The ’90s were not cool. No matter how much one looks back on the era with nostalgia, we have to admit it wasn’t pretty. Chain wallets, Beanie Babies, and Crystal Pepsi are just a few of the awful things to come out of the ’90s—and we’re in no mood for more. Still, there’s a sense of pride that comes from having lived through it (and survived it), especially when there was so much to be embarrassed of.
Out of everything, the most noteworthy artifacts to come from the ’90s have to be the bad movies. Oh, so many bad movies. This day and age we have bad movies like The Room, where viewers can enjoy how horrible it is. The ’90s, on the other hand, didn’t make these kinds of films. They were just plain awful and, sadly, they’ll be around forever. They cannot be destroyed or erased from history forever.
We’re not going to let a couple of horrible movies ruin our childhoods. Instead, we’re going to put our knowledge of them to use. What better way to do this than to take this quiz on the ’90s dumbest movies? There’s no better way of moving on from the memory of watching these movies than taking this quiz.
