Slight question of professional interest

As some of you know, the next movie crit book I am working on is on the broad question of teen movies - defined as movies about teenagers made primarily for a teen market, though I plan to include some films that don't really fit that pattern. I am mostly but not entirely leaving horror out, and dealing with a few tv programmes I think are interesting - which probably means, after watching a few episodes, not Dawson's Creek. I'm concentrating on US stuff, though there are one or two British films I am including.

What I am asking my friends for is personal lists of ten movies they think relevant, just so I can check I haven't left anything obvious out from my viewing schedule. To give an example, I was out today with dolores and we were in HMV and Dol started squeeing about 'Empire Records'.
