Aaaah Clueless! That was driving me mad! I can’t believe I forgot the name of that film. I got 6, 8, 10, 11, 12 and 13. Fun quiz!!
As if! 😉 Yeah it’s a fun genre. There are some great movies in there. I especially recommend film 4.
I know at least 5 lol…this is def my “level” #teenAlltheWay
There are some great movies in that list. I saw Risky Business again the other day. Such a good film. I have such a soft spot for Napoleon Dynamite too.
Ha Ha — I didn’t get the 2010s ones because, I had at this point in my advancing years, after teaching high schoolers all day, lacked the desire to watch them. A fine list, Alex.
Omen of the advantages of doing the list in chronological order is you can see how the way movies have changed within the genre over the decades. I’m guessing most people won’t have seen it but I love Whatever it Takes. Thanks for stopping by as always.
Whatever It Takes is my era so will have to check it out.
The Perks of Being A Wallflower one of the best movies of that year. Highly recommend Cindy.
Thanks, Lloyd. Will do!
And what a quote this is 🙂
We accept the love we think we deserve.
Cool list! Lots of fun watching.
Yeah some real classics in there. Could you pick a favourite or is that too cheeky to ask?
No…not cheeky at all..
I quite enjoyed The D.U.F.F. Mean Girls and American Pie are of course “classics” of those I’ve seen…still have to watch The Breakfast Club.
Whatever it Takes was such a fun one in terms of the actors and how young they were…compared to now.
Yes that film has a nice heart. You have to see The Breakfast Club!
I know….I’ve been meaning to for ages…
14/15 – I had no idea on Whatever it Takes. Haven’t seen that one.
I really like it. A really fun movie. Has some names that made it big later but one of the minor parts was played by Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad game.
11/15 missed 9,10,13 and 15great quiz as always alex!
Thanks. I do like Whatever it Takes a lot. Men’s Girls was well made too.
Only saw four of them! Clueless is a must!
Yeah it’s as popular as ever. Musicals and everything. I hope you get to see it soon. It’s a fun movie.
Whee! I got 11 out of 15, and I am VERY proud of that because I never do well on these quizzes. Hooray!
P.S. Was thrilled to see Napoleon Dynamite featured.
A nice score! And totally for Napeloen Dynamite. So many gloriously cringy moments and a wonderful soundtrack.
Wow! You certainly are a movie buff. Most of these I have seen yet with the classics I enjoy watching again. Finding a really good movie lately has been tough. I’m not sure if I like the newer type of movies and how they are filmed and directed. I’m more comfy with the older films. But that is me. (smile)
It’s very easy to get nostalgic don’t worry. I think you’d like Stan and Ollie btw. It’s just been released and tells the story of the later part of the famous duo’s personal and private career. Really nice film.
Thank you! Winter is my time to watch movies while I wait for Spring. Another good movie to watch ….. I’ve been involved and finally finished a TV series called Burn Notice and now The Amazing Mrs. Masil. At least I think Masil is spelled like that. If not ….. you’ll find it! LOL
Thank you for the heads up.
12/15. I do love a teen movie!
I knew you would. There are some wonderful films in here. One of the very few quiz posts I’ve done where I’ve seen all of them.
12/15. 9, 14 & 15 eluded me. Great quiz.
Thanks. A very solid score Lloyd 🙂
I got 12. Not a bad score.
Some really fun movies in here. Very solid score Vinnie. Is The Breakfast Club your favourite within the set?
It’s one of them.
Lots of my type of films here Alex 😁. Cher I’m Clueless used to be my absolute favourite followed closely by Mean Girls. Didn’t know a few of them though so I’ll have to check them out.
Yes she certainly one of the most popular female characters around 🙂
Great quiz! That was hard, too. I got only 10 right, and the ones I missed are nearly all 2010+.
I know. It can be hard to keep up. My favourite ones were largely in the 80s and 90s.
8 out of 15…. WOOT!
That’s one of your best scores 😃
True! I have to look if I did better on gowns. LOL
Shows how I don’t want to grow up! (Years after the fact) 😀
You got 11 on that one. And it’s also one of my most popular quizzes so thanks again 😃
Whew! It wouldn’t look good if I scored lower on that one. 😀
I enjoy your posts, dear Alex! 😀
That’s very kind. Thanks so much 🙂
I thought I might see Fast Times at Ridgemont High!
That was on the original list actually. I took it out for Risky Business. I have such a soft spot for that movie.
Me, too! I pick it over FTatRH!

14 out of 15! The only one I didn’t know was Whatever it Takes.
Superb stuff. That’s a fantastic score. I really do have a soft spot for that movie. As an aside, it has a young Aaron Paul in a small part.
