Last Action Heroes was pretty cool as well!

I wouldn't say that i love it, but i did enjoy Notting Hill perhaps a little more then i should have... not that i was knocking one out or anything...

I really like some very old sci-fi stuff too, not that i'm a fan of the genre now... i Like the 'Quatermass' films and have quite a fondness for 'Destination moon base alpha' and also films like 'them'...

this is kind of odd because i really have no time for Star trek or Star Wars... I expect to be B4nned again for that one...

you can do it wherever you like... although i think my embarrassment at enjoying this film will come as no revelation given the title of the thread... abuse away... :wink:

Dunno if I mentioned this one, but "Class Act" with Kid and Play. And a cameo by Pauly Shore.

Speaking of that, "Jury Duty" was an interesting comedy remake of "Twelve Angry Men"...

I didn't think I'd post in this thread- because usually I'm not too embarassed about the things I like - but yesterday I watched BIG with Tom Hanks- and I did feel a little embarassed about liking it, because it's so goody-goody predictable.

But Tom Hanks being all childish just made me smile a lot, I couldn't help it.

Even though it was a real bomb at the box office, I found RV to be rather amusing. I do own it.

I didn't see this - although it sounds like it could be kind of amusing, really.


But it makes me think of Faith No More's song RV -do you know it? It has great lyrics - Mike Patton mumbling things like "Yeah, I sweat alot" , "Would anyone tell me if I was getting any stupider" and "Talking to myself -everybody's staring at me".

Yeah, check it out, it's funny. Never heard of that tune. Sounds like it should be on the RV soundtrack though. ;)

I'm embarrassed that people are embarrassed to love some of these movies!

Clueless, Zoolander, Labyrinth, Grease, Hackers, Short Circuit, The Fifth Element: there is no shame!

Especially not in Hackers.

Hack the Planet!

Cereal Killer!

Crash and Burn!

I am, however, a little embarrassed to thoroughly enjoy "The Sweetest Thing" :oops:

Though it MUST be watched with Milla's and Michelle Rodriguez' commentary, they are not only funny as hell, they're gaming geeks.

I mentioned in another thread that I really kind of liked "Funny Farm".


Another guilty pleasure of mine would have to be "Dude Where's My Car". And no, I wasn't high at the time when I saw it. ;)

My roomie loves Funny Farm. I've never seen it all the way through, but it's often on TV, so I hear it from my office.

It's not terrible. What's the problem?

I still don't think a lot of people consider it one of Chevy Chase's best films or even close to it.


As for another non-Chevy movie... has anyone else mentioned "Twister"?
Yes, it's totally ridiculous but everytime it's on tv I find myself still watching it.

Exactly, how can you hate such a film?

It also has the worst military mission in history, which my brother and me giggle through. Basically involves Guile making no attempt to stealthily grab the hostages.

Why? The only reason he broke in was so they would get killed for bad acting. ;)


And that Flash kick......oh my God!

I'm now changing my opinion. It's not embarrassing to watch Streetfighter, I want to watch it again.

Oh crap, where to even begin...

I dig old school, studio musicals, perhaps a little too much. The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof, The King and I, Wizard of OZ.

Also, I really dig the shit out of She-Ra, Jem and the Holograms, and the Ewok adventures (LA). Oh, and my wife just reminded me that I love the Babe movies. I can jump at pretty much any family fare film...with the exception of Bridge to Terribillia, I hate that fucking movie.

The first one from the top of my head is Sam Raimis Crimewave.
I watched it at the weekend with my gf and she just thought WTF am i being made to watch here? Its absolutely ridiculous, but I love it and still laugh all the way thru. For my troubles I got a pat on the shoulder and a long drawn out "O-Kayyyyy."

On second thoughts, she has the problem, I mean whats not to love about Bruce Campbell playing a heel that triggers gun shot sounds when he smiles?

RU-FI-OOOOOOOOOOOOO

I love that movie too.

And I'm not embarrassed either.

I always loved the scene when they imagine the feast and everything looks like bowlfuls of frosting! When I was a kid I thought it looked like the most delicious food in the world...
...now, not so much. But I still love the movie!

I really liked Hook too.

Suprisingly it's probably one of Robin William's more subdued roles even thought he's playing Peter Pan. ;)

I really loved every scene between Dustin Hoffman and Bob Hoskins too.
