If you liked 'If...', try T.A.P.S. (Sean Penn, Tom Cruise etc)

Tom plays divorced father of 2, Ray Chigley in this sweet Rom-Com; Sean Penn plays his rival in love for the heart of Renee Zelwiger, as well as his business rival. When Penn's Electrical supply company comes up against Cruise's Plumbing company for a vital government contract, sparks are sure to fly !

Shurely Shome Mishtake?
How have people forgotten Napoleon Dynamite? And Battle Royale.
Elephant had it's moments as well. Nicely shot if not a little bit too full of its own self-importance..

Good call on all three Lill. Well as you say elephant more had its moments, than being a good film. On an unrelated note why is Gus Van Sant allowed to carry on making films?

Loved the opening shot (was it the opening shot?) in elephant of the car being driven, evocative of GTA I thought which was very clever considerign the subject matter.

Both Battle Royale's excellent, but are they 'school movies' ? OK, they feature school kids, but ...
If just 'featuring' school kids, then I'd also recommend 'Machine Girl', (and the first 'Lord of The Flies' ?).

And St Trinians and Carry on Teacher ?

Saucy Schoolgirls 7?

Ive not seen that Pete .. but im going too !

To be honest the Saucy Schoolgirls series kind of lost it's way after the first 2, they replaced a lot of the original cast and started recycling plot lines. I still kept watching them out of a misguided sense of loyalty, but there was some definite diminishing returns going on there

I may have got them confused with the Police Academy movies, I'm not sure

I can appreciate the way way you feel ..

Personally I find American cinema to be of higher quality "The Bare t1t project" and "look who's porking" where real masterpieces, the character developement in both are 2nd to none!

John Huges nailed it with Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Breakfast Club and those films should be seen by every teenager. I would also like to add Animal House, Porky's, Real Genius, Weird Science and Screwballs just for the smut...And if you want to mention horror, Carrie should be at the top of the list.

I know its set in (and out of) a college, but 'Good Will Hunting'.

Scariest school movie: Unman, Wittering and Zigo (1971) starring David Hemmings and Carolyn Seymour. Maybe second scariest is Reach for Glory (1962) aka The Custard Boys.

Favorite school movie is The Browning Version (1951) with Michael Redgrave.

The History Man I think is set in a school (university actually). Then there's The Prime of Miss Jean Brody; St. Trinians. There's one with Robin Williams in I think, don't think that's The History Man, but can't think of its name.
