The best coming of age comedy movies are extremely relatable. They hilariously capture the awkwardness of adolescence, making us feel like someone else understands the struggles and issues that young people deal with. Funny movies about growing up give us characters who seem like us, dealing with situations we have probably dealt within our own lives. And they do this while making us laugh ourselves silly. The greatest ones, like Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Clueless, have become certified classics.

It's time to determine the funniest coming of age comedy so be sure to vote up your top picks. If you notice any awesome bildungsroman comedies that have been left out, add them to the list so that other users can weigh in.
