The Best Romantic Comedies of the '90s

1994: Muriel's Wedding
ABBA, Australian accents, and Toni Collette--what more could you want in a movie?

1996: One Fine Day
Le sigh, George Clooney.

1996: That Thing You Do!
Now you'll have the Oneders' (I'm sorry, The Wonders!) hit-making song stuck in your head the rest of the day.

1997: Fools Rush In
The premise is a tad non-traditional for a romantic comedy--a one-night stand results in an "Oops! I'm pregnant!" quickie marriage--but this flick has a ton of heart, a lot of laughs, and a cute Friends-era Matthew Perry.

1997: Romy and Michele's High School Reunion
I was going to write my favorite quote from the movie, but let's be honest--there's no picking just one. Have a Romy and Michele day!

1997: My Best Friend's Wedding
This scene! THIS SCENE! It is why I watch this movie one a month, without fail.

1998: Can't Hardly Wait
In the '90s who didn't have the biggest crush on Ethan Embry? Or was that just me? Anyway, this tale of finally getting the girl on the night of a high school graduation party is one to watch--especially for a tiny cameo of Jason Segel as the "Watermelon Guy."

1998: The Wedding Singer
Although the rest of the movie is good too, the whole film is worth watching for the final scene when Adam Sandler sings to Drew Barrymore. Cue the awwww's.

1998: Ever After
This slightly stretches the definition of a romantic comedy (Cinderella's story gets kind of dark at times, no?), but we'll make an exception. Also, try and ignore the '90s dance music over the trailer. No idea what that's about.

1999: Notting Hill
Nothing is more '90s romantic comedy than Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant. 
Put them together in the same flick? Genius.

1999: Never Been Kissed
Love this adorable story of former nerdy girl Josie Grossie Josie Geller (Drew Barrymore) gets a second shot at high school as an undercover reporter. Also, Michael Vartan is really hot.
