La Prepa

La Prepa

KPCC did a piece last night on the best high school movies.  My top three are, in order, The Breakfast Club, Fame, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

Others I can’t quite figure out how to rank:  Heathers, Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion, Clueless, Pump Up The Volume, Dead Poets Society, Carrie, and both Greases.

While Fame is the movie that most closely approximates the feel of my high school (especially the lots of people everywhere all the time part, not the dancing on table tops part), there is something about the discovery of how different people see the world that earns The Breakfast Club the top spot on my list.

Your favorite?


One thought on “La Prepa

  1. I think my favorite is Clueless. My high school was nothing like it, I don’t (nor did I) have much in common with Cher, Tai or Dion. However, I love the storyline and the clever one-liners. Grease is definitely up there too. I need to think a little more on other favorites.
