In Generation Multiplex, Timothy Shary examines American youth films of the 1980s and 1990s and discovers a resonant genre. This significant and insightful study demonstrates that there is more going on in the youth films of the past two decades than the simple good kid/bad kid depictions that dominated teen films before 1980.

When teenagers began hanging out at the mall in the early 1980s, the movies followed. Multiplex theaters offered teens a wide array of perspectives on the coming-of-age experience, as well as an escape into the alternative worlds of science fiction and horror. Youth films remained a popular and profitable genre through the 1990s, offering teens a place to reflect on their evolving identities from adolescence to adulthood while simultaneously shaping and maintaining those identities.

Drawing examples from hundreds of popular and lesser-known youth-themed films, Timothy Shary here offers a comprehensive examination of the representation of teenagers in American cinema in the 1980s and 1990s. He focuses on five subgenres—school, delinquency, horror, science, and romance/sexuality—to explore how they represent teens and their concerns, how these representations change over time, and how youth movies both mirror and shape societal expectations and fears about teen identities and roles. He concludes that while some teen films continue to exploit various notions of youth sexuality and violence, most teen films of the past generation have shown an increasing diversity of adolescent experiences and have been sympathetic to the particular challenges that teens face.

Hollywood has been making films about teenagers since the 1930s, and films aimed at teenagers since the mid-1950s. The genre flourished until the mid-sixties, languished during the late sixties and seventies, and then flared back to life in the early 1980s in the hands of directors like Cameron Crowe (Fast Times at Ridgemont High), Martha Coolidge (Valley Girl,Real Genius) and especially John Hughes (The Breakfast Club,Ferris Bueller's Day Off). Published in 2004, Timothy Shary's Generation Multiplex is a catalog and analysis of those late-twentieth-century Hollywood teen films, overlaid with an interpretation of what, collectively, they said about the lives, loves hopes, and fears of American teenagers.

Shary, adapting and expanding his PhD thesis, does his job thoroughly and well. This is likely the definitive book on its subject, and - as befits such a book - it's exhaustively comprehensive, lucidly organized, and clearly written. Anyone seriously interested in the Hollywood teen film, or in Hollywood films of the eighties and nineties, ought to read (and will, very likely, want to own) the book.

All that said, it's not a lot of fun to read. Shary's grouping of teen films by type, rather than year, facilitates his analysis of shared themes, but kills any sense of narrative momentum and makes it hard for him to connect the films to broader social and cultural trends. His "voice" is so measured, and his analyses so relentlessly sober, that it's easy to forget how frequently and enthusiastically the genre he's analyzing embraced anarchy, surrealism, and low comedy. First books by academic authors (mine included) can be like that. When your book starts as a PhD thesis, it's hard - no matter how much you edit - to get the chill of seriousness out of its bones.

If you're a reader of a certain age and (just) want a breezy, nostalgic tour of the movies of your youth . . . this isn't your book (though Jonathan Bernstein's Pretty In Pink: The Golden Age of Teenage Movies might be). If, however, you want a serious and detailed study of the genre -- want to know what Hollywood was telling the world about you and your friends -- it definitely is.

Because of my background interest in adolescent culture, I was very interested to read Dr. Timothy Shary's book about the image of youth in american film. I was delighted to find Shary's book not only to be well-written, but filled with insight and a pervasive gentle humor. The author successfully shows how film images of teenagers reflect pervasive social and political trends and often better depict adult fears of teenage behaviors rather than a realistic sense of actual teen culture. I found his dividing up the hundreds of films he describes into subgenres (like movies about school culture, slasher films, movies about love and sex) to be extremely helpful in placing the films in their larger context as well as to see how some concepts evolve while other archetypes appear to be repeated again and again.
As a librarian and teen educator, I felt that this work had a lot of value. With the emphasis on media literacy and critical thinking skills in education today, teachers and librarians need to be thinking about appealing ways of presenting information that will engage students into critically examining their culture. Using popular films that star teen characters and/or teen culture would be a good way to accomplish this goal, and Dr. Shary's book would be an excellent and accessible text to use as both a model and as background knowledge in this type of class. Because of the prevalence of cable television in the lives of teens, even the older movies from the 80s are likely to be relatively familiar and useful for discussions about historical trends and changes.
Dr. Shary should be complemented on this excellent, academic work on the image of youth in contemporary film. All college and high school libraries would be recommended to have a copy on hand and use it as a guide for collecting some key films of high quality for their visual collections.
