21 Super Underrated Movies On Hulu Right Now That You Definitely Need To Watch
Ah, the vast collection of titles that makes up the Hulu library. Where does one even begin when selecting a movie? Sure, there are plenty of big deal hits available for streaming at the moment, but there are also a lot of super underrated movies on Hulu. And yes, we are about to get into those very movies.
I have looked through the list of films currently available on the streaming service and picked out a few solid options. Looking for an indie flick that garnered some buzz but deserved even more buzz? Or maybe you want to watch a lighthearted made-for-TV movie that you did not know existed? Or perhaps an over-the-top movie about vengeful sharks is more your jam? May the list below be your guide.
Granted, the word “overrated” is subjective, and so there is a chance you believe all of the movies below have received the appropriate amount of appreciation and attention. That’s cool. Opinions about movies are like flatulence: everybody has 'em and they are nothing to be ashamed of. (Well, unless they are really nasty. Then you should probably apologize.)
That being said, I still believe that all of the movies below are worth a watch.
1. 'Afternoon Delight'
2. 'Hearts Beat Loud'
4. 'California Typewriter'
5. 'Sabrina Down Under'
The legendary teenage witch tries to save the mermaids of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Because of course.
6. 'Ice Sharks'
7. 'Planet of the Sharks'
It's Planet of the Apes meets Waterworld... plus sharks. You're welcome.
8. 'The Row'
Lala Kent of Vanderpump Rules is in it. Need I say more?
9. 'Life Partners'
Britta Perry, Blair Waldorf, and Seth Cohen all star in this relatable dramedy about a pair of best friends who grow apart.
10. 'Pizza My Heart'
If you enjoyed 2018’s Little Italy, then Pizza My Heart is sure to cheese, er, please.
12. 'The Phantom'
13. 'Teaching Mrs. Tingle'
Anyone who tells you this dark and bonkers movie isn't worth your time can slither away.
It’s a Disney Channel Original Movie starring Zendaya as teenager who has a very powerful cell phone. A tale as old as time.
15. 'The Year Of Spectacular Men'
Lea Thompson directed it! She stars alongside her daughters Madelyn Deutch and Zoey Deutch!
16. 'Freak Show'
Based on Club Kid James St. James’s novel of the same name, Freak Show is a coming-of-age story about a gay teenager who runs for homecoming queen at his conservative high school.
17. 'Spring Broke'
Not to be confused with scripted crime drama Spring Breakers, Spring Broke is a documentary about Florida's spring break industry.
18. 'Drinking Buddies'
If you missed this dramedy about some folks who work at a brewery when it came out in 2013, then you should definitely check it out now.
19. '2 Days In The Valley'
There's a lot happening in this ensemble crime thriller from the '90s, including Charlize Theron's first feature film role.
21. 'Support The Girls'
What’s this? Another terrific movie that was championed by critics and audiences alike in 2018, but somehow hasn’t been dominating the awards season conversation? This delightful and moving movie deserves all of the appreciation and then some.
So there you have it, Hulu heads. A list of underrated Hulu offerings worth your time. Happy Hulu-ing.
