I'm watching one of mine right now, which inspired me to start this thread. "Quigley Down Under," starring Tom Selleck.

"Forrest Hump", but there really isn't much sleeping in it. :alchi:

I guess it's a sleeper... Slingblade.

Sleepless in Seattle... though I believe the title is a bit mis-leading... I was out like a light after the first 15 minutes. ;)

Pushing Tin (http://imdb.com/title/tt0120797/)

It's got everything you could possibly ever want:

- Cusack
- Billy Bob
- (most importantly) Angelina Jolie, naked.

On that note... Monster's Ball(s) and Mr. Holland's Opus were great.

If you want a true box office sleeper it's "ET". Many may not remember when it first released, no one expected it to do well but it became a movie icon.

Trivia quip: how many know that Drew Barrymore played the little sister?

My brothers have invented a new Genre they dubbed "Tony movies" after being forced to watch my sleeper movies one too many times.

Some faves include:

Bubba Ho-Tep
Storm Riders

Die Hard. No one saw that coming and it made Bruce.

Matrix. That was a surprise to many.

Office Space. Ya, um, I'm going to have to ask you to agree.

Pulp Fiction, maybe. No one really expected anything from Travolta and it brought his career back from the dead.
