She’s the Man
Amanda Bynes portrays Violia Hastings, a soccer-obsessed
girl who spends most of the film undercover at her boarding school’s rival
trying to pass for her brother Sebastian. The movie has Channing Tatum in it,
too, which is just another reason it made it onto our list.
13 Going on 30
All Jenna wanted to be was “30, flirty and thriving” and
before she knew it, she got her wish. Thanks to the magic wishing dust her BGF
gave her for her 13th b-day, Jenna is thrown into an adult world and discovers
that being an adult isn’t as special as she thought it would be.
10 Things I Hate About You
This movie is all about a bittersweet teen romance.
Katarina, a well rounded but vicious girl lets down her guard and allows a
rough around the edges boy Patrick into her life. She begrudgingly finds
herself falling for Partick amidst a cast of amusing high school characters.
This flick is probably the most peculiar one on the list.
There’s a llama, a freestyle dance during a school election (Vote for Pedro!)
and tons of just plain weird occurrences in this endearing film about a
socially awkward teen named Napoleon and his family and friends.
More than likely, you’ve read this novel by S.E. Hinton in
school. This story might center on teens in 1965, but it’s still completely
relevant today. The Greasers (the have-nots) are constantly battling the Socs
(the haves), which is a classic storyline we can all relate to.
Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist
Girl + boy + music = love. This movie, based on a book by
David Levithan, shows that music can definitely bring people together, and
sometimes it’s in the most unexpected ways.
You know that older boy at school who everyone is totally in
love with? Well, for Julie Corky that boy is Steve Phillips. In this movie,
Julie and her pals spend one eventful night traipsing across town on a
scavenger hunt to beat out the mean girls to secure a coveted high school lunch
spot. In the end, Julie wins much more than she bargained for.
Two words: Zac. Efron. OK, those are really names, not words…but
you catch our drift. The film follows a 37-year-old dad who becomes a teen
again after a crazy chance accident. Like 13
Going On 30, this movie will teach you to truly appreciate your time as a
What A Girl Wants
Daphne is an NYC girl who lives a meh life with her mom. But
her life becomes significantly less dull when she flies to London to get to
know her dad, who just so happens to be royalty. NBD. Daphne meets a genuine
and gorgeous guy while she’s across the pond, too. Not bad for a teen, eh?
Drive Me Crazy
It’s been a few years, but we’re still not over how
awesomely sassy and hilarious this film is. Juno MacGuff has been stuck with
the unexpected reality of teenage pregnancy. But with the help of her family
and BFF, she handles it incredibly gracefully considering the circumstances.
Never Been Kissed
Never been smooched? That’s OK, neither has Josie Geller. She’s
an everyday newspaper reporter who has never had a serious relationship, but
that changes after Josie goes undercover as a high school student for a story.
Once Josie starts a new, her personal and
professional life start to flourish.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Now & Then
This film is similar to Sisterhood
in that it follows four friends: Sam, Teeny, Chrissy and Roberta, but
that’s where the similarities end. The film begins with the four friends in
present day and then flashes back to a tumultuous life changing summer of 1970
where the girls do a lot of growing up.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Another classic movie from the ’80s, Ferris Bueller inspired
all of us to have a little more fun with our lives. We’re not saying you should
skip school (please, don’t do that!), but remember that it’s important to cut
loose and have fun every once in a while. If that fun happens to involve
singing in a parade or spontaneously going to a baseball game, then so be it.
Emma Stone plays the loveable and quirky Olive Penderghast
in this movie inspired by the novel The
Scarlet Letter. Olive is a quick-witted girl who finds herself at the
middle of a school scandal. What makes this flick even cooler? Parts of it were
inspired by other movies on this list like The
Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller’s
The Breakfast Club
This is basically the ultimate ’80s movie. One of the
necessities of a teen movie is a solid group of friends, and while the varied students
that show up to detention one Saturday morning aren’t exactly eager to befriend
one another, they all eventually bond over the trials and tribulations of being
You didn’t actually think we were going to forget about Mean Girls did you? That would be so not fetch of us, babe! While we totally
heart how quick and snarky Cady and Regina can be, it’s really the deeper
friendships at the end of the film that shine through, making it one of the
best teen flicks of all time.
