SmackPoll: Back-to-School Comedies

SmackPoll: Back-to-School Comedies

For some kids, the end of summer means the loss of freedom and an end to sleeping late. For others, it means a chance to go shopping for school supplies! Pens, notebooks, folders, and (if you’re old enough to remember the ’80s) a Trapper Keeper.

Sure, school sucks hard at times, but it’s also a great opportunity for comedy. At least, Hollywood thinks so.

Our picks for best back-to-school comedies (most recent to oldest):

  • Bad Teacher (2011)
  • Easy A (2010)
  • Superbad (2007)
  • Napoleon Dynamite (2004)
  • Mean Girls (2004)
  • Election (1999)
  • Clueless (1995)
  • Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)
  • The Breakfast Club (1985)
  • Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

All month long, Movie Smackdown! is saluting the back-to-school mentality by featuring some classic comedies set in high school and college. And we want you – our loyal Smackheads – to vote on your favorite movie.

Tell your friends and classmates to vote early and often. We’ll post the results at the end of the month.
