Two high school best friends, played by Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein, have been academic overachievers dedicating their whole high school life to get into ivy league colleges. On the eve of graduation, they realize that they should have studied less and partied harder and try to “booksmart” a way to cram all of their crazy adventures into one night. This unfiltered comedy film directed by Olivia Wilde captures the essence of self-exploration and breaking down stereotypes.

This movie could give you some nostalgic feelings of senior year of high school. A group of four besties, including Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale who plays Lily and Awkwafina as Rebecca, bond over relationships, senioritis, drugs, and partying during their last weeks of high school. Re-living that excitement and a teensy-bit of fear transitioning into college, we see the teenage girls try to navigate their friendship. Try to spot our new Euphoria boyfriend, Austin Abrams in the movie!

22 Jump Street

After successfully accomplishing their missions in high school in the movie 21 Jump Street, the iconic undercover officers, played by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, are now moving on to a new investigation as college students. With spring break being the prime time of drug crimes, the pair party hard to capture the bad guys. As they adapt to their college life, the buddies go through rough patches as partners. Will they be able to rekindle their bromance?

Project X

Three anonymous wannabe cool kids want to be remembered as high school legends before they graduate. They plan to host the biggest party of the year which turns into a chaotic rager. What they thought would be a small get together, with word of mouth, all the students from their high school start pulling up and even Miles Teller makes a surprise appearance. From accidentally stealing drugs to sinking their parent’s car in the pool, the party goes downhill and indeed becomes an unforgettable event that gets broadcasted in the news. Have the time of your life, but remember to party safe kids!

An oldie but still a classic. We are still McLovin this iconic film where two high school seniors, starring Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, try to make the most of their last weeks together before they head to different colleges.

With Coachella coming up, XOXO is the perfect movie to get hyped up about music festivals! It tells the story of a young rising DJ who earns a gig to perform at the biggest EDM festival XOXO. The film also reveals six strangers, including Modern Family star Sarah Hyland and singer Hayley Kiyoko, who enjoy the euphoric night of romance and chasing after dreams.
