I saw a clip from my favorite bad movie today. It's Evita, starring Madonna. Nobody in their right mind likes that movie. When I saw it in the theater, 80% of the audience was asleep before "Don't Cry for Me Argentina". But not me. I was sitting there dabbing away tears, watching Madonna play a fascist in an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.

So, what's your favorite awful movie? What's the one you won't watch with anyone in the room, or never bring up to your "smart" friends? I gotta know

Are you kidding about Evita? Everyone I knew that saw it loved it and saw it more than once.

Well, I guess sticking with Weber I'd have to say "Jesus Christ Superstar". And I am a pagan. I just love the music and the dancing hippies so much.

I love Evita AND Jesus Christ Superstar. I don't consider them bad movies - everyone I know loves Evita! (not so much JCS). I own them both Of course, I also love all things Highlander - and I'll admit that with the exception of the first movie, these aren't great movies/shows

But...but I LOVE Evita. I've always thought it was the only good Madonna movie! I even have the soundtrack and it makes me teary.

There are tons of bad movies that I love...but I can't think of them right now. Ok, reading through the answers and you guys are seriously making me feel like I have terrible taste. Just don't tell dh, I don't want him to know he was right. But even he loves Armageddon, come on? What about the part where that guy rides the bomb.

Ah but Bring It On has Eliza Dushku so it gets a pass in our house

The riding the bomb part of Armageddon is hilarious. Gotta love Steve Buscemi. Love the move, even with all its schmaltz.

Bring It On was awesome! Loved that movie.


And my all time favorite bad movie is Valley Girl. Like OH MY GOD, Nicholas Cage could take me in the bathroom stall anytime.

Frugal, food growing mama to my four loves

My husband makes fun of me because I love all those cheesy over-the-top environmental disaster movies. The asteroids, earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes, super-storm, ice-age-coming type of movies. If they have to travel to the center of the earth or to outer space to save all of humanity, all the better. :

And my son used to be obsessed with the Godzilla movies. I'm pretty sure he has every one ever made packed away somewhere.

How dare you say "even" enjoyed?! That is one of my favorites! Who doesn't love walking by the Statue of Liberty because the New York harbor has frozen over?

I'm with ya ... going to see that movie was my 10th birthday present. I thought it was *so* cool then ... now I still enjoy it, while I recognize the "razzie" quality.

Did ya know it's on Broadway now?

There is something special about frozen New York. But I particularly enjoyed the huge wave obliterating it all.

Ok, i can go even worse.


I religiously watched The Stand every week when it reran over here recently

Great, now I have a miniseries I might need to see! Is it horror? Because I don't do horror. But, a plague wiping out 2/3 of the earth's inhabitants sounds like good viewing to me.

(Don't worry, I'm not this jaded in real life. I don't really want a tsunami to wipe out New York or anything. I just kind of like to watch Mama Earth giving us humans a little something back after our centuries of abusing her. Only on film, though. No humans or cityscapes were harmed during the viewing of my cheesy movies.)
