I've seen my fair share of teen movies. There are a lot of good ones, but these a few of my favourites. I decided to talk about a couple of movies from the 80s and the 90s because I think those are the movies fewer people are likely to have seen.


Clueless and 90s image
fun fact: clueless got turned into a pretty decent TV show by MTV

If you haven't watched Clueless umm you should get on that right now!
If for nothing else, Clueless is an iconic movie simply for the fashion. That being said Clueless is one of my favourite movies of all time. It follows Cher Horowitz, rich, popular girl from Beverly Hills. But unlike many characters of the same background, Cher is super kind, interesting and a super likeable protagonist.
This movie is a champion for female friendships and is honestly such a feel-good movie that has a message about being yourself that is packed in a well-dressed package.

10 Things I Hate About You

love, movie, and 10 things i hate about you image quotes, 10 things i hate about you, and movie image

10 Things I Hate About You is another throwback movie that remains super high on my recommendations list. The movie follows the story of Bianca and Katrina Stratford. Bianca is banned from dating until her older sister Kat does, and thus a boy who has a huge crush on Bianca enlists the help of a bad boy, to get Katrina back into dating.
This movie follows all of the tropes that I love and also taught me a lot about staying true to yourself even if that isn't the most popular thing. Kat is super outspoken and really cool and the number one reason to watch this movie The number 2 reason to watch this movie is a young Heath Ledger! What a beautiful man

If you haven't seen this iconic 80s teen movie, you have probably missed the hundreds of references to it that are north-American pop culture.

Ferris Bueller's Day off is the ultimate seize the day movie
The movie follows Ferris Bueller and his friend Cameron, as they decide to cut class for the day (Cameron very reluctantly) and proceed to have an amazing day. This movie taught me so much about living life, and not letting anything stop you.
On top of the amazing message, the movie is super fun to watch and Ferris Bueller is so effortlessly cool, you can't help but root for him.
