There’s no better way to kick off our season two theme than with the legendary cheerleading movie that taught us important lessons like: what a standing back tuck was, how to have "cheer-sex" with someone, and most importantly, when you get caught ripping someone off, you should definitely like… STOP RIPPING THEM OFF! This movie went on to have FIVE horrendous sequels made out of it, but it just makes watching the OG one even better! Come for the spanky pants and crimped hair, stay for the...

We thought we hated this movie. Then we watched it and realized that yeah we kind of did but that made it that much more fun. Ali Larter’s Dulcie turned out to be our hero alongside the heroic punching bag Designated Dave. Drive Me Crazy was a movie made to get us pumped for the iconic Britney Spears song, and we can’t be that mad at that. @[email protected]
Kelly loves this movie. Betsy hates it. Listen to the Betties duke it out in our MOST CONTROVERSIAL PODCAST YET.

Also starring Eugene Levy’s eyebrows. @[email protected]

Remember when you stopped wearing overalls and ponytails because Laney Boggs showed us that’s all you had to do to become the artistic counter culture queen of high school? As long as the bobos on your super freak body were properly ogled by some of teen movie’s frattiest soccer players you too could be Freddie Prinz Junior’s prize! Who is Gutenberg?
