Clueless Reunion

I had so many people send me e-mails yesterday asking me to post about the Clueless reunion so here you go. I have no problem with a Clueless reunion. I liked the movie a lot. I thought it was really cute and stars so many people who are still in the business that it is an exception for a teen movie. Have you noticed that the teen movies that you still talk about a decade or two after their release are the ones that generally starred people who are still working and are still popular. Ferris Bueller. Clueless. Pretty In Pink. Can't Hardly Wait. There are lots more, but take a look at some teen movie that did horribly and see how many of the teen actors are still around. Not the adult actors, but the teens. What was your favorite teen movie?

Goonies definitely :p

Sixteen Candles is my favorite. However I do have a weird soft spot for Can't Hardly Wait. Although I don't usually admit that.

Alicia said...

Can't Buy Me Love.. The African Ant Eeater Ritual!!!

strawberrygirl said...

I saw the clueless reunion picture in entertainment weekly last night and I noticed they had someone holding a picture of Brittany Murphy. Still so sad.

smashbash said...

I am a 90s child. So clueless was a good one. She's all that, was probably one of my more favorites (I have said that before). Never been kissed was good. And for classic teen movies I love love Ferris Bullers days off and also Better Off Dead (I watched that so much I broke the VHS)

Jeneral said...

Weird Science!

DewieTheBear said...

Heathers. Winona forever!

Wee S said...

I was a 90's teen as well so for me the definitive one was 10 Things I Hate About You - oh Heath and JGL...

Clueless would be up there as well though wasn't really a fan of She's All That.

Tuxedo Cat said...

The Breakfast Club

childeroland said...

Some Kind of Wonderful
War Games (if that counts)
Ferris Bueller

Loved Clueless, have shown it to my 8 year old daughter, who loves it too. Ironic that for such a girl's movie - the director was also female - the two big talents to come out of it were Donald Faison and Paul Rudd. The female actors have had noticeably minor careers, although Stacie Dash was and is very pretty.

Rick Wrinklebottom said...

Stacey Dash seriously must have sold her soul to the devil so that she never ages...girl looks phenomenal for someone in her mid-40's, practically the same as she did 17 years ago!

I'm with Wee- 10 things is my fav. HL was my crush for awhile after that came out.

Let's not forget about Scream either.

Wee S said...

Ahh bobbi I loved Scream too! The 90s were amazin'. Kids today don't know what they're missing with all these remakes.

Suzzique said...

Breakfast Club

SusanB said...

I read the Entertainment Weekly article last night also. Especially enjoyed the St. Elsewhere reunion. That's the only medical show I've every really liked.

Amy in MI said...

A lot of the reunions were awesome in EW

Lauren said...

She's All That
10 Things I Hate About You
Save the Last Dance

smashbash said...

I feel bad for leaving out 10 things I hate about you. I loved loved loved Heath. The paintball scene is one of my favorites in that movie.

Magness said...

Any Roll Bounce fans out there?

timebob said...

lets not forget Brittany Murphy was in Clueless(and it was her first big movie) and honestly was the best thing about it.

"Rollin wit da Homies"...

RIP BM

eris hilton said...

Brittany Murphey, you are missed. I hope not sporadically.

jennifer hansen said...

seriously! the 90s >>>>> todays crap

Sarah said...

Mean Girls and Clueless. My love for Mean Girls is why I still have a soft spot for Lohan

Ingrid Superstar said...

MAN WHY YA'LL GOTTA WASTE MY FLAVA!? DAMN!

Favorite teen movie will always be Better Off Dead. It just hit me hard as a kid.

timebob said...

who knew out of all the actors on Clueless Paul Rudd would emerge as the biggest star of them all.

BubbleKitten said...

I loved that movie!

Cornbread said...

90s kid as well...LOVED Clueless and 10 Things, those are my fave from our era! We really did have a TON of decent teen flicks, as did the 80s, so I feel pretty bad for today's teens as well...they have NO idea what they're missing.

Classic teen movies, I just can't get enough of Say Anything, but I've always had a crush on John Cusack. Pretty in Pink would be my second fave classic. JAKE RYAN!

BubbleKitten said...

I loved Teen Witch. TAKE THAT! Id watch that over & over.

Also liked Heathers & Can't Buy Me Love.

Unknown said...

Weird Science and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Lola said...

Ferris Bueller is my favorite movie of all time (not just teen movie). Clueles is also one of my favorites. My daughter and I watched it last weekend and she loved it.

@chileroland, I love War Games too! Ally Sheedy was the best!

Lelaina Pierce said...

I think they all pretty much look the same, but yeah, Stacey Dash looks especially amazing.

I am a teen movie junkie! Clueless is probably my favorite teen movie, but I also LOVED Can't Hardly Wait, 10 Things I Hate About You and Never Been Kissed. I own the soundtracks to all these movies too.

Lola said...

Who's the woman behind the chick who played Amber (who looks pretty amazing too)?

Popnursing said...

All things John Hughes.

42 years old and still crush on Jake Ryan.

Lola said...

Ahhh...Ms. Geist.

Sixteen candles

Mango said...

Sixteen Candles (Jack Ryan was so hot but Anthony Michael Hall imo STOLE that movie.)
Heathers
Clueless

CDAN Reader said...

Hello? Fast Times at Ridgemont High! That movie illustrated my life exactly when it came out. I was going to the mall, trying to score Van Halen tickets. I saw it in the theater when it premiered (yes, I’m OLD) and I was like: “How do they know? This if my life!”

I also loved Jawbreaker, it was deliciously over the top and gets NO air play on cable re-runs compared to Mean Girls which is on every freakin’ 5 minutes. “Liz Per is the cat’s meow”...

feraltart said...

The Breakfast Club & Pretty in Pink.

Reese said...

Favorite teen movies were Ridgemont High, Ferris Bueller and Say Anything. Heathers was good too.

TheOtherJulia said...

Dazed and Confused
Does Troop Beverly Hills count?
Clueless

Wee S said...

No word of a lie guys, but I've just started my teacher training and our mentor in our placement school is the complete double of Ms.Stoeger! She's a PE teacher too! Very distracting in meetings when all you can think of is Amber's line during the tennis lesson and trying not to laugh!

TheOtherJulia said...

And Footloose. Can't beat the "Bacon Angry Dance"

Lyla Lou said...

Love all the ones mentioned already- But have to add Varsity Blues. And maybe American Pie.

Cryscee said...

Clueless!! So sad for no Brittany Murphy :-( and Heathers. "Lick it up, Baby. Lick it up."

Jessie said...

Well, I guess we know the picture of Dorian Gray is in possession of Stacey Dash. She is amazing.

I watched Uptown Girls the other night an started crying about Brittany Murphy. Possibly about other things too.

Clueless is just the best.

Hazeldazel said...

Better Off Dead (I want my Two Dollars!!)
Fast Times
Clueless

E Gee Be said...

Pop nursing, you took the words right out of my mouth! And yes CDANreader! Fast times came out when I was in middle school. It basically taught me how to be a teenager. The one that is most like our town and high school is Dazed and Confused, only if it was set in the 80s instead of the 70s.

wenx said...

Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, Some Kind of Wonderful...John Hughes was da man.

Also St. Elmo's Fire, The Sure Thing, and Dead Poet's Society. Ok, SEF & DPS might not be "technically" teen movies, but they were to me ;)

lakeuniongirl said...

I knew! LOVED him the minute I saw him. And I was in my twenties when it came out.

Sherry said...

Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Lost Boys, and Pretty in Pink although most the teen movies ocurred in my late 20's so they seemed a little silly to me. Fast Times and American Grafitti is my teen movie era.

lakeuniongirl said...

Valley Girl
Say Anything
All 80's John Hughes except Pretty in Pink (James Spader was the only good thing in that movie)
Fast Times...
Clueless
Ten Things...
Superbad was pretty hilarious

AndrewBW said...

I suppose "Animal House" doesn't really count as a teen movie ...

"Clueless" really was cute though.

Monica said...

Girls just want to have fun! Sarah Jessica Parker, Hellen Hunt, Shannen Doerty!

Chismosa Street said...

Stand By Me, Lost Boys, Goonies, Lucas, Pretty in Pink
