10 Hilarious 90s Comedy Movies Everyone Forgot About

10 Hilarious 90s Comedy Movies Everyone Forgot About
The 90s was an amazing decade for comedic films, introducing the world to movies like Groundhog Day, Grumpy Old Men, Happy Gilmore, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Full Monty, Mrs. Doubtfire, Wayne's WorldLoaded Weapon and much, much more. And while comedy in this decade is often defined by just a handful of films, there were hundreds of them released from 1991 through to 1999.

‘Showbiz Kids’ Movie Review: Child Stars Tell Troubled Tales in Sobering Documentary

‘Showbiz Kids’ Movie Review: Child Stars Tell Troubled Tales in Sobering Documentary
You’d think it would be easy to make a movie about the dangers of child stardom and the pressures put on children who want or are pushed to become actors at a young age. All you’d have to do it present a chronicle of the many young actors whose careers and sometimes lives melted down prematurely in the wake of early success.

But while Alex Winter shows us some of those cautionary tales in his new HBO documentary “Showbiz Kids,” they don’t occupy center stage. His focus, instead, is on a group of smart and articulate former child stars, some of whom still have careers in Hollywood – and while you wouldn’t think of Evan Rachel Wood, Jada Pinkett Smith, Henry Thomas, Wil Wheaton or Milla Jovovich as casualties by any means, the stories that they tell make “Showbiz Kids” even more powerful than it would be

Robin Williams movies: 20 greatest films ranked from worst to best
The remarkable Robin Williams would have turned 69 on July 21, 2020. He remains a comedy icon, and even though he is gone, the legacy of his film work lives on. Equally adept at outrageous comedy and sensitive drama, Williams was a one-of-a-kind performer, one whose unique style will likely never be equaled. He tragically died on August 11, 2014.

After success as a stand-up comic and television stardom via “Mork and Mindy,” Williams turned to film and achieved success far beyond what his TV success could have indicated. He won an Academy Award for “Good Will Hunting” (1997), one of four Oscar nominations he earned in his career. Williams also earned two Screen Actors Guild Awards (for 1996’s “The Birdcage” and “Good Will Hunting”) and received nine Golden Globe nominations, winning statues for 1987’s “Good Morning, Vietnam,” 1991’s “The Fisher King,” 1993’s “Aladdin” and 1994’s “Mrs. Doubtfire.”
