30 Great Teen Movies
The Half Ass Bad Ass

Teen movies are something you either love or hate. It's probably because they vary from great, deep coming of age stories, to badly acted, corny, predictable films. However if you're like me, you love them all.

They make me laugh, smile, snicker, and sometimes even shed a tear. So here are my list of my favorite teen movies, in all their deep, cheesy, and lovely glory.


1. The Edge of Seventeen (2016)
