These days, they just don't make teen movies like they used to back in the 90s. Yes, they were usually cheesy, and the characters made some questionable life and fashion choices, but they often had useful messages to convey, and gave us celebrities to crush on.
Over the years, we have all re-watched these movies multiple times, and can quote a lot of the lines ( “Do you prefer fashion victim or ensembly challenged?” Anyone?). But no matter how many times you've seen a movie or Googled the cast, there are still some interesting, and at times wild, facts you still don't know about them.
Here are 16 tidbits from some of the best teen movies from the 90s:
1. Instead of Adrian Grenier, Elijah Wood was supposed to star alongside Melissa Joan Hart in Drive Me Crazy. He didn't get the role because they thought he looked too young.
2. Mila Jovovich met Shawn Andrews on the set of their movie Dazed and Confused, and became a bride at 16 after they eloped.
3. And the cast drank real beer for most of the scenes.
4. 10 Things I Hate About You was inspired by Shakespeare's The Taming Of The Shrew, and the title is supposed to sound somewhat similar to the play.
5. Wild Things originally featured a scene where Matt Dillon and Kevin Bacon showered together.
6. She's All That was filmed at the same high school as Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
7. Marilyn Manson had a cameo in Jawbreaker because he was dating one of the stars, Rose McGowan.
8. In Election, Mathew Broderick is actually urinating in the "peeing in the woods" scene that takes place in Linda's yard.
Wait until to find out what made Ryan Phillipe throw up on the set of Cruel Intentions...
9. After the slap scene with Reese Witherspoon in Cruel Intentions, Ryan Phillipe was so worked up that he ran off set and threw up.
10. Lois Duncan, the author of the book, I Know What You Did Last Summer, admitted that she hated the movie.
11. A cooked sausage propped by a pencil, and wrapped in foil had to be placed between Jason Biggs' legs in order to replicate an erection in an American Pie scene.
12. Oh, and the apple pie was from Costco.
13. On the set of Scream, Wes Craven had to tell Drew Barrymore real life stories about animal cruelty to keep her crying and looking terrified.
14. In Clueless, Alicia Silverstone couldn't pronounce "Haitians" in one of the classroom scenes, but the producers thought it was funny and included it in the final cut.
15. M. Night Shymalan was a script doctor for She's All That
There is an entirely different set of lifestyles between students in the 90s and now. Today, a lot has changed in terms of technology, personal preferences and fashion. In the modern setting, the most commonly used platform that lacked in the 90s is social media. Students meet and socialize on the platforms, but in the 90s, you had to travel miles to meet people. With the absence of Google, no doubt that education in the 90s was very strenuous because there was no information to complete assignments.If you attended high school in the 90s, you must be having an
Guess who's back, back again? Moranis's back, tell a friend!One of my all time favorite actors is going to grace us with an appearance on the silver screen. Remember him from Strange Brew? Or maybe Ghostbusters? Little Shop Of Horrors? Way back when in 1997, Rick Moranis began what would become a long break from acting. He wanted to dedicate his time to his two children as a widower. He has not appeared in a live-action film since, other than some voice-over work for a few animated films, notably Disney's Brother Bear.Maybe his most iconic role was that
On February 3rd, General Mills announced that our childhood dreams have come true: the iconic 90's snack Dunkaroos have returned.Dunkaroos were an absolute necessity during snack time, and we all had our preferred method when inhaling this treat. Some of us evenly spread out the rainbow frosting on each cookie; others dunked the biscuit into the frosting a bite at a time; the bravest of all simply swallowed the cookie then used your fingers to scoop out the frosting.Regardless, this snack united our taste buds. Trucks move 71% of the nation's freight by weight and at least half
For a lot of people, interior design is about much more than simply slapping a coat of paint on your walls -- which is why we're willing to spend so much money on it. Even aside from interior design, we tend to spend a lot of money on our homes. Each year, a typical homeowner spends about 1% to 4% of their home's value on maintenance and repairs. What this means is that if you have a home worth $200,000, you'll spend around $2,000 on keeping it as it is each year. The older your home becomes, the
