  2. "Teen Wolf"Michael J. Fox plays a teenager who transforms from a nerd who can't score a point in basketball into a werewolf and basketball champ.

This great teen movie was released the same year as Michael's other hit film, "Back to the Future".
  3. "The Breakfast Club" – A group of teens who never spoke to each other in school spend the day in Saturday detention together. This classic teen movie comedy is full of hilarious dialogs and teenage antics.

  5. "Pump Up the Volume" – A nerdy teenage loner enjoys a secret identity as a charismatic and zan pirate radio host. His broadcasts become wildly popular with the local teenagers. This thoroughly entertaining teen movie ends with his arrest, during which his identity was revealed to all the students of Hubert Humphrey High.
