Rather than condemn these films as 'guilty pleasures' this book sets out to understand how they are designed to create experiences that feel as though they express desires, memories, or fantasies that girls supposedly share in common.

At the same time, the cultural aspect of media education here means a
recognition of the grounded aesthetic of popular culture, and specifically, the
interest for teenage girls of slasher movies ... And finally, pleasure here means
some kind of accommodation, oscillation, between the uncomfortable
remoteness of an old, tedious-looking text and the gradual recognition that it is
related to the visceral pleasures of more recent slasher films and, indeed, can be
subjected to an aesthetic ...

While these films have either teenage girls or adult women as their subjects, Little
Miss Sunshine (2006) is a film about a children's beauty contest. ... Since Mulvey
(1975, 1989), the dependence of realist cinema on the female form for visual

providing an alternative way of representing women as subjects in the very
medium that ...

Despite its sparse aesthetic, I Walk the Line is saturated in sex, from the deputy's
open surveying of a porn magazine at the station to the repeated (and rejected)
bedroom opportunities Tawes's wife creates, to the visiting federal officer's
suggestion that what the town needs is a hotel “with hot sheets.” And then there is
Alma McCain (Tuesday Weld), the teenage girl/woman from a bootlegger's family
who lures the married sheriff into her bed, and whose wrong-side-of-the-tracks
activities ...

REVIEW: Narrator Meredith Baxter-Birney reveals how much money the tobacco
industry spends a year on advertising cigarettes. Much of their advertising is
aimed at teens and young women, the models are beautiful, exciting and
sophisticated and have great appeal to that audience. When teen-agers in the
film were asked why they smoke, they replied that smoking enhances their image
, made them feel grown-up, sexy, popular, glamorous and on top of things, and

The audio track in this sequence sets up the entire film: Baby is going to learn to
mind being called Baby, she is going to find a guy as great as her dad (maybe
greater), and liberal politics will have something to do with her accession to
adulthood. (One way to read Dirty Dancing would be as a female oedipal drama,

throughout the film, define two constellations of identity: middle-aged, middle-
class, repressed, ...

A group of girls who completed the same project last year, and whose work I
have described elsewhere (Burn, 1999a), became increasingly aware of how
Psycho was important for their parents' generation; and how it is importantly both
different from, and related to, the slasher movies which have succeeded it.
CULTURAL PLEASURE VERSUS CULTURAL VALUE? The study of Psycho in
the classroom does not, then, need to be dominated either by the question of
textual value ...
