Home Alone I and II
Old Jackie Chan Movies (drunken master, snake in the eagle's shadow, fist of fury)
Wayne's World I and II
Bill and Ted's I and II
Back to the future trilogy
Star Wars (the entire saga)
Super
Talladega Nights
Ace Ventura I and II
The movie where Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore were with the Red Sox when they won the world series (I forgot the title)
Celtics Pride

Most of these are comedies.

That movie is Fever Pitch.

I laughed so hard at Freddy Got Fingered at all the most shameful and inappropriate cheap laughs, and I don't care who knows.

Not sure if it's a guilty pleasure but whenever Mean Girls is on I watch it from wherever I pick it up until the end.

I thought The Girl Next Door was a piece of garbage, but basically any scene in that movie with Eliza Cuthbert has an unfair hold over me.

People slam Deja Vu for it's inconsistencies and the overall ridiculousness of the "science" involved, but I guess I'm a sucker for most any Denzel movie. I've got the DVD.
TP for Freddie Got Fingered.  That probably should have been the first one on my list.

TP to the OP for this topic.  I had fun thinking about it my whole ride home from work.  I couldn't land on one leader but there are a few movies I'd put on this list.

Obscure/Not highly regarded movies

Fear of a Black Hat - a mockumentary about an up and coming rap group NWH ("****s With Hats").  I probably have watched this movie about 30 times.  A group of about 6 - 8 of my friends love it, and quotes from it still get thrown around at parties,  fantasy football drafts, etc.  Anyone else around has no idea what we are talking about.

The Great White Hype - not very highly regarded in it's day, this movie has always cracked me up and I think it is one of Samuel L. Jackson's best roles.

Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human - movie features Carmen Electra and some random nobody guy actor progressing throw a relationship from dating to pregnancy, but the story is told from the perspective of an alien National Geographic Show.

Movies a lot of people probably wouldn't think I'd love watching over and over

Lost in Translation - I absolutely love this movie, and can pretty much pick it up at any point in the story and keep watching it.  ScarJo was young and super hot, and there is something about the story that just resonates with me.  I also think the ending is perfect.  (spoiler alert) A few of my female friends have vehemently disagreed with me on this, but I like not knowing what they said to each other.  I love that it is left to the imagination.  I was just happy that in the end the elephant in the room was acknowledged, and they had the "moment" they both wanted instead of it ending with a great "what-if".

The Princess Bride - just a fun movie to watch, even years after my childhood when I first saw it.  A light, entertaining chick flick that this guy can watch over and over again.

I came across a clip from that movie once and assumed that it was ****.  Was I wrong?

Don't really watch many movies, but Beerfest for one.

And while not really movies, but I love some of the Comedy Central roasts.  Good for crude, over the top humor.
love Beerfest.  always catch that when Comedy Central puts it in their monthly movie rotation

This is a tough one to admit.... but I find 50 First Dates to be weirdly charming and re-watchable.

I feel a lot better getting that off my chest, thanks OP.

that's definitely my wife's go-to movie along with My Best Friend's Wedding and Love Actually

must admit I think them as well.  Love Actually was pretty underrated IMHO

  • Be the posts you wish to see in the world.
Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion is a surprisingly solid comedy.

I also used to love Pump up the Volume, but you may have to be a disaffected high school student the first couple times you see it.

...oh yeah, and Dirty Work with Norm MacDonald.  It's a crappy movie wrapped around a couple dozen comedic gems.

Kung Pow: Enter the Fist, Dodgeball.  I love Talledega Nights but I actually thought it was an excellent movie!  If we can count that movie then I'm going to add all the Naked Guns, Spy Hard, and Wrongfully Accused.

Kung Pow is the ultimate "Love it or hate it" movie.  I think it is fantastic, but I have friends that had to shut it off before it was finished. 

Two other comedies that got horrendous reviews that I think are really funny are Deuce Bigalow and Deuce Bigalow 2.

Ghost Rider is 100% a guilty pleasure movie. It's the 'riding a moped' of superhero movies.
