Greatest High School Movies

The Top Ten
1 The Breakfast Club The Breakfast Club Product Image

Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you're crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us... In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain...
... And an athlete...
... And a basket case...
... A princess...
... And a criminal...
Does that answer your question?...
Sincerely yours,
The Breakfast Club.

I can only wish for and fathom what a sequel to this movie would be like. It would be interesting to see how the Breakfast Club acted on Monday or even to see how they could have been five years from them. I wish there was a follow-up.

Best High School movie ever. Please, no sequels. No remakes. It's just that damn good. Do NOT remake this.

The best popcorn movie ever to exist.

2 Fast Times at Ridgemont High Fast Times at Ridgemont High Product Image
3 Dazed & Confused Dazed & Confused Product Image

One of the worst films ever made. Darla hated that film for decades. Don't get me wrong. Darla's #1 film is Bridge to Terabithia (2007) even if it had the song "why can't we be friends", resulting in a friendship between Jess Aarons and Leslie Burke before her death.

This deserves to be in the top 10, at least. This movie explains everything!

It's freakin' funny, and I've seen it more than 1000 times. Literally!

4 Ferris Bueller's Day Off Ferris Bueller's Day Off Product Image

All the worst movies have many problems with them, and Ferris Bueller is no different. Hideously unfunny, stretched-out jokes, poor acting, actors too old for their characters, scenes that don't make sense, and the worst "doesn't know wehre to end" case in the history of cinema. It currently sits at 80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The mindblowingly spectacular Boy in the Striped Pajamas is 63 and the incredibly fantastic Goonies is something like 67. Ah, humanity.

Person saying this is a bad movie, I have seen both films you are talking about, completely different, but this is better

5 Superbad Superbad Product Image

Also one of the most quotable movies of all time. "There's no first or last name, it just says McLOVIN!

6 Mean Girls Mean Girls Product Image

I like this movie, even though I don't like Lindsey!

7 Heathers Heathers Product Image

I love this movie. Also, this should be above Mean Girls because Mean Girls was based off Heathers. Heathers is an amazing, quirky but funny movie that you need to watch.

Great movie! The plot is amazing. It wasn't too predictable at all, and there weren't any bad characters.

Yes times 1000. No other movie shows a bunch of murderous teens, so this is an obvious win.

Love the movie and musical!

8 Sixteen Candles Sixteen Candles Product Image
9 Easy A Easy A Product Image
10 American Pie American Pie Product Image

Haven't you all seen American Pie? This should be with The Breakfast Club!
This movie is about teenagers who will do anything to lose their virginity; overall, this is one of my favorite movies of all-time.

The Contenders
11 Grease Grease Product Image

I watched this when I was like 10 with my mum. Haven't watched it since then though

An all time classic incredibly funny movie.

12 Back to the Future Back to the Future Product Image

What is this doing at #10? This movie is great! It's funny, dramatic, cool, and it has some songs good enough to put on anybodies Ipod or other music player. I own the 25th anniversary edition trilogy with all three movies, digital copies for each one, and a bonus disc. That's how much I love the movie, or should I say all 3 movies

13 Clueless Clueless Product Image
14 American Graffiti American Graffiti Product Image
15 Cooley High Cooley High Product Image
16 Blackboard Jungle Blackboard Jungle Product Image
17 Carrie Carrie Product Image
18 Napoleon Dynamite Napoleon Dynamite Product Image

What the hell? This movie is at the very bottom of the list! This movie most people love - so baffling!

19 Election Election Product Image
20 Lucas Lucas Product Image

Aside from the gridiron stuff, this is the closest to what the high school experience was for me.

21 The Last American Virgin The Last American Virgin Product Image
22 The Perks of Being a Wallflower The Perks of Being a Wallflower Product Image

It should be at number.1 position when ithas such a hot and cute actor in it aka Logan Lerman

One of the best high school movies ever.
