A movie usually featuring actors in their mid- to late twenties, revolving around the 'geek' and their friends, and the 'popular kid' and their friends. There is at least one big party in the movie, where the geek gets dressed up and everyone is amazed, but gets spurned by the 'popular' kid. These movies are all exactly the same, and are summed up very nicely in Not Another Teen Movie
Not another Teen Movie is my favorite teen movie.
1. A movie that is aimed at the stereotype teen-ager, which usually features the popular football player or cheerleader falling in love with their supermodel-wannabe dreamlover. These movies features crappy jokes, keg parties, sex, and everything else that most teen-agers never experience in their high school years. Much like the Barbie, it perpetuates a false image of the typical teen-ager lifestyle and can only be realized during a drug induced dream.
2. A shock-comedy movie, featuring jokes, situations, and gags that is supposed to make you say, "I can't believe that happened/they did that." These movies are overpraised and STILL not funny. Usually features sex, nudity, drinking, drugs and the cocky, popular, arrogant football player/cheerleader getting their way. Again, falsely perpetuating the teen-age life style that so many adults and parents based their view of teen-agers off of.

Really stupid movies which try to be realistic.
Films for the intelligence impaired
Bob: Hey guuuuuuuuys wanna see a teen movie?
Intelligent people: No. We have intelligence. Fuck off.
Romantic and slightly comical movie aimed at people in their teens. These movies are usually based on multiple failed seduction attempts before the final, successful attempt on prom night. The fact that there is a reformed cool-guy winning over a girl with "sweetness" usually attracts young females to watch these shit movies. Parodized in Not another teen movie
. On the rare occasion, when the movie is made for a male audience, it will not suck.
