2. Say Anything
This romantic comedy is considered one of the best romantic movies of the the late 80’s. With John Cusack and his famous “boom box stance” you’ll fall in love all over again. If you’ve ever wanted to date the valedictorian, this is a must-see movie that will transport you straight to the days of young love.
One of my all-time favorite movies, this is one you can watch over and over again. Join in the antics of Matthew Broderick as he works his Ferris magic and skips one final day of school. With stars like Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Grey, and Jeffery Jones in supporting roles, Ferris’ antics will leave you smiling.
It may be from 1978, but Grease is a classic coming of age movie for musical lovers. Plus, there’s always the joy of watching a young John Travolta dance his heart out. When the good girl falls for the bad boy, there’s sure to be sparks. It’s a classic story with a musical twist.
This classic teen movie will have you laughing your socks off. With all the drama, love, and antics you can pack into a graduation party in the suburbs, Can’t Hardly Wait is an iconic graduation movie. If you ever harbored a secret crush on the prom king or queen, you’ll relate to Preston’s plight.
