There's no doubt that the streaming service is reawakening our love for teen movies, and thankfully, this August Netflix has its share of unforgettable titles about high school, friendships, and first love tucked away in the service's vast streaming library. In fact, there are so many funny, heartbreaking, and downright classic movies about teens available to stream, you could spend the next few months channeling your year-old self and swooning over Oliver James all over again. From new favorites to '80s classics, these are the best teen movies streaming on Netflix right now.
Girly movies and "chick flicks" are as popular as they are for a reason. They usually include a lot of love, a lot of laughter, a lot of tears, and a lot of happy endings for the most part. Girly movies are often times super relatable for movie viewers who would consider themselves to be romantics at heart.
Bring It On gave us a rare glimpse into the lives of the cheerleaders who were usually minor, bitchy characters in other '00s movies. The first in a long line of classic Lindsay Lohan '00s movies, Life-Size allowed us all to realise a dream we never even knew we had: our favourite doll coming to life, and turning into an incredibly successful '90s supermodel. Let's face it: it was probably inappropriate for us to be watching Coyote Ugly at a young age and deciding which character we'd most like to be.

If you grew up in the '90s and s, Disney Channel Original Movies taught you how to navigate middle school, what to wear, and that your best friend of the opposite sex is definitely in love with you. Through the twin wonders of Netflix and YouTube, we recently rekindled our passion for this very specific art form. Some movies were just as awesome as we remembered, portraying male and female characters as equals in every way and showcasing kick-ass women that inspired us as awkward tweens.
Teen dramas are the best dramas when it comes to TV. The high schools look nothing like real life. The clothes are iconic.
Adventure awaits for our budding new wizard. Rated PG. The '90s classic follows a group of young girls who want to turn their baby-sitting jobs into a legit summer camp, but there's a grumpy old neighbor who's determined not to let that happen.
With the release of Paper Towns right around the corner, it seems that 'girly' movies are hogging all the action once again. All the pink and swirly font on the posters can be scary, and a story based on a young woman's coming-of-age may seem like a purely female touchstone, but many girly teen movies actually appeal to a wide variety of audiences, including males and adults. The film must star a female protagonist, or prominently feature a female as part of the story. She must be in high school or high school-aged sorry Legally Blonde and Pitch Perfect.
Sign in. PG min Comedy, Drama, Romance. The story centers on a year-old girl who keeps a diary about the ups and downs of being a teenager, including the things she learns about kissing.
