20 Highest-Grossing Teen Romance Movies
17. Paper Towns
Paper Towns may not be the most famous adaptation of a John Green novel, but that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t successful in its own right. The film follows a shy kid who gets caught up in a series of pranks being pulled by his school’s most popular student. When she goes missing the next day, he goes on a desperate quest to track her down.
The movie plays a little bit like a scavenger hunt, which can make for some tenuous and icky moments. Still, there’s something charming about this story of young people trying to feel alive, which is why it managed to make $32 million domestically.
