What are some PG-13 movies that don't suck?

My step-sister comes to visit every other weekend. She pretty much spends the whole weekend watching cancerous YouTube videos unless someone does something with her, so I try to spend time with her. I struggle with finding good movies to watch that are 13 year old appropriate.

If at all possible, I'd like to watch something that has some good lessons in it. That show The Fosters is pretty good for encouraging discussion, but pretty much anything else from ABC Family is lame. I'm getting sick of Disney movies and other teeny/kiddie stuff (NO Mean Girls, Harry Potter, Twilight, Pitch Perfect, or anything similar!).

So what can I watch with a 13 year old that's not going to make me want to shoot myself?


Sorry, I should have specified movies already out on DVD only. Theaters are expensive, yo.

      Maybe, but it's an 80s movie so she might refuse to watch it.
