    That's four good films there.

  • How is Friday underrated? It's one of the top 5 most beloved films in the African-American community.

  • What about those not in the African-American community?

  • Fair point but is a film truly underrated if it's recognized by a group? Kind of like how fans of Napoleon Dynamite love its quirkiness but most just find it annoying.

  • Also, is Walk Hard in this list?

  • I'll pay you....*checks Paypal account*....£8.79 to take The Other Guys off this list.

  • @Steve: Sorry, Daniel Rodriguez paid £12.36 to put it on the list in the first place.

  • Fuck's sake, this is why I gave up on eBay.

  • Would Lubitsch's Bluebeard's Eighth's Wife be eligible? It never seems to come up when people discuss his movies even though it has the quintessential meet-cute and is just as funny if not more than anything else he's done.
