1. The Meaning of Life (1983)
I have no idea why this movie isn't as talked about as the other two Monty Python movies. It may not be Holy Grail, but it's funnier than Life of Brian in my eyes!

2. Mallrats (1995)
Critics panned it for being too much like Clerks, but that's because certain directors have their own styles. It's not as good as Clerks, but it's still freaking hilarious!

3. UHF (1989)
Why isn't "Weird Al" Yankovic's movie as well-known as his music? If you love his songs, you'll probably love this movie too.

4. Fanboys (2009)
It's a PG-13 comedy with crude humor, but there's nothing else wrong with it. I don't know why Harvey Weinstein wanted to ruin this movie like so many others. This is no Seltzerberg schlock. It's a great comedy with a lot of laughs and a lot of heart.

5. Top Secret! (1984)
This was made by the same people that did comedy classics like Airplane and The Naked Gun, yet is still overlooked. It's a hilarious spoof of war/Elvis movies and I highly recommend it!

Oh yes... while other kids were watching Disney's biggest hits at the time, me and my next door neighbor missed out on those because of Weird Al.

No regrets there.

Once Upon a Forest was also underrated in my opinion.
