stars like James van der Beek and Jessica Biel in an interweaving, darkly comedic series of narratives set at a New Hampshire college. Van der Beek's character, Sean Bateman, was the younger brother of Patrick Bateman, the lead character from Ellis' 'American Psycho,' immortalized on screen by Christian Bale just a couple of years prior. While 'The Rules of Attraction' wasn't the hit that 'American Psycho' was with audiences, the film went on to quickly gain cult status. 12 years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1990, director Tony Scott's 'Days of Thunder' starred Tom Cruise as a young, up-and-coming stock car driver who gets his big break and a chance to compete at the top level. The first of three films to pair Cruise with Nicole Kidman, 'Days of Thunder' received mixed reviews from critics but was a smashing success at the box office thanks to the charisma of its leading man. As film critic Roger Ebert noted, the film had many elements of previous Cruise movies, which had developed a sort of formula for success. Twenty-four years later, we revisit the cast of this classic and see what they're up to now.
