Some good Teen Movies were made in the 1980’s. Movies such as “Just One of the Guys” and “Some Kind of Wonderful” portray typical teen life without being too outlandish. Many teens, even today, can relate to the lives of the teens that are in these movies, and many teens have encountered the same or similar problems depicted in the movies.
Although many of these movies are low budget, they do a great job at relating to the needs and lives of teen viewers. For instance, “Just One of the Guys” tells the story of a young woman who longs to gain a summer internship writing for a newspaper, but feels that she didn’t earn it just because she is female. This is a problem that is all too real, intriguing many teen girls.
If teenagers from any generating want to see a film that directly relates to common problems, they should explore the many movies filmed during this decade in order to find something entertaining that can be related to.
