    I too love Warren. I remember when "Shampoo" came out. I was a kid, but the promotions for the film was huge. I always get the question in Trival Pursuit about which Beach Boys song was in the movie. It is drilled into my head, 'Wouldn't It Be Nice'.

    Another song from that movie totally has me on the floor laughing my a** off, the way it was used. It's the tune that comes up when Felicia (Lee Grant) turns on the radio while she's on top of George (Beatty) in her house while he is lying on the bed, exhausted because he's just been with her daughter (Carrie Fisher). It's such an insanely happy, peppy tune it just kills me

    I don't think GG was underrated at all! it did well at the box office and got lots of critical praise.

    Boogie Nights!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Should have won the Oscar that year but I think that Piece Of Shit from hell Shakespeare in Fuckshit w/ Gywneth Shitface won instead

    every performance in Boogie Nights was an absolute Treasure!

    ^^I agree about Clueless, it's really an excellent film on many different levels. In fact, I think it was too good and as a result, Heckerling (writer/director) and Silverstone have really floundered in their careers following it. Who would have though Thai would be the only one to have a successful career!

    *Muriel's Wedding
    *Grosse Point Blank (this movie is a real gem, you have to watch it more than once)
    *A Life Less Ordinary (I hate Cameron Diaz in this but Ewan McGregor makes up for it)

    Totally agree with this choice.....and I would add three more of Gary's movies that should have gotten more attention:

    STATE OF GRACE....Gary Oldman blew Sean Penn out of the water in this movie.
    ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD....More brilliant Gary Oldman.
    IMMORTAL BELOVED....Gary was AWESOME as Beethoven. Also starred Isabella Rossellini.




    ETA: I LOVE Muriel's Wedding too!!

    Sleepers - Tres excellente. I think it didn't get more play because of the subject matter, but there were definitely some award-worthy performances and writing in this movie. ( I just re-watched it this past weekend).

    Has anyone already named The Shawshank Redemption?

    IMO, that's the most underrated movie of all times. No Academy Award, no nothing. Too bad, it's my favourite movie.

    It might not have won best picture (though it was nominated), but it was certainly celebrated:

    Awards for The Shawshank Redemption

    I do love it too though.

    I'd put Shawshank in my overrated category. Go figure.

    ^^Me, too. I never got the big deal about it. In fact, when I interviewed Tim Robbins about it when the movie first came out, he said as much. He was especially contemptuous of the ending, which is absolutely ludicrous even by standards of Hollywood reality.
