74. The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride (1998)

57. Clay Pigeons (1998)
Vaughn and Phoenix collaboration number two for the year is less successful but this dark, barely comedy, still entertains enough to see a satisfying ending.

People who added this item 4324  Average listal rating (2963 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.6 
53. Armageddon (1998)
Hollywood cliche's at their best. The effects are cool and it's still harmless fun in the end.

Pullman and Stiller are great but I felt like it could have been a lot better.
