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?
