The Teenage Textbook Movie is a film adaptation of Adrian Tan's bestselling 1988 novel The Teenage Textbook. It is a lighthearted look at the lives of four students in Singapore as they start junior college.
The film was well-received critically and topped the Singapore box office for four weeks, beating Hollywood offerings. Its stars, who were unknowns, eventually became household names on television. Its soundtrack was all-Singaporean, a first for English-language Singapore films.
When Mui Ee (Melody Chen) attends fictitious Paya Lebar Junior College with her best friend Sissy Song (Lim Hwee Sze), she encounters a new life form: boys. There are many, but only one will win her heart.
