Chick Flicks From the '90s that are Still Relevant

Many people see February as the month of love, which is the perfect excuse to have a movie night right in your Liv Avenida apartment. Watch some of these great films from the era of great chick flicks, the ‘90s, these last few days of February for a great way to finish off the month and find something to relate to in the dating game.


10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

Pretty, popular Bianca can’t date until her standoffish older sister, Kat, does. So Cameron, who’s fallen hopelessly for Bianca, and his friend launch a plan to get the much feared Patrick Verona to tame the shrew. This film takes a hilariously realistic approach to dating in high school and letting yourself be vulnerable for that someone who likes you just the way you are.

Clueless (1995)

Cher Horowitz and her best friend Dionne are the height of popularity, so they take new girl Tai under their wing to do some good in the world. But as Cher tries and fails to control other people’s love lives and her own, she realizes she may be just like all of us mortals when it comes to love and dating: sometimes just completely clueless.


Memorable Quote: “Searching for a boy in high school is as useless as searching for meaning in a Pauly Shore movie.”


Only You (1994)

Hopeless romantic schoolteacher Faith Corvatch has moved on from believing she’s destined to marry the man whose name she got from a Ouija board and a carnival fortune teller when she was younger. She’s about to marry a podiatrist she basically loves, after all. But when she gets a phone call from the elusive Damon Bradley, she decides to embrace fate and chase him to Italy, coming across a few speed bumps on the way.


Memorable Quote: “I married a liar. Why? Because I married a man.”


Never Been Kissed (1999)

Awkward but hopeful newspaper reporter Josie Geller takes on an assignment to go undercover at her former high school to do an expose on the nitty gritty high school life. Her naturally popular older brother helps her make a believable cover, which she puts at a high risk of being blown when she falls for one of her teachers, Sam Coulson, a dreamy, sensitive man she bonds with.


Memorable Quote: “The right guy, he’s out there. I’m not just gonna go kiss a whole bunch of losers to get to him.” “Yeah, but you know what? Sometimes kissing losers can be a really fun diversion.”
