Top 10 Films checks out a selection of the greatest comedies of the 1990s – not an easy task since the decade was overloaded with them – including The Wedding Singer, Groundhog Day and Dumb and Dumber.
The last century (it sounds a bit strange!) has brought us so many things that no other century could bring (well, except for the times of the Roman Empire that brought us prostitutes, wine, and hedonists). However, only in the last 100 years, a great number of inventions have been created, which have obviously brought significant benefits to mankind but, no doubt, have made life itself more interesting.
The 20th century brought us the greatest discovery in the history of mankind – the cinema! Oh, how much was filmed throughout these years! We saw a lot, from the arrival of the train and the love scenes between Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh to insane special effects in 3D!
If your attitude to the cinema is a bit biased, then the old movies probably look alien to you, and the new ones are too effective, and they have not yet established themselves in us.
But we still can remember the legendary comedies we, with greedy, yet childish eyes, used to watch over and over again either on TV or video. In this list, you’ll find 10 of them – and they are really cool!
After this film, the world wasn’t the same anymore – everyone suddenly began thinking about the probabilities of getting into the time loop and the consequences of it. We all began to imagine our lives in such a loop – what would I do if I got caught in such a loop? Would I follow the hero’s steps? First, he gorged himself on the harmful food and then took up self-education. Or would I drink every day without fear of a headache in the morning and terrible consequences for the liver? Or, like a hero of this movie, would I rob the collectors and spend every day like a millionaire?
Blast From The Past
An entreated paranoid professor, hearing about the aggravation of the conflict on the radio, decided it was time. Time to go underground. Parallel to this, in the air over their house, the fighter lost control and fell on the professor’s house, which reasonably gave him the ground to think that the end of the world happened, and he was absolutely right.
What can I say – everyone knows what kind of movie this is. This is a film that stands on the brink of eras, revealing what was previously only partially portrayed in the “Porky’s” but extolling it to a higher comedy level. Concerned graduates, striving to lose their virginity at all costs, do everything possible for this and achieve success as a result.
It’s a masterpiece of the Wayans brothers. A true masterpiece. Elegantly realized parodies, hard humour: the film became truly cult, leaping over the popularity of the parodied films in the plot.
Men In Black
Describing the urban legend of the United States on the big screens gave birth to a new wave of paranoia in American society. Since 1947, when the UFO in Roswell crashed, many have started talking about the terrible Men in Black, who come at night, brainwash, threaten, and even abduct people. By the end of the 90s, the mania calmed down, but the notable troll Barry Sonnenfeld decided to bring the legend back. He made men in black positive characters.
Dumb & Dumber
Nobody even guessed about such horizons of stupidity, but here it is – the hope of many Americans that there is someone more stupid than each of them personally. That’s probably why this film became so popular – everyone, even rednecks with IQ below 100 can now neigh and sentence “He is sooooo stupid!!!!! Look at this idiooooooot!!!”
Don’t Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood
The first significant masterpiece of the Wayans brothers. They filmed a hilarious movie, and, through the prism of utopia, they portrayed life in a black ghetto exactly as the majority of Americans pictured it.
Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
Search for the American dream through the narcotic and alcoholic haze, a series of surreal events, and an extremely subjective view of the author – that’s what Fear and Loathing… is all about. This film was created under the scrutiny of Hunter Thompson himself, who, when developing the script, did not like the literal perception of his metaphors by the director, who was told to go to hell.
The Wedding Singer
This masterpiece will inspire you to start looking for girls for marriage! It’s a film from the 90’s telling about the 80’s – that’s interesting. Outfits, music, manners – everything is displayed if not exactly, then ironically. The DeLorean, a symbol of the automotive of the 80’s, also appears in the movie! But most people love it because of two songs. Only two songs, brilliantly performed by Adam Sandler – Love Stinks and Somebody Kill Me.
And the first spot goes to the most important and most iconic film of the 90s. Well, maybe not only the 90s. Dogma is a film that must be in all the ratings of The Greatest Movies of the Century, in all time capsules under schools, and in all sorts of archives that preserve mankind’s best creations!
