Not all teens wanna go to Harvard!
We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the most unrealistic things teens do in coming-of-age movies. Here are the frustrating results.
Every teen girl automatically becomes the most beautiful person at school once she takes her glasses off and plucks her eyebrows.
And every teen’s parent is either suuuuper clueless or ridiculously strict. There’s no in-between.
They always sneak out of the house in the middle of the night to do something rebellious.
High school students only dream of going to Ivy League schools, like Harvard.
Teens are always part of a super specific clique, and rarely befriend anyone outside of it.
They skip classes, or entire school days, without any ounce of punishment.
And they’re somehow always caught up in intensely romantic love triangles.
Teens in movies have allllll of this free time, and you never see them do homework or study.
For some reason, every young girl is BFFs with her teacher.
And every single teenager is ridiculously hot. Like, out-of-this-world hot.
Mainly because high schoolers in coming-of-age movies are played by grown-ass adults.
Students rock suuuuuper trendy and extravagant outfits to school on a daily basis.
They have extremely fulfilling and active sex lives.
And pretty much every dude’s main priority is to get laid before going off to college.
Teens always host or go to these ridiculously fun and wild house parties.
And if it’s a pool party, they have this ~super deep~ moment while swimming underwater.
Finally, every teen’s horrible problem is miraculously resolved once they’re in a committed and loving relationship.
