Summary

In this humorous look at teen movies from 1955 to 2010, the author gives a synopsis of each movie and the lousy lesson that it conveys. The life lesson of the Breakfast Club is “With the right mix of stereotypical personalities, a day in detention can become a life-changing experience.” The life lesson of Mean Girls is “The best way to take the popular girl down: Be more abusive than she is. Then apologize to the whole school and all will be well.” Each movie includes a funny summary, the life lesson taught, as well as quizzes, stills from the movie, and a memorable quote.
