Step forward Garry Mulholland, who, taking his cue from his previous, hugely acclaimed pop culture list books (This is Uncool and Fear of Music), seeks to create a pantheon of the very finest teen movies, or in Garry Mulholland’s words: ‘I’ll be doing what film critics have been loathe to do since the 1950s, and taking the entire subculture of. teen movies seriously, making a constant and compelling argument that Grease and A Nightmare on Elm Street tell us a great deal more about modern life and human nature than Citizen Kane and The Godfather.

Yet until now there has been no book that explores this successful movie sub-genre with any depth. to Fame, Badlands to the Breakfast Club, and National Lampoon's Animal House to Twilight, Garry Mulholland re-evaluates a much maligned genre, and brings it all back again: the good, the bad and the traumatic.

Teen movies come second only to horror movies in my own personal brain cinema, so I was interested to see what Garry Mullholland thought deserved a place in the top 10.

Stranded at the drive-in. What will they say. Monday at school? The above lyric, taken from the song ‘Sandy’ as sung by John Travolta in the film version of Grease, lends this book an appropriate title. Not only do we get a cinema reference, but a neat summing-up of a few of the key elements of teen fiction: thwarted romance, peer pressure, school, the quest for night-time pleasure, fear of humiliation. An outrageous claim? I don’t think so.

From Badlands to Napoleon Dynamite and West Side Story to Twilight, a critical reevaluation of a much maligned genre

Doing what film critics have been loathe to do since the 1950s, this book takes the entire subculture of teen movies seriously, making a constant and compelling argument that Grease and A Nightmare on Elm Street tell viewers a great deal more about modern life and human nature than Citizen Kane and The Godfather. A fundamental way of coping with adolescence, there are many teen movies that have becomes rites of passage to view, yet until now there has been no book that explores this successful movie subgenre with any depth. Arguing that Scream is the smartest meta-movie ever made and Mean Girls is a series of skits on the death of feminism, this book seeks to create a pantheon of the very finest teen movies, including The Breakfast Club, A Clockwork Orange, Donnie Darko, FameHeathers, National Lampoon's Animal HouseRebel Without a Cause, and more.

Teen movies come second only to horror movies in my own personal brain cinema, so I was interested to see what Garry Mullholland thought deserved a place in the top 100.
Some classics ('The Wild One', 'The Outsiders'), some of the really? you really think these are still interesting? (The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink),...and some that were downright brave - Bring It On, Mean Girls, Little Darlings and..Twilight. I still haven't decided whether the choice to include Twilight was a dare, a means of taking the piss from the readers, or a genuinely "I-could-care-less-what-the-hipster-consensus is,Twilight fits the pattern of a really good teen movie". (I hope it's the last one because I love a contrary critic. Mullholland is very opinionated (if you've read Popcorn: Fifty Years of Rock 'n' Roll Movies, you'll know what I mean)- and sometimes makes a bit of a tool of himself (and I don't mean the bits where he's intentionally self-parodying.) Also, we all know how important Buffy The Vampire Slayer is to post-90's film and youth culture; Mullholland manages to slip in a Buffy reference every five films or so. (Presumably his editor is a Buffy fanboy too.) Enough already with the Buffster! Overall I really enjoyed 'Stranded at the Drive-In', but just like 'Popcorn', there's a little too much of the author's 'right-on, I'm a cardcarrying leftie feminist who grew up poor, so I know better' shtick. Great read, interesting choice of films, but just a little overbearing. Mullholland is very good, but he's no Vern.

Many books of this type aren't well crafted, but Garry Mulholland is an above-average writer and a thoughtful critic. Some excellent choices including A Nightmare on Elm Street, Heathers, Mean Girls, the Wild Ones, The Warriors and The Social Network (and no, Stand by Me is not included as the protagonists are 12).
