Top 10 Favorite '90s Chick Flicks
Posted on 11 October 2016
We all have our guilty pleasures. Some people enjoy binge-watching reality televisions while others prefer curing up with the latest book from the best sellers list. Mine, however, happens to be cheesy chick flicks; the cornier the better! Of course I have the go-to's that I love to watch over and over. I've seen them so many times, in fact, that I've begun to consider myself a regular connoisseur of movie quotes! Ask me a question, and I'll answer it with a line from a movie. I thought I'd seen all there was to see as far as rom-coms go. Except one night while perusing Netflix, I came across colorful imagery for a movie poster that caught my eye. It featured a group of actors that were mainstays in the 1990's and the second I pressed play and was hooked! I made it my mission to watch every single '90s rom-com possible, and have made it my duty to pass on this pot of gold to you, Shop Priceless readers! Pop some popcorn, curl up on the couch, and enjoy!
2. Can't Hardly Wait - 1998
Warning: Ooey gooey cheesiness ahead! And featuring an actress who regularly uses her middle name: Jennifer Love Hewitt.
3. Never Been Kissed - 1999
I just re-watched this the other day! Brownie points for the main character being a journalist!
4. Jawbreaker - 1999
Who knew a candy so sweet could be so sinister? Two words: Peachy keen.
5. Romy and Michele's High School Reunion - 1999
Two air headed (but extremely fashionable) besties attended high school in Arizona and came back 10 years later to show everyone up. What's not to love?
6. Drive Me Crazy - 1999
Honestly, who didn't love Melissa Joan Hart? Clarissa Explains it all and Sabrina The Teenage Witch were my jam!
7. 10 Things I Hate About You - 1999
Trivia time! Did you know this film was based off William Shakespeare's play, "The Taming of The Shrew" And how drool-worthy was Heath Ledger?
8. Drop Dead Gorgeous - 1999
There's little romance involved in this dark comedy filmed in a before-its-time mockumentary style. But with a stellar cast: '90s teen princess, Kirsten Dunst, Denise Richards, Brittany Murphy and a budding Amy Adams, it's no wonder this flick has transferred from box office bomb into the cult classic category.
9. She's All That - 1999Maybe one of my favorite '90s movie of all time. Freddie Prinze Jr. was my teenage dream!
10. Cruel Intentions - 1999
Never mind, I lied. This is MY. FAVORITE. MOVIE. OF. ALL. TIME! Reese Witherspoon was (and will always be) my ultimate girl crush. And Ryan Phillippe? Total heartthrob material. If you don't watch anything else, watch THIS!
And there you have it! Which one was your favorite? If you haven't seen any of them, which one are you most excited to watch? And most importantly, is there a film that I'm spacing on that should have made the list? Let me know in the comments!
