Teen movies are a tremendous part of our culture—and so many of them have become classics. But does anyone really look at what these films are teaching us? Do black leather pants really lead to instant popularity (like they do for Sandy in Grease)? Should you really stalk a girl to win her over (like Lloyd Dobler does in Say Anything)? And if you steal your dad’s car and solicit a prostitute (like Joel in Risky Business), will you really get into an Ivy League school? This hilarious read gives us synopses from 50 classic teen movies and brings to light all the brilliant (well, maybe not) advice offered up in each one. Quotes and quizzes also included.
