Your Teenage Self's Favorite Movie Is Coming To Netflix In August
It's crazy to think that summer is just about halfway over, and soon we will be back to wearing sweaters and sipping pumpkin spice lattes. And, a movie is coming to Netflix in August that might just make you want to grab your old Jansport and head back to high school. That's right — A Cinderella Story will hit Netflix in August. The streaming service gave Bustle a sneak peek at the full list of movies and shows to come next month, and this title is a seriously special addition. (The complete list is now available here.)
If you're anything like me, you watched this movie just about a thousand times growing up, sneaking it in after school when you were really supposed to be doing your homework. It was pretty hard to resist Chad Michael Murray's dreamy looks. And I definitely secretly wished that I could be Hillary Duff in that movie. The girl gets the hottest guy in school, and she gets into Princeton. If that's not living the dream, then I don't know what is.
There's no such thing as watching A Cinderella Story too many times. Fortunately, the early 2000s classic will soon be available for unlimited viewing at your very fingertips on Netflix. So you can relive that iconic kiss in the rain over, and over, and over... Here are some of the best moments from the movie that pretty much defined your teenage years — and that you can look forward to seeing again in just a couple of weeks.
That Amazing Ball
Every time I watched this movie, I wondered why my prom was never this awesome. The gazebo, the costumes, Austin Ames dressed as a prince: Everything about this moment was totally swoon-worthy.
When Sam Stands Up For Herself
Even though "Nomad" was dreamy, at school Austin could be kind of a jerk with terrible friends. Sam wasn't afraid to call him out on his BS, and hit viewers with that iconic line: "Waiting for you is like waiting for rain in this drought — useless and disappointing." Epic.
Every Time Fiona Spoke
Sure, she was the evil stepmother, but she was also undeniably hilarious. Whenever her face appeared on screen you knew something ridiculous was about to go down.
Old School Online Dating
Before the age of Tinder, there was good ole AIM. Nothing will take you back to your teenage years faster than watching these two hotties flirt via a desktop computer.
That Iconic Rain Kiss
This scene was especially dramatic considering the massive drought happening during the rest of the movie.
So, next month gather up your high school friends (or don't) kick back, and relive the glory days — back before we were scared of being catfished on Tinder or OK Cupid or Bumble by someone considerably less attractive than Chad Michael Murray.
