“The Stupids. It’s about a naive family that ends up on ridiculous adventures due to countless misunderstandings. The humor is so wholesome and, of course, stupid.”

 

“Bubble Boy starring Jake Gyllenhaal. No one outside of my family seems to have heard of this movie.”

 

"There’s this movie called Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland. This kid goes to sleep, wakes up in a castle, and is an honored guest. He’s given a key but told not to open one door.”

Yada yada yada, he opens the door and this big black tar monster comes out and destroys everything and everyone it touches. This movie was horrifying to me as a child, but no one seems to remember it.”"

 

“Wild America! It was literally one of my family’s favorite movies and no one ever seems to have any idea what I’m talking about.”

“The Pest starring John Leguizamo. I quote this movie to this day. ‘Love, peace, and chicken grease!'”

 

“Quest for Camelot. It had an absolutely STACKED voice cast (Cary Elwes, Jane Seymour, Céline Dion, Gary Oldman, and Pierce Brosnan, among others), but has been largely forgotten.”

 

“Grosse Pointe Blank starring John Cusack, Minnie Driver, and Dan Aykroyd. It’s about a hitman who goes back to his 10-year high school reunion.”

 

“Surf Ninjas! My husband and his brothers always talk about how much they loved that movie, but no one ever remembers it.”

“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Great script and great performances by Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer. Each time I see it, I discover something new because it’s so fast-paced. People should really see it. It holds up.”

 

“Escape to Witch Mountain — the ’90s version. Not the 1975 original, and not the 2009 Race to Witch Mountain with the Rock.

I’m talking about the 1995 made-for-TV version, staring Elizabeth Moss and Erik von Detten as twin orphans separated at birth who find each other as tweens and turn out to be from an alien planet full of twins with superpowers and glowing purple lights. It’s bananas. No one remembers this version and I feel like a crazy person.”

 

“This one is for the Gen X people. My sister and I seem to be the only ones who remember an animated movie called The Chipmunk Adventure, where the Chipmunks and Chipettes have to go around the world delivering diamonds. We were/still are obsessed.”

 

“Lost & Delirious starring Jessica Pare and Piper Perabo.”

“Franklyn. A visually striking British dark fantasy starring Ryan Phillippe and Eva Green, where everything turned out to be not quite as it seemed. I’ve yet to meet anyone who’s ever heard of it, but it was a really well-acted film with a surprisingly emotional payoff at the end.”

 

“Spacecamp! No one I know has heard of it and I can’t find it anywhere.”

 

“Prayer of the Rollerboys. Good luck even finding it. It came out in 1990 starring Corey Haim, yet virtually no one has seen it. It tells the story of a post-economic disaster US, and the takedown of a white supremacist gang of rollerbladers selling drugs.”

 

“Muppet Classic Theater. My Nana always found the most bizarre movies that no one else seemed to know.”

“Tuck Everlasting! I loved the book, and the movie is honestly kinda corny, but it’s a pretty good adaptation of the novel.”

 

“Whatever It Takes, a teen movie that adapted Cyrano the same way 10 Things I Hate About You did Taming of the Shrew, and She’s All That did Pygmalion, with the twist of this one being two female love interests.”

 

“Death to Smoochy, starring Robin Williams, Edward Norton, Catherine Keener, and a whole host of other amazing stars. Seems like no one else has heard of it.”

 

“Trading Mom. It’s a 1994 semi-fantasy movie where these kids wish for a new mom and go to a ‘mommy market’ to pick a few to try out. Spoiler alert: they learn they loved their real mom all along. It has Sissy Spacek, Anna Chlumsky, and Andre the Giant, but no one watched it.”

I've seen more of these than I should probably admit to...
Quest for Camelot, Grosse Point Blank and Death to Smoochy were great and I honestly thought Spacecamp was just some kind of fever dream from my brain. Had kinda forgotten about that one...

I've never forgotten Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold.
I also liked Hudson Hawk, which no one else did.
