The quintessential teen movie, "American Pie" has more than enough leers and puns to fill your weekend, along with a breakthrough part from Alyson "Band Camp" Hannigan.
George Lucas' "American Graffiti" has high-school friends (including Harrison Ford) pondering their future on the last weekend of summer 1962.
A soap about a small-town Texas football team, "Friday Night Lights" will set the tone for your fall nights.
"Porky's" helped usher in the teen sex comedy craze, with its tale of boys going wild at a Florida nightclub.

Relieve your summer camp days with the cult hit, “Wet Hot American Summer,” starring a before-they-were-famous cast that includes Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and Ken Marino.

Yes, we know Richard Linklater’s 1993 coming-of-age comedy “Dazed and Confused” takes place at the beginning of summer, but we bet you’ll still be saying “alright, alright, alright” if you watched it now.
“Everybody Wants Some!!,” Linklater’s “spiritual sequel” to “Dazed and Confused,” moves from high school to the college. This one feels right for this weekend, as it’s set the weekend prior to the first day of classes (which in some states, is actually Labor Day Weekend!)
How could you have a back to school movie list without Adam Sandler’s overgrown man-child “Billy Madison,” who actually… goes back to school? We didn’t think so either.
If you’re feeling the back-to-school blues, the Greendale gang from “Community” should make you happy that at least your school is better than this fictional Colorado community college. Besides, aren’t we all “Human Beings?”
Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake star in “Bad Teacher,” the raunchy 2011 comedy about a high school teacher who probably hates school more than her students.
