I actually didn't see this until several years after it was released, but even then it felt very fresh and exciting. Nothing in the movie really dates it. It sort of defies time in the sense that it was innovative while at the same time being kind of a throwback flick. As far as 90s movies go, you could do a lot worse than Pulp Fiction. Reality Bites for example. I'm choosing that as an example because it came on TV a while back, and it was so painfully 90's that I couldn't sit through it all.

A couple of years ago I put it on for some friends who had never seen it, and they loved it just as much as I did the first time I saw it nearly 10 years ago.

I think the only way time has hurt this film is that it spawned virtually an entire era of knock offs, plus there's always a backlash when a movie gets to be such a sacred cow.
