Underrated films that people seem to think are a rubbish but really are not

Has this been done yet?

Anyway, my vote goes to Airheads (1994).

People went mad about Wayne's World back then, watch it now - bloody hell, best of luck getting to the end. The sequel is dire stuff too.

Airheads, while it's similar (and tbf arguably a copy of Waynes World) early-mid '90s nonsense, it has something about it. It features, Adam Sandler, Steve Buscemi, Brendan Fraser, Cosmo Kramer, Fat Tony/that bloke from Criminal Minds/Chuck McGill...and MORE! (well maybe one or two more).

The Lone Rangers live on.

The Counselor - 2013

Great cast (Bardem, Fassbender, Cruz, Diaz, Pitt, Catface from Game of Thrones)

Stylish and sexy, some great dialogue (script by Cormac McCarthy) and a great morality play. Diaz is great as an absolute uber cnut.

Extended cut version is even better.

I really like The Island of Dr Moreau but I can fully understand why someone would think that it's terrible.

Great call, I watched this on a flight once and thought it was amazing and a devastating ending, couldn't get it out of my head. Read the reviews and it was panned. Still think of the closing scenes from time to time.

Juno.

I think it got too hyped at the time and people turned against it. Plus a wise-cracking teen is off-putting to many. But Ellen Page was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for it and I completely understand why. She’s finds the vulnerable note that prevents Juno from being totally obnoxious.

Taffin. It has everything - car chases, explosions, a future James Bond, Frank Kelly, Dermot Morgan, Jonathan from Bosco, George from Glenroe, Bela from Fair City.

If you think it's rubbish, then maybe you shouldn't be living here.
