Top 5 High School Comedies

Guest Author - Sarah Fierro

High school comedies top box office lists by drawing in large numbers of teens for a weekend night out. Most high school comedies are geared at a certain age group, but some of them have a timeless classic novelty that draws fans in when they just canít grow up! (The top 5 are considered in order below.)

Superbad came out in theaters on August 17, 2007. It grossed Sony over $121 million. Jonah Hill and Michael Cera built comedy movie fame from their performances as main characters Seth and Evan in this hilarious picture. Bill Hader and Seth Rogen added their own charismatic sense of humor by playing two young-at-heart police officers.

Porkyís is an 80s film released March 19, 1982. Fox brought in over $111 million with the movie. A group of high school boys attempting to lose their virginity always brings laughs from the crowd.

American Pie was my favorite movie of the 90s, drawing in crowds beginning July 9, 1999. Universal made over $102 million and added a high school movie classic to its ranks. While parents were embarrassed to watch the film with their high school kids, teenagers were equally embarrassed to laugh at the comedic view of everyday high school life in front of their parents.

Mean Girls aired in movie theaters April 30, 2004. Girls of every age went to see Lindsay Lohan play the main character in the film, and brought Paramount about $86 million. Lohanís character rises in the ranks of her high schoolís popularity contest, before falling flat on her face again and learning a lesson about friendship.

Ferris Beullerís Day Off is a classic from the 80s that came out June 13, 1986. Paramount made about $70 million in its lifetime in theaters. Many teenagers minds had long ago dreamed up the filmís storyline of ditching school for a day and taking over the town. It is now a recess special in high schools around the world.

Honorable mentions for the High School Comedies Top 5 category include #6 Bring it On, a Universal film, was released August 25, 2000 and grossed about $68 million. It is still a favorite amongst high school cheerleaders and younger wanna-be middle school kids. Fox Searchlight put out #12 Napoleon Dynamite on June 11, 2004 and made almost $45 million. #14 John Tucker Must Die aired in theaters in July 28, 2006 and grossed about $41 million for Fox.
