Fall, aka pumpkin spice latte season, is about to be upon us, and you know what that means? No, not just comfy sweaters and cute hats — it means that it's time to start planning get togethers with your friends where you all hang out, watch movies, and reminisce about the old days (you know, the '90s). And as we all know, there is nothing like a good childhood film to bring out that seasonal nostalgia, as shown by these '90s movies that'll get you ready for fall like nothing else.
Most movies that have something to do with fall tend to revolve around the events of Halloween or Thanksgiving, but watching films set during those two celebrations aren't the only ways a person can get ready for the quickly approaching season (although there are plenty of holiday-set movies on the below list, don't worry). Many of the other movies on the list center on the start of a school year, fall festivals, and family gatherings, and all of these backdrops help create a perfectly whimsy atmosphere of autumn. So get as cozy as possible on the couch, grab your friends, and bring out all your autumn essentials to spend some time watching these nostalgic fall movies, which are all streaming now.
