I'm feeling very Pat Benatar, or better yet, very Fast Times At Ridgemont High, in this ensemble. The oversized grey tee, the red skinnies, black pumps. I know I went to high school in the 80s, but dammit, I still love this silhouette.
Fast Times is DEFINITELY at the top of the list for me. Great music, bitchin fashion, and Sean Penn in a Baja shirt? What could possibly be better? Oh yeah, Phoebe Cates in a bikini.
The Breakfast Club. Duh. Who DIDN'T want to get locked into their school library with the jock and the rebel after The Breakfast Club?
The Outsiders. Taking a trip on the way back machine here. Has there been a movie filled with more eye candy since The Outsiders? Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Tom Cruise and Emilio Estevez (before they both became hot, and WAY before Tom Cruise became a weirdo), Rob Lowe and C. Thomas Howell? Sigh. I came for the Rob Lowe, but stayed for the C. Thomas Howell. Stay gold, Ponyboy.
American Pie. Band geek, party of one here. Of COURSE I loved American Pie, though I must admit that nothing QUITE as untoward happened on any band outings that I took part in. Unfortunately.
So let's hear it. What were YOUR favorite high school movies? And I mean it. I ain't even gonna lie - the lack of comments lately is totally harshing my mellow.
