Teens jacked up on hormones are going to hook up and make things happen. That’s what happens in real life and it takes place even more at the movies.
While teen lust is the subject of hundreds of forgettable films, the following
movies have withstood the test of time to emerge as not just great romantic teen
movies, but great romantic films unto themselves.
Oh, and it helps that they’re often filled with sex, nudity and laughs along
with all that lust.
Who knew that James Cameron’s epic recounting of the sinking of the Titanic
would turn into the ultimate tragic teen movie for girls? This movie has it all
– heartthrob Leo DiCaprio teaches Kate Winslet how to spit, Billy Zane goes
bonkers, tons of rich snobs dying, and there’s even sex in a car. And to
satisfy the guys, Leo dies in the end.
Yes, intercourse with a fruit-filled confection is something that has crossed
the minds of teenage boys. Really, when you’re that desperate, anything looks
This vulgar comedy has a sweet center that appeals to both boys and girls –
like a co-ed restroom – you’ll each find something for you in there.
FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH
Fast Times is not just a great teen movie, it’s a milestone in the genre.
There are so many classic moments, from Sean Penn’s performance as the stoner
Spicoli, to Judge Reinhold’s solo performance, to Phoebe Cate’s slow
motion rise from the pool in which she loses her top.
But none of these come even close to my personal favorite scene – Jennifer
Jason Leigh teaching oral sex using a carrot.
John Cusack will forever be loved by women for playing Lloyd Dobbler – the
sweetest boyfriend who ever lived. This teen classic shows what lengths men will
go to for love.
Now, remember ladies, it’s only a movie. In real life, Lloyd would be arrested
as a stalker.
Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder get all gothic in this beauty and the beast tale.
Depp is sympathetic as the "monster" who creates sculptures that change
the world and the normal people around him. It’s a fairy tale with a tragic
ending that will leave your heart filled with warmth.
LAST AMERICAN VIRGIN
It’s more than just a typical teen romp, this is a male rite of passage.
For any teen who has ever been a virgin, like all of them, this one is your movie.
Patrick Swayze falls for Jennifer Grey and the world finally learns that dancing
is about a lot more than moving your feet. If you know what you’re doing
on the dance floor, a lot more should be moving.
If anything, this film should be inspiration for men who sideline themselves when
the dance floor opens up. Get this movie, get a dance instructor, get your girl
and get it on. You can thank me later.
BRING IT ON
Wow! Woo! The best film about cheerleading ever! Yeah!
Kirsten Dunst’s chemistry with Jesse Bradford oozes with innocence, longing
and stolen glimpses of underpants.
Molly Ringwald owned female teen angst in the 1980s, and here she shines as the
girl pursuing the wrong guy. Or is she?
Okay, Molly may not be the hottest female on the planet, but her virginal good
girl looks made her the unattainable girl everyone wanted both on and off screen.
Yes, Tom Cruise actually made teen movies. Rebecca De Mornay is a hooker with
a heart that takes Tom’s innocence in more ways than one. In addition to
a killer soundtrack, Risky Business has the hottest sex scene on a train ever
put on film.
PRETTY IN PINK
Molly Ringwald is a little more grown-up, but still as innocent in this.
Nicolas Cage is a bad boy who ends up with a Valley girl played by the cuddly
cute Deborah Foreman. Cage and Foreman are opposites and you know how those attract.
The inclusion of the ‘80s hit song "Million Miles Away" makes this
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S ROMEO + JULIET
It’s a modern day twist on a Shakespeare classic. Leo DiCaprio woos Claire
Danes and while the results are mixed, there’s no doubt that chicks dig the
It’s refreshing to hear Porky’s referred to as a classic, because upon
release of this nudity-filled teen romp, it was dismissed as juvenile drivel.
Nothing could be further from the truth as the film contains deeper layers than
one would admit upon first viewing.
This film was the inspiration for movies like American Pie and the nudity is completely
innocent. Really, it is.
