Teen Movie Madness: The Matthew Broderick Division Semi-Finals

In the semi-finals, we've got the school-skipper, the cheerleader, the babysitter and the slut. Who will survive?

Teen Movie Madness: The Matthew Broderick Division Semi-Finals

Y'all, I thought Teen Movie Madness was supposed to be fun, but it's getting INTENSITY IN TEN CITIES around here. The wake of this competition has left hearts broken, friendships ruined and lives DESTROYED.*

So, obvs, we need to keep the carnage coming with the Matthew Broderick Semi-Finals! Here's the interactive bracket for the folks gambling playing at home.

*This might only apply to people who own stock in SAY ANYTHING blu-rays.

This vote hurts harder than a dog biting Ed Rooney's leg. On one hand, we have Ferris, who is literally the coolest kid to walk the hallways of high school. On the other hand, we have the Mighty Toros, who overcame a routine involving a swinging dead hand move to win second place at nationals. Let's do a quick comparison of their performances:

So, judges, will y'all save Ferris, or T-t-t-t-orrance?

This vote is actually easy for me, but only because I'm in my mid-30s. I suspect that those of you in your mid-20s will find it easy too, but we might be on opposite sides of the fence. Can you hear my voice echoing in this HUGE GENERATIONAL GAP?!! Look, I heart Emma Stone super hard, but Elisabeth Shue kicks SO MUCH ASS as a babysitter. Plus Joe Gipp the car thief (Calvin Levels, what happened to you?!) is WAY hotter than Woodchuck Todd (sorry, Penn).

Since I'm in the mood for video comparisons, here's another one! Which of our heroines has the strongest musical interpretation skills?

No matter which movie you prefer, make sure you exercise your democratic freedom and vote before the polls close this Saturday at midnight!

Now excuse me, I need to swing by the DMV and pick up my "SO COOL" license plate.
