I tried not to cross-pollinate genres too much in the interests of keeping it to 50 (though the odd CARRIE did still make it in), but BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM may have been a good inclusion. I never got around to it, so it slipped my mind. Does it have a school element, or is it all soccer?

All of Elvis (and others) suggestions have led me to reconsider that perhaps this was a deep enough field to suport a full draft and not just a KO. Perhaps an idea to revisit a half dozen drafts down the line...

I like to thing My Bodyguard was KO'd because Adam Baldwin started a cab company with Gary Busey and Mr. T in D.C.

I've never actually seen RISKY BUSINESS, but my impression of it was never really as a high school movie per se. Isn't it about Tom Cruise turning his parents' house into a high end brothel? Doesn't seem very universal as far as the teenage experience.

You really should see it. It captures tension of preparing for SATS; where whole life seems in balance- the system make you feel everything is at stake. Plus, how mindset, shaped by environment - parents + peers, can be altered by radical experience. Cruise's weekend with Rebecca De Mornay is a coming of age road to Damascus -  born again, saved from being another lost suburban Republican. Life Lesson: "Sometimes you gotta say what the fuck" "What the fuck...If you can't say it, you can't do it."

RISKY BUSINESS is really, really good, Schwartz. It's much better in execution than the plot description indicates. Give it a watch, you won't regret it.

I wasn't doubting it's good-itude. Only that the plot description sounds like it is about a high school age character, but not so much about high school.

Risky has one iconic scene but's it not really much of a "High School" movie. That makes it hard to justify keeping it so high on a list of greatest high school movies.

Risky is not good at all, and even if it were, it's not a high school movie. High school adjacent at best.

You could literally take everything Elvis says about it and apply it to IF... except that one of those is, you know, actually set at a school.

It's only stuck around this long "because 80s." Kill it.

I don't remember the kids sitting around in class during GRAFFITI. In my opinion, you don't have to see much of the school to be a HS movie. In RISKY, Cruise is a Senior about to take the next step - and that's all that consumes him - but he really doesn't have any life experience, and film shows how much system guides us along predestined fate. Luckily, for Cruise a woman comes along learnin' her man.

Real life first hits you during these years hard sometimes- and that's the education that lingers. Not some Robin Williams DEAD POETS shit.
