Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1540  Average listal rating (851 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.4 
74. The Lion King II: 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 4404  Average listal rating (3016 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.

A disappointing finale for Farley but enough laughs overall

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