5 favorite "high school" movies?

1. Ferris Beuler 's Day Off- 5/5 still funny and smart as ever

2. Fast Times At Ridgemont High- 4.9/5 so many classsic lines

3. The Breakfast Club- 4.5/5- doesn't have to rewatchablity of Ferris or fast Times but still a great movie

4. Summer School- 4.25/5- funny stuff!!!!!!!!


5. Back to the Future-5/5 only ranked this low since it's not really a true HS movie but realy it's my favorite on the list

There is 3 O'Clock High & then there is everything else. Nothing comes close to the masterpiece that it is.

2. License To Drive if that counts.

3. Summer School

Don't know after that, not real big on the teeny bopper movies.

In no order:

Election
Breakfast Club
Heathers
10 Things I Hate About You
Rushmore


Honerable mention goes to Freeks and Geeks- As much as I love the above films, I like F&G 10 times more. But it's not a movie so it doesn't count.

And, Welcome to the Dollhouse would be my favorite middle school movie in case you where wondering.

Why not? I guess Rushmore itself is all grades, although the main charcter is in "high school" and of course changes schools during the movie. I would think that meets the definition of a "high school" movie
