I saw it first as a teen.

I'm not sure what a Teen Movie is. If American Pie and sequels are an example, then I don't think I actually like any!

(Hmm - I do quite like Ferris Bueller's Day Off though)

In my mind, a "teen movie" is like one of those 1980's John Hughes movies: Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, or Breakfast Club.

Until I remember something I like better, I'll go with Ferris...

Perhaps one can include others in the "teen movie" genre, such as:
"American Grafitti"
"Fast Times at Ridgemont High"
"War Games"
"Risky Business"
"Napolean Dynamite"
"A Bronx Tale"
"Rocket Science"

I like Footloose. I'm a Kevin Bacon fan. :)

Rebel Without a Cause is an acceptable 'teen movie'.

Ernest Goes to Camp is MY favorite teen movie.

. . . what? That's not a teen movie? Okay, you're right. It's more mature than that.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Oh, Yeaaaah.

Tough to pick between Ferris Bueller and Fast Times at Ridgmont High as my favorite teen movie so I'll pick Better off Dead instead. The great thing is I was in high school when all of those came out. Ah, the good 'ol 80's...

Tough to top The Breakfast Club for teen movies.

I did like War Games and Red Dawn. Don't know that I would call them teen movies though, just because the main character was younger.

I would define a teen movie as one that not only appeals to a younger audience (back to the future, for example), but is also focusing on the subject of high school life, teen angst, etc.

I'm surprised no one has given the nod to Heathers.

What, no love for "Porkies"? After all it's success was directly responsible for "A Christmas Story" being made. As a standalone film, I also like "Better Off Dead".

I would go with The Breakfast Club and Ferris...I have a big soft-spot for Weird Science as well.

I also have very fond memories of Teen Wolf (starring Michael J. Fox) but a friend recently said it's not as good as I remember it being (having said that, all I can actually remember is the van-surfing scene and an amazing basket-ball shot at the end, so it may just be the nostalgia kicking in).

Ferris & American Graffiti

Anyone seen an obscure film called Fandango with a young K Costner? Not great overall, but it does have a fantastic example of comic timing in a scene with a broken down car, a fast train, and a long length of steel cable ...
