She's Too Young
Obviously. You have to love a cautionary tale of the good girl who goes bad and contracts a slew of STDs. It's basically Coach Carr's "don't have sex — you will get pregnant and die" speech from Mean Girls stretched out for an hour and a half. And who wouldn't want that?

When I was in high school, my mom's and my idea of fun was watching Lifetime movies together, and one of our favorites was She's Too Young. It's one of those mother-daughter movies that's probably best not to be watched with your mother or daughter. Totally awkward.

I absolutely have to second She's Too Young! I saw it in high school (sans my mom, though, thank goodness), and it sort of made me happy I was a bit of a prude teenager. It reminded me of that Degrassi episode where Emma gets an STD, and I just absolutely adore Marcia Gay Harden. Wow, I never thought I'd write those two things together, but aggressive mom for the win!
