A modern day teenage version of Shakespeare's play done in as close to original language as they could make it. Most teens that I see watching this today complain that they can't understand it. God, we are getting stupid!

Easy A (2010)


A play off of the Scarlet Letter...that is not actually even close to the real story, but I'm hoping they weren't going for that here.

Teenified Beauty and the Beast. A travesty in the making.

A teenified version of Little Red Riding Hood. Yet another abomination.

It's just so hard to justify a terrible stepmother and two greedy, stupid stepsisters in the real world nowadays. Hillary Duff tries to, and 'they don't even bother to change the title much. Sadly, I kind of enjoyed this one for the kid movie that it was.

A teenage Snow White. Seven teenage nerd dwarves. Is this bordering on blasphemy?

This is a multimedia world, nowadays, more and more teenagers are admitting to the shameful fact that they don't read. (Cringes and dies just a little bit inside.) Instead of forcing their lazy arses out of their own microcosmic bubbles, Hollywood seems to be creating more ways to pull the world into that bubble.

This story to teen movie conversion doesn't have to be a bad thing. Romeo + Juliet wasn't so terrible, but good GOD, STOP IT ALREADY!!!
