List of the best teen romance movies. Throughout film history, one of the most beloved, popular, and relatable movie genres has been the teen romance. Moviegoers of all ages, from heartbroken teenagers to nostalgic seniors have enjoyed sitting in a dark theater to watch the newest film depicting two young lovers. These movies don’t just cover teenagers dealing with their first loves. There are also themes of coming of age, angst, parental issues, and feelings of alienation, which is why so many people can relate to these movies. The films on this list range from 1960s classics to current takes on the tropes.

 

The teen romance movies on this list sometimes also fit into other genres. Musicals like Grease and West Side Story have become among the most popular movies of all time not just because of the fantastic music, but also because of the reoccurring themes that pop up. Many teen romances are often based on classic stories, like Clueless is based on Jane Austen’s Emma, and Easy A is based on The Scarlett Letter.

 

What are the best teenage romance movies of all time? This list covers the top teen romance movies from classics like Dirty Dancing to newer depictions like the zombie romance, Warm Bodies.
