I want to share the impacts of five of my favorite flicks from this sub-genre to remind you of their existences, and also to inspire you to look for something new within them. The following movies perfectly encapsulate what being a teenager is supposed to be, but never is.
What pop culture have you experienced either with your kids -- or with your parents -- where suddenly an unexpected cringe-inducing moment occurred? I asked a few of my friends this question, and here's what I was told.
Channing was 34 when she was cast as Rizzo, the eader of the Pink Ladies. Her performance practically steals the movie. Yet she was old enough to play Rizzo's mother. One thing's for sure: we'll never again see a bunch of 30-year-old's cast as high school students.
