Tied to the 20th anniversary of Bring It On, we hereby dub the next five days Teen Movie Week. Dig up your varsity jacket, pull up to your cafeteria table, and relive your adolescence as we celebrate the best coming-of-age movies ever made.
There is a famous line from Dazed and Confused that is actually infamous. You know the one. Matthew McConaughey delivers it in his classic, molasses-drip of a drawl. That line wouldn’t work now. It shouldn’t have worked then. But it’s a thing that was said that has been quoted and mentioned for lots of reasons, and I’m referencing it now because it makes me think of James Van Der Beek. I keep getting older, but somehow he’s stayed the same age.
