List RulesVote up the most hilarious comedies released between 1990 and 1999.

Here are the funniest 90s movies and the best comedies of the 1990s that are ready for your votes. Nineties nostalgia exists for a reason. One of the main reasons is the unforgettable  and classic comedies that came out in movie theaters. It is also why we still constantly replay them in our homes today. Thanks to the Zucker brothers, we got the Farrelly brothers (and thereby There's Something About Mary) while the Cohen Brothers furthered their epic '90s comedy filmography with The Big Lebowski. Adam Sandler became one of the richest actors in all of Hollywood history as a result of the 1990s. In fact, his popular '90s comedy movies Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore make up his production company name today: Happy Madison. And who can forget Austin Powers' catchphrases spreading like wildfire? Kevin Smith also had two slam dunks with Clerks and Dogma, while the David Spade-Chris Farley funny, unforgettable, onscreen duo did the same with Black Sheep and Tommy Boy.
