A year ago, I made the bold claim that the teen comedy as a genre was on the decline. However, my mind has since changed. Following in the tradition of films like Heathers, Jawbreaker, and Mean Girls, Netflix's latest release "Do Revenge" has since revived a declining genre and reminded audience how the genre can be again. So get in loser, because we're revisiting how the teen comedy came to be, where it went wrong, and where it's heading.
