No, this is not a topic about p0rn.

Thought I'd throw this out there as a discussion topic while we wait for the next season to get here.

What movies do you feel a guilty pleasure in enjoying?  Movies that you know are pretty bad or just way outside what people would expect you to like but you don't care what critics/friends/family say.  Movies that you'll watch over and over again whenever they come on TV (or that you pop into a DVD player).

For me, I think mine would be
- Happy Gilmore
- The Waterboy
- Hollywood Nights (with a young Tony Danza, Michele Pfeiffer and Robert Wuhl)
- Used Cars (Kurt Russell in prime form)

there are others I really go to over and over again but none of them get the wife's eyeroll like these do.

How about anyone else?

Zoolander and Uncle Buck both get 64% on Rotten Tomatoes, not sure if that qualifies.  There are also the mid 2000s trio of Grandma's Boy, Hamlet 2 and Hot Rod that are all really solid if not particularly intelligent

Whenever the Sweetest Thing with Cameron Diaz and Christina Applegate comes on TV (which is a lot strangely enough) I have to watch it.

Party Monster (Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green)
You Got Served
Rad

The last being my favorite movie of all time. For people who know the movie (like, really know), they totally understand - otherwise I just come off crazy.

the BMX movie?
At least a goldfish with a Lincoln Log on its back goin' across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous connotation to it.

Yes, definitely. The 1986 classic starring Bill Allen, Lori Loughlin (Becky from Full House), and Bart Connor (the gymnast. It really is that good  ;D

For some reason I've always had a soft spot for that ridiculous Fast + Furious knockoff, Torque.

And I love Mystery Science Theater 3000, but that doesn't really count.  I guess old Godzilla movies?

Beat me to it.

Is it wrong to be excited for Pitch Perfect 2?

Add Sharknado here too. That thing is hilarious!

Pretty much anything made between 1980 and 1989. 

Watched Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure last night on NetFlix as a matter of fact.  (Way better than the Monday night games)

I don't feel guilty about any of my pleasures.
