List RulesVote up the movies that came out in 2000 that you still enjoy today.

Are you ready to feel old? We've got a list of films turning 20 this year, and it's guaranteed to blow your mind. How can it possibly be that twenty years have gone by since The Perfect Storm, Meet the Parents, and Almost Famous first hit screens? Sure, they've been around for a while, but two full decades having passed just doesn't seem possible.

Movies that came out in 2000 run the cinematic gamut. There are blockbuster hits, like the Jim Carrey version of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible II, and Sandra Bullock's Miss Congeniality. There are award winners, like Best Picture Gladiator and the film that earned Julia Roberts an Oscar, Erin Brockovich. Cult favorites from that year include Best in Show, Coyote Ugly, and Dude, Where's My Car? There were even a few films we bet you've forgotten all about. When was the last time you thought about Drowning Mona or What Planet Are You From? Probably about twenty years ago, right?

Given that you've had a whopping two decades to reflect on them, vote up the films that are 20 years old which still mean the most to you, and check back to see how other users are voting.
