There comes a time in every child's life when birthday parties aren't just birthday parties anymore, they're sleepover parties. And sleepover parties mean a few things: 1) you're going to have to get a sleeping bag, and 2) you're going to watch movies — lots and lots of movies. When it comes to sleepover birthday parties, the sleeping part is really optional. Instead of "sleep," it's more like "watch movies all night long and try to be the last awake." And, oh, what fun it was to watch movies until dawn. Let's take a walk down memory lane and remember these 17 movies you definitely saw at a birthday party in the '90s, especially at a sleepover.
If you were anything like me, sleepovers were the most stressful of birthday parties. I used to spend hours practicing braiding my doll's hair before a friend's big party, and, I'll admit, I was the kid who called their parents at 11 and asked to be picked up. So the biggest sign of a successful sleepover party was making it through the second movie of the night. These 17 movies you definitely saw at a sleepover birthday party in the '90s are just a few that helped me make it all the way through the night.
