Could be a bad movie that you love....a chick flick that brings a tear to your eye....a politically incorrect film....a movie with a sex scene that gets you worked up. Name five movies for which you'd rather not admit your affection. Here's mine:

1) Pride and Prejudice (the recent version with Kiera Knightley)
2) Animal House
3) Air Force One
4) The Sound of Music
5) Trading Places

All of the "Movie" movies. You know, Scary Movie, Not Another Teen Movie, Date Movie, Epic Movie, Superhero Movie etcetera. I love these crude, rude, stupid yet oh so funny movies and can't get enough of them.

Dirty Dancing - watch whenever it's on tv
Pride and Prejudice (with Colin Firth) - have the DVD, so watch whenever nothing else is on tv

My guilty pleasure? Let me think...

It would have to involve a copy of "Young Frankenstein", a couple gallons extra-virgin olive oil, saran wrap, a wading pool, three Victoria's Secret models (any three will do) some pomegranates, a Hitachi Magic Wand, a package of Voortman's vanilla wafers and a DeWalt random orbit sander.

In a pinch, we can do without the "Young Frankenstein".

I have a guilty pleasure about liking The Night the Lights Went out in Georgia, with Kristy McNichol, Dennis Quaid, and Mark Hamill (and Don Stroud as one really mean good old boy). Low budget 70s rural South movie, but enjoyable IMO. And I like Fishing with Gandhi, and Bubba Hotep (Bruce Campbell as old Elvis) with one of the great endings in cinema history.

Its eerie how closely DL's guilty pleasures match mine. I think the only major differences are that instead of pomegranates, I prefer chocolate covered bananas, and in place of 'Young Frankenstein', I prefer 'Meatballs'.

Any Roger Corman - Edgar Allan Poe movie, but particularly
The Masque Of The Red Death,
The Raven, &
The Pit and the Pendulum (where's the Blu-Ray box set?)
and really really bad Italian and Mexican Vampire movies.

Yes, the Corman Poe/Lovecraft flicks with Vincent Price! Good choice there. All the fog, thunder, crypts, passageways, negligees, mutants, and cobwebs. It's candy for my soul.

Wait. Did I see "Young Frankenstein" mentioned in a thread about guilty pleasures? Wow. That's a brilliant and beloved movie. One of (if not the) funniest.

Some of my secret loves would include:

"Valley of the Dolls"
William Castle's "Strait Jacket" (interchangeable with "Mr. Sardonicus", or "Homicidal")
"The Glass Bottom Boat" with Doris Day
"The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh"
"Big Business" with Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin

Another one just came to mind. "Flowers in the Attic". Pure crud, but I'd watch that again.

Yes! Big Business with Lily Tomlin and Bette Midler came out the exact same year as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, 1988, yet, while everyone still talks about Dirty Rotten scoundrels, you rarely hear much discussion about Big Business? It's a great movie that we used to love watching back in the day. I really need to revisit that one again sometime soon.

It's just a fluffy Disney/Touchstone family film but we like it very much. Maybe it's so good because of the two stars headlining it, or because it's not heavily dated (in the writing) like some movies were. It just works. I love the fact that each sister is so different from her twin.
