Lunchtime Poll

My friend Kristofer Robin has been sending me lunchtime polls by e-mail these past couple of weeks and I've found myself looking forward to them. So I thought I'd steal it from him, as he stole it from Heathers. It's so 1989.

Answer in the comments -No lurking!
"Which movie character (from any movie) would you have most liked to hang out with in High School?"

Anthony Rapp in Dazed and Confused.

ryan said...

Ricky Fitts (American Beauty). No contest.

My second choice would probably be Dedee Truitt (The Opposite of Sex). Those would be killer times!

Chris said...

Marty McFly, I think.

Joe R. said...

(Cheating) Janis Ian and Damien from Mean Girls.

shawnp said...

Barney Springboro from Zapped!

Pedro said...

I feel old. I'll say Tom Cruise in Taps, because I thought he was hot, even though he was beginning to show his "true colors".

Also, Molly Ringwald in Sixteen Candles (or the chinese exchange student from that same movie).

Pedro said...

And don't get me wrong, nowadays I don't like Tom Cruise.

JA said...

Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) from Sixteen Candles all the way.

And I do mean all the way.

Anonymous said...

Romy & Michelle.

Rob

newland said...

Angela (Claire Danes) and her friends in "My so-called life" (I know that was TV, but who cares). I would swoon every time Jordan Catalano walked by.

c.p. iñor said...

Janis Ian (Mean Girls)

NATHANIEL R said...

i'm gonna say either Sandy or Frenchie... or better yet. All of the Pink Ladies from Grease

DL said...

Alyson Hannigan in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Or maybe Thora Birch in American Beauty.

Cher from Clueless. Totally.

Middle-P said...

i'd like to sit in detention with the breakfast club

Ali said...

The quartet from Reality Bites.

vince said...

Betty Finn. Oh, wait, I was Betty Finn. Then, I guess it would been the red head girl from Lucas.

Anonymous said...

Regina George. She's evil, but fabulous.

douglas said...

thora birch & scarlett johansson in the ghost world

adam k. said...

I couldn't think of anyone, but then I read everyone else's. So maybe Rizzo?

Or wait, better: Jamie Lee Curtis as Tess Coleman as Anna Coleman, from Freaky Friday. bomb.

Or if "hanging out" implies more than mere platonic friendship, then also Chad Michael Murray as Jake in Freaky Friday.

And if TV counts, then the cast of "My So-Called Life" even though I've never seen it. I've heard great things.

NATHANIEL R said...

WHAT? rent it right now. It rules

adam k. said...

Yo, it's kind of out of print. I'm not sure it's available on Netflix. It's definitely not available to buy. But I will try.

vince said...

if, I'm 16 again, then, I'd like to date that guy Rickie liked at the Halloween dance with the black-rimmed glasses and the Converse shoes. He was SO cute!

NATHANIEL R said...

par,
this is why you never should have quit. whatever will we do for listing?

Arun said...

Scarlett Johansson and Thora Birch in Ghost World

Ben (UK) said...

I'm sitting here and thinking about what friends I did hag out with and, knowing I was ususally a loner, I think, trgically, I'd end up with:

Rik Mayall in Drop Dead Fred.

Kamikaze Camel said...

"i'd like to sit in detention with the breakfast club"

agreed.

But for friends wise, I would love to hang around Keith and Watts from Some Kind of Wonderful. The three of us could have a wonderful love triangle going on (I totally love Keith, even though Eric Stoltz really hasn't been good looking ever again). Plus, they rock.

Kevin Laforest said...

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Beau said...

Ally Sheedy from The Breakfast Club. Ricky Fitts would've been tight too.

Lindsay Weir and Kim Kelly would've been absolutely fucking AMAZING.

macoco said...

Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme from Heavenly Creatures!
I would have loved to plan a murder with them!

damion said...

Eva Amurri as Cassandra in Saved!

damion said...

... or... I could "hang out" with Jesse Bradford as Cliff Pantone in Bring it On. And by "hang out"... I mean...

NATHANIEL R said...

macoco ---how positively gothic of you ;)
damion --oh, the many definitions of "hanging out"
arun --i think a lot of people actually DID hang out with Thora & Scarlett from Ghost World, right?

the boyfriend said...

Edward Scissorhands

Brian said...

Ally Sheedy from The Breakfast Club...if by "hang out with" you mean "try to nail". Otherwise, John Cusack from any number of films. Say Anything if you want to choose one.

Marcelo said...

Charlotte Flax from Mermaids

John M said...

Oh, great poll. I'd definitely have to go with (as did Rob) Romy and Michele, if only because of Michele's awesome back brace.

Trashbag Kid said...

Sam, Bill, Neil, Kim Kelly, Lindsay, etc. from Freaks and Geeks.

NATHANIEL R said...

Charlotte Flax! i'd nearly forgotten about her.

oh and seriously there are good tv shows with highschool characters: my so called life & freaks and geeks towering over many movies in this dept as well.

Trashbag Kid said...

As far as great high school dorks, I am pretty sure that no movie I've seen can compare to the boys of Freaks and Geeks. I still get terribly upset about its cancellation. One of the worst before-its-time axes ever.

I'd also hang out with Peter Parker. He sorta counts.

kristoferrobbin said...

Nathaniel! copycat!In order: Betty RIZZO from "Grease", Duckie and Andie from "Pretty in Pink",Veronica Sawyer from "Heathers", Romy & Michelle, Johnny & Ponyboy from "the Outsiders", Amber from "clueless" and Bill & Ted...ya know, just for kicks. Although The Boyfriend said Edward Scissorhands, which got me thinking...Hmmmm.

John T. said...

In a nanosecond, Rory Gilmore from the Gilmore Girls. Also, in a totally embarassing admission, I'd go with Jack & Jen on Dawson's Creek.

dark_angel said...

I'm gonna have to say Crybaby Walker from "Crybaby". I loved that movie and Johnny Depp is soo cute.
