1. Galaxy Quest
In light of the fairly recent passing of the brilliant Alan Rickman, you really should see this movie if you haven’t yet…especially if you’ve ever been into Star Trek. This flick has a hilarious Tim Allen ruling a bunch of aliens. That’s basically all you need to know.
2. Rookie of the Year
I don’t know why, but I never really heard many people (outside of my family) talk about this movie. I think it’s a hoot. It’s fun to see Gary Busey almost being normal.
3. What About Bob
Mental patient Bill Murray stalks Richard Dreyfuss. What’s not to like? It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but Andrew and I quote this movie so much. I typically hate movies with too much conflict, but this is surprisingly still one of my favorites.
If you don’t like this movie, we probably can’t be friends. (Alright, we can, but I’ll question your every decision.) Robin Williams as Peter Pan is one of my favorite roles everrrrr. And when he reveals why he left Neverland and grew up, you will feel all the feels.
5. Iron Will
I’m not sure anyone has ever answered, “Yes!” when I’ve asked if they’ve seen this movie. GO BUY IT. Or come over and we’ll watch it together. If you can make it past the first 15 minutes of heart-wrenching sadness, I promise the rest of the movie is worth it. Also, young Kevin Spacey is adorbs.
6. Vertical Limit
Another one of my favorites, Vertical Limit is the perfect mix of action, emotion, and pretty scenery. You’ll have to deal with an obnoxious Bill Paxton, but Chris O’Donnell is precious, and you’ll thank the good Lord you’re not climbing a mountain the whole time you’re watching it.
7. While You Were Sleeping
I’m positive I’ve mentioned this movie on this blog before, but it deserves to be mentioned again. I wish Lucy and Jack were real people in real life. Romantic comedies rarely make it into my favorites list, but this one is GOLD.
I think I’ve talked this movie up enough already on this blog, so I’ll just say it once more…watch it. Kevin Costner is king.
9. Surf Ninjas
If you’ve heard of or seen this movie, we should chat, because I’m pretty sure we are in a 2% of the population and we might have some other weird things in common. This movie is ridiculous, but it’s one of those that you end up quoting and finding hilarious when no one else does.
10. The Kid
I forgot how truly in love I was with this movie until we finally bought it on Amazon and watched it again last week. It’s my favorite Bruce Willis movie. (YES I KNOW WHAT I JUST SAID.) It also made me cry waaay more than I remember crying in the past, but it is so. worth it. Hilarious, clever, and adorable. It also has one of my top 5 favorite movie endings.
Any suggestions for some other underrated movies we should check out? Happy Wednesday, folks! :)
