And the lion fell in love with the lamb, "stupid lamb" as these two would say since Bella was sporting an injury that night. But that didn't stop them from being romantic and dancing to Iron & Wine's "Flightless Bird, American Mouth" to close the first movie in the franchise.

 2  Carrie

While prom may have been a place where she got bullied for the final time, Carrie White also owned it. She went with her crush, Tommy, wore a dress that looked perfect on her, and even won prom king and queen... before someone spilled pig's blood on her and she showed everyone who's boss.

 3  Mean Girls

Who could ever forget this scene from the classic teen movie where Cady Heron broke the Homecoming Queen crown to several pieces and shared them with her schoolmates? Even Patrick was shocked by the whole thing in the GIF (LOL!). God, Mr. Duvall, can you wrap this up?!

 4  Wild Child

Cute clothes? Check. Friends who have your back? Check. A+ dancing skills? Check. Poppy Moore had everything under control on her all-girls school's  special night even though her school rival was attempting to kill her vibe.

 5  High School Musical 3: Senior Year
