Top 5 ’90s Romantic Movies You Can Stream Now
From?Titanic?to?She’s Got Mail and everything in between, the 1990s delivered iconic romantic movies.
This is a list of our Top 5 really great movies that were made in the 1990s and where you can stream them if you don’t already own them. In the interest of being open, some of the major movies on this list will require that you buy or rent them from Amazon Prime.
1. The English Patient (1996)
Watch it on: Passionflix; Amazon Prime (with Passionflix add-on)
Romance! World War II! Flashbacks! More romance! What’s not to love about this Anthony Minghella film that won nine Academy Awards?
2. Good Will Hunting (1997)
Watch it on: Hulu; Amazon Prime (rent or buy)
Matt Damon might be best friends with Chris Hemsworth now, and Ben Affleck might have a back tattoo and a son who doesn’t love the Patriots, but Good Will Hunting is still a great film. Starring Damon as Will Hunting, a janitor at MIT who is a self-taught genius, the Boston-set film follows Will as he studies under a renowned professor and works with a therapist to assess his life, relationships, and future.
3. Titanic (1997)
Watch it on: Amazon Prime (rent or buy)
Titanic isn’t available to stream with a Netflix, Hulu, or regular Amazon Prime subscription, but you can rent it or buy it on Amazon, and that is still somehow less annoying than having to get up and change one VHS tape for another like we had to do in the late ’90s.
4. You’ve Got Mail (1998)
Watch it on: Hulu (with live TV); Amazon Prime (rent or buy)
Some might say that Tom Hanks catfishing Meg Ryan for an entire movie is rude. And those people would be right. But that doesn’t mean I don’t still love this romantic comedy that exists to also remind us about the existence of AOL.
5. She’s All That (1999)
Watch it on: Showtime; Hulu (with Showtime add-on); Amazon Prime (with Showtime add-on)
The success of She’s All That, a modern adaptation of Pygmalion in which Freddie Prinze Jr.’s Zack Siler bets he can turn any girl into the prom queen, was the start of a great run of teen movies at the end of the ’90s and early 2000s. And why shouldn’t it have been? The movie had a choreographed dance sequence at the prom!
