Old School

No matter if you are actually in school or just feeling a little nostalgic for the good old days, there's just something about a fun high school comedy that appeals to almost everyone 
…especially if it's set (or made) in the 80s:

Freaks and Geeks:

Even though the show that ran from 1999-2000 is a cult classic, it took me until now to actually watch it.  I've never seen anything so relatable, touching but also just plain hilarious. The stellar cast (young James Franco!) is just the cherry on top of this masterpiece of a show. And the best, it's available on both Netflix and Amazon Prime. If you check out just one thing from this list, make it this one.

License to Drive:

“An innocent girl, a harmless drive, what could possibly go wrong?” This movie is pretty much the Superbad of the 80s. A hilarious ride (pun intended) from the opening sequence to end, that perfectly captures teenage recklessness in the funniest way possible.

Everybody Wants Some:

Set during the last week before College, Everybody Wants Some is technically not a high school comedy but I just had to put it on the list. I've seen a lot of people calling the movie aimless, but to me that's part of its charm, as it is about that last chance to actually be aimless before it's back to the classroom (or the real world) on Monday.  

What is your favorite high school (or college) comedy?  

Peace, Love, and Lobsters
