If youíre not back in school yet, youíre extremely lucky indeed. The rest of us are bogged down in studies and tests, although hopefully nobodyís been unlucky enough to wind up with detention yet. But all of these things put me in the mindset of school movies, and as far as Iím concerned, some of the best school movies might be some youíve never heard of.


Alicia Silverstone is a Beverly Hills cutie with unlimited spending money and a great best friend. The two are fashion queens and if youíre not into fashion, youíre so out of Cherís world. Cher, played by Silverstone, decides to take on a project in the form of a new girl, Tai. While sheís working on one make-over project, sheís also working on her grades. Only sheís not doing extra make-up work, sheís simply negotiating for the As and Bs that make her rich daddy proud. Preppy and a total bubble head, this movie is light fare, but still very relevant to many schools today. Itís just plain fun.

The Breakfast Club

Easily the most famous school detention movie ever made, the breakfast club has plenty of once famous faces, and just a bit of action Ė all in the high school library. A group of kids who all run in different circles in the high school wind up in detention together one Saturday morning. They spend the day avoiding each other and then learning what itís like to be on the other side of the social and clique lines that are drawn so deeply in high schools. There is awesome 80s dancing as well.

Sixteen Candles

With almost an identical cast, or at least a few familiar faces, Sixteen Candles follows one girl on her sixteenth birthday who has been all but forgotten as her sisterís wedding and other family activities simply overshadow her big day. Things go from bad to worse with a crush she canít seem to make work and an annoying freshman who canít seem to get over her. Typical frustration for a teenage girl, and a very nice ending indeed.

Canít Hardly Wait

Not too old, but with powerful messages Ė at a single party, a lot can happen. Different individuals take turns trying to make fate work in their favor for once. Sweet and sentimental, things seem to work out in odd and quirky ways, and through it all you canít help but smile. The obnoxious jock gets taken out, the nice guy gets the girl Ė barely, and the goofball gets schooled by the smart girl. Donít you just love it?

Dazed and Confused

Want to know what school was like in the seventies? Look no farther. This movie follows one night of parties and hazing of the incoming freshman at the beginning of summer. Traditions and excellent one-liners fill the movie as you see how a small town celebrates the beginning of summer and the common ties that bring them together.

Ferris Buellerís Day Off

It doesnít get any better than this. Once youíve seen Ferris Bueller one time, youíll never forget him. Set in the 1980s, the fashion is fabulous, but so is the story. A privileged boy used to beating the system is working to beat it one more time while the assistant principle does his best to see that he doesnít get away with it. With lines youíll never forget and a great dance number, Ferris Bueller is an absolute ďmust see.Ē

the only movie on that list I've heard of and watched is Sixteen Candles. Why isn't Grease mentioned? That's a great high-school themed movie!

"Oh great, now they're planning our weddings!"

I love Grease, HSM1&2, Harry Potter (MY FAV MOVIES OF ALL TIME), Disney Movies, The Black Stallion, Hairspray, Step Up1&2 and so much more!

I've never heard of the movies you've put on here. I'm Australian, so maybe they are american movies.

How could you not have American Pie or Fast Times at Ridgemont High on there? A lot more accurate about life at school than most of those. (In my opinion, anyways.)

But, I guess they aren't exactly doll palace friendly. XD

I haven't seen the last three, but that's all. I like those funny movies. Like how in sixteen candles, the boy didn't have a name! Even in the credits he was listed as "nerdy boy" and he was a main character.

I like HSM, but don't hate me for it. Everyone has their own faves.

I actually haven't seen any of the ones you listed before. I'll try to check them out when I get the chance.
