I'm scratching my head at what some of you consider guilty pleasures, but whatever. Though I'm scratching my head at some I'll be listing since I think they're awesome.

Here are some of mine:

Teen Wolf Too
Ski School 1 and 2
If Looks Could Kill
Gymkata
Howard the Duck
The Secret of My Succe$s
Beverly Hills Ninja
Airborne
A Low Down Dirty Shame
Commando
Cobra
Spaceballs
Bye Bye Love
Coming to America
íThree Amigos!
Big Trouble in Little China
Kindergarten Cop
Weekend at Bernie's 1 and 2
Encino Man
Son in Law
Waterworld
Drop Dead Fred (May he RIP)
Over the Top
Masters of the Universe
Black Sheep
Toy Soldiers
House II
The Beastmaster
Mannequin: On the Move
Darkman
The Last Dragon
Batman Forever
Batman & Robin
18 Again!
Next of Kin
Out to Sea

Going to stop there, have too many and can go on for the rest of the day, plus I don't consider many of these guilty at all, but I guess they fit once one gets down to it.

"Drop Dead Gorgeous". The cast is stacked which you wouldn't assume considering the plot - Kirsten Dunst, Denise Richards, Brittany Murphy, Allison Janney and Amy Adams.

All of the over the top beauty pageant scenes, all of the bad Minnesota accents. It's gold.
  no pun intended ;)

What I was going for in terms of 'guilty pleasures' when I created the topic were movies you know are pretty bad or that no one likes but you watch them all the same. 

based on this list, a lot of these films qualify.   8)

I know many/most do :)

But then I go through other mentions, like Star Wars, The Incredibles, The Princess Bride, Back to the Future, Home Alone, Superbad, Naked Gun, Rudy, Rocky II, Bloodsport, Ace Ventura... and I just have to scratch my head to some degree. Or maybe there's a lack of awareness of how many people actually think these movies are a very good watch.

Though I guess one can argue that the perception of geekness in some of these, despite being good, makes it a guilty pleasure in that regard.

Definately Roll Bounce and True Lies....everytime these movies come on...I have to watch...

Watched true lies at midnight at a theartre the first day it cameout.

I thought it was going to be dumb. Man was i wrong. It was a blast. I still remember arnold wanting the horse to jump off the building but it didnt Lol.  Also the filming error(run out of battery) by one of the terrorist scene was hilarious

hadn't thought of it that way but that does make sense.  there's number of previous mentions I don't consider bad movies.  of course, they also match up to a lot of movies I like

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

Rt scores are so dumb in my opinion.

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

I'm not into romcoms but thought Love Actually was ok until the walking dead guy betrayed his best friend.

Roadhouse
The best of the best
Starship troopers ( intentionally campy though)
Catwoman is seriously the funniest worst movie I've ever seen. Every single scene is so stupid that it's funny. I could watch the basketball scene on repeat its just so bad.
