Thursday sure came early this month! Thursday Movie Picks is a year-long event hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, in where she gives a theme for the day and we list down three movies we associate with it. This week’s theme is teenage comedies. There are tons of movies to choose from, but I thought I’d make my picks female-centered this week.
Drop Dead Gorgeous is a movie that I didn’t expect I’d like. The premise revolved around the beauty pageant scene, primarily focusing on the competition between the teens at Mount Rose, Minnesota. Kirsten Dunst plays a likable lead, the one to root for and the movie diverges to the politics involved in the pageant, just for people to be crowned. It features a lot of familiar faces, and it was quite enjoyable.
Mean Girls is one iconic movie, being celebrated for its memorable scenes, quotable lines and the all around awesomeness that the movie has provided. The movie was so much fun and unexpectedly, a really good teen movie. This is also Lindsay Lohan’s best role to date.
Easy A launched Emma Stone into stardom - carrying her zany comedy style over, she was easily likable and pretty much carried the movie. The premise of the movie seemed a bit weird (paying her to pretend do guy-girl stuff for bragging rights), but with Stone’s charm, the movie easily won me over.
