Huh. That seems low.

Only 51 different movies got a top 5 position, of those 23 appeared in the top 5 on only one or 2 lists. So effectively only 28 movies made consensus top 5s. Which is very top heavy. For almost the final 25-30 lists, I barely had to add additional movies since it was from the pool already in the list.

I guess there are only so many movies from just one year.

The breakout sequel to end all breakout sequels. Austin Powers 2 had one of the best marketing campaigns ever, including the Star Wars spoof trailer

 

 

It outgrossed the first movie within opening weekend and made Mike Myers a superstar for a few years. This James Bond spoof actually outgrossed all Bond movies till that time and only Skyfall has grossed more than this movie in the Bond series.

1999 was a great year for teen movies, most of which were based on older novels and plays with the setting moved to 1999 America. Cruel Intentions, based on the french novel, Les Liaisons dangereuses, was probably the most controversial of them. Bringing topics of sex and drugs to the forefront as opposed to under the surface like the other teen movies, this was definitely a gamechanger for the entire cast. 

 

Reese Witherspoon also had a breakout year between this movie and Election (which may or may not appear on this list) and Sarah Michelle Gellar consolidated her popularity from Buffy.

Hmmm. What do people think about this in comparison with the original? In terms of quality.

1 ----->2 --->3 (though the opening scene is great fun)

MPW-48199

 

 

One of my all time favorite comedies. This is a satire of Hollywood and a movie in which no one can be called a good person. Eddie Murphy not even being considered for an Oscar for this role is a travesty as he perfectly plays the Tom Cruise like movie star who is handled by a cult and his hapless brother who has to step in as a body double.

 

The movie includes a lot of funny sequences especially when they try to film a movie starring Eddie Murphy's character without him knowing he is in a movie.

 

The entire cast delivers hilarious performances and the movie is a great watch all around. It wasn't a box office success but might have made it into profit with home video.

I think it's the worst of the three Austin Powers movies... I don't think I had it on my list at all... wasn't this a top 30 list? Honestly, until it appeared at #25 I think I forgot it even came out in 1999, LOL... 

It made my list....

 

I thought I was voting for the first one.  :bagoverhead:

The movie which made people look at pies in a weird way. The biggest teen movie in a banner year for teen movies. This movie re-launched the teen sex comedy subgenre and became a franchise unto itself with a number of theatrical and direct to video sequels. Eugene Levy as the dad being the only recurring character in all the movies.

 

It also launched the careers of almost everyone in it, to such an extent that every actor is still associated with their role in this franchise regardless of what else they have done in their careers.
