    Default What movie defined your generation?

    My bf and I recently watched American Pie Reunion and made this face when we were reminded that the main characters were the graduating class of 1999 ... our year. With both horror and delight, we finally accepted that this was the movie of our generation. You gotta admit, the series has an innocent undertone despite its over zealous theme.

    The other is the Fast and the Furious series. I think the first one came out the year we were allowed to drive without supervision.

    What was the movie of your gen? Try to name a serious and funny one ... the more embarrassing the better. :wink:

    LOL good thread!
    Well, Silence of the Lambs coincided with university, and sort of put me (and countless others) on that sort of CSI-y type academic track, but I would have to say that the movie "Singles" captured my generation. I wasn't a huge fan of the movie, but the attitudes, lifestyle and the music...that whole "grunge" scene was pretty spot-on. (And now you know my age! hahahahahahaha!)

    Children. The Beatles Help was released the year I graduated high school. A few years later The Graduate (Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft) took the mantle for college coming of age and finely, thrown in there for definitive, far out fun was Yellow Submarine. I left home shortly thereafter.

    @Momma2Bullies Glad you said "Singles".
    I was thinking the same thing. Wasn't a great movie, but I loved all the bands from Seattle back in the day, and was part of that whole "plaid" movement. Yeah, I think "Singles" is fitting of that generation.

    @Lucy-licious I have to agree with you. That is the first movie that popped in my mind. I graduated in '92 so although I think Breakfast Club & Pretty in Pink was a bit before that year, those both came to mind. (great thread by the way!)

    Me too, Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Having pizza delivered in the middle of class was a crack up.
