If you were a kid or a teen during the 90's we don't need to remind you of how awesome it was. But how well do you remember the movies and TV shows of this amazing decade? Because you'll need to be a 90's entertainment whiz to score high on this quiz!
The shows and movies that came out in the earlier part of the decade still reflected the same themes and styles that we saw in the 80's but just before the big Y2K rolled around we started seeing edgier plots and more graphic violence making its way onto the screens. There were less family-friendly films but most of the TV shows were still quite wholesome, focusing mainly on family dynamics.
In the 90's most folks did not have access to the internet, and even if they did, it was nothing like it is today. When you wanted to watch a movie you either went to the cinema or rented it on VHS and if you wanted to see the latest episode of your favorite show you had to wait for it to air on TV. Ah, good times...
Let's see how well you remember the best movies and TV shows from the 90's!
1Can you name this movie?
You know those famous last words: "It seemed like a good idea at the time"? Well, that phrase gives us an apt description of this 1993 movie.

He populates a small island with dinosaurs and plans to open a theme park but when they escape from their confines all hell breaks loose. Can you name this movie just by looking at the picture?
2Which 90's TV show starred Will Smith?
Unless you grew up without access to a TV from 1990 until 1996, there is no way you could have missed this show. In this family-friendly NBC sitcom, Will Smith played the role of a young man sent to live with his wealthy relatives in Bel-Air.

3In which 90's film did Brad Pitt make his debut?
These days Brad Pitt is considered an A-list actor, worth around $240 million. He commands paychecks in excess of $14 million to appear in a movie now, but it wasn't always like that. Everyone has to start somewhere and for Brad that somewhere was this 1991 chick flick, where he played the role of a sexy hitchhiker who steals money from the two lead characters. A year after appearing in this movie, he landed his first leading role in a big-budget production with A River Runs Through It.
4Can you match this character to her movie?
In the 90's there wasn't a teenage girl alive who didn't secretly wish that she was this character. She had everything - a successful father, a huge mansion, a wardrobe to die for, popularity, friends, good looks, a car, and even her name was cool! This 1995 teen movie starred Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, and Paul Rudd and was so popular that it spawned a TV show. Like cha!
