Remember when the Toros thought they were slaying the cheerleading game, but it turned out they had stolen all of their routines from the Clovers, a hip-hop cheer squad from East Compton? If you don't remember then it's time for you to revisit the teen classic Bring It On, starring Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union. After all, "This is isn't a democracy, it's a cheer-ocracy!"

The Nutty Professor (May 1)

Legendary comedian Eddie Murphy has taken a step back from the spotlight in recent years, so now is the best time to remember some of his most classic work. In 1996's The Nutty Professor remake, Murphy starred as Professor Sherman Klump, a brilliant but shy and overweight scientist, who creates a miraculous weight-loss solution to impress the woman of his dreams. However, as we all know, there is no miracle wight loss pill, and the Prof soon finds himself stuck with his obnoxious alter ego, Buddy Love. Jada Pinkett Smith also stars in this hilarious film that includes the best Dave Chappelle cameo.

Acting legends Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin star as Grace and Frankie, life-long rivals whose lives come to a screeching halt when they discover that their husbands have fallen in love with one another.  As their lives begin to crumble, the only thing these two women can rely on is one another. The brilliant show premiered May 8, 2015 and reunited Fonda and Tomlin who had previously co-starred in 9 to 5.  Watch the trailer for season one here and be sure to catch up ahead of the second season's premiere.

Sixteen Candles (May 1)

John Hughes' directorial debut starring '80s teen queen Molly Ringwald definitely still has its merits. Ringwald is perfection (as usual) as 16-year-old Sam who is forgotten by her parents and overlooked by the boys at school. (Seriously what kind of shitty parents forget your 16th birthday?!!)  Luckily, the ending scene with Sam and Jack sharing a smooch over her birthday cake is iconic. It's definitely a must-see '80s teen flick.

Bloodline: Season 2 (May 27)

Every family has their deep dark secrets lurking beneath the surface, but the Rayburns are hiding something more menacing than anyone could have ever imagined. Kyle Chandler stars in Bloodline as John Rayburn the black sheep of the family who returns home for his parents 45th anniversary and threatens to blow their perfect world to bits. Has John been able to stop everything from crumbling around him? We'll find out soon when the second season premieres at the end of May. Until then, watch the trailer for the first season here.
