Summer is here! Now that you’ve got all this free time on your hands, we here at ANDPOP are committed to filling your empty calendar with endless, binge-worthy TV shows and movies. ANDPOP’s Lazy Summer series is officially in full swing.
We’ve basically grown up with Emma Roberts. We first met the actress in Nickelodeon’s Unfabulous and she’s been gracing our screens — big and small — ever since.
For someone so young, Emma has had quite the career. She’s made her mark in the TV world with American Horror Story and most recently with Scream Queens, thanks to her portrayal of the eccentric — and always fabulous — Chanel Oberlin.
Emma’s filmography is also quite impressive — from kid flicks and teen dramas, to horror movies and indie comedies, the she’s truly done it all. Needless to say, she’s been in MORE than enough great movies for fans to marathon.
Plus, we have some time to kill before we see her on our big screens alongside Dave Franco in Nerve — which we’re pretty sure is going to be the movie of the summer.
Here are 10 Emma Roberts movies you should totally re-watch:
This flick incorporates all of your childhood favourites — the teen mermaid tail (GET IT?!) features Roberts, alongside co-stars Sara Paxton and JoJo. IT’S A PRE-TEEN DREAM!!!
It’s Kind Of A Funny Story, 2010
This awesome adaptation of Ned Vizzini’s YA novel of the same name totally does the book justice. It’s Kind Of A Funny Story follows Craig, a depressed teen who checks himself into the hospital after contemplating suicide. Emma plays Noelle, one of Craig’s fellow psychiatric ward patients. Exploring the darker sides of growing up, and educating audiences on mental illness, this dramedy is a much-watch. Oh, and Zach Galifianakis gives an incredible performance in the film as well.

We highly recommend checking out Ashby if you enjoyed the film adaptation of John Green’s Paper Towns — mostly ’cause Nat Wolff. Emma plays Eloise, the love interest of Nat’s character, Ed. Following the unlikely friendship between two neighbours, the movie tells the story of two lives heading in opposite directions.
