    21 Movies That Are Old Enough To Drink This Year

    NO WAY did these films come out 21 years ago (spoiler alert: yes way).

    1. Pulp Fiction

    Miramax Films / Via

    Yep, that's right. Marcellus Wallace has NOT looked like a bitch for the past 21 years.

    2. The Lion King

    Disney / Via

    If Simba were really born in 1994 and was also a person and not a lion, he could legally drink in the United States of America.

    3. Interview with the Vampire

    Warner Bros. Pictures / Via

    Had this movie come out this year and not 21 years ago, you KNOW that all of its many sequels and expanded universe films would be virtually guaranteed.

    4. The Little Rascals

    Universal Pictures / Via

    Darla and Alfalfa probably have a kid by now. That kid can't drink, but they can.

    5. The Santa Clause

    Disney / Via

    Bernard the Elf might be thousands of years old, but the first time we laid eyes on his crotchety visage was 21 years ago.

    6. The Pagemaster

    Turner Pictures / Via

    21 years in the past, this movie scared the shit out of you.

    7. The Swan Princess

    Nest Family Entertainment / Via

    Does anyone else...remember this movie?

    8. Little Women

    Columbia Pictures / Via


    9. Black Beauty

    Warner Brothers Family Entertainment / Via

    Every horse kid's favorite movie turns 21 this year. Pour one out for Ginger next time you hit the bar.

    10. The Shawshank Redemption

    Columbia Pictures / Via

    The Shawshank Redemption is old enough to join Red on the beach and sip a Corona.

    11. Stargate

    StudioCanal / Via

    Do you think sleeping in a sarcophagus would heal a hangover?

    12. Dumb and Dumber

    New Line Cinema / Via

    You probably wouldn't want to get Dumb and Dumber drunk, but you could if you wanted to.

    13. Richie Rich

    Warner Bros. Family Entertainment / Via

    21 years later, Richie Rich is using his in-house McDonalds as a drunk food pit stop on his way upstairs.

    14. Angels in the Outfield

    Walt Disney Pictures / Via

    Angels in the Outfield can now buy one of the big sloshy beers at a baseball stadium. Feels good.

    15. Thumbelina

    Warner Bros. Family Entertainment / Via

    For a year that lacked a Disney princess film release, 1994 did a good job on giving us two of the iconic-for-being-almost-Disney princess films (see: The Swan Princess).

    16. Ed Wood

    Touchstone Pictures / Via

    Tim Burton and Johnny Depp worked together previously on Edward Scissorhands, but 21 years ago there was this particular darkly cute collaboration in which Depp played another pale, weird dude named Edward.

    17. The Mask

    Dark Horse Entertainment / Via

    The Mask is old enough to P-A-R-T-why? Because it's gotta!

    18. Timecop

    Universal Pictures / Via

    Van Damme kicked ass 21 years in the past and still kicks ass today probably.

    19. Surviving the Game

    New Line Cinema / Via

    We learned the most important rule of movies 21 years ago, which is never, ever try to kill Ice-T.

    20. Clerks

    Miramax Films / Via

    Clerks can pour a little something extra into one of those convenience store slushies, starting this year.

    21. Forrest Gump

    Paramount Pictures / Via

    If you drink a Dr. Pepper with rum, you'll probably have to pee even faster.
