Clueless And 19 More 90s Movies Every Girl Needs To Watch At Least Once
2023/08/01

The 1990s were a goldmine for heartwarming films that still have a place in modern movie marathons. From iconic chick flicks to memorable rom-coms, the stories that came out of the '90s had a particular charm that we just don't see anymore.

Some of the messages, plot points, and characters that we saw in '90s films are a little dated by today's standards but that doesn't take away from the power these movies have to entertain us and leave us with those good feelings.

So, fans of Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant are in luck. Here 20 '90s movies that every girl should make a point of watching at least once.

From Clueless to Notting Hill to The First Wives Club, check out our must-watch '90s list!

20 Clueless Is The Ultimate Chick Flick

A cult classic, Clueless is one of those '90 films that never gets old no matter how many times you watch it. We'll never stop relating to Cher Horowitz or finding every outfit that appears in this movie totally iconic. Alicia Silverstone's facial expressions are still priceless all these years later.

19 Titanic Is One Of The Greatest Love Stories Ever Told

If you still haven't seen Titanic, shame on you! The fictitious tale of Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater's three-day love affair is one of the greatest love stories ever told. It's also impossible to watch the ocean scene without crying (although the tears mostly come from frustration because Jack totally could have fit on the door too).

18 Watch 10 Things I Hate About You, Because Every Girl Needs An Idol Like Kat Stratford

Not every '90s female lead is worthy of being a role model. But, feminist Kat Stratford who doesn't care what any man thinks of her is idol material! That's why every girl should watch the Shakespeare-inspired 10 Things I Hate About You at least once in her life.

17 Pretty Woman Is A Must-Watch

Pretty Woman probably wouldn't get the green light to be made today, but it is still one of the best movies of the '90s. The story of a woman who gets to take a businessman's cash to the expensive shops on Rodeo Drive? Yes, please. Also, the love story is pretty great.

16 You're Never Too Old For Beauty And The Beast

You'll never be too old to watch Beauty and the Beast, so put this one on your bucket list if you haven't seen it already.

The live-action remake starring Emma Watson is also worth seeing, but there's nothing quite like an original Disney animation. Watching it almost feels like there's a touch of fairy dust in the air!

15 See A Young Drew Barrymore In The Wedding Singer

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler are one of our favorite movie couples and this was decided long before 50 First Dates came out. They proved their chemistry in 1998's The Wedding Singer, about a wedding singer who falls in love with an engaged woman whose fiancé is terrible.

14 Muriel's Wedding Will Remind You That A Wedding Won't Make You Happy

Every girl should watch Muriel's Wedding at least once just to take away the message that marriage isn't automatically a happily ever after ending. Muriel reinvents herself, arranges a wedding with a handsome South African swimmer, and wears a dress that even Princess Di would have approved of. But it doesn't make her happy.

13 My Best Friend's Wedding Is The Feel-Good Flick We All Need

Julia Roberts really was the it-girl of '90s chick flicks and rom-coms.

My Best Friend's Wedding was one of the best of the bunch, particularly because of the chemistry Roberts shared with co-star Dermot Mulroney. Props to Cameron Diaz for holding her own next to Roberts, too!

12 Sister Act Is The Decade's Defining Musical

There were a few musicals in the 1990s, but Sister Act has to be the most iconic of the lot. Whoopi Goldberg hilariously stars as lounge singer Deloris, who must move to a convent when she joins the witness protection program. Song, dance, and laughs ensue.

11 Fall In Love With Hugh Grant In Notting Hill

We blame Hugh Grant in Notting Hill for ruining our expectations of love. Although Julia Roberts' character, Anna Scott, is kind of unfair to him, this love story is definitely worth seeing just for Grant's charisma and the romantic London scenery. Full disclosure: you will fall in love with William Thacker.

10 Sleepless In Seattle Is A Non-Negotiable

Sleepless in Seattle is one of those movies that you have to see before you die.

If you have any interest in epic love stories, iconic lines of dialogue, cute kids, or Tom Hanks, this film needs to be on your must-watch list. Sorry, but this one just isn't negotiable.

9 Romeo + Juliet, Even If You're Not A Shakespeare Fan

You don't need to be a Shakespeare fan to enjoy Romeo + Juliet. You just have to appreciate the beauty that is Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes coming together to portray the greatest love story in history. The language can be tricky to follow, but the emotion speaks for itself!

8 Edward Scissorhands, Just To See A Young Johnny And Winona Together

Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder were one of the hottest couples of the '90s. So watching them star together in Edward Scissorhands is really essential viewing. The odd and eccentric Edward Scissorhands might be a holiday movie, but we are down to watch it any time of year.

7 Every Girl Needs To See Thelma & Louise At Least Once

Thelma & Louise is difficult to watch in places and it will make you mad. One of the very few female buddy road films out there, Thelma & Louise was the '90s' most iconic feminist piece.

And this is a story that every girl needs to watch at least once.

6 Before Sunrise Will Melt Your Heart (In A Good Way)

One of the most underrated love stories out there, Before Sunrise will melt your heart in a good way. This is the tale of Jesse and Celine, an American man and a French woman, who spent Jesse's last hours in Europe together. A must watch for sure!

5 Sliding Doors Will Be Your New Favorite British Film

Sliding Doors never reached the popularity that other British films of the decade did, but it will quickly become one of your favorites.

Gwyneth Paltrow stars opposite John Hannah in this moving story set between two parallel universes about what is and what could have been.

4 Cancel Your Plans And Watch The First Wives Club

Old college friends who have been hurt by their husbands and decide to work together to get revenge? Yes. A story about sisterhood rather than girl-on-girl fighting? Yes. Women who use intelligence to get ahead? Yes. The original version of 'You Don't Own Me'? Yes! The First Wives Club for the win!

3 Get The Tissues Ready And Watch Stepmom

Stepmom is one of those movies that will make you bawl your eyes out. But this masterpiece needs to be seen. The perfect film for a cozy night in, Stepmom will make you appreciate the strong female figures in your life all the more. Just make sure you have tissues.

2 For The Hopeless Romantics Out There, Only You

If you want to see gorgeous Italian scenery and a story about a woman who still believes in fate, put Only You on your to-watch list. This light-hearted, feel-good flick about a woman who travels to Italy to find her soulmate will leave you with all the feels!

1 Runaway Bride, Because There's No Such Thing As Too Much Julia Roberts

There is no such thing as too much Julia Roberts, especially when you're watching '90s films. Runaway Bride is one of those rom-coms that every gal should see once, if for no other reason than to witness the epic reunion between Roberts and Richard Gere. Just look at her in that dress!
