The Fine Bros may be best known for their short-form React series on YouTube (and soon to be on television), but the two fraternal partners are now taking their creative talents to the big screen. Benny and Rafi Fine (who boast over 13.8 million subscribers across three YouTube channels) will write, produce, and direct a currently-unnamed film in partnership with Big Block Entertainment Group. The upcoming movie is set to be a teen comedy filled with a premise of high school growing pains and angst. Here's the logline from the release: Comedic feature film that takes an over the top look at the clique filled world of high school and how the people you grew up with, and even used to be friends with, often become the same people who torment you by the time you graduate....and now it's time for the outcasts to change all of that.

Back-to-school: that well-worn term that means fresh school supplies, new classes, old friends and falling leaves. Students stock their lockers again in August and September after a refreshing summer (remember summer break? Do you?). But for those who have graduated high school... well, high school was a trial by fire. If you "Can't Hardly Wait" to head to "Animal House," you've gotta take a load of "Brick." You can't go "Old School" until you've learned "The Perks of Being a Wall Flower." You haven't achieved "Higher Learning" without having started out "Clueless." To get to "22 Jump Street," you have to have attended "21 Jump Street," you know? HitFix staffers traveled back in time to explain how flicks like "Mean Girls," "Easy A," "Carrie," "Three O'Clock High," "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "The Breakfast Club," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "The Faculty" are secretly the most traumatizing and mortifying films, because of those high school life lessons. »

Movie Based upon James Franco's Short Stories Captures the High School Parties of Your Dreams, Nightmares Would there be American Pie without the possibilities promised by Sixteen Candles? by matt patches High school party movies were, and continue to be, baffling to me. Growing up in a suburb of Philadelphia, running with a studious crowd that still possessed the powers of social behavior, I never encountered Project X-level mayhem — “the party to end all parties.” Or, adjusted to the late '90s, I never found myself united with every classmate sect at a poolside bacchanal a la Can't Hardly Wait. I didn't even stumble into a Dazed and Confused-esque summer party, where people just stand around in the woods drinking beer and smoking weed. That last option sounds plausible, but likely took place in the basement of whoever's parents were out of town. So while pop [...] »

Can't Hardly Wait captures '90s teen movies at their finest, with all the signature cliques and wild party moments that came to define the decade's most popular teen films. The 1998 flick follows t-shirt-wearing Preston Meyers (Ethan Embry) as he tries to capture the attention of newly single Amanda Beckett (Jennifer Love Hewitt), the most popular girl in school, during one seriously over-the-top house party. There are beer-drinking geeks, rekindled romances, and awkward pairs trapped in the bathroom - not to mention an angel stripper, a yearbook-obsessed senior, and an arrogant jock who's scared to leave the high school bubble. So, which one are you? Take this quiz to find out! »

Remember when Netflix got rid of over 80 titles? That was a bummer, especially when you consider the likes of Can't Hardly Wait, Braveheart and Titanic were amongst the movies that got kicked to the curb. But good news! Netflix has added 26 new films to its streaming library for 2014. Sure, 26 is a lot less than 89 (we can do math!), but the quality of the titles that are now on Netflix are much more important than the quantity. Look, Nathan Lane's Mousehunt is on the list! Ok, bad example. But seriously, check out the good movies that you can now watch while remaining anti-social at the same time: 1. West Side Story: When you're a jet, you're a jet all the way. Nobody snaps before a big fight anymore, »
