Back in June I asked the question “Did their love last?” of some couples from 80’s movies. Now I ask the same of the 90’s:

Nikita (1990): At the end of the movie Nikita (Anne Parillaud) walks away from everything including Marco (Jean-Hugues Anglade), but was this the end of their relationship? 

Pretty Woman (1990): Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts) got her fairytale ending with Edward Lewis (Richard Gere) but did they live happily ever after? The big question, does anyone care?

Point Break (1991): We know from his conversation with Bodhi (Patrick Swayze) at the end of the movie that Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves ) still surfs every day, but does he do it alone or with Tyler (Lori Petty) and are they still together now?

Dazed and Confused (1993): It’s the last day of school and a group of kids have their whole lives ahead of them but lets be honest they arn’t thinking much beyond the summer. There is lots of hooking up going on but will any of them be lasting relashionships? Possibly first love for Mitch Kramer (Wiley Wiggins) and slightly older girl Julie Simms (Catherine Morris). Sabrina Davis (Christin Hinojosa) and Tony Olson (Anthony Rapp) make for an awkward couple but possibly the one that lasts longest. Cynthia Dunn (Marissa Ribisi) and David Wooderson (Matthew McConaughey) are the most unlikely combination, will they last the summer? Will they last long enough to see Aerosmith? Michelle (Milla Jovovich) and Kevin Pickford (Shawn Andrews) seem to be a long term couple And what is Randall ‘Pink’ Floyd (Jason London) up to? Will he end up with Simone Kerr (Joey Lauren Adams) or Jodi Kramer (Michelle Burke)?

Pulp Fiction (1994): We know that Ringo aka Pumpkin (Tim Roth) and Yolanda aka Honey Bunny (Amanda Plummer) love each other, they mentioned it before threatening to “execute every motherfucking last one of ya”. But what happened after they left the coffee shop?

The English Patient (1996): The war in Europe is over and nurse, Hana (Juliette Binoche) has survived as has her lover Kip (Naveen Andrews) a Sikh sapper in the British Army. Will these two people from very different backgrounds make a future together?

Fight Club (1999): The Narrator (Edward Norton) told Marla Singer (Helena Bonham Carter): “You met me at a very strange time in my life”. As the building come crashing down around them, is this the foundation for a lasting romance?

L.A. Confidential (1997): Will Veronica Lake lookalike Lynn Bracken (Kim Basinger) and bruiser cop Bud White (Russell Crowe) find peace and happiness together?

Eyes Wide Shut (1999): Dr. William ‘Bill’ Harford (Tom Cruise) and Alice Harford (Nicole Kidman) have had some marital problems. Alice has suggested a solution, to “Fuck”. But will this be enough to bring the couple together? Played by real life couple Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman who divorced two years after the film came out.

G0 (1999): They say opposites attract, and good girl Claire Montgomery (Katie Holmes) and drug dealer Todd Gaines (Timothy Olyphant) really are opposites. The appearance of the Vegas bouncers cuts their encounter short, did they have a round two?
