Suffering from the occasional bout of writer’s block, I have compiled a top ten list of my favorite preppy movies. I am sure I have forgotten a few.

  1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) – Audrey Hepburn + Tiffany’s, can you ask for anything more
  2. Wedding Crashers (2005) – crab cakes and football
  3. The Philadelphia Story (1941) – Katharine Hepburn in classic prep style
  4. National Lampoon’s Animal House (1978) – Otter, Bluto, and Boon vs. Greg Marmalard, Babs, and Mandy Pepperidge
  5. Pretty in Pink (1986) – Blane and Steff infamous for giving preppies a bad rep
  6. Love Story (1970) – Ryan O’Neal and Ali MacGraw
  7. Dead Poets Society (1989) – 1950s prep school cool
  8. Scent of a Woman (1992) – 1990s prep school acting like its still the 1950s
  9. Cruel Intentions (1999) – aka NYC Prep
  10. Clueless (1995) – California Prep
