Here are some great underrated gems currently streaming on Netflix, you should check them out.

Bernie

By all accounts Bernie should have been a smash hit. Great Direction by Richard Linklater and great performances by Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey are paired with an amazing true-life story in this 2011 sleeper. Sometimes dark, sometimes touching and heartwarming, my guess is this will be a cult favorite within 10 years, maybe even the next Big Lebowski.

Butter

Jennifer Garner, Hugh Jackman, and Ty Burrell star in this hilarious midwestern satire, supported by Alicia Silverstone (remember her?) and Rob Corddry. Also, you get to see Olivia Wilde as a stripper, what more do you need to know?

Take This Waltz

Take This Waltz is a powerful drama starring Michelle Williams and Seth Rogan. It’s surprisingly refreshing to see Rogan perform in a serious role, and the creative story telling will keep you engaged.

Goon

This overlooked sports comedy starring Sean William Scott and Liev Schreiber is in the same vein as Slapshot, the Bad News Bears, Major League, etc. Sports fans and anyone with a sense of humor will probably dig it.

Trust

The subject matter of this film might be why it didn’t get much attention: it’s about a girl who is abused by a man she befriends on the internet. That said, it’s actually a film worth watching, featuring great performances by Clive Owen and Catherine Keener. Oh, and it’s directed by David Schwimmer (the dude from Friends.)

The Myth of the American Sleepover

One of the best coming of age movies in recent years, Myth is an outstanding film that will transform you into a 15-year old kid again and remind you of what an emotional roller coaster adolescence was.

Jeff Who Lives At Home

The chemistry between Jason Segel and Ed Helms is tangible; you could swear they were two actual brothers. This subtle comedy gives a very ernest depiction of what it’s like to have a close family member who might be just a little bit off. At 83 minutes long it is short and sweet.

God Bless America

Bobcat Goldthwait’s poignant dark comedy is the touching tale of a middle-aged homicidal maniac bonding with a teenage girl (in a non-sexual way) and going on a crime spree across America. This is a very satisfying watch because you see a bunch of the kinds of people you hate getting shot in the face.

The Freebie

When an attractive couple (Katie Aselton and Dax Shepard) decide to go out for a night and have one night stands with no attachments, it goes as poorly as you might imagine. This movie was funny and provocative, a great quirky comedy.

Sleepwalk With Me

If you are an NPR fan you’ve probably already seen this one, but you don’t need to be a public radio lover to enjoy Mike Birbiglia’s touching comedy. Based on Mike’s real-life experiences, Sleepwalk With Me catalogues one man’s struggle with sleepwalking (including jumping out of a second story hotel window) in a hilarious and interesting way.

The Company Men

Despite this movie’s all-star cast of Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Chris Cooper, and Tommy Lee Jones, The Company Men was largely overlooked. This film shows what happens when the elite and wealthy are faced with problems common to many Americans: unemployment, financial trouble, and family unrest.

The Do-Deca Pentathalon

Mark and Jay Duplass (you may know them from The League) perfectly capture sibling rivalry in this film about two hyper-competitive 30-something brothers. A great indie comedy with a little bit of heart.

Fly Away

A powerful eye-opening drama about a single mother raising a special-needs child, this movie is more generally about the relationship between kids and parents. Anyone who has kids or has been a kid will probably relate to this movie.

Like Crazy

It has some elements of a rom-com, but Like Crazy is ultimately a sad film. It follows the romance between Jacob (Anton Yelchin) and Anna (Felicity Jones), portraying love in a very honest light, which is rarely seen on screen. It’s absolutely worth seeing.
