The 10 Most Underrated Disney Channel Movies

#1'Motocrossed' (2001)

Motocrossed was a badass story about breaking gender norms. It centers on Andrea, a motocross fanatic who has to watch her twin brother race from the sidelines because, according to her dad, she's "just a girl." When her brother gets an injury that takes him out of the races, Andrea and her mom develop a plan to have her secretly race (and win!) among the boys. Through it all, Andrea even gets the boy. 

Fun fact: Motocrossed is also a loose adaptation of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. This DCOM wins for its progressive themes and for honoring classic literature. –Jeff Benjamin
