The 1990s were really something. It took us some time to shake off the frame of mind and the style of the 80s but by 1992, we were knee-deep.
The Soviets weren’t around anymore, LA was burning and Terminator 2 came out as the best movie ever. Rap continued to grow and expand, movies got a bit better, internet porn started happening and people wore flannel again. Seattle became a cultural center, we went into Iraq for the first time, the tech industry exploded, we cloned a sheep. Oh yeah, and people used pagers.
But who were the stars that we loved in the 1990s? Who were the faces that teens had on their walls? Let’s check it out.
1. Jim Carrey
Jim Carrey sort of came out of nowhere in the 1990s, giving the world a taste of his talents which some found irritating but which many more found hilarious. We first noticed him in In Living Color, the Wayans bros TV show.
Then, in 1994, Jim seemed to be in every comedy that came out. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Dumb and Dumber and The Mask all came out that year and you’d think that this would be too much Jim. Nope. Next year we got another Ace Ventura movie and Batman Forever with Carrey playing The Riddler. The Truman Show and Man on the Moon also came out in the 90s.
He remains popular to this day, but it is safe to say that the 90s were Jim Carrey’s golden years. So many movies. So much success.
