What some people did halfway through this film.

Sgt. Bilko (1996)

I don't know what happened here. Martin clearly owed someone a favor.

Matilda (1996)
She's cute, as always, but the movie was a mess.

People who added this item 57 Average listal rating (42 ratings) 5 IMDB Rating 5
Carpool (1996)

Tom Arnold is a crack-up in this messy film.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 106 Average listal rating (72 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 5.8
House Arrest (1996)

J Love was amazing even as a kid.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 458 Average listal rating (319 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.8


Chan's big US debut proves he can hold his own, the film itself was pretty awful.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 538 Average listal rating (335 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.5
One Fine Day (1996)
Pfeiffer is one fine lady
Stehako's rating:

Sinbad can be a funny family comedian, too bad the filmmakers suck.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 185 Average listal rating (109 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 6
She's the One (1996)

Petty's soundtrack might be the only solid thing about this dialogue'd film.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 162 Average listal rating (116 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.3
The Arrival (1996)

Sheen attempts the serious after a series of comedies.

They go from beating the world to trying to beat varsity... what a disappointment.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 165 Average listal rating (96 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.1
Trees Lounge (1996)
Buscemi doin' what he does best... it's too bad the film falls flat.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 101 Average listal rating (63 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.7
Probably my least favorite Murray role, but he's still awesome!
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 405 Average listal rating (294 ratings) 4.7 IMDB Rating 4.9
The Phantom (1996)
Interest in Billy Zane's Phantom sunk faster than the Titanic... because he was in that movie... but I like that movie.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 139 Average listal rating (85 ratings) 5.1 IMDB Rating 5.7
A very disappointing sequel
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1462 Average listal rating (859 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.7


Too strange as a kid to really enjoy the adaptation.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 421 Average listal rating (260 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7
I'll partly blame it on the fact that I didn't see this until I was an adult; but the songs in this are terrible and acting by the boy is worse. Luckily enough of the Muppet humor is still present for this to be deemed slightly entertaining but a disappointment after the lovely Muppet Christmas Carol

Emma (1996)

Bed of Roses (1996)

Makes me think women might like flowers...

Space Jam (1996)

Jordan's first attempt at movies is worse.

People who added this item 81 Average listal rating (50 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7
Citizen Ruth (1996)


Alexander Payne's first is his weakest. But I did like the ending.

Bulletproof (1996)

And I will always love you, too.

A True 'shoot 'em up'

People who added this item 953 Average listal rating (619 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.1
The Birdcage (1996)


A decent remake of the French film/play "La Cale Aux Follies"

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 359 Average listal rating (240 ratings) 4.3 IMDB Rating 4.4
Bio-Dome (1996)

More like Bio-Dumb!
Still, you can't fault a movie that includes an appearance from Tenacious D.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 471 Average listal rating (321 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.9
The Fan (1996)
Not a big fan of this slow burner that never scalds.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 458 Average listal rating (270 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.8
Day-Lewis brings respect to this somewhat dull adaptation
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 883 Average listal rating (583 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.1


Peter Jackson creates a strange ode to cheesy ghost flicks starring The Michael J Fox in, strangely, his last live-action movie role.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 75 Average listal rating (46 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.6
A dialogue-heavy tale that frustrates as much is it curates. None of the characters are entirely likable, which makes it a little more realistic, I suppose.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 177 Average listal rating (102 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.3
Pacino goes Richard III all up in this doc. Many years later Spacey (who is in this) will star in 'House of Cards' a modern story of Richard III.
Stehako's rating:


Long title, silly movie.

Eraser (1996)

Big movie, bad taste, cool guns, Arnold.
Stehako's rating:
Just like watching the show... only not as funny
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 171 Average listal rating (111 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.3
A lot of shooting, a lot of talking but not a lot of plot.
Stehako's rating:

Behind-the-scenes look at what happened after Carson retired from late-night. The performances, aside from Kathy Bates, were awkward. It was very made-for-TV; but kept interest.

2 interesting days in the valley, true, but they never amount to much as the climax arrives too soon. I felt like only half the story was told by the time we got to the end.

Basquiat (1996)
Jeffrey Wright is fantastic in his debut lead. This is a film that wants to be extra artistic but gets in the way of itself with too many conventional ways.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 188 Average listal rating (102 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.3
Big Night (1996)
Small movie, big taste.
Stehako's rating:

Marvin's Room (1997)
DiCaprio was in another movie this year, and with some older ladies.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 442 Average listal rating (285 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.8
Fly Away Home (1996)
I'll admit, I enjoyed this sappy tale. See it with your kids.
Stehako's rating:

Dead Man (1995)


Another very strange Jarmish film with an all star cast and a great ending.
