Yay! So happy! I never started a thread either so Yay!!!

Hmmmmm... pondering - what is your guiltiest secret film enjoyment that you are embarassed to admit that you enjoyed? ...and why?

Mine is 'Independence Day' - I saw it when it first came out and was impressed by the special effects, and I have to admit I was a huge fan of Brent Spiner from 'Star Trek:TNG' at the time and enjoyed his performance - however I fell in love with this gorgeous actor who was about the only one not to go over the top with his performance and who looked drop dead gorgeous in his blue Air Force uniform... Adam Baldwin... I have seen this move more times than I care to admit! ... although maybe I have a darker secret than that... coz everyone will forgive me for drooling over Jayne.. er I mean Major Mitchell.. oh Adam! ... won't they?

Hey, Independence Day isn't bad! Of course, I love Will Smith without bias, so...
Um, I can't think of a movie I watch that makes me blush when I think of someone finding out about it.
I'm not a big movie person, though. Don't see many of them (except when I was dating a movie geek) and certainly don't buy that many to watch over and over. I will say that I'm a huge sucker for the Disney films of my youth. The Aristocats and Aladdin and the Lion King and them. They crack me up!

Armageddon I know it's silly, but it's fun! I laugh every time I watch it.

And, erm... well... *coughsteelmagnoliascough*

Now to distract you - my worst first date movie ever, and not the guy's fault. We decided on the traditional movie and dinner theme. I *think* we were going to see a star wars prequel, but it was booked out. So, we had a look at the different movies available, hummed and hawed for a bit, and eventually went for one that we assumed was a romantic comedy.

It was called The Secretary. And, well, I can't find a reference on IMDB, but it was... sort of... well, the movie was an exploration of sexual dominance and submission. Kinda. Very arty. Not a first date movie. I *really* should have figured out something was up when it was over 18's.

I'm embarrassed by the number of time's I've watched Miss Congeniality, I like Sandra Bullock, though I'm not sure why.

Worst first date movie mistake was 'forever young' with Mel Gibson, (I was mildly fond of him at the time,) it was too soppy for a first date (actually it was too soppy for anything, I've never wanted to see it again) and I think we were both horribly uncomfortable at the end.

Wasn't a total disaster though, I'm married to the bloke I went to see it with. :)

Yeah, Magda, on starting a thread.

I prefer foreign films (please don't tell my friends I like Mallrats). I do like romantic comedies (please don't tell my friends I like Mallrats), an occasional mystery (please don't tell my friends I like Mallrats), musicals (please don't tell my friends I like Mallrats), and some documentaries (please don't tell my friends I like Mallrats).

I'm way too old to think that Kevin Smith is funny, but I do!

Worst first date movie - The Crying Game. Do I need to say why?

Morning, Everyone.
Well, I can breathe again. The Philly container I was stressing over a few days ago was received at the warehouse this morning, and the load is intact. The seal was broken at port to inspect it (and yes, they found contraband - a case of champagne for my boss!) and I was sooo worried some nasty thug would steal $50 k worth Italian leather sofas. Whew! Didn't happen.

In terms of movies, my guilty pleasure is Time Bandits. I just love that stupid movie! I'll watch it whenever it is on.

Steel Magnolias is not one of my favorites. I saw that movie for the first time a few weeks after I was diagnosed with kidney disease and it scared the crap out of me!

"No power in the 'verse can stop me!"


Hello wonderful people!!

Well for an idea off the top of my head you guys went with it and have meade me laugh so much!

I went to bed for 10 mins and woke up three-and-a-half housrs later - and guess what's on TV that I have never ever seen??? A Knights Tale??? There's Wash!! ...I mean Alan Tudyk!! So I imagine I will enjoy that - for all the right resons of course!

So ... the Crying Game? I went to see that with my Dad & he was more embarrassed than I was - to be sure!

There is an Australian film calle 'Monkey Grip which was released in the mid-late 1980s - it starred a Play School presenter, Noni Hazeljurst & Colin Friels - and involved many explicit sex scenes - which since I was just 18 at the time were pretty educational - but my 16-year-old sister and I were wishing the ground would open up and swallow us!

Thank you dear Penguin! I will look that one up because I am a huge Mark Harmon fan - used to lovwe St Elsewhere in the 80s and never have got over him! (...ooops - did I write that - Out loud?)

EDIT: Ah the joy of postal-overlap! Hello dear Mav - I am so glad that your containerly woes are behind you! And... yes as a *cough* ...fan... of Steel Magnolia's I do think you would not enjoy it! I love the accents though! (I'd love to do the play one day - though I suspect I am looking at a different role to the one I used to covet!)

Oh, coffee is the stuff of life...and fresh-ground in our office by lil ol me!

Knights Tale has to be my guilty pleasure movie, too. Generally, I am a stickler for historical accuracy in movies (Gladiator made me twitch numerous times), so I was fully expecting to be disappointed by this one...and I was. But. But, when the first thing I heard was Queen music during the first joust, I decided to suspend belief and just enjoy it...and I really did. So, yes, that is my guilty pleasure movie.

This thread is ours, which means anyone should be able to start a new thread if the old one gets too long. Makes me happy that people wnat to keep it going!

Morning all!

Guilty pleasure move.... Pretty much any Horror movie I guess. But my guilty pleasure horror would have to be Jason X. It came out about 5 years ago and I laughed so hard through the entire move! Ther is this scene where Jason is walking through a "Hollow Suite" and it is just the funniest thing ever written.

Also there is no shame in liking Mallrats! All hail Kevin Smith (To a lesser degree than Joss of course)!

Hi Kelkhil! I have another guilty pleasure now that you remind me of it - the Scream trilogy - they are so funny/scary! Silly things but my best friend is too scared to watch them... I like the humour!

And I too disliked 'Gladiator', never saw what all the fuss was about... but I am enjoying A Knights Tale for all the same reasons - it is not supposed to be taken seriously and it is really corney at times, but I'm enjoying many of the comic aspects... it's just when a film wants to be taken seriously and it sucks that I can't stand it!

...Heath Ledger would apprear to have a skinny, hairless chest though... bit disappointing that...

(Not that I care if any of my FFmen have skinny &/or hairless chests - just that someone with Heath Ledgers voice shouldn't look quite so 'adolescent' when he takes off his shirt...

Edit: that was... 'enlightening' Mei Mei... thanks for the link! James Spader... oh, of course - he's a wicked boy!

Afternoon from the UK, fellow browncoats (it's 3:11pm over here)! To my chagrin, I will admit that I don't post much on the FFF.net forums so I thought I'd make a start right here.

My guilty pleasure movie would have to be either the aforementioned Knight's Tale or the fantastic Spirited Away. In my circle of friends, Japanese animations in general are seen as this weird, almost alien, art form which is basically abnormal. From some anime I've encountered in the past, I can see why this would be so. But, this gorgeous little film has kinda opened my mind to the whole genre. The artwork is phenomenal, the characters are relatable, the script is a little naive for my liking, but it's a PG, so I'll let Miyasaki off. It's just one of those films that, if you can suspend cynicism for a while, just makes you feel better about the world...and in my view, we all need a film like that.

Hello INeverMarried! - what part of the UK are you from? It's 12.30am on Saturday here folks (Yes - hello from tomorrow Tristan!!) and I am watching A Kinights Tale as I type this - "Oh No! They've found out he's not really who he says he is!!" (...and Alan Tudyk's hair is funny!LOL!)

I understand the anime thing too - not that I am in to it these days, but when I was a child my friends thought me a little weird that I loved 'Kimba the White Lion' and 'Astro Boy' so much - it was their eyes and the funny way they spoke that I adored!

I like stealing home - even though I saw it a looong time ago and don't remember it much now. And I just saw Secretary a few months ago - it was shockingly entertaining. Who knew S/M could be so fun?

My guilty entertainment pleasure is the Top Model reality show. I know, it's horrible. But I get addicted.

Let's just say I am the queen of guilty pleasure movies. My video cabinet (I own A LOT of DVD's) even has its own drawer dedicated to movies I'm embarrassed that I own...and yet still love. Try these on for size:

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (SJP, Helen Hunt and some cute hunky guy dancing their little shoes off).

OK, now I'm catching up with yesterday...

Rugbug - re meeting up right away - I never did! I went on four dates from match.com, and each one had at least two weeks of swapping emails beforehand. Maybe it's a Vermont thing, but each guy waited for me to make the decision that we should meet. They offered their phone numbers, and left it up to me to call or not. Nice boys.!

There's nothing wrong with insisting that you wait to get to know them over email, and then maybe a phone call or two, before you meet face to face. That's the whole point of the internet dating thing (or it was for me) is meeting people and yet avoiding that really awkward date with someone you don't know at all and end up not liking but you're stuck with them through dinner.

Don't worry about being rude. Just insist that they stick with email, and don't even follow up if you're not interested. I was trying to be nice, but that doesn't work. Polite good, nice not so much.

You have a hopeful, huh? You gonna swap info before your membership expires?

I am gonna have to say that Bring It On is my increadibly pathetic movie guilty pleasure, can't conjur up a reason as to why exactly. I guess because Eliza Dushku and Kirsten Dunst play cheerleaders I guess. And come on how funny is the "spirit fingers."

I guess my guilty pleasure is romantic comedies in general. What can I say? Being raised by a single mom you sorta get exposed to a lot of these things.

I even own When Harry Met Sally on DVD.

Worst first date movie was probably Master and Commander. That movie is terrible. Luckily it worked out for the best since we were cracking jokes about how stupid the movie was the whole time. Knew I had a keeper immediately.

LOL!!! I love that movie too - I am so sharing all my darkest secrets today aren't I? I was surprised when one of my friends said that her younger brother and another friend were watching it one evening - both 'boys' were in the youth group which I ran at the time - I said, "Why would they be interested in 'Bring it On'? Bit of a chick flick I would have thought", but she gave me one of those looks and just said - "the car wash"... I was floored!... my young boys were growing up...

Edit: I also love 'When Harry Met Sally' and can quote huge chunks of it... 'tis a sad fact, but there it is! ...of course the "...I'm gonna be 40!" line isn't quite so funny when you are 39, but it was hilarious when I was 32!! ...now where'd I put that DVD...?

im also a HUGE fan of all Disney movies..especially the cool older ones, when they were all musicals and had storylines based on myths and fairytales...
and i just spent the last 2hours or so watching My Fair Lady on cable...one of the best movies ever...

(OMG, Magdda... you posted that it was saturday, earlier, and when i read that i had a total random moment of.."it's SATURDAY??? does that mean it's saturday NIGHT?? where the hell did saturday go?? i thought this was friday...did i just totally miss a day?..what day was today, anyway??"

2) I'm all about the Disney Princess movies - not by personal preference, mind you, as I am the proud father of two gorgeous (very) young ladies. That said, "Cinderella" is almost the perfect movie - superb animation, sympathetic, attractive lead, classic songs, humor (the "pompous windbag" line is a family favorite), pathos, good, evil, classic archetypal plot with brilliant pacing and execution, talking mice, magic, and it ends with a wedding. My only quibble is I would have liked to see the wicked stepmother get a little more humiliation at the end, like being forced to walk away from the estate penniless in rags with her nasty daughters sobbing behind her.

As far as guilty pleasures go, nothing comes immediately to mind, except for the great time I had watching Clerks 2 with the wife a few weeks back. It's not that I feel guilty, it's just that through large portions of the movie, I felt like I should feel guilty for finding it funny. What really made my day was the live theater part of the presentation: observing which groups of viewers walked out on the movie at various times. For those who haven't seen it, imagine a scene where some white doofus is arguing with a black woman that various racially derogatory terms are not in fact insulting. It's quite over the top, and then a black couple walks out right in front of you. It just meshed seamlessly with the on-screen action. Then there was the older couple, then there was the family with 12/13ish year old girls in tow (I honestly couldn't figure out how they had made it as far as they did, I would've taken my girls out of there in about three minutes flat.)

I'm from a small town called Middlewich, which, compared to the rest of Cheshire, is a bit of a backwater slum to be honest. Alcoholics and bratty children galore!

N.B. If it turns out that one of your friends does live in Middlewich, I apologise in advance

Sixteen Candles? Guilty? Whatever for!?! Maybe it's just because that was my generation, but I love that movie! And Breakfact Club, of course! And Pretty in Pink!

It's all about Molly Ringwald, baby!

She's so whiny in those movies. I guess it don't help that she's so gorram cute. I love the Sixteen Candles referances in Harold and Kumar (another guilty pleasure).

So I was thinkin' what a busy weekend I got comin. But there may be a silver lining. My oldest friend in Iowa (Yes FMF, it does exist. Been there.)is considering sending me a new pistola. He's gonna take payments and I'm so happy I could poop!

Good night Mags. Kinda nice seein' here this week. Hope your days weren't too harsh bein' up so late and all.

Tristan!

Okay, why did you have to drop in Red Dawn. It is in the film therapy list. The whole thing between the brothers and their dad always gits me like a snappy punch to the nose.

That and the stupid snot bubble really ruined Pat Swayze's breakdown.

Whenever someone says something totally off the wall... totally from left field, the reply is always "John has a long mustache. John has a long mustache."

*Powers Boothe was the soldier the Wolverines come upon. I was 17 and totally in love...

I love Red Dawn. A classic guilty pleasure.

Childhood crushes:
Linda Carter, Crystal Gayle, Daisy Duke, and the second grade teacher down the hall. Always had a thing for dark haired women. And they always had a thing for breakin' my heart. Can't win.
