'The Outsiders' And 12 Other Movies You Definitely Watched On A Bulky Rolling TV During School

'The Outsiders' And 12 Other Movies You Definitely Watched On A Bulky Rolling TV During School

Because nothing was better than movie day.


Elementary, middle, high school and college students alike all live for a good movie day... especially when it takes the place of a lecture. Many times we watched movies after finishing a novel in English class or on a rainy day for indoor recess. No matter the reason we all had our favorite "school" movies and the ones we dreaded watching.

But do you remember any of them?

Odds are it's probably time for you to rewatch some of these films.

Angels in the Outfield


As a child, I loved this indoor recess classic! Despite the fact that I knew nothing about baseball, I did know that I loved storyline.

Freedom Writers


This one always pulled at my heartstrings. I always felt for these kids that were dealt a less than fair hand in life but the story being told was just so beautiful.

Supersize Me

If you didn't watch this one in middle school science, my apologies. If you need a reason to give up fast food... this may be it.

The Outsiders


In 8th grade we all laughed at the names of the characters when we first began reading the book. By the end, we fell in love with the characters. And then when (SPOILER ALERT) Johnny dies... we lost cried even though we knew it was coming.

Bridge to Terabithia


Before Josh Hutcherson assumed the role of Peeta Mellark, he played alongside of AnnaSophia Robb in this English class favorite.

The Sandlot


In reality, I absolutely hated this one. I'd put my head down or do just about anything other than watch it.


Because everyone loves a good dog movie.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas


This one broke all of out hearts. Despite the extremely dark ending, I'd have to say this movie was a great way to show us the realities of those who lived during the Holocaust. So chilling.

Charlotte's Web


If you're anything like me you probably don't remember this one all that much other than the fact that you had to create a diorama of the farm as a second grade project.

Pay It Forward

This one had you doing "good deeds" and hoping that the trend would continue.



Although it's a little cheesy at points, every child needs to see this movie because the truth is every word said in the cyber world still effects the person reading it.

My Side of the Mountain

I don't think I've ever had so many questions in my life... but I guess kudos to Sam for making it in the wild.

Toy Story


And of course, this gem.

6 Places in New York City Every "Friends" Fan Needs to Visit

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

It's been a long, long time.


This past week, the Jonas Brothers released a song and music video starring their wives (and in Joe's case, fiancee), completely shocking fans given the fact that there was pretty much no prior warning.

And if the rumors are true...I hope to find new favorites soon.

1. "Inseparable"

2. "Australia"

4. "Shelf"
