Mean Girls (2004)
Tina Fey''s cult classic magnum opus is far more than a teen chick flick. It''s a fantastic insight into the toxic and mean-spirited environment that high school can be.

I Feel Pretty (2018)
High school is usually thought of as the place where people are most insecure, but this phenomenon persists for many individuals until the age of 13.
I Feel Pretty, Amy Schumer''s comedy, tackles this with a protagonist who is constantly ignoring herself due to her low-performing appearance during a SoulCycle session. This changes when she falls and hits her head instead of the woman she denied. Schumer''s genuine humor and self-deprecation help distinguish this from her other work.
I Feel Pretty is available on Amazon Prime Video for rent.
The new Anna Farris and Eugenio Derbez versions are quite good, but you can''t go wrong with the original starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.

When the heiress falls overboard, she develops a terrible case of amnesia, so the carpenter decides to develop an elaborate lie to trick her into believing she is a humble, poor housewife. The result is rather than a pleasant love story with two captivating scenes.
