Have you ever thought about what your teenage years would be like if John Hughes directed, scripted, or produced? No? Like this? The filmmaker, who died in 2009, was responsible for several of the best teen film titles in the 1980s and 1990s. In addition to him, others succeeded in bringing teen films to the screen, clichés at the time, but now considered classics and even cult.
Most of the feature films were also known to the Brazilian audience through Ceso da Tarde, Globo or Cinéma m Casa on SBT, who dreamed of the abolition of school lockers or even uniforms. And when it comes to nostalgia (or curiosity, in the case of someone who wasn’t born then), there’s nothing like reviewing the best teen films of the distant decades.

Oh, and the order of the functions is from oldest to smallest because it’s hard to decide on a final ranking.
Unfortunately there are no great titles like ‘Rental Girlfriend’ (1987), ‘Say What You Want’ (1989) and ‘She’s Awesome’ (1999) in the stream.

Kittens and Cats (1984)

Club of Five (1985)
Another John Hughes title with Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall. This is probably the greatest teen classic of the 1980s.

Pink Shocking Girl (1986)
I swear it’s not on purpose, but it’s just that John Hughes really was the king of 1980s teenage films, working on successive stereotype titles. In “Pretty in Pink” the filmmakers were in charge of the script (and they didn’t like getting the ending to the big screen) and again had their muse Molly Ringwald in the lead role. Although aimed more at a youthful audience, the film also addresses serious issues such as unemployment, alcoholism, and social differences in the United States. and is
Smile from Andy McCarthy and young Jon Cryer. It can be seen on Telecine.
Somebody Special (1987)
Produced and staged by him. You yourself. John Hughes. The dissatisfaction with the ending of ‘The Girl in Pink’ is shocking, the filmmakers decided to retell the story, just changing the protagonist’s style and ending the film in their own way. Also in ‘Some Kind of Wonderful’ are Eric Stoltz (who wanted to be Marty McFly in ‘Back to the Future’ but was replaced by Michael J. Fox), Lee Thompson (yes, Lorraine, Marty’s mother) and Mary Stuart Masterson Actors to see class. The film is available on Telecine.

A story based on the teenage years of screenwriter Eleanor Bergstein. The film is available on Netflix.
These Girls (1988)
If you can’t see young Patrick Dempsey streaming on Rental Girlfriend, at least you can see him on “This Girls” alongside Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly as best supporting actress in Michael As Can’s “A Beautiful Mind” (2001) will. . The film can be viewed on the Amazon Prime Video platform.
Beverly Hills Patties (1995)
A romantic comedy based on Jane Austin’s book “Emma”, “Beverly Hills Patties” is arguably the greatest teenage icon of the 1990s.

10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
To close the list with a flourish, another adaptation of a classic. Yes, “10 Things I Hate About You” is a retelling of “The Tamed Shrew” by William Shakespeare. Walter Stratford, played by Larry Miller, the father of the protagonist Kat, played by Julia Stiles, was asked: “Have you made anyone cry so far?” “No, but it’s three thirty,” said the dog.
