19 Popular ’90s Movies That Everyone No Longer Talks About

Most of the decades in the 20th century have special events that make the decade best known. For example, the 1920s were known for prohibition; the 1950s saw the rise of television as a means of mass communication and entertainment, and the 1970s had dance floors. But the closer we get to the present, the more blurred everything seems. The last decade of the century is perhaps not long enough for us to have any significant prominent trends. 19 popular ’90s movies that everyone no longer talks about. 

However, if we could choose, we would probably say that the most striking thing about the 1990s was cinema. In fact, many of the films of that decade, now almost 20 years on, are still considered masterful classics and deeply rooted in culturalism. However, some films are not as popular as they used to be. Speaking of which, do you still remember any of your favorite movies of this period? Let’s take a look back at these 19 films that were hot in the 1990s have faded away.

#1 Disturbing Behaviour (1998)

Teen slashers abounded in the 1990s, with certain films standing out more than others. James Marsden, Katie Holmes, Ethan Embrey, and Nick Stahl star in this sci-fi horror about teenagers who essentially get the Stepford Wives treatment. It’s not a really good film, but that didn’t stop any tween or adolescent from seeing it in 1998.

#2 The Flintstones (1994)

The Flintstones hit the big screen in this live-action version of the classic cartoon. Fred helps Barney adopt a child. Barney sees an opportunity to repay him when Slate Mining tests its employees to find a new executive. But no good deed goes unpunished.

#3 Baby’s Day Out (1994)

Baby’s Day Out is a Hughes film that addresses the question, “What if Home Alone had a genuine infant?” Three criminals steal a baby from an affluent family, only to be outsmarted by the child. It’s 99 minutes of pure slapstick humor that makes no sense yet is entertaining to children.

#4 Andre (1994)

Free Willy is well-known, but what about Andre? Andre is based on a true story and is set in the 1960s. It follows a little girl and her family as they care for an injured seal. It was amusing and sad, like all good animal films should be, and it starred Tina Majorino, who was in every children’s film that Mara Wilson wasn’t in.

#5 3 Ninjas (1992)

There are some films on our list that have likely not aged well, but this one is right up there, which may explain why it has been mostly forgotten by the culture. But it was huge at the time — in fact, there was a whole series of 3 Ninjas movies! They were about three brothers who were taught ninja skills by their grandpa and then went on to face the FBI and other bad guys.

#6 FernGully: The Last Rainforest (1992)

The Last Rainforest is an American-Australian co-production about fairies that guard the trees and fight loggers and Hexxus, the personification of pollution, in an Australian rainforest. It’s likely best recognized today as the movie James Cameron was accused of plagiarizing for Avatar, with a voice cast that included Tim Curry, Christian Slater, and Robin Williams.

#7 Corrina, Corrina (1994)

Source: New Line Cinema

Corrina, Corrina, although being panned by critics and a box office flop, made its way into the hearts of many ’90s kids. In this film set in the 1950s, Whoopi Goldberg plays Corrina, a maid, and nanny for a heartbroken widower (Ray Liotta) and his little daughter (Tina Majorino), who is mute since her mother’s death. They all fall in love, of course.

#8 Curly Sue (1991)

Source: Warner Bros

This John Hughes film hasn’t had the same long-term cultural influence as some of his other classics, maybe because it seems like only kids enjoyed it. Jim Belushi portrays a homeless guy who adopts an orphan named Curly Sue (Alisan Porter) and enlists her assistance in committing fraud. Their lives change when they scam the wrong (or is that right?!) person.

#9 The Pagemaster (1994)

The Pagemaster is a 1994 American live-action/animated fantasy adventure film starring Macaulay Culkin, Christopher Lloyd, Whoopi Goldberg, Patrick Stewart, Leonard Nimoy, Frank Welker, Ed Begley Jr., and Mel Harris. Culkin stars as a timid boy who uses statistics as an excuse to avoid anything he finds uncomfortable in life. But after reluctantly undertaking an errand for his father, he gets caught in a storm, which forces him to seek refuge in a library. He then finds himself trapped inside the library, where he must battle his way through literary classics to come to life if he is to find his way home.

#10 Excess Baggage (1997)

Off the back of her monumental success in Clueless, Alicia Silverstone starred alongside Benicio del Toro and Christopher Walken in this crime-comedy. A young rich girl, desperate for some fatherly attention, fakes her own kidnapping by locking herself in a car trunk – but when the auto is stolen by a rakish thief, comedic trouble ensues!

#11 Inventing the Abbotts (1997)

Set in the 1950s, Inventing the Abbotts is a dramatic look at the life of two boys from the wrong side of the tracks and their interaction with the three daughters of local aristocrat Lloyd Abbott. The boys, Jacey and Doug Holt, have only three things in common: their family, table tennis and chasing the beautiful Abbott sisters. Their father, a reckless risk-taker, lost his life through a wager with Lloyd Abbott, his then business partner.

#12 The Hairy Bird/All I Wanna Do/Strike! (1998)

Even at the time of its release, All I Wanna Do, called The Hairy Bird in Australia and Strike! in Canada and the UK, was under-watched and underappreciated due to its jumbled and confused distribution. However, for those who did manage to see it, it’s a treasured classic about a group of 1960s girls who struggle to save their school from becoming co-ed. Kirsten Dunst, Gaby Hoffman, Rachael Leigh Cook, Monica Keena, Heather Matarazzo, and Merritt Wever are among the cast members, with Vincent Kartheiser, Matthew Lawrence, and Lynn Redgrave rounding out the cast.

#13 Gattaca (1997), Popular ’90s movies

Source: Columbia Pictures

Gattaca was a box office flop, but if you saw it on TV or rented it from Blockbuster, you probably watched it more than once. The science fiction is set in the “not-too-distant” future, when eugenics separates people into “valids” and “in-valids,” with the “in-valids” having limited rights. Ethan Hawke plays Vincent, a “in-valid” who poses as a valid because he wants to fly to space, but whose ambitions are jeopardized when he becomes involved in a murder investigation conducted by his own brother. Uma Thurman and Jude Law are also in the cast.

#14 Bio-Dome (1996)

Bud and Doyle are two losers who are doing nothing with their lives. Both of their girlfriends are actively involved in saving the environment, but the two friends couldn’t care less about saving the Earth. One day, when a group of scientists begins a mission to live inside a “Bio-Dome” for a year without outside contact, Bud and Doyle mistakenly become part of the project themselves. The two must then learn how to protect the Earth and help the scientists complete their mission.

#15 The Little Giants (1994)

Source: Warner Bros

The Mighty Ducks and The Sandlot appear to be the most popular ’90s kids’ sports films, but The Little Giants was a classic. It was a humorous and quotable movie that starred everyone’s favorite poster boy, Devon Sawa, and had the traditional rag-tag gang of clumsy underdogs up against the sleek, affluent, and brilliant squad.

#16 Coneheads (1993), Popular ’90s movies

Source: Paramount

Coneheads is a 1990s comedy film starring Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin, Michelle Burke, David Spade, Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, Drew Carey, Parker Posey, Ellen DeGeneres, and Jason Alexander about aliens imprisoned on Earth. It’s not a terrific film, but it was extremely popular among children who believed that being able to recite comedies word for word was the pinnacle of hilarity.

#17 It Takes Two (1995)

Source: Warner Bros

The Olsen twins play identical strangers (lol) — one an orphan, Amanda, and the other a rich teenager, Alyssa — who meet at summer camp and decide to swap lives before hatching a scheme to bring Amanda’s social worker (Kirstie Alley) and Alyssa’s father together (Steve Guttenberg). The Olsen twins did a lot of movies as kids, and guess what? This was among the greatest.

#18 FairyTale: A True Story (1997)

Source: Icon Productions

FairyTale: A True Story is set in 1917 in England and is partially based on a true story (as the title suggests). It is about two girls who capture an image of fairies that shocks the world. It’s a lovely film with an even crazier factual narrative, but it appears to have mostly been forgotten since the 1990s.

#19 The Horse Whisperer (1998), Popular ’90s movies

Source: Touchstone Pictures

A young Scarlett Johansson plays as Grace, a teenager who is in an accident while horse-riding with her closest friend in this angst-filled picture that appeals to every dramatic horse girl. Grace and her horse are seriously hurt, but her best friend and her friend’s horse are dead. Grace’s mother (Kristin Scott Thomas) sends her and her horse to a horse whisperer for healing. It’s the type of movie you watch when you need a good cry, but it doesn’t seem to get as much attention as films like Beaches or The Notebook.
