14 Classic '90s Movies You Can Stream Right Now
Personally, I don't care if it's summer or winter — any time of the year, I almost always prefer to stay indoors and watch TV. Sure, my Vitamin D levels have suffered as a result, but there is nothing more perfect to my mind than finding a classic movie on the streaming service of my choice, pouring a tall, cold drink, and ignoring all phone calls for the foreseeable future. And if, like me, your idea of heaven is reliving all of those '90s sleepover classics your parents rented from the video store for you back in the day, good news: this list is for you. It's time to examine all of the '90s movies you can stream right now on the likes of Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, and HBO. You need this.
The '90s was the perfect decade for so many reasons but, first and foremost, it brought us some of the legit best romantic comedies of all time. The '90s also produced some of the best high school movies ever, in which teenagers dressed the way we wanted to dress, and talked so eloquently we wanted to replicate their catchphrases ("As if!") . So which movies are available to stream right now? It's time to relive all of the classics.
1. The Wedding Singer (1998) On Amazon Prime
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore have worked together several times now, but their first collaboration is still so much fun to watch. Sandler plays a depressed wedding singer, and Barrymore plays a waitress who's engaged to someone else. She likes his music, and fate keeps throwing them together. As far as I'm concerned, these two are the dream team and can do no wrong.
2. Runaway Bride (1999) On Amazon Prime
Another couple who always work well together, Julia Roberts and Richard Gere star in this romantic comedy about a woman who's incredibly difficult to pin down. The movie poster alone is an iconic piece of '90s memorabilia.
3. Free Willy (1993) On Amazon Prime
These days, movies about whales are harrowing and game changing — but, back in the '90s, we were all captivated by the simple story of one whale and the boy who loved him. What a classic.
4. Twister (1996) On Amazon Prime
Disaster movies were as terrifying in the '90s as they are now.
5. Anastasia (1997) On Amazon Prime
If you didn't fall instantly in love with Dimitri (who was voiced by John Cusack!) get out of here!
6. Space Jam (1996) On Amazon Prime
Michael Jordan. The Looney Tunes. Enough said.
7. Shakespeare In Love (1998) On Amazon Prime
William Shakespeare in a romantic comedy with Gwyneth Paltrow? Sure, why not?
8. Good Will Hunting (1997) On Showtime
This movie not only has Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in it (they also wrote it, obv), it features Robin Williams in one of his legit best roles of all time. You HAVE to watch this right now.
9. Jerry Maguire (1996) On Hulu
Tom Cruise had everyone at hello, OK? Plus, he completes me.
10. Wayne's World (1992) On Hulu
Party on Wayne, etc. etc.
11. Clerks (1994) On Amazon Prime
In my opinion, Kevin Smith was never better than in his ultra low-budget debut movie. It encapsulates exactly what it's like to work in retail.
12. Ghost (1990) On HBO
So many classic scenes in this Patrick Swayze schmaltz-fest. I love it forever.
13. Dumb And Dumber (1994) On HBO
I'm not even sorry this made the list.
14. Phenomenon (1996) on Netflix
I've always had a soft spot for this '90s movie in which John Travolta starts experiencing strange things in his home town, and realizes he might just have telekinetic abilities. Guaranteed to make you cry.
Now it's time to organize the perfect '90s-themed sleepover with your besties, because these movies aren't going to watch themselves.
