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...

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie

'Free Willy' Came Out 25 Years Ago, But Where Is The Star Of The Movie Now?

Watching Free Willy as a kid made us all appreciate whales a little bit more than we did. We didn't realize what it was really like for the animals in those amusement parks, and while it was a fictional story, it was sad to see. But luckily, Jesse was there to stop the evil plan that was put in place to drain Willy's tank so the amusement park owners could claim the $1 million insurance money. Jesse helps Willy escape, of course by using a super high jump that of course we all remember as the most iconic scene of

'A League Of Their Own' Is Coming To TV And We're Hoping It's A Home Run

We all learned that there was "no crying in baseball," but apparently there is a lot of laughter, because A League of Their Own is coming back, but this time as a half-hour sitcom! The classic 90s movie about the baseball league that was created during the second World War stole audience's hearts, and they are hoping that there are still a few home run stories to tell with a new show. It's kind of a reboot, so I get it if you're hesitant, but even if you don't like the new show, there's always the original movie to go
