The Top 10 Douchebag Villains from 80s Teen Movies


06. Hardy Jenns in Some Kind of Wonderful

Hardy Jenns from Some Kind of Wonderful
Hardy Jenns was rich, handsome and popular so you’d think he would be a happy guy. But nope, Hardy was a total dick to everyone around him from his lackey friends to his girlfriend  and to Eric Stolz’s sensitive but very unpopular Keith Nelson. And the fact that he was played by Craig Sheffer (who has a face that I have always wanted to punch) didn’t make him any more likable.

  1. even though zabka made more appearances, james spader wears the scary bully crown for that steely sociopath glare of his. you were spot on with your imagined extrapolation of his life after high school. #willies lol!!!

    1. I only gave Zabka the top spot for his Karate kid role because i was not actively rooting for him to win like I was for Spader’s Steff in Pretty in Pink. I got swept up by Spader’s creepy charisma while I couldn’t wait for Johnny to get his comeuppance.

  2. Man there’s a really meta movie here somewhere following these characters instead of the ‘protagonists’ . . .

    1. Well I know for a fact that I preferred Johnny to Daniel-san on Karate Kid…I think a movie following Johnny around as he gets mentally abused by Sensei Kreese would have been great.

    You forgot Spader in Less than Zero. Any drug dealing college kid who pimps out a straight druggie to gay Johns is a royal D-bag villain.

      2. Y’know I don’t think I have ever seen Hot Dog the Movie; might have to give that one a watch since it sounds like I am missing some primo 80s douchebag action.
