    Okay, I'm sure everyone here has seen their fair share of bad movies.  However, what BAD movies have you seen, that you KNOW are bad, but you still love them anyway for some unknown reason.  Name your top ten if you can. If not, just name whatever movies that pop into your head that you know are bad movies, but you enjoy them anyway; hence the term GUILTY PLEASURES!  big_smile

      Howard the Duck is an awesomely bad film. I actually paid to see it in a theatre in 1986. Judging from its famously meager box office take I must be one of only a few dozen people who can make that claim. big_smile

      1. Stevennix2001 profile image88
        Stevennix2001posted 6 years agoin reply to this

        That's cool.  You're very lucky then. I think I didn't see Howard the Duck until I was like 10 or 9 years old, and that like a few years after it's release.  Although, I do like the movie, but even I can't ignore how bad it is as a film.  However, it's still very entertaining if you ask me.  Besides, what other movie is going to show you animorphic duck fighting some weird scorpion like alien entity that possesses god-like powers; while hooking up with a cute rock girl. lollol

      i agree with like all of yours Stevennix lol. if your as big of a fan of DBZ as i think you are, you should check out TeamFourStar Dragon Ball Z Abridged series on Youtube. its one big parity and absolutely hysterical. i quote it like everyday...and sadly many people don't get the jokes lol

      1. Stevennix2001 profile image88
        Stevennix2001posted 6 years agoin reply to this

        Oh okay.  I'll definitely be sure to check it out then Nickalooch.  Thanks for the heads up. I think I've seen the abridged episodes of Dragonball GT before, but I don't think I've seen them for the other series.  However, I'll definitely be sure to check it out.  Thanks buddy. smile

    a few come to mind that qualify as "BAD",... those little flicks that didnt find thier audience as they say,.... but i will stop in my tracks EVERY time i find them while chanel surfing,...

    a person just loves some of them,... i guess because some one has to,...

    i will scream down the length of my house anuncing that "i'm popping popcorn, theres a horible great movie on",.... and its game on

    tremors,... kevin bacon,... yea,... so cheesey is smelled like it,... but sooooo much fun.

    harley davidson and the marlboro man,.... don johnson, mickey roark,.... just horible,... but i'll watch it every time

    maximum overdrive,.... a young emilio estevez,... horibly done, horibly acted movie,... there arent enough derogatory terms to convey how terible this movie was,... but i'm hooked,... and the sound track didnt hurt

    hudson hawk.... bruce willis,.... laughing my ass off all the way,... popcorn flying outa my mouth,.... listening to her scream/sing "i've ot the power"

    you know i'm gona have to go home and watch these now,.... yes,... i have them on DVD,.. i'm bad.

    Galaxy Quest

    I love rom-coms on Lifetime, some of them are sweet so I don't care what anyone thinks.

    In terms of actual big screen movies I guess this is a tentative list

    Good Burger
    A Night at the Roxbury
    The Wedding Planner
    Maid in Manhattan
    Stepmom

    That's all I can think of for now, but that's embarrassing enough

    I love some "bad" movies, but they can't really be bad if they entertain and make a person happy... right? ^_^

    Clueless (A rich girl who is stuck up, nothing new there.)
    Matilda (It was a great movie until she got her powers, then she got a bit lazy with her ideas and it wasn't as funny as the beginning like when she glued her father's hat to his head.)
    Casper (Enough said)
    Series of Unfortunate Events (Vaguely like the books, which was a huge disappointment)
    Benchwarmers (Comical insults funny to an extent but a bit creepy after a while)
    Good Burger (I could watch this movie everyday...)
    George of the Jungle
    Lady killers
    Great Gatsby (an awesome story but poorly acted out)
    Tommy Boy (Awesome to watch, but it really was a horrible story but it was done so well that I couldn't help but enjoy it. If any other actors had done it, it would have been a massive flop.)

    1. emichael profile image75
      emichaelposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Yes! I thought I'd be the only one to put George of the Jungle smile

      Casper is another one of mine I forgot to put.

      The 13th Warrior isn't a guilty pleasure, it's just a great movie.  My suggestion is to tell everyone you know about it, because they'll enjoy this little known film as well.
