    I'll throw this one out there.

    Hilarious movie, well written, pretty much everything you would want. For some reason, it never really took hold. Well worth watching.

    Re: Underrated movies

    It might depend on who I'm talking to (because some people know it and others have no idea what I'm talking about), but Heathers was the first movie that popped into my mind. I never even heard of this movie until my English 105 class in the spring of 1998 (and by then the movie was a decade old). IMO it might very well be Christian Slater at his very best.

    Definitely a good one. I liked Slater in True Romance as well.

    Another great one is Scotland, PA. It's modern, comedic, retelling of Macbeth set in the 1970's. Very funny. Helps if you are familiar with the original story. The entire soundtrack is Bad Company, so that helps.

    I don't know if it was very well known when it came out, but I hadn't heard of it before I watched it.

    I also liked him in Kuffs. Not a great movie by any means, but certainly funny enough, and Milla Jovovich is just freaking hot...)

    I notice Session 9 on that first list. That's available to stream on Netflix as well. Good horror/psychological thriller flick. Keeps you guessing til the end. Worth watching.
