BRB, falling in love with these guys all over again.
Teen movies are my all-time favorite genre. The awkwardness, the teenage angst, the romance — I eat that right up! ESPECIALLY when the love story gets it justttt right!
But some teen movies have some awful — and I do mean AWFUL — love stories. So let's take a look at which teen movie couples are #relationshipgoals, and which are totally overrated.

But Baby is underage in Dirty Dancing, and that makes the love story gross.

But Zack doesn't fall for Laney until she gets a makeover in She's All That, and that's just not cool.
