Oldies: Clue (Amazon)
Based on the board game, this comedic mystery begins at a dinner party hosted by Mr. Boddy, where he admits to blackmailing his visitors. The dinner party soon takes a turn for the worst when Mr. Boddy is murdered and all the guests turn into suspects. You think you’ll predict the ending, but I promise you, you wont.
Comedy: The Duff (Amazon)
Okay, you know what, I’ll say it. I was the Duff in my friend group for most, if not all, of grade school. If you don’t get it, just watch it. Mae Whitman completely nails her portrayal of an awkward high school teen just trying to fit in, or at least get on the same level while everyone else seems to effortlessly elevate together as a collective. She ends up staying true to herself, which is always the best move, and guess what (spoiler alert), still gets the guy!
Drama: Skate Kitchen (Hulu)
Basically, I’m living vicariously through these teens. Who wouldn’t love an all girl friend group to go skate-boarding and party with all around NYC? When Camille’s mom forbids her from skating after an accident, she leaves home. Her group bands together to get through the isolation of pursuing something unconventional, family issues, and boy drama. It’s an inspiring and uplifting story, especially if you’re in a lonely place. Also, a fun cameo with Jaden Smith!
