I don’t feel any shame for still enjoying this to this day:

Maybe Robin Lively should be embarrassed for taking part in this Teen Wolf rip-off.  But this brings the awesome like nothing else.

It should be noted that I had no idea what the mechanics of a French kiss included until I saw this movie.  Pretty much everything I know about relationships I learned from an 80s movie.  Which explains an awful lot when I think about it…

If I was 10 instead of 27 when this came out I would probably have eaten this up.

And I know there is definitely nothing cool about this candy coated fluff.  I love Degrassi the Next Generation but that’s teens with edge — drugs, abortions, STDs.  In the first High School Musical Troy and Gabriela don’t even kiss.

So what would account for the fact that I will watch this every time it’s on?  Maybe I’m a sucker for Kenny Ortega (even if you don’t know who he is you’ve seen his moves in Dirty Dancing).  Maybe it’s the fact that it’s the story of two teens who broke free from their molds to pursue what they really enjoy.  Probably it’s the fact that I would have LOVED IT if people suddenly started revealing their secret desires while singing and dancing in my high school cafeteria.
