Top Five Movies You Should Watch With Your Teenage Kids

...Or anyone else for that matter.

#5. The Goonies

Why? This isn't about kids going on a treasure hunt. It's about kids having to cross over from their carefree childhood to the real life problems of the adult world. Plus there's cool clues, kissing, sword fights and pirates. Oh yeah, and Rocky Road ice cream.

Best Line: "This one, this one right here this was my dream, my wish. And it didn't come true. So I'm taking it back. I'm taking them all back."

#4. Lucas

Why? There's nothing like having your heart broken for the first time. The kids are realistic and make bad choices, yet, even though most of the characters are flawed, you still like them.

Best Line: "I'll never quit. EVER!"

#3. The Breakfast Club

Why? Makes you abandon your prejudice about every kid you'll ever see. And let's not forget the hilarious escape scene and awesome soundtrack.

Best Line: "We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all."

#2. Say Anything

Why? Love story that doesn't depend on cliches. Seeing John Cusack holding the boom box over his head is worth hitting the rewind button a few times.

Best Line: "I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen."


#1. Stand By Me

Why? Four friends trying to hold on to their childhood with one last adventure, but are forced to face the ugly side of growing up.

Best Line: "I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?"


Dirty Dancing

Why? Realizing that your parents are regular people who can't fix the world is the scariest part of growing up. Plus, watching Patrick Swayze dance in tight black pants is a good way to spend two hours.

Best Line: "Nobody puts Baby in the corner."

What are some of your favorite teen movies?

This list is perfection -- some of my favorite movies! My daughter is only 5, so of these she's just seen The Goonies. Her love of it makes me very, very proud. :-)

I haven't watched any of these, and I've only heard of two o.O But if I have daughters in the future, I'd watch 'Girl in Progress' and 'My Girl'. Um. Other teen movies... teen movies... teen movies. No o.o

BUT, if I was a REALLY evil mother, I'd totally make them watch Titanic with me. I mean, I don't even like the movie, but I swear there's nothing worse than watching that with your parents... >:]

Me and my friends at college watched the Breakfast Club together and it was the first time any of us had seen it and it was the best movie ever!

I must be less sentimental than most parents. So far, I've made my teenagers watch Better Off Dead, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Sixteen Candles may or may not be next. ;)
