    There’s only one aspect of that film that would be classed as a ‘guilty pleasure’ and she’s stood between Fat Sam and Charles in Charge ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    Nope, it was watching it on the ferry that got me thinking.

    Nothing at all guilty about Bugsy Malone!

    I genuinely love Four Weddings and a Funeral. This often provokes surprising reactions in people. I don’t care, I think its brilliant and I’m the worst kind of pretentious arthouse film snob. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Either that or Coming To America for me. Pinnacle of Eddie Murphy’s career IMO, including his standup. The barbershop boxing debate makes me laugh uncontrollably.

    I really love all the John Hughes “brat pack” films from the mid 80s. Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller etc. Saw them all at the cinema first time around with my mates and they really struck a chord with us all. Not because our lives were anything remotely like those of the characters in the films (far from it), but because they seemed to be fairly insightful about being a teenager around that time.

    I believe that great comedy ended with Beverley Hills Cop ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    I know, I know…I’m as wrong as a wrong thing in wrongville.

    Also, FWAAF +1 (but I don’t think this necessitates any feelings of guilt does it?)

    Beverly Hills Cop was great. Still cracks me up. Also liked the first Lethal Weapon ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    “Approximately one million people will reach ten thousand degrees Farenheit in less than a second”

    Awesome.

    Go on then, what are the films that you love, that you probably shouldn’t.

    For me, you can’t beat a trip to Fat Sam’s Grand Slam ๐Ÿ™‚

    Remember, anybody who is anybody will soon walk through that door…

    @IHN you need to watch Anchorman a couple of times to build up the appreciation, i wasn’t that fond first time i saw it but now think it’s brilliant

    LOUD NOISES

    My two guilty pleasures are Blade and Blade 2. A lot of fond drunken memories of watching them at 3am when back from a night on the pop with my mates at uni

    There aren’t enough red faced smilies in existence to excuse that one

    Dumb & Dumber.

    The Muppet Movie.

    And pretty much all of the above, apart from Under Seige ๐Ÿ˜€

    My favorite at the moment is Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I like it so much I rented the whole Swedish trilogy excellent and very gripping.

    Imagine Me and You

    It’s a ridiculously soppy romcom, watched it sooo much i can quote nearly all of it and it still reduces me to floods everytime I watch it.

    Flash Gordon!

    I was trying to describe Ming’s (hot) daughter to a colleague earlier and a quick search brought up a Princess Aura appreciation thread on here!

    Plenty of the above have nothing to be guilty about. I seem to have a soft spot for rubbish US films flimsily based around the armed forces. Top Gun, Officer and a Gentleman, the submarine ones. Utter utter rubbish but I can watch them…more than once.

    Dune and Chronicles of Riddick, both got panned by the critics but I love ’em both.

    Oh, Sliding Doors too, which EVERYONE appears to hate.

    Not proud, but what can you do?

    I like Sliding Doors too. But then I *heart* Gwyneth P *swoon*

    Surely the only way this is a ‘guilty pleasure’ is if you actually are a serial killer?

    I watched Taken the other day with Liam Neeson for what must be the third or fourth time.

    It is ridiculous, and xenophobic (us girls travel to Europe and are sold into white slavery within minutes), and really quite racist

    But I love it

    Bryan: I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
    Marko: [after a long pause] Good luck.

    All I will happily watch many, many times although they are a bit old or tacky or whatever.

    Not sure if it qualifies as a guilty pleasure, but I love Black Rain and have watched it countless times. Probably not Ridely Scott’s most acclaimed movie, but I think Michael Douglas (I know!) and Andy Garcia make a really good team.

    Oh, and the preponderance of muchos bike action probably appeals as well.

    Perhaps not the most politically correct film either, but it’s my go-to film when Mrs Geordie makes herself scarce.

    Black Rain! I can reassure you here, I’d be very ashamed of myself if I was you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Point Break if there is any guilt it’s not watching it with total joy (although there are a few cringe moments round bonfires and at parties) ‘Cut my first tube’ is the classic delivery at exactly the right moment in all cinema history. Required viewing in GRF Towers, all must stay silent.. Classic movie, so classic it’s now our address here… That and also what it is..

    Can’t beat a bit of Nic Cage doing his anguished hero bit in Con Air, and The Rock, both of which are brilliant on a number of levels, none of them highbrow.

    Oh, and any of the Die Hards, in a similar vein.

    Forrest Gump – far fetched and typically American but also a great movie.

    Superbad – i should be too old to enjoy this type of movie
