The Mike & Carla Morning Show

Weekdays 5:00am - 10:00am

Growing up, a lot of us went to the theater to see a flick, but if you think about it, growing up, what was your “teen” movie? That’s what The Mike & Carla Morning Show talked about this morning and wanted to find out. A list of “teen” movies came out and you won’t be surprised at what movies made the list.

Entertainment put out an article listing movies like, “Rebel Without A Cause”, “American Graffiti”, “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, “Super Bad” and “Ladybird” all making the list. But growing up, what was your movie? Mike O’Brian mentioned the movie “Sandlot” and “Stand By Me”, because of the friendship of the boys in both movies. However, the one that was his “teen” movie, it had to be “The Summer of 42”. Although the plot is centered around WWII, the movie came out in 1971 and was very relatable to what teen boys at that time.

Think about it…what was your “teen” movie?

Now Carla Rea, well that’s a different story. She quickly pointed out a couple of movies that she would claim as her movie. “St. Elmo’s Fire” and “Breakfast Club” registered with Rea…that latter being one about detention of course! Hmmm…interesting right?

None the less, most people that texted in created a great list of movies from their young years growing up. “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” also registered very high on our list. Let’s be real here, how many of us can relate to that movie. No matter what year you graduated, we all knew a “Ferris Bueller” or it was us!

Other movies that appeared in the article, included “Grease”, “Valley Girl” and a lot more! If there was a genre of movies that had more than it’s share of titles, it was those movies kids would relate to in some way, shape or form.

Listen to the segment and see if one movie comes to mind for you…and enjoy!
