Who doesn’t love to reminisce about their high school years? Seriously, these kinds of movies are the best to get all cuddly and cozy thinking about the best AND worst years of your life.
With it being Memorial Day and all, why not take the opportunity to binge-watch some of the best, most classic films that make you feel like you’re in high school again!
What do you mean you don’t want to relive those years? Alright, fine, we’ll ignore YOU then… ANYWAY, check out our favorite films to watch when you wanna feel like a teenager again!
10. Mean Girls
I’m just getting this one out of the way since it’s obviously going to be the number one spot. From Lindsay Lohan’s sensational performance and Wowlebrity, Daniel Franzese reminding us all of ourselves. Secretly, we all wanted to be Mean Girls.
Speaking of which, in seventh grade when I saw this movie – I ended up making my own version of a “Burn Book” and passed it around my school. It backfired, I got in severe trouble, and I realized everyone knew I was gay. Figures. I’m so obviously Janis Ian it makes me cringe.
09. The Craft
Oh, like you weren’t also playing “Light as a Feather” while pretending to be a Mean Girl. Pfff. Seriously, Fairuza Balk annihilated her role and it will forever go down in history as iconic. I can’t believe they’re giving this a sequel!
08. John Tucker Must Die
Brittany Snow has the voice of an angel. We all fell for that guy in high school, you know, the one with a perfect ass, who was a complete dickhead. John Tucker Must Die proves that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
We all still quote Clueless! I live in Los Angeles now and use “We’re going to Melrose”, whenever I go anywhere. I haven’t even been on Melrose! Did she really fall in love with her ex-step-brother though? C’mon, Cher!
I’m a little biased, Charolette Ayanna was the first celebrity I’ve ever met and my former colleague is married to Julie Benz. But, I’m even more biased of my undying love and affection for Rose McGowan. These frenemies murdered their favorite friend and then turned a nark into the most popular girl in school. It’s like they turned my Freshman year into a film!
05. Perks of Being a Wallflower
As a teenager we’re all angsty and moody. I still am! This movie gives you all the feels and really pumps up the LGBTQ theme to give us characters to relate with!
04. She’s All That
When I was the biggest loser in school, all I wanted was to have someone make a bet to turn me into the hot chick. I can still hope!
03. Girl, Interrupted
Brittany Murphy, I miss you so much. Combine Brittany with this incredible cast including Whoopi Goldberg, Angelina Jolie, Winona Ryder, and many more. Some of us had alternative High School experiences, so I don’t doubt that these girls are really different than anyone. Hell, they are us!
02. Drop Dead Gorgeous
Kirsten Dunst was the only girl I’ve ever had a crush on. She was in nearly every movie in the 90s and early 2000s and I couldn’t be more excited for her comeback. Kirsten – hear me out, pitch a Drop Dead Gorgeous Sequel! It would be ridiculously successful. And, to quote Allison Janney, “I got some!”
01. Never Been Kissed
I love older men – so I don’t care that her teacher was falling in love with her! I wanted that to happen with me, damn it! One of my teachers looked like Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid! I wonder if he’s on Facebook… anyway, this movie is still my everything!
Drew Barrymore carries it the entire way, but the stand out is clearly Molly Shannon as her horny coworker. This is a must watch for everyone who wants to relive their teens and come out on top!
