Sometimes low expectations can pay off. Sometimes, you expect a movie to be kind of terrible, and it surprises you by being actually quite good. Sometimes, a movie looks dumb, but turns out to be charming and fun. Which movie did you expect to suck — and then were pleasantly surprised?

Please include a picture, poster, trailer or clip for your chosen movie. And please mention the name, and why you were pleasantly surprised.
