It’s the second day of the B&S About Movies April Movie Thon and we’re getting horizontal.

April 2: Teen comedies for adults — Remember the days of frats, gratuitous nudity and horrifying revenge framed as harmless pranks? Tell us about that movie!

All April long, we’ll have thirty themes as writing prompts. If you’d like to be part of it, you can just send us an article for that day to bandsaboutmovies@gmail.com or post it on your site and share it out with the hashtag #BSAprilMovieThon.

Here are some past films that we can recommend to watch today:

Alone in the T-Shirt Zone (1986): Writer/director/t-shirt designer/sound man and probably everything else Mike B. Anderson went from creating this movie to working on The Simpsons, but man, this is one of the oddest teen comedies you will ever witness.

King Frat (1979): If Animal House was too classy for you, if you wondered if they could make a movie where a frat could murder a dean by farting in his face and stealing the body and then have a scene where numerous men and women fart and nearly shit themselves, good news. This is the movie for you.

The Last American Virgin (1982): Somehow, a simple remake of director Boaz Davidson’s Lemon Popsicle is weaponized into a movie that destroys souls. A must-watch.
