The 25 Best Young Adult Movie Adaptations

24. Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging (2008)

Director: Gurinder Chadha
Stars: Georgia Groome, Aaron Johnson, Karen Taylor, Alan Davies and Eleanor Tomlinson

The title sounds like a dirty British joke, and in some ways, it is. Based on two novels by Louise Rennison, Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging and It's OK, I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers, the flick hilariously captures the awkwardness of being a 14-year-old girl, from discovering her body (the thongs) to figuring out the logistics of making out (the, in British slang, snogging).
