Today was OKC’s first day back at school. And, having a sister and a mother who work at a public school, I lamented with them the fact that we can longer spend our day’s poolside or making many trips to the cupcake store and Sonic. However, instead of crying over an empty cupcake wrapper, I thought I’d pull a “Buzzfeed” and do something everyone could appreciate. Make a list of my top 15 school-related movies!
So here they are, in no particular order. (Sidebar: if you haven’t seen some of these, you NEED to. Especially the ones from the ‘80’s; they’re my bread and butter.)
A young Mark Harmon + a skinny Kirstie Alley = 1980’s movie GOLD.
I’m fairly certain this is loosely based on one particular teacher of mine in high school. (My former classmates probably know who I’m referencing.)
Typical clichéd geek, jock, nerd, princess, burnout, and trouble maker…But with a dash of John Hughes’ genius. (click image)
Oh Spinozi, why’d you have to go all weird and marry Madonna?!
Hands down, best Matthew McConaughey movie ever (let’s just look past the whole “Fools Gold” fiasco…)
Forever linking Emma Stone and Natasha Bedingfield.
Creating new buzzwords and phrases for a generation. (“She’s a total Monet!”)
“Life can move pretty fast. If you don’t slow down, you may miss it.”
Oh Lindsey Lohan, you had such a promising future. See what hanging out with the school bullies does to you? Yep. Four stints in rehab.
Time travel, Nicholas Cage in a gold suit, and “Chandler’s Dad”. How can it get any better than this?!
Teaching girls everywhere that if being yourself doesn’t get the guy, leather and teased hair will.
“I am now and forever will be, The Duck Man.”
How would I summarize this in one sentence? Guy goes back in time, kisses his mom, and hooks his parents up all while wearing a life preserver and talking to the town nut.
You tell her, JGL. You don’t need her; one day you’ll help save Gotham.
Even McDreamy had an awkward stage…
