Movie buffs will be forever spoiled by this era of cinema, because it’s the era that bequeathed us jewelry cinematographic such as 10 things i hate about you, Drive me crazy, I can hardly wait, and She is all that. These great movies warned audiences against sheep, introduced us to Laney Boggs’ falafel hat, and used a pair of Skechers and a Prada backpack to illustrate the difference between “I like” and “I like “. Teen movies from the late 90s/early 2000s are all quotable, re-watchable, untouchable things.
