20 groovy movies turning 20 in 2017, baby

By  | 

It’s hard to believe, but a full 20 years has passed since everyone in the world began quoting Austin Powers. Yeah, baby. Yeah.

It’s always fun to re-watch movies you grew up with. You can poke fun at fashion trends that have not aged well (metallic lipliner, anyone?) and technology that was once considered cutting edge. Or if you just want to yell at the screen because there was plenty of room on that floating door, Rose.

If you’re ready admit that you’re officially old, watch these movies that premiered in 1997, a time when women shaving their heads was noteworthy.
