Top 7 Teen Movie Characters

7. Marc from Empire Records

I was so tempted to use Warren, and omit Marc altogether.  But, I had this crush on Ethan Embry in the late 90’s, so he won the #7 spot.  Also, this clip is one of the best parts of the film. (The movie’s not real deep).

Notable Line:

We mustn’t dwell… no, not today. We CAN’T. Not on Rex Manning day!

6. Allison from Breakfast Club

She shook out dandruff then transformed via mascara.

Notable line:

I never did it either. I’m not a nymphomaniac. I’m a compulsive liar.

5. Lloyd Dobler from Say Anything

I could have made him #1, but that would be expected.

Notable line:

I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don’t want to do that.

4.Cynthia from Dazed and Confused

Cynthia was chosen only because of her red ‘fro.  If her hair was not so fantab, Mathew McConaughey would be in this position.

Notable Quote:

Why’d we even come here?

3. Duckie From Pretty in Pink

I’da picked Duckie.   Dumb girl.

Notable line:

May I admire you again today?

2. Mouth from The Goonies

The Goonies teeters between the children’s and teen genre.  Corey Feldman was thirteen or fourteen when it came out, so I’ll let it count.

Notable line:

Your looks are kinda pretty, when your face isn’t screwing it up.

1. Daniel from The Karate Kid

karate-kid-

Duh, It’s Daniel-san!  Everyone alive has seen this movie.  How many teen movies has your great grandma Ethel seen?  The answer is one.

Notable Line:

Wouldn’t a fly swatter be easier?

    I love that Marc made it in your countdown-
    Every gal has a movie they watch over and over again in high school, and Empire Records was mine.

    Though, for a slap of creepiness- in the 70’s my dad looked JUST LIKE Matthew McConaughey’s character- though with black hair. Almost the same age, really.

    You nailed number 2. That is my favorite line!

  3. Dan says:

    I hate to say it but I’ve never seen Empire Records of Better off Dead. Does this mean I have to revoke my ’80’s Geek cred card?

  4. Greg says:

    I love Ally Sheedy!

    Nowhere were Ferris Bueller or Cameron Frye mentioned.
    And even if Allison Reynolds and Duckie made the list, the fact that Cameron nor Ferris did makes this fail. And it makes you fail.
