They like different kinds of movies, movies which cater specifically to their wishes and personalities. In this article, we list the top 10 teen movies, movies which teenagers will definitely love watching.
1. The Breakfast Club
This movie, one of the Ted Hughes classics, is about a group of children in detention early on a Saturday morning.

The ultimate teenager classic. Who can forget Jim trying his best to get the sexy girl from school into the sack? With corny jokes, dark humor, and lots of good old fashioned American dirty comedy, this is one movie that every teenager out there will enjoy watching.
3. Pretty in Pink
One of the most famous teen romantic-comedies out there, also by the famous Ted Hughes.

4. Not Another Teen Movie
The most famous of the teen-movie spoofs out there, which directly makes fun of stereotyping in teenage films. A highly entertaining movie that will get you laughing no matter what.
5. 10 Things I Hate About You
If you like the late Heath Ledger, this is the film for you. It’s a take-off on a Shakespearean play “The Taming of the Shrew”, and has all the elements of a classic teen movie –an unattainable, moody girl, the “don’t give a damn” guy, and a bet!
6. Bring It On
