Favourite Guilty Pleasure Films

Recommended Posts

What are everybody’s favourite guilty pleasure movies? Not necessarily  bad movies, but movies that you enjoy despite plot elements, performances and/or scenes/moments that others might describe as silly or frivolous.

I don't particularly agree with "guilty pleasures" as I don't feel guilty for liking anything that I enjoy.  However, falling under the definition you provided above, I love:

Clue

The Brady Bunch Movie

A Very Brady Sequel

UHF

Big Trouble in Little China

Roadhouse

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Cocktail

Flashdance

The Legend of Billie Jean

Barbarella

Love Actually

Overboard (1987)

She's All That

Weekend at Bernies

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

Gremlins

Dirty Dancing

So I Married an Axe Murderer

Xanadu

Roller Boogie

 

Probably a third of my movie collection is comprised of so-called guilty pleasures.  If there are sub-genres that I love it's the following: 80s-90s teen sex comedies, 50s-60s teen beach movies, ladies in prison, movies that feature a lot of dancing, but aren't necessarily musicals (a la Dirty Dancing, Flashdance, Footloose),  roller disco films, anything involving some type of makeover... 

But I don't feel guilty about loving any of it.  All films are proudly displayed.

I was coming into this thread to say Cocktail. It has awful reviews, but I’ve always enjoyed watching it.

I love Cocktail! Except for that one bummer part towards the end of the film.  Otherwise it's a lot of fun.
