15 Comedies From The '90s That Are Funnier Than Anyone Gives Them Credit For

- Page 1

There are tons of movies that, while great, never quite find the audience that others do. The 90s were full of great comedies like Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Clueless, and Dumb and Dumber, but if you haven't seen any of these next 15, you should fix that immediately.

Bowfinger

Steve Martin wants to make his dream movie, but can't get the actor of his dreams, Eddie Murphy, to star in it. What does he do? Film him without his knowledge and hire a lookalike for the rest! It's as hilarious as it sounds.

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

Starring General Zod himself, Terence Stamp, as a transgender drag performer and both Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce as their best friends, this desert-trekking adventure is as over the top as its title implies, and it's an absolute blast.

George of the Jungle

Back when Brendan Fraser seemed everywhere in Hollywood, he wowed us with this six-pack and hilarious performance as the titular take off of Tarzan.

Grosse Pointe Blank

John Cusak is an assassin (yes, really) who attends his high school reunion, where he hopes to win back Minnie Driver, the girl who got away. He just has to survive the attempts on his life by a rival hitman, played by Dan Aykroyd. It's awesome.

Half Baked

Before Dave Chappelle entertained audiences worldwide with the immensely successful Chappelle's Show, he starred in this hilarious, incredibly stupid stoner comedy that we love to this day.

Wag The Dog

Robert De Niro hires a Hollywood producer played by Dustin Hoffman to fake a war in order to distract from a presidential scandal. It's sharp, witty, and just plain great.

Some of these are pretty well known, but you probably forgot about these next few...
