12 Throwback Movies To Watch During The Snowpocalypse

So I don’t know about you, but, when I’m snowed in, I like to watch super cringy teen movies. What better way to warm up from the blizzard with a cup of tea and some oldies?

1. "Hairspray" (2007)

So this is one of my favorite movie musicals. The music is catchy and it has a stars like Queen Latifah, John Travolta, James Marsden, Christopher Walken, Amanda Bynes and, of course, Zach Efron. It’s a great movie to sing along to and get a taste of the discrimination that the black community faced in the sixties.

2. A Cinderella Story

This movie is a modern take on a classic fairytale, and I love it. A popular football star falls in love with fellow Princeton applicant, the bullied diner girl. This movie has some great quotes and it is a feel good love story.

3. High School Musical 1, 2 and 3

Yeah, so I made fun of High School Musical when it first came out, but looking back, it was a really quality Disney film. It had dancing, singing, romance, conflict and some great basketball choreography. High School Musical just had its ten-year anniversary, and it was great to see how the cast was doing.

4. Clueless

I love Clueless. That may be due to my slightly unhealthy obsession with Alicia Silverstone or just because it has an equal balance between silly and smart. The movie will always be a favorite of mine, and I will always walk away feeling happy.

5. She's The Man

She's The Man has a lot of cring-worthy moments like when Amanda Bynes's character, Viola, says "dawg" or talks about tampons. I love this movie though because of its Twelfth Night meets Mulan quality. This girl is on a mission, and I'm always a sucker for a strong female lead.

6. The Lizzie McGuire Movie

This movie is great, and It really ruined my expectations for studying abroad. Why can't I become an international popstar for a night? Anyway, this movie had the beautiful yet awkward romance between Gordo and Lizzie. Hey, that's middle school. Am I right? With this movie you'll be singing the tune "This is what dreams are made of" for forever.

7. The Parent Trap (1998)

The Parent Trap is a great film about two girls who find out that they are twins at a summer camp. This movie has drama, humor, friendship, and family love going on. Plus who doesn't love a young and innocent Lindsay Lohan.

8. Pretty in Pink

Who doesn't love a classic Molly Ringwald film? I grew up watching classic 80s films with my parents, and I love the simple storyline, the costumes and the cheesy music.

9. Ella Enchanted

Cinderella has always been my favorite princess, and Anne Hathaway my favorite actress. With the plotting king and his snake, the mentally unstable fairy godmother and a very attractive prince charming this movie racks up to be one of my favorite films. Also what other movie has an ending curtain call, just saying.

10. 10 Things I Hate About You

This is a classic film that has teen angst, sibling quarrels, misunderstanding, and love. Every time I watch this movie, I end up falling for Heath Ledger all over again.

11. 13 Going On 30

13 Going On 30 is a great film about how the choices you make can shape you and change the outcome of your life. I love watching this film because of the fact that the main character, Jenna Rink, realizes that she doesn't need to be cool in middle school to have a great life in the future.

12. Freaky Friday

This movie is always relevant to me, and I always love watching it. From the meddling Chinese restaurant owner to the seriously amazing guitar solo at the end by Jamie Lee Curtis this movie is a serious favorite in my book.

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
