FLIST!

1. Working on a story, have a question concerning the following line:

Sarah rolls her eyes, debates pointing out that rated-R movies sometimes come very close to porn, and then thinks about her chances for renting (insert film here) in the near future.

Keeping in mind that the story is set in early 2008 (January or February, I think), what R-rated movie might a typical 13-year-old girl be interested in seeing that she hasn't already seen? After scanning Wikipedia, the only thing I could come up with was "Knocked Up," but...does that work? Or is there a much better suggestion I'm not thinking of? Now that I think about it, I suppose given her age that opens up a whole world of older movies she probably hasn't seen yet, but...I am not well versed in cinema! Also, I avoid movies rated R like the plague! (which I think makes me an anomaly) So you can see where I'm having difficulties.

(oh, also, this particular girl has just proclaimed disinterest in the Austen remakes on PBS because "Jane Austen's kind of boring," so I'd imagine period pieces wouldn't be her thing either.)

2. Speaking of 12-to-13-year-old girls, er, for those of you who went to school dances in middle school, especially with groups of friends...what did you do?  What made them fun?  I always flatly refused to attend such tomfoolery, so I have no experience at all.  Well, I did go to one in 7th grade because my mom made me, but I spent the whole time with my arms crossed in a corner, hating the loud music and glaring at people running around with no inhibition whatsoever, so...I need a fresher and more positive perspective.  
(This question is story-related, too...same character, different fic.)

3. What's a nice rural area of Wisconsin?  Sarah's grandparents live out in the country with horses, and I'm trying to figure out a middle school I can have her attend there, so I need some sort of city name (or, well, not city, but you know what I mean).  You'd think I'd be perfectly qualified to figure this out on my own, but no.  I want help if possible.

1. Oh! I didn't even think of the American Pie series. That's a good one, I might go with it. Although 40-Year-Old Virgin is pretty tempting too. Thanks!

2. Nah, don't feel sorry for me...I went in expressly intending to hate it, and I stand proudly by my decision (tomfoolery, I say!). I tend to be very rigid and uptight when it comes to social situations, and Sternly Disapprove of people who aren't embarrassed by embarrassing things (which is basically what all non-choreographed dancing is, to my eyes). What can I say, I have an Embarrassment Complex. Also a Judging Complex, but that's a whole new ball game.

Thanks very much for your insights, though! The snowball dance sounds interesting, from a purely observational standpoint.
