Every teenage boy has dreamed of the girl next door, but what happens when the girl next door is an ex porn star? This is the question this 2004 comedy poses and answers. Emile Hirsch stars as straight A student Matthew Kidman opposite Elisha Cuthbert as Danielle. The premise explores all the awkward moments arising from having a porn star girlfriend, with plenty of crude humour and sex jokes. The film also explores the drama side to a decent level as well however, as the two leads' relationship helps them learn about themselves.
9. Road trip
I'm going to have to put the blame on Revenge of the Nerds for the stereotypical movie Nerd image. Lewis and Gilbert have got the glasses, the slicked-back hair, buttoned-up shirts and worst of all, the dreaded pocket protectors. When Lewis and Gilbert get kicked out of their new accommodation by the jocks on campus they have to start their own fraternity to get their revenge.
5. Risky Business
This is the movie that put Tom Cruise on the road to stardom, and still has one of his most famous cinematic moments, of course I am referring to his home alone underwear dancing antics. Admit it, we've all done it in one form or another, no? just me?... Regardless, Risky Business is an 80's classics. A slightly older version of Home Alone in a lot of ways. While Joel Gooden's parents are away he gets mixed up with hookers, parties, drugs, sex and plenty of rock 'n' roll.
4. Fast Times at Ridgemont High
As much a stoner film as a teen comedy, Fast Times at Ridgemont High painted the picture of an American High schools that has stuck. All the social clicks, the looks and the style are there. Starring a very young Sean Penn as Jeff Spicoli, Fast times at Ridgemont high presents the paradigm of the perpetually stoned surfer dude. Hilarious throughout, Fast Times is a great early example of the teenage raunchy comedy genre.

1. American Pie
American Pie and at least some of its sequels are perhaps the definitive teen raunchy comedies. Filled with a wildly memorable slew of characters, lines and moments, American Pie gets it right. Everything you would expect and want from a teen raunchy comedy. The film launched a whole new era and plethora of teen comedies, but none ever came close to recapturing the dirty magic, apart from maybe the second outing of Stifler and the gang in American Pie 2.
