More Movies You Might Not Know

It's been awhile since I've added anything to the Movies You Might Not Know list, so here are three more:

  • In My Bodyguard, Chris Makepeace is having trouble with school bully Matt Dillon, so he gets big loner Adam Baldwin to stand up for him. That sounds dumb, but the movie's actually wonderful, plus it includes Martin Mull, Ruth Gordon, and John Houseman
  • Mystic Pizza is one of those small movies where everyone noticed some rising stars in the cast, particularly Julie Roberts, plus Annabeth Gish and Vincent D'Onofrio
  • Bob Roberts is a cynical, folk-singing, manipulative politician at the heart of a wicked satire on the American electoral process, written and directed by its star, Tim Robbins
