A love story can always be overdone. One of the things that distinguishes ‘Flipped’ is that it has just the appropriate amount of unadulterated purity for a love story featuring sixth graders. Some films just stick with you because of those amazing small details. ‘Flipped’ takes you back to the first time you slipped for someone, and it’s a feeling you’ll never forget. Pre-reality love is probably never meant to be explained—not because it can’t be, but because it’s too otherworldly to be incorporated into ordinary life. It is a part of a rare place where it will never grow up.
Movies like “Flipped” can only “show” rather than “explain” about this immaculate emotion. It’s a sentiment that can’t be translated but can be demonstrated, and before we realize it, those clean eyes are transporting us back in time. Here is a list of movies that are comparable to Flipped and that we recommend. Some of these films, such as Flipped, are available on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu.

A Cinderella Story (2004)
This is the other Disney star, not Selena Gomez, in the modern remake of Cinderella. Yes, the basic plot is familiar—the harsh stepmother, the charming prince, the party—but the film is unique in that it combines a high school romance with a famous folk tale. The plot twists are well-placed, and the romance is on track. If you don’t get annoyed by clichéd love stories, this is the film for you.
A Little Romance (1979)
The romance in ‘A Little Romance’ is anything but small. Do you want to know why? Laura King and Daniel Michon, both 13, meet on a movie shoot and quickly become inseparable. Laura and Julius escape to Venice with Julius after Laura’s mother bans her from being with Daniel. They kiss under the Bridge of Sighs. Legend has it that a kiss under the bridge forever binds a couple. Is it a tad excessive? It features a young Diane Lane and Allan Burns’ Oscar-nominated script.
Booky’s Crush (2009)
‘Booky’s Crush’ is about what tickles you when you’re eleven—boys aren’t as ‘yucky’ as they once were, and a select handful can be really attractive, but Booky’s crush is Georgie Dunlop. She tutors him in the hopes that he will invite her to the dance. Her mother is there to coach her through this terrible crush. As her family struggles to make ends meet during the Great Depression, her small daydream adds color to her existence.
Eighth Grade (2018)
Kayla Day is a bashful student who struggles to make friends at school. She reflects on her life in the final days of middle school and learns that little has changed. She’s had a long-time infatuation on a boy but hasn’t been able to speak to him. She has no solid friendships, when others are forming BFF bands for each other. She has a YouTube channel dedicated to self-motivation, although it has very few views. She receives an invitation to a party from a classmate one day, and from there, a chain of events unfolds that alters her perception of herself.
Free Willy 2 (1995)
I watched this film since the prequel brought back memories from my youth. If you ask me what I remember about the story, I might just be able to say, “there was something about saving Willy (the orca),” but what I do remember is Jesse and Nadine’s brief but wonderful relationship. The romance isn’t forced or overdone, but the playfulness, innocence, and longing are perfectly represented. My favorite scene in the movie is the kiss. Nothing about them would you want to change.
Juno is a good choice if you’re seeking for a more mature romance. Juno and Bleeker go through the same thing that many American teenagers do: unprotected sex that leads to pregnancy. Juno is witty, quirky, and opinionated, whereas Bleeker is the polar opposite. ‘Juno,’ which asks good questions about family, love, and puberty, is far too serious for a clichéd teen romantic comedy. It is undeniably a film that will stay with you for the rest of your life because to its cast, humor, and, of course, Juno.
Karate Kid 2 (1986)
Yes, we’ve figured it out! It’s not about the romance in Karate Kid. It’s about Mr. Miyagi and his protégé, Daniel LaRusso, and how they use karate to defeat their foes. But there’s something about the sequel that sticks with you. Daniel is attracted to Kumiko, and their chemistry is magical. It almost feels like a fantasy—a pleasant one—because of the innocence and desire. Do you believe there will be another Daniel-Kumiko pairing?
Little Manhattan (2005)
The story of Gabe and Rosemary is told in ‘Little Manhattan.’ When the sixth graders meet at karate class, they find love in each other. When Gabe’s parents, Adam and Leslie, decide to quit their troubled marriage and file for divorce, the adult world shatters their ideal. They learn about love and how hard everything about it is. ‘Little Manhattan’ is about the first time when everyone makes promises and no one knows how to keep them. If you want to put a grin on your face, watch this movie.
Measure of a Man (2018)
Bullying is one of the issues that some students face during their school years. Children are bullied because of their appearance, whether they are big or thin, what color they are, their sexuality, or whether they are too smart or not smart enough. Bullies, on the other hand, don’t really need an excuse to torment people. They look for someone who is vulnerable and prey on them. Bobby Marks has been bullied for such a long period that it is now second nature to him. He does, however, take a summer job where he learns to stand up for himself.
Moonrise Kingdom (2012)
This one is for the daredevils and those who don’t think twice about taking risks. In the year 1965, two twelve-year-olds named Sam and Suzy fall in love. They became buddies after meeting at a church performance of Noye Fludde. They eventually decide to flee, set up camp, and live happily ever after. Isn’t it short and sweet? Please bear with me. When a terrible storm approaches the island of New Penzance, Captain Sharp, Scout Master Ward, and Mr Bishop are forced to seek for the lovebirds before the disaster strikes. There are plenty of other reasons to see this Wes Anderson film, which has received countless accolades and nominations.
My Girl (1991)
Vada Sultenfuss is a character in the film Vada Sultenfuss. Her mother died the day she was born, and she is eleven years old and hypochondriac. Her father works at a funeral home, which adds to her problems. Thomas J Sennett is a character in the film Thomas J Sennett. He is Vada’s best friend and is eleven years old. He is allergic to everything and is Vada’s best friend. They solve the puzzles of life and adolescence together and find peace in one another. The ending may necessitate the use of a tissue.
Peter Pan (2003)
In this retelling of the popular children’s story, Wendy from the Darling family is invited to Neverland by Peter Pan, along with her brothers. It’s completely otherworldly and strange. Wendy dreams of Pan, who has no idea what kissing means. She is fed up with Pan after realizing that he refuses to grow up and will never be the person she wants him to be. We can all connect to Wendy at some point in our life, can’t we?
When you realize you have a crush on an animated character, it’s an absurd realization. Eugene Fitzherbert aka Flynn Rider and Rapunzel weave a spell in the world of movies, and it’s not our fault. The two’s chemistry is regarded as one of the best-written love duos of all time. Both have their own adventures and repercussions, but it’s interesting to see how well they compliment one other. We wish it were true because of the humor, music, and spectacular graphics.
The Kissing Booth (2018)
Since the day they were born, which happens to be the same day, Elle Evans and Lee Flynn have been best friends. They know each other inside and out, and their friendship has led them to establish some ground rules for one other throughout the years. Staying away from each other’s siblings is one of those rules. However, there is a significant issue with this. Elle has a huge crush on Lee’s older brother, Noah, who plays the perfect bad guy. Elle attempts to stay away from Noah in order to maintain her commitment to Lee, but it’s becoming increasingly difficult. Then Noah kisses her in the kissing booth at the spring carnival. So, what’s next?
The Man in the Moon (1991)
It’s difficult to recover from this movie. In this tragedy, two siblings fall in love with the same local boy, played by a young Reese Witherspoon. The film has a gentle tone to it and sings in its silence. It’s about adolescence and the inevitable problems that come with it. It causes a schism between the sisters, but a horrible accident pulls them together again. It’s difficult not to cry for this one.
