List RulesVote up the best movies for thirteen year old boys to watch. No R-Rated movies please.

It’s not easy to keep a teenage boy’s attention for two hours. However, this list of movies for 13 year old boys may just do the trick. Save the romance movies for the girls, the best movies for teen boys are filled with fantasy, adventure, comedy, and superheroes.

Finally, these young men can watch a PG-13 movie. It’s a tough age, so what are the appropriate movies for thirteen year old boys? Some of the best superhero movies are now PG-13. Those popcorn flicks add more battle scars and intricate plot detail than their PG counterparts.

But superhero movies are not the only top films for 13 year old boys. Classic comedies like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off remains a relevant selection for any generation, and the coming of age story The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a relatable narrative for any teen.

Make your voice heard. Vote up the best films for thirteen year old boys.
