The 1990s were a great decade for cinema, bringing us a variety of movies that can seemingly transport us back to when they were filmed. 

Here are some of the best films to watch if you want to feel nostalgic about the ’90s. 

“Clueless” (1995) has so many memorable fashions and quotes.

There is arguably no film more ’90s than Amy Heckerling’s “Clueless.”

Starring Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, and Brittany Murphy, “Clueless” is a unique take on the Jane Austen novel “Emma.”

In the film, wealthy and popular teen Cher Horowitz (Silverstone) helps a nerdy student become popular only to later realize how misguided her intentions were. 

Complete with iconic clothing, an undeniably ’90s soundtrack, and an array of notable slang, this nostalgic masterpiece truly encapsulates the spirit of the era.


“10 Things I Hate About You” (1999) features high-school struggles many can still relate to today.

An adaptation of Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew,” “10 Things I Hate About You” is a romantic teen comedy that portrays high school in the ’90s. 

The teens in this film aren’t quite rich like the characters in “Clueless,” but they battle the same issues that many high-school students faced during the decade.

Starring Julia Stiles, Gabrielle Union, and Heath Ledger, the film has it all — a bit of grunge fashion, an iconic musical sequence, and just the right amount of ’90s angst.

“You’ve Got Mail” (1998) has just about every element of a ’90s film.

“You’ve Got Mail” is an homage to a time when the internet was a relatively new thing and email was a topic worthy of writing an entire film around.

In the movie, business rivals Joe (Tom Hanks) and Kathleen (Meg Ryan) unknowingly fall in love while being each other’s online pen pal. 

From the unmistakable sound of dial-up internet to the iconic AOL voice saying, “Welcome!” and “You’ve Got Mail,” the film captures the nostalgia of ’90s technology like no other.
