Back to school, back to school, to prove to dad that I’m not a fool…

8 Sep

It’s that time of year again: back to school!  A time of year that brings joy to parents and sadness/longing/jealousy for us post grads (yes, I am talking about myself).  To celebrate this magical time of year, Boston.com polled its readers to see what they thought the best college movies are.  With 20 on the list, I had a few that are on my fav movie list, too.

#19 Drumline—this 2002 gem is the first Nick Cannon movie I ever saw. For someone who hates almost every dance movie that exists, I love Drumline. Nick Cannon is a badass punk, but he rocks the drum like no one’s business.

#7 A Beautiful Mind—this 2001 Best Picture winner is set at and around Princeton University.  One of Russel Crowes’ best roles to date: playing a schizophrenic before he showed the world he actually somewhat of a pscyho in real life. Way to go, Russ.

#6 Legally Blonde—who doesn’t love Legally Blonde?  I saw the Broadway muscial a few years ago, and it made me wish the movie included the music. That good.

# 2 Old School—You’re my boy Blue!

And the favorite college movie of Boston.com readers is…National Lampoon’s Animal House. Not surprising!

See the full list here; are there any college movies that Boston.com readers missed?  What about High School movies?  I’d have to start a list of my favorite movies portraying high school with Mean Girls.  Any other school movies you love?

    I loved A Beautiful Mind and Mona Lisa Smile was pretty good. I think that Pretty in Pink, Better off Dead and Good Will Hunting should have made the list. And definitely Dead Poet’s Society.

    If you’re talking high school, I think Can’t Hardly Wait needs to be in the discussion and it’s probably one that gets lost in the shuffle of Fast Times, Breakfast Club, Dazed & Confused, etc.

    Boston.com’s list kind of upset me – The Waterboy has no business on that list. It’s not half the college football comedy that Necessary Roughness is! Speaking of college football, The Program needed to be on this list too. That said, I was happy to see PCU, Back to School and Nerds make the list.
