Love ’90s Movies? Prove It By Identifying 40 of 50 of These 90s Girl Movies

I’m obsessed with 90s movies so it was only a matter of time before I made this quiz, in which you are dared to identify as many of these 50 ’90s movies as you possibly can. After you take it, feel free to find out which 90s movie made you gay.

  1. I got 41/50 (really should have been 42, as I accidentally clicked one wrong answer when I knew the right one was the answer below), and I saw so many of those in theaters/rented them from our local awesome video store back in the ’90s.

    • Same and same. My movie viewing and awareness in the ’90s was so white.

      I also came to the conclusion that ALL ’90s movies made me gay. It’s so weird how you can look at something as an adult with the benefit of hindsight and realize “oh, THAT’S what I was feeling.”

  2. ahhh, reliving the media landscape of my queer awakening as a preteen. “now and then”? “girl, interrupted”? basically any 90s film featuring winona ryder? although my root may have been the 1995 (I had just turned 10) Christian Ricci vehicle “Casper.”

  3. 36/40 in 4 min 19 seconds.
    Would have been higher if I actually took that extra split second to make sure I read the titles completely before button mashing. But still maybe would have only gotten 3 more correct, lol.

  4. For being born in ’89, I got a decent enough score (35). What’s funny though is I’ve only actually seen 12 of those movies! I am more of a nerd for knowing *about* movies though than actually seeing them lol

  5. 41 – just scraped in lol :)

    So many great flashbacks. Have very fond memories of Now and Then and all the 1998/99 teen movies.

    Also always find it slightly random some of the movies I saw in the cinema with my parents/younger brother as a 10/11/12 year old, e.g. First Wives Club, While You Were Sleeping

  6. 46/50 in 3min 34sec. It would’ve been 48 but I was trying to go too quickly and got tripped up by similar-looking but wrong answers. I clicked “Firefox” instead of “Foxfire”!!! That will haunt me forever.
