Poll Results: Best Teen Comedy

Happy Friday everyone!

I am closing last week’s poll a little early since I will be out of town for the next few days. I have a bright and early flight this morning to Portland, Oregon, a town I have been wanting to visit for years. I am especially looking forward to visiting some of their craft breweries (a few of which are within walking distance of my hotel), and doing some hiking in the beautiful mountains just outside of the city. It’s going to be great to get away, and hey, if you have any suggestions as to what I should see/do while I am there, don’t hesitate to leave a comment. I will try to keep tabs on any updates while I’m away.

Anyway, onto the winner of last week’s Best Teen Comedy poll:


– Superbad: 10 votes
– Fast Times at Ridgemont High: 6 votes
– American Pie: 2 votes
– Road Trip: 1 vote
– Other: 10 Things I Hate About You: 1 vote

In the battle of old vs. new, the new prevailed. Superbad is a freakin’ riot, but I am a little surprised to see it mop up against some classics. No love for Animal House or Porky’s?

This week’s poll is inspired by a very entertaining roundtable discussion from three great movie bloggers: Ian, Fogs and PG Cooper. Vote for your favorite David Fincher film, then stop by and see what those guys had to say!

Have a great weekend everyone! See you next week.

      I thought about including The Breakfast Club (and other John Hughes movies), but they didn’t really fit in with the other films listed. I probably should have labeled this as “teen sex comedies” instead.

    It was a tough pick for me between Animal House and Fast Times but I remember watching Fast Times as a pre-teen and just thinking high school life seemed so awesome. SuperBad definitely invokes the spirit of those older films better than most teen stuff that’s out there.

      I’m shocked Animal House didn’t get a single vote, but I’m with you on Superbad being one of the best comedies in recent years. Love that movie.

    Seven easily. So atmospheric and unsettling. I used to really like Fight Club the first couple times I saw it. But then I grew up ahah πŸ˜‰

    I don’t think I’ve seen very many of this genre so I skipped the poll πŸ™‚ I’d have voted for ’10 Things I Hate About You’ hands down.

    Happy you’re enjoying that series Eric, it’s been a lot of fun to do. Ian had a great idea to start that thing.

    Meanwhile, it’s opened my eyes to some repulsive prejudices out there against one of the greatest films ev-er, the movie that got my Vote – FIGHT CLUB. Which is leading, by the way… haters!!

    πŸ˜€ Good to see Fast Times represented well last week at least, too.

    • Eric says:

      It’s weird to see the general perception of Fight Club change over the years, or at least it has seemed that way to me. I don’t get the hate for it, and apparently this week’s voters don’t either πŸ˜‰
