Get Inspired with Our Definitive Ranking of Movies About Outcasts Overcoming the Odds
Work It is just the latest in a long line of teen movies about outcasts and underdogs striving for something great. The movie, which debuted on Netflix in August, follows some familiar territory, contrasting a group of creative misfits with a more traditional, well-trained rival. There's nothing we love as much as a good underdog story. After all, chances are we were all misfits once, and there's something so heartwarming and reassuring about watching a group of people who don't quite fit in for some reason achieve greatness and prove the naysayers wrong.
Just because the genre itself is fun, though, doesn't mean every entry in it is great cinema. Ahead, we're looking at all the underdog and outcast movies from the past several years — see which ones we loved and which ones didn't quite make it to the top.
