These are the best movies to make you feel like a teen again.
How did we love La Boum, Dirty Dancing & Co! Thanks to Netflix, there are tons of supplies that are instantly rejuvenating.

Forever 17 – we don’t want to be at all, but sometimes, sometimes it’s great to feel that way again for a moment. Alternatively, it helps to be happy that we are no longer 17, but 40. In any case, the right teenage boy at the right time can really sweeten the evening. Especially if there is another nice dream boy in it. Here are our top five:
1. Sierra Burgess is a loser
Sierra Burgess is very smart and funny, but she doesn’t look like you would imagine a cheerleader to be enthusiastic about. Nevertheless, it happens that she texts the school crush. Unfortunately, he thinks these come from the school’s flagship cheerleader … But that’s not the only surprise in this RomCom, which is really a bit smarter than this genre suggests. Shannon Purser as the overweight Sierra Burgess is really great. And Noah Centineo as Jamie is exactly the guy we would have found really cute when we were 16. Well, actually we still find it today …
2. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
Didn’t we all secretly write love letters when we were teenagers? The same goes for 16 years old Lara Jean, only with the small difference that her sister sends the boys the letters that were supposed to be kept secret. SURPRISE: Again, Noah Centineo gives the high school crush. However, that doesn’t matter, because you really can’t see the 22-year-old enough!
3. The Kissing Booth
Elle and Lee are best friends – and, no, they’re not secretly in love with each other, they’re actually just buddies. However, with its own rules, one of them is that Elle is not allowed to do anything with Lee’s superhot big brother Noah. But who do you think Elle has a crush on? Even. Jacob Elordi is actually irresistible even with the crappy Justin Bieber memorial hairstyle. We definitely understand Elle very well.
4. DUFF – If you don’t have one, you are one!
Bianca is a horror film fan, small and boyish and is therefore perfect as a DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend, in German “Designated Ugly Fat Friend”). Because she wants to get rid of her role as an ugly duckling and conquer her crush Toby, she decides to change her life immediately. For this she gets help from her sandpit friend Wesley. He’s the hottest guy in school, of course. Fun fact: Wesley aka Robbie Amell was born in real life in 1988 – so by no means too young to become our new crush …
5. Sex education
Yeah, we know it’s not a movie, but it makes it all the better because after one episode we can always get more of this super series. What is it about? Otis is the son of the well-known sex therapist Jean Milburn, but has no experience at all herself. When he can help a classmate with a sex problem, his classmate Maeve Wiley comes up with the idea of starting a sex therapy service for her classmates for money. All of the characters (especially Otis’ best gay friend) are so charming and funny that you can’t stop looking. Bonus: The X-Files star Gillian Anderson is the hippie mother in a great way.
