Can You Believe These 10 Movies Turn 20 In 2017?
We feel old.
Do you remember 1997? Hanson and Toni Braxton were at the top of the charts, Princess Diana died tragically and Zima was the drink of choice. It’s hard to believe that was 20 years ago! If you remember the ’90s like they were yesterday, you’re going to love this list of 10 movies that turn 20 years old in 2017. Grab some popcorn, sit back and prepare to step back in time!
Teenage girls everywhere flocked to the theater (sometimes multiple times) to catch dreamy Leonard DiCaprio in his breakout role as Jack, an artist who falls in love with the aristocrat Rose (Kate Winslet) aboard the ill-fated Titanic. Who could forget Celine Dion’s smash-hit “My Heart Will Go On” from the film? We’ll never let go.
2. “My Best Friend’s Wedding”
An instant rom-com classic, “My Best Friend’s Wedding” starred Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz and Dermot Mulroney. Everyone who ever fell hard for a friend could relate to this tale of unrequited love. The best part? The “Say A Little Prayer For Me” singalong at brunch.
3. “Good Will Hunting”
Matt Damon was just 27 years old when he starred in this touching story of a gifted young man struggling to find his way in the world. Written by Damon and real-life best friend Ben Affleck, the film scored two Oscars that year. How do you like them apples?
4. “Men In Black”
Ahh, the ’90s. Will Smith was fresh off “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and was a rapper as well as an actor. His turn as a secret agent that supervises extraterrestrial life forms on Earth made for a major blockbuster. Now you have the theme song stuck in your head, don’t you?
5. “Spice World”
Is there anything more ’90s than the Spice Girls? While it’s questionable now whether they deserved their own movie, you probably watched in with glee back then. Something from the flick that’s still in style? Girl power!
6. “Life Is Beautiful”
This tearjerker depicted the horrors of the Holocaust with heart-wrenching realism. The moving story of a father that goes to great lengths to protect his son is worth the subtitles, and the tissues.
