Kevin, eight years old, is accidentally left behind when his family departs for France. He is initially pleased to be in charge, but when thieves attempt to break into his home, he attempts to fight back.
Home Alone is one of the most famous Christmas movies of all time. It is the quintessential film that combines a lot of family fun with an engaging story, memorable characters, and touching moments.
2. American Pie (1999)
IMBD Rating – 7/10
To put an end to their bad luck with women, four friends, Jim, Oz, Finch, and Kevin, try every trick in the book to lose their virginity before prom night.
This film has updated the classic teenage boy film (Porky’s, Revenge of the Nerds) for the 1990s. It’s hilarious from beginning to end. American Pie has it all: physical comedy, gross-out comedy, and sexual comedy. This is a joy to watch thanks to a fantastic ensemble cast of likable young actors
3. Dumb And Dumber (1994)
IMBD Rating – 7.3/10
Two good-hearted but extremely stupid friends come across a briefcase. Unbeknownst to them, it contains money intended for kidnappers with ties to the mafia.
The main actors elevate this relentlessly stupid comedy: In an out-of-character performance, Jim Carrey goes bonkers, and Jeff Daniels carries himself admirably.
4. The Big Lebowski (1998)
IMBD Rating – 8.1/10
Two thugs misidentify ‘the Dude’ Lebowski as a millionaire and urinate on his rug. In an attempt to recoup his rug from the wealthy Lebowski, he becomes entangled in a complicated kidnapping case.
The Big Lebowski is a hilarious, well-written, and well-performed slacker comedy that blows other recent slacker comedies out of the water and proves that Jeff Bridges can play any role.
5. Office Space (1999)
IMBD Rating – 7.7/10
Peter, a software engineer, is fed up with his monotonous job and devises a vengeful plan with two of his friends to infect his company’s computer system with a virus.
Office Space, Mike Judge’s live-action directorial debut, introduces the true comic king of the cubicle hall. The film should strike an achingly familiar chord with 9-to-5ers all over the world as an extremely funny white-collar satire filled with enough delightfully off-kilter characters to fill a boardroom and the bright talent to do them justice.
6. Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)II
IMBD Rating – 8.3/10
Daniel is a divorced actor. He disguises himself as Mrs. Doubtfire, an elderly female Scottish housekeeper, to work in his ex-home wives and spend more time with his children.
“Mrs. Doubtfire” is both a hilarious and heartfelt film. This is unquestionably Robin Williams’ best film, with plenty of laughs as well as tears.
7. There’s Something About Mary (1998)
IMBD Rating – 8.5/10
Ted, a geek, hires a private detective to track down his high school sweetheart Mary’s whereabouts. He quickly realizes that to impress her, he must compete with others.
This is the Farrley Brothers at their best. The premise is simple: a guy (Ben Stiller) who had a crush on a woman (Carmen Diaz) he knew since high school and continued to yearn for her privately, finally getting the chance to reconnect with what never happened. Almost everyone can relate to this.
8. Dazed And Confused (1993)
IMBD Rating – 7.6/10
In 1976 Texas, a group of teenagers celebrates the last day of high school by chasing freshmen, partying at a local pool, indulging in drugs, and having a keg party.
‘Dazed and Confused’ is quite possibly the best teen movie ever made, and, from the perspective of someone who grew up in the 1980s, the best movie ever made about the 1970s.
9. Rush Hour (1998)
IMBD Rating – 7.2/10
When the young daughter of a Chinese consul is kidnapped, Hong Kong Detective Lee is forced to work with Carter, a loudmouthed LA detective. Distinctive work styles and cultural differences cause stumbling blocks.
A classic action film that delivers great action as well as hilarious comedy that will have you laughing throughout. Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan have always been among the best comedians, and their performances in this film are at their best.
10. Groundhog Day (1993)
IMBD Rating – 8.1/10
Phil, a conceited weatherman, travels to Punxsutawney for a job. When he wakes up the next morning, he realizes he has been reliving the same day over and over.
This is a warm, intelligent film. It truly lives up to its overwhelmingly positive reputation. A lot of substance, all understated, some laughs, respects its audience, and cleverly delivers points. This is a movie to watch if you want to be encouraged and shown a positive perspective with almost no pandering.
