High School Movie Cliches

Another school year is just around the corner. Are you ready?

I want to share a list of high school movies that make me laugh and the cliche they epitomize the most. Do you have a fav? If you are following along, you know I lean toward the warm and fuzzy more than anything else, so this list does not include horror/noir (I still have no intention of watching Carrie) and I’ve steered clear of TV fare this time (that being said, I really loved Glee).

Cliche #1 The new kid in school

10 things I hate about you

Cliche #2 A nerd gets a makeover

The Duff

Cliche#3 The unbearable teacher/principal

Ferris Bueller

Cliche #4 The big ol’ bully

Shannon is movie-obsessed and her infatuation with the silver screen can be traced back to a single event. After helping her move into her first apartment, her mom left her with this parting remark: “Don’t spend all your money at the movies!” From that point on, thanks to her library card, Shannon continues to feed her obsession! She is the library's Database Administrator.
