When I’m stuck in the house and have nothing better to do, I always turn to teen movies. Usually I stick with the classic John Hughes movies, but sometimes I can’t help but be all about the 90s. These are just six of my favorite movies from that decade.
Clueless: I’ll admit it now, I wanted to be Cher Horowitz so bad. I mean what girl doesn’t want that lifestyle? Okay, well I can think of girls who wouldn’t, but I definitely wouldn’t mind having a closet that big full of all my favorite clothes, shoes, and accessories.
Clueless, $19.99 from Amazon
Empire Records: I think the main reason I enjoy this movie so much is that I have the biggest crush on young Ethan Embry. Okay that isn’t the only reason, I actually enjoy the story told. That, and the cast is actually really great.
Empire Records, $19.98 from Amazon
Bring It On: I don’t think I even knew what cheer-leading was before this movie. Though after seeing it, I wanted nothing more than to be a cheer-leader, which sadly was a short lived dream seeing as I had zero ability.
Bring It On (Widescreen Collector’s Edition), $14.98 from Amazon
Can’t Hardly Wait: Another movie with Ethan Embry *sigh*. I didn’t get to have the cliched high school party scene, the parties I went to were never like that. I guess I’m just a sucker for the ‘boy loves girl, girl doesn’t know boy exists’ cliche.
Can’t Hardly Wait, $14.99 from Amazon
10 Things I Hate About You: This is probably one of the movies I’ve seen the most. The combination of young Heath Ledger and young Joseph Gordon-Levitt was enough to hook me, but they weren’t the only thing keeping my attention. I felt like I could really relate to Kat Stratford, and that scene when she’s reading her sonnet? Yeah, I cried.
10 Things I Hate About You, $14.99 from Amazon
Jawbreaker: There’s just something about this movie that I really like. Maybe, it’s the cattiness of the lead characters or the angst of high school, but all I know is that it’s definitely one of my go to movies.
Jawbreaker, $9.95 from Amazon
These are just a few of my favorites, there are definitely a lot more. Do any of these movies make your list? If not, what are some of your favorite movies?
