Best Movies for Teens Ages 13-16


The Top Ten

1 Napoleon Dynamite

I first saw this movie when I was about 10, and I didn't get the appeal. Then I grew up into a teenager, and I understand it completely. One of the most hilarious and quotable movies ever, and totally relatable to anybody who's ever gone through high school.

A listless and alienated teenager decides to help his new friend win the class presidency in their small western high school, while he must deal with his bizarre family life back home. - DecSwain1730

The most beautiful anime movie I’ve ever seen. And yes, that includes Studio Ghibli. If you’re reading this and you think that Hayao Miyazaki is the only one who can make good anime movies, do yourself a favour and go watch this right now. I promise you won’t regret it! ❤️
(That being said, I still really like Studio Ghibli)
