I'm not too impressed with that lineup.  I guess I'll take THE UNTOUCHABLES, ROBOCOP and BROADCAST NEWS.  Here are some I like from outside the top 20:

THE PRINCESS BRIDE
RAISING ARIZONA
ROBOT CARNIVAL
EVIL DEAD II
NEAR DARK
WINGS OF DESIRE
BAD TASTE
BLOOD DINER
HARD TICKET TO HAWAII

DOMESTIC GROSSES #1–20

01. $167,780,960 - Three Men and a Baby (Not half bad comedy fluff but certainly shouldn't top this list.)
02. $156,645,693 - Fatal Attraction (Pretty good thriller, maybe a tad overrated.)
03. $153,665,036 - Beverly Hills Cop II (Pretty funny sequel, has its moments.)
04. $123,922,370 - Good Morning, Vietnam (Had an hard time finishing this honestly.)
05. $080,640,528 - Moonstruck (Haven't seen)
06. $076,270,454 - The Untouchables (Haven't seen)
07. $066,995,879 - The Secret of My Success (Loved this as a teen, thought it was quite funny then. Not sure it would hold up with me now though.)
08. $065,673,233 - Stakeout (I recall really enjoying this more than I expected. Haven't seen it in ages though.)
09. $065,207,127 - Lethal Weapon (Pretty good.)
10. $063,766,510 - The Witches of Eastwick (Has some cool moments but really isn't that great overrall.)

11. $063,446,382 - Dirty Dancing (What was the big deal with this? Recall the craze surrounding it. Thought it was overrated when I saw it.)
12. $059,735,548 - Predator (Pretty good, frightened the crap out of me as a teen. Deserves major points for that. Actually gave me nightmares for weeks.)
13. $057,915,972 - Throw Momma From the Train (I really like this one. May even be underrated.)
14. $057,387,516 - Dragnet (Nothing special. The TV series was much better.)
15. $054,215,416 - La Bamba (Never got what the big deal was with this either. Seemed overrated to me.)
16. $053,424,681 - Robocop (The best film on this list IMO)
17. $052,864,741 - Outrageous Fortune (Haven't seen)
18. $051,249,404 - Broadcast News (Haven't seen)
19. $051,185,897 - The Living Daylights (Not too bad)
20. $050,504,655 - Eddie Murphy Raw (Haven't seen)

Broadcast News is really good.  Dragnet isn't good, but it's fun. 

It's a travishamockery that Princess Bride didn't make the top 20.  Easily the best movie of the year.

Fatal Attraction is one of my favorite movies of all time. a horror movie that can and no doubt does happen. When Glenn CLose goes "I will not be IGNORED" it makes your stomach sink.

01. $167,780,960 - Three Men and a Baby
Barely remember it.

02. $156,645,693 - Fatal Attraction
The Glenn Close character was a whole lot more sympathetic than the movie realized, and the Michael Douglass character a whole lot less.  I'd rather have seen a movie about the jerkass getting sued for child support and losing his family because he couldn't keep it in his pants while his wife was out of town.

03. $153,665,036 - Beverly Hills Cop II
A huuuuuuuuge step down from the first one.

04. $123,922,370 - Good Morning, Vietnam
Didn't mean anything to me at the time.

05. $080,640,528 - Moonstruck
???

06. $076,270,454 - The Untouchables
Never cared for it, to be honest.  The part with the baby stroller rolling down the stairs was one of the most unintentionally hilarious things ever, though.

07. $066,995,879 - The Secret of My Success
???

08. $065,673,233 - Stakeout
???

09. $065,207,127 - Lethal Weapon
Pretty good.

10. $063,766,510 - The Witches of Eastwick
Strikes a nice balance between horror and comedy.

11. $063,446,382 - Dirty Dancing
No.

12. $059,735,548 - Predator
Is there a better alien monster movie?  No, I don't think so.

13. $057,915,972 - Throw Momma From the Train
Thought it was funny the first time I watched it.  Saw it on TV a couple years ago and didn't get much out of it.

14. $057,387,516 - Dragnet
A hell of a lot better than I ever thought it could be.

15. $054,215,416 - La Bamba
No.

16. $053,424,681 - Robocop
Quite possibly the best movie ever made, period.  I'm completely serious.

17. $052,864,741 - Outrageous Fortune
???

18. $051,249,404 - Broadcast News
???

19. $051,185,897 - The Living Daylights
Tim Dalton sucks as James Bond.

20. $050,504,655 - Eddie Murphy Raw
Never saw.

1987 gave me Predator and RoboCop.  Even if every other movie released that year had eaten dog turds, those two movies alone would make 1987 one of the best movie years ever.  Maybe the best.

03. $153,665,036 - Beverly Hills Cop II. This is funny. Really funny.
04. $123,922,370 - Good Morning, Vietnam This is pretty good.
09. $065,207,127 - Lethal Weapon - One of the first action movies I ever saw. Very good.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
