’90s & ’00s Movies Coming To Netflix In June 2018 That Will Make Your Inner Child So Happy
Given our current sociopolitcal climate, if you've been wishing for simpler times, you're in luck: On Wednesday, Netflix announced a whole slew of movies that will be available to stream come June, and a ton of your favorite '90s and '00s titles made the list.
Nostalgic impulses abound these days, from a handful of TV reboots of beloved shows like Charmed and Will and Grace, to the Broadway adaptation of Tina Fey's classic 2004 comedy Mean Girls.

The 1996 live-action version of 101 Dalmatians will also be available, and a fresh-faced Ryan Reynolds stars opposite Amy Smart in Just Friends.
