    21 Underappreciated Scenes That Were Actually The Best Part Of Movies

    Lillian's wedding dress scene in Bridesmaids was nowhere near as interesting as when she went missing IMO.

    We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which scenes from popular TV shows and movies were unfairly ignored. There were so many great movie responses that we had to give them their very own list!

    1. When Tamatoa sang "Shiny" in Moana.

    "This tune was seriously under-appreciated!"

    "Yes, she's probably better-known for THAT street scene in Bridesmaids, but I thought Lillian's mini-breakdown was really relatable. It proved that even the friend who seems to have their life together feels overwhelmed sometimes!"

    "It showed off her skills as a strategist, and it was the first time Nick's mother respected her. It also mirrored the first scene where she was playing poker."

    "People always focus on the Rey/Kylo or Rey/Luke scenes, but the dialogue in this scene was magical. I love that it hints at Luke’s being a projection, and the way it called back to Anakin and Obi Wan’s dialogue from Revenge of the Sith was brilliant."

    8. The "From Now On" number in The Greatest Showman.
