Two that I keep coming back to are Rock Star & Rock of ages. Neither should be regarded as high quality, but I love them.
Oh man. I need to watch Rock of Ages again. Staceee Jacks.
I've only seen it once. Great film.

The thread is just going to turn into people listing great movies which aren't considered rubbish in the first place. With that in mind, I'd like to be one of the first

Highly annoying actress imo - even just annoying to look at before she starts speaking.

This movie was her high point really and has disappeared into minor exposure since. Not that I'm complaining about that.

Juno doesn't qualify for the concept of this thread really as it was well-reviewed / rated at the time....

I think that anything above about 55 or so on metacritic should be the exclusion bar for not being "under-rated"

Juno for example got 81 which is a very high score for a movie.

Wayne's World 2 is a classic, it's hard to believe some people think it's rubbish.

Bloodsport was really good, but gets a lot of slack, especially around the actor playing the young Frank Dux.

Soul Man- a movie that probably wouldn't be made now.

Straight to DVD and free on you tube and I have met only two other people who have also seen it - I think Ink (2009) was artistically one of the best low budget movies I have seen. Good effects given their tiny budget and just generally well acted.

I think it belongs because people haven’t continued to speak well of it. The Metacritic reviews are from when it was released.

The Cobbler (2014) starring Adam Sandler

10 % rating on rotten tomatoes.

Saw it on a flight and found it quite good .
