Confession-Addiction to Teen Movies

I have known for some time now that I am addicted to teen movies. All the drama about the nerds, populars, plastics, stoners, vamps, skaters...whatever. LOVE IT!

I have never told anyone about my addiction, but now, I am outing. I
love these flicks. Always good for a laugh..completely real, yet unreal. I love a great teen movie. BUT...funny thing, of all my hundred of movies (yes, hundreds...thanks to mom), I don't own a single one! Not one! SAD.

So, I am starting a wish list and hoping that these titles will be worth less or equal to $10. Let the movie collecting
begin. I will periodically update this post to let you know which movies I have purchased. Oh, and tell me which one's I am missing.

Ok, so a few are pushing the "teen line", but LOVE THEM! I cant believe you have never seen Dawson. I didnt watch it when it was on weekly but got mega addicted when it was on TBS. Still have the biggest crush on Pacey (Joshua Jackson)...Marcus knows, so its ok...Lol.

Good luck with your collection! Great thing is that most are under $10 so you are set!

Tara Bergsjo said...

Whitney said...

you are missing sisterhood of the traveling pants! hello, one and two, fantastic. i am a HUGE fan of teen movies and teen fiction! lol.

also, a new good one i just watched was "picture this" with ashley tinsdale, it was on abc family. but you can also rent it!

Rachel said...

You must add Never Been Kissed to that list. I'm glad you let out your little secret. Just wanted to say how much I admire your ability to find that window when God closes the door. I think you're fabulous. I added your blog link to my blog list. Hope school is good. Grad school is a shock to the system, but what a fun shock! I know what you mean about the 3-hour classes! Best of luck to ya.

The Night Before which is very hard to find. Anything but Housework

Lish Fish: Great ideas. I can't believe I really don't have some of those! I know...Dawson's happened when we didn't have cable. What, not have cable...that's insane!

Tara: Ah yes, I will need all the luck I can get on these puppies. This list just keeps getting longer and longer. Can't wait for Dawson's

Sarah: Ah hah. It was you who started this whole addiction, I will have you know. Darn you and your taste in great teen flicks ;) Um let Dawson's night begin babe!!

Whit: Good call on the ABC movies. I seriously love them to pieces. How could I forget Sisterhood. Probably because I own it and have watched it a bazillion times. You would think it would be top of mind, right!?

Rachel: I'm on your blog list...stop it! I made it. I am in the 'in,' I am in the 'know.'Grad school-biggest shock ever. 1,000 pages to read. You betchya count me in. Thanks for the words. I appreciate the encouragement, really!

Anything But Housework: Hook a sister up!

Lindsay:
Unlike my daughter I am not a movie goer. A few weeks ago some friends of Trudi invited me to girls night out. We saw Bride Wars. Oh my goodness what a chick flick and I loved it. Maybe not a teenage one but I thought I'd suggest it.

Lisl and Stephen said...

Thats awesome, and I don't believe its just you, I think its the majority of our generation, at least amongst the females. But I have to say I'm so eager to see Bride Wars, and He's Just Not That Into You

Nikki said...

Totally not just you...Can't Hardly Wait has always been a favorite of mine. In college my BF and a couple of guys we hung out with watched it every Wednesday night...It was so fun. The four of us had a bowling team too and we named it the "Skizants" (I don't know if it is spelled that way but that is how WE spelled it...)

'Nah man...that boy aint got no skillz'

Am I blind, or is Girls Just Wanna Have Fun not on any of those lists? LOVE that movie! And have you ever seen Better Off Dead? I think that was a good one too, if I remember right (maybe a little hairbrained...)
