I don't care for Andrew Lloyd Webber, but I do like some of the music from Evita. I've never seen the Madonna movie, but I saw the musical on stage once in the early 80's.

Oh, my husband is a non-Christian tending towards paganism, and this is one of the only musicals he likes and owns the soundtrack to--the other being Fiddler on the Roof. And 1776, he loves 1776

Now those of you picking Rob Schneider and Pauly Shore movies--you know what bad movies are! I can watch Deuce Bigalo, Male Gigolo and think it was a bad movie, but still have a soft spot for it.

In general though, if I really like a movie, I don't think of it as a bad movie. Bad movies are usually the ones that have no redeeming value whatsoever. There are some movies that I love that are not particularly well regarded, however.
  • Independence Day (ID4)
  • My Fellow Americans (or grumpy old Presidents, as we call it)
  • Grease 2

I need to hang out with your dh, since he is probably one of the few people on the planet who also knows the words to all the songs in that movie.

I drive my kids nuts when we watch it. For years, pre-VCRs, I had only the soundtrack, so I know the songs quite well.

As for me:

Big Trouble in Little China has got to be at the top of the list. Then, let's see...

The Rock with Nicholas Cage, Ed Harris and Sean Connery. "Carla was the prom queen!" (I downloaded it to my iPod

Sleepless in Seattle is a very secret guilty pleasure of mine

Oh my goodness I LOVE TOMBSTONE! I have seen it at least 50 times. I am not ashamed!

I also LOVE LOVE Thirteen Going on Thirty! I really want to buy the DVD so I can watch it whenever I want to.

Also loved an Indie movie with Christina Ricci called Pumpkin. I made several of my friends and my DP watch it and apparently it's horrible.

Me too. Some guilty pleasures of mine:

Day After Tomorrow
Twister
Armageddon
Night of the Comet : : (I have to double bag this one)

Oh, and you didn't mention epidemic movies like 28 Days Later, Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, and Shaun of the Dead, but I love those too.

Really? Evita is considered a bad movie? Other than the fact that Madonna's pronunciation of "Buenos Aires" totally grates on my ears, I love that one! But I have absolutely no taste, as you are about to see...

I'm somewhat of a fan of what is quite possibly the worst movie EVER. No redeeming value at all. The acting is bad, the dialouge is bad, there's some rather disturbing violence...it's....








Showgirls.: I haven't watched it in a couple years, but we DO have it on DVD. The collectors edition, rated NC-17, with the shot glasses and "pin the pasties on the showgirl" game.

I'm never going to be allowed to post on MDC again, am i?

OK, I've seen some of my favorites listed already: Armageddon, 10 Things I Hate About You (I was Cat in highschool, drove a faded red 1974 Dart Sport and didn't give a &*^$& about anyone), Bring It On, the original Highlander movie, anything sci-fi/disaster and of course The Breakfast Club but I have a few others to list.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer with Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland and Rutger Hauer - pure camp

Varsity Blues - who doesn't love a teacher/stripper and of course Tweeter's butt

and one of my all time favorite movies ever - Ladyhawk with Michelle Pfeiffer, Rutger Hauer and Matthew Broderick. I love the plot but sometimes the cheesy 80's music starts to get to me when I'm watching it. Has anyone ever seen this movie??

Of course, for a while we even had it on VHS.

My dad LOVES it, but I couldn't ever get all the way through it.

How could I forget Ladyhawke?! I love it, isn't the music great?! LOL!

Johnny Depp was utterly yummy in it. Myself and my best friend are both huge fans of this movie and spent our teen years singing along to it. Of course, we also spent every Friday night taking part in the Rocky Horror Picture Show :

and psst - I have the Titanic collectors edition too
