Within the last few years, TV shows have reinvented the way in which we approach teenage issues. The hit Netflix shows 13 Reasons Why and To All the Boys I've Loved are breaking new ground in the ways we discuss important issues such as bullying, suicide, the intensity of your first real crush, and the need to fit in—acknowledging the reality that navigating this stage of early adulthood isn't nearly as easy as the teen movies of yesteryear would have us believe. And yet, there's something so deliciously enjoyable about the teen rom-coms of the '80s, '90s, and early aughts, with their stock characters, formulaic plots, and happy endings. There's a comfort to their predictability, and a joy in the way that they remind you of a time when all of your emotions were so extreme and life, in all its glory, was wide open with possibility.

Our regrets to any staunch defenders of those two titles.
