These great moments deserve more love than they get.

Breaking news!

A recent study has confirmed the long standing theory that there are, in fact, a lot of movies out there. Some say the figure could be as high as ten!

Jokes aside, there is a multitude of incredible films to watch and, with streaming services offering up everything we could ever want on a silver platter, it's easy for great movies and moments to get lost in the shuffle.

This is a travesty, as there are thousands of incredible scenes in movies that people haven't seen because they wanted to watch Captain America for the fifteenth time.

Better action sequences than Die Hard, funnier moments than Step Brothers, more emotional deaths than Marley and Me! Ok, that last one is a bit of hyperbole. Nothing is sadder than when that dog goes to the vet one last time. What a good boy.

Anyway, these ten scenes are all criminally under-represented in wider cinema discussion and we thought it was high time that somebody gave them a shoutout.

There are certainly more than just these scene that are underrated, but this is a pretty good place to start.

10. We're On The Radio! - That Thing You Do!

The directing debut of one Mr. Tom Hanks, That Thing You Do! is about The Wonders, a small-time 60s pop group who have a hit with a song called, well, That Thing You Do!

The movie was very well-liked upon its release and the song even bagged itself an Oscar nomination. The scene we're talking about is when the band first hear their work on the radio.

Liv Tyler's character, Faye, hears the song being played and goes absolutely ballistic. Not only does she almost forget to post her letters, but she begins screaming wildly with joy before running off to tell the band the good news.

Faye collects the various members on her screeching journey, disturbing the peace at an electrical store. The elated musicians and their friends tune every single radio set in the shop to the station playing their song as they dance around like maniacs.

The scene is joy personified and perfectly captures the unbridled happiness felt when hard work finally pays off. As the film's events unfold, this scene becomes bittersweet in retrospect. However, at the time, it was great to just sit back and watch the frenzy.
