Trashy Teen Dramas... but I LOVE them

Trashy Teen Drama: a movie that centers around teenagers/young adults or is aimed at the 13-25 audience OR a movie that, a some point in the film, includes a cheesy or cliché scene (ex. the waltz scene in HSM3 where it rains at the end, or the dance off at the end of Another Cinderella Story) OR a movie commonly referred to a a Chic Flick and feared by guys everywhere (unless there's a REALLY hot chic in it, ex. Mean Girls) OR almost all Disney Channel Original Movies/ABC Family Original Movies

These are classic TTDs that make perfect guilty pleasures.

These are RANDOM. This is NOT a countdown.
