Special Report: McBeardo's Teen Movie Hell

Special Guest: Mike "McBeardo" McPadden

Mike "McBeardo" McPadden has done it again; trawling through the sludge of a film subgenre to find the commonalities while holding up both the gems and the most execrable examples of teen flicks in his latest book, Teen Movie Hell: A Crucible of Coming-of-Age Comedies from Animal House to Zapped!.

On this special episode of The Projection Booth, Mike talks to McBeardo about teen movies from the more goofy and subversive (Joysticks, Hamburger: The Motion Picture, Lemon Popsicle) to the mainstream (Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Breakfast Club) and so much more.
