“My boyfriend and I CRIED when we found Cool Runnings, the story of the Jamaican bobsled team. One of the most underrated Disney movies EVER. Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme — get on up, it’s bobsled time!!!”

Heavyweights

“I was ecstatic when I saw Heavyweights on Disney+. I haven’t seen that movie since I was a chubby awkward middle school kid. Now that I’m a chubby awkward adult, it’s like reliving my childhood again.”

Lady and the Tramp 2: Scamp’s Adventure

“Maybe I’m biased because it was my favorite movie as a kid, but I haven’t seen it for years until I saw it on Disney again. Super underrated but it has it all: action, adventure, romance, music, family feels, nostalgia!”

“A few years ago during a ‘discussion’ with my boyfriend about movies, I got bored and (jokingly) said that it is the BEST sequel of all time, and I have been able to stick to my claim all these years later. Added it to my watch list so now every time he asks what I’m watching on my phone I can pull it up.”

“While the original is a classic, the new broadway musical is unbeatable. The choreography and score are amazing and the actors’ performances are incredible. And with a live show filming, it feels like you’re right up on stage with them. A must watch for musical fans everywhere.”

Willow

“One of my all time favorite movies which is definitely underrated. I’ve always thought it as in the same league as Lord of the Rings, The Neverending Story and The Princess Bride and doesn’t get the appreciation it deserves.”

clairew469e28fce

“This absolutely holds up. I haven’t seen this gem in 20 years and made me feel like I was eight years old again. Character are as good a so remember, story is better as an adult and the sound effects are dated but still we’re ahead of it’s time.”

So Weird


Disney

“Molly Phillips as a rocker mom whose kids get into some X-Files-esque hijinks, young and dapper Eric von Detten, and Blake Lively’s equally as beautiful older brother Eric. It’s what my youth was made of! Brought back amazing memories of being scared.”

The Parent Trap

“The original Parent Trap! I love that movie so much, but haven’t seen it since I stopped using a VHS! While I am a fan of the Lindsay Lohan version, the Haley Mills version is just classic and the costumes are so fun. My sisters both texted me this week and said they watched it too. If you haven’t seen it, give it a chance it’s worth it!”
