About This Quiz

The romcoms of the late 1990s and early 2000s were some of the most iconic and popular films of the day. Movies about high schoolers were all the rage, and people came out in droves to watch movies like "Clueless," "10 Things I Hate About You," and the iconic classic "Bring It On." This movie gave America cheer fever and has been playing on repeat on various TV channels for 20 years. 

Released in 2000, this movie is endlessly quotable.
