The Lost Boys (1987)

Joel Schu­macher’s vam­pire flick es­tab­lished it­self as an en­dur­ing ’80s cul­tural arte­fact and one of the most ap­peal­ing hor­ror-come­dies of all time.

Li­cense To Drive (1988)

Ac­cept­able if un­der-torqued John Hughes clone, with Haim as the un­li­censed mo­torist and Feld­man as his buddy. Cin­e­matog­ra­phy by the great Bruce Sur­tees (Dirty Harry).

Dream A Lit­tle Dream (1989)

Vice-versa movie in which Feld­man has his soul knocked out of his body. Fea­tures the best sup­port­ing cast the Coreys ever had, in­clud­ing Piper Lau­rie and Harry Dean Stan­ton.

Blown Away (1992)

DTV erotic thriller in which the Coreys form two points of a love tri­an­gle with Haim’s real-life girl­friend Ni­cole Eg­gert. Notable mainly for ex­ces­sive ex­po­sure of Haim’s hams.

Na­tional Lam­poon’s Last Re­sort (1994)

Barely watch­able mess has the pair re­lo­cat­ing from Detroit to a trop­i­cal is­land where unin­spired hi­jinks com­mence. Even Zelda ‘Poltergeist’ Ru­bin­stein can’t save this.

Dream A Lit­tle Dream 2 (1995)

Any charm the orig­i­nal had has long evap­o­rated in this in­sipid re­tread in­volv­ing ‘mag­i­cal sun­glasses’.

Busted (1997)

“Feld­man was hurl­ing out or­ders while two big-breasted bim­bos mas­saged him,” Haim re­called of Feld­man’s di­rec­to­rial de­but, a mirth­less Po­lice Acad­emy knock-off.

Dickie Roberts: For­mer Child Star (2003)

There was a cer­tain in­evitabil­ity to the duo turn­ing up in David Spade’s cameo-crammed com­edy. Also fea­tures Todd Bridges, Wil­lie Aames and Gary Cole­man.

Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008)

The last time the pair would ap­pear, briefly, in a movie to­gether was in this ill-judged re-vamp of the clas­sic that started it all. Haim’s con­tri­bu­tion was rel­e­gated to a post-cred­its out­take.
