Mean Girls – 2004 – Mark Waters

46m.jpgIt’s your typical teen flick – the microcosmic world of an American high school. Lohan, who is beautiful but nice, gets caught up in the wind storm of popularity and becomes a mean girl herself, ditching her true misfit friends in the mean time. It’s not gonna’ win any awards for greatness, but it does what it says on the can! Cristina Pittelli


The Breakfast Club – 1985 – John Hughes

breakfast_club.jpg“In the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions,” it’s 1980s American high school: jock, princess, loner, nerd and rebel. Nary a better line in cinematic history than: “Shut up bitch! Go fix me a turkey pot pie!” The 80s were Hughes’s golden era and this was his magnum opus.
