25 Movies That Are Way Better Than They Should Be

25 Movies That Are Way Better Than They Should Be

Don’t tell the critics, but it’s really not that hard to figure out if a movie is going to be good. As long as nobody gets too far up their own ass, a visionary director, competent screenwriter, talented cast and crew and a sufficient budget are probably going to add up to something watchable. On the flip side, the alarm bells that indicate you’re going to have an extremely medium time ring just as loud.

But sometimes, they’re wrong. A movie that has all the ingredients of a turd manages to polish itself up, coat itself in essential oils and present itself to you as smooth and fragrant as a rose petal. Again, one made of turds, but definitely a lot more appealing than a straight-up turd bucket. So when user Casca_In_Red asked r/AskReddit, “What movie was better than it had any right to be?,” Reddit fondly recalled all of its favorite piles of pretty turds.
