You know it! I wonder if THREE O'CLOCK HIGH had the same casting director as DEATH WISH 4: THE CRACKDOWN? In addition to Ryan HIGH also features Mitch Pileggi as Duke Herman:

School Ties was an oversight. I want to keep it at an even 50, though, so I will swap it out with something nobody really cares about - Can't Buy Me Love.

Not sure what Love, Simon is. Is it new? My brain wants it to be the same as Dear Evan Hanson, I think.

Never seen My Bodyguard. It can take the place of Paper Towns, unless someone wants to speak up for that one.

I welcome such suggestions for the first 24 hours or so. I'm keeping us at 50, though, so any late additions will have to replace something that is yet to receive any upvotes.

Mannnnnnn, fuck Dear Evan Hansen. (Y'all got me on a roll about thoughts on Broadway theater today).

LOVE, SIMON came out last year - it was sold as one of the first mainstream high school films where the lead is gay, but it's not a dark and twisty drama about how hard it is to be gay. It's actually really lovely - I almost put it on that short list with LADY BIRD and EDGE OF SEVENTEEN. Really good cast of teen actors, excellent soundtrack by Bleachers/Jack Antonoff, and, crucially for these kinds of movies - great performances from the adults/parents (Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhmael especially).

If we're looking for films that can be cut, THE SPECTACULAR NOW is a movie about high schoolers but I don't really think of it as a "high school" movie, it's more "coming of age," which I think is a key difference. BULLY is also a lot like that.

VALLEY GIRL? It's kind of essential.

Plus PORKY'S is more culturally important than NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE.

Oh, and HOUSE PARTY???

Oh, and COOLEY HIGH?

THE WILD LIFE = underrated 80's Teen flick

Some cool stuff no one talks about (or not enough): RECKLESS, DANGEROUSLY CLOSE, MISCHIEF, LICENCE TO DRIVE, SECRET ADMIRER, THE OUTSIDERS, MASSACRE AT CENTRAL HIGH

SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL > PRETTY IN PINK

I quite like Super Bad, but I'm not complaining. I will say that I think it's crazy that of all the Apatow-verse movies, that's the one that features a future Emmy winner (Hader), a future Oscar winner and three-time nominee (Stone), a future two-time Oscar nominee (Hill), and a future Tony nominee (Cera). Add on top of that that McLovin seems to have turned out normal, and Rogen is out here stanning for cinematographers, trolling Don Jr in DMs, and testifying in front of Congress about early onset Alzheimers.

I never loved it as a whole - Seth and Evan's story was never anything special and all that over-celebrated McLovin bollocks bored the shit out of me - but I figured I'd put it on because I love dumb cops (Sledge Hammer, Wiggum, Barbrady, Police Squad, etc.) and wanted to see Hader and Rogen do their thing again. Unfortunately their shtick isn't as charming as it used to be, although on the plus side I liked most of the Jonah Hill stuff more than I used to.

Superbad was a top 10 choice. You guys, as usual, suck at this.

But good calls on Porky's and Valley Girl. I actually considered House Party, but I couldn't remember how much school was actually in it.

Some other considerations:

This is high school movies, not teenage movies. So if there is another, more primary setting (such as Da Hood, or the Outsiders'....hood) where a lot of the movie takes place, I would cut it.

I tried to stick to things where high school is the main focus, and so for the most parts if there is a genre conceit that overrides the HS-ness of it all, it got cut (thus no BTTF, Bill And Ted, Harry Potter, Brick, Teen Wolf).

If the main character is a teacher, that is a different kind of movie (so no Blackboard Jungle, Dangerous Minds, To Sir With Love, Lean On Me, Stand And Deliver, Only The Strong).


Some of the edges got a bit fuzzy, certainly. I cut Hoosiers for being more of a sports movie than a basketball movie, but Friday Night Lights felt in some vague way like it was more about high school culture, even though it probably has less scenes in classrooms.
