    Fast Times was for sure a good one. I always love it when they show kids in actual CLASS during highschool movies or shows. I know with movies and shows we are not exactly going for what is realistic but it still feels a bit more realistic. Showing them in class, the way the sex stuff was handled, the way the customer treats Brad at the fast food place, the way you wonder if Linda was mostly all talk and no action, etc.

    I'm not a pot head but I really thought Dazed And Confused was good.

    Clueless and Ferris Bueller, Can't Hardly Wait and Drive Me Crazy were fun ones.

    I liked Romy and Michelle as an entertaining take on preparing for a ten year highschool reunion.

    I liked Rock And Roll Highschool Forever and Dream A Little Dream as well.

    I liked Dream A Little Dream just for Meredith Salenger.

    I'm surprised Heathers wasn't mentioned. Wasn't that an ultimate high school film at one point?

    OMG! I almost forgot about Teen Witch!! A movie so ridiculous and unrealistic it was good and I love the little old lady from Poltergeist in this. She was so creepy when she laughed...lol R.I.P Zelda Rubinstein.

    God I hated Superbad, what a fcking vulgar film, it really made you feel like the most uncool piece of sht seeing that shortly after I graduated high school.

    I don't know what anyone saw in that film, it's just not funny. It relies on gross out humor to deliver, but I need things to actually be funny. I need some wit.
