In lieu of Valentine’s Day, USDISH has released each state’s most-googled ‘90s rom-coms.
The ‘90s was a decade full of classic rom-coms we are obsessed with to this day. We’re still drooling over Vivian’s red dress in Pretty Woman and when someone says something ludicrous, we can still hear Cher say, “As if!”
USDISH, an online authorized reseller of DISH, found that both Clueless and My Best Friend’s Wedding are equally America’s most popular ‘90s rom-coms. In New York, it’s Pretty Woman with the lead!
Heartwarming Facts About Your Favorite ’90s Rom-Coms
- Clueless and My Best Friend’s Wedding share the limelight as the most googled movie with 12 states each, though Father of the Bride was not far behind with 10 states.
- Pretty Woman is the highest-grossing rom-com from the ’90s, bringing in $178,406,268 since it opened in March 1990. It’s the 4th highest-grossing rom-com of all time.
- Only two of the movies on the map were made before 1995: Pretty Woman and Father of the Bride.
- None of these movies have been remade yet, but both You’ve Got Mail and Father of the Bride were remakes of earlier films. Father of the Bride also has a sequel, and The Wedding Singer was turned into a musical.
- 10 Things I Hate About You was the most searched for movie in Washington. Most likely because of the filming location being in Seattle.
- Clueless director Amy Heckerling found out about the game “Suck and Blow” at an impromptu party at her house. She liked it so much, Cher and her friends play it at their own house party.
- Meg Ryan worked at an NYC bookstore called Books of Wonder for a week in preparation for her role as Kathleen in You’ve Got Mail.
- In Father of the Bride, George Banks ended up paying $249,323 for Annie’s wedding, according to BeFrugal.
- Cameron Diaz didn’t want to sing in front of an audience in the karaoke scene for My Best Friend’s Wedding, so she lip-synced in rehearsal. But, at the last minute, director PJ Holmes thought her embarrassment would match her character Kimmy’s, so that’s really Cameron singing ‘I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself.’
