newsies as cheesy teen movie cliches
  • Jack: the classic "shallow headed" jock who secretly has deep and smart philosophies, like adult level thoughts that really don't make sense to the average 16 year old
  • Davey: that one super nerdy guy who follows the female main character around with a camera (you'd be surprised how many teen movies have this character) and wins the girl by persistent filming
  • Kath: " hi, I'm Katherine. I'm not your average teenaged girl who worries about popularity and mascara. [camera zooms in on popular girls] yeah, I'm definitely not like them. I actually have brains. [camera zooms in on superior music taste and multiple flannels]"
  • Les: the main characters younger brother who asks all of her friends out. like every single one.
  • Specs: the guy that's super nerdy who decides he needs to become a super cool jock in order to impress the girl he likes, when in reality the girl doesn't care, and she actually likes his sweater vest collection or whatever
  • Spot: literally everyone owes him a favor. he never explains why.
  • Race: the angry one
  • Romeo: the guy who sends out a mass text to every girl in school asking them to prom. they all decline. he watches supernatural and eats Cheetos instead. he was too cool for those high school girls anyways. he starts asking out college girls.
