13 Lies '90s Rom-Coms Told Me About Love
These movies gave us some eff-ed ideas about love!

But looking back, we're thinking these flicks had a bad influence on our dating lives. Shocking, right?

Many of us related to these high school girls on the big screen. We wondered, were we more like Bianca or Kat when it came to the hottest guys in school? And sure, who hasn't imagined that Hottie McHotterson would finally notice us when we took off our glasses and got our braces removed. WRONG.
