I gave up all embarrassment when I slapped down Snow White at the cute Best Buy check out girl several years ago. Since then I've never been ashamed of anything I love.

If I were to name another I'd say Michael Bay movies. Although I'm not sure I'm embarrassed about it since I think I've actually defended his flicks on these very messege boards.

One that I have yet to buy is Bridget Jones' Diary. I think it's such a cute little movie, from Renee Zellweger looking awfully good to the "It's Raining Men" fight scene. Good stuff all around.

What's so embarrassing about liking Snow White? Assuming you mean the Disney version, it's rightly considered a classic!

The only problem with this movie is that people who have never seen it or heard about it think it is some kind of "chick flick".

"It's like 'This is Spinal Tap' but about a beauty pageant instead". I describe the movie like that all the time, but it doesn't help if the person has no idea what "Spinal Tap" is...

I love Popeye. I loved the cartoons as a kid and I think the movie (which came out when I was still a kid) does a great job of bringing the characters to life. Robin Williams and Shelly Duval are perfectly cast--as are the rest of the townspeople. I have the DVD and I can still watch it and giggle madly at the silliness of it all. It's so much fun.

Another very silly but fun movie that I'm embarassed that I love is Bubble Boy. Gyllenhall is great in a manic role that is very different from his usual silent brooding characters. Everyone else seems to be having just as much fun, playing their roles earnestly on the surface--but you know their tongues are planted firmly in their cheeks. This movie really cracks me up. It's like Edward Scissorhands meets Pee Wee Herman.

I'm not really embarrassed about anything that I own or enjoy as all of them are open for anyone to see (sig).

Though I will say that the most often not to be brought up in a conversation are quite a few films that I own from Korea. I'm a softie for a good tear-jerker from time to time and there are quite a few melodramatic films from this region that fit the bill.

The Marine - So ridiculous, it's awesome.

Walking Tall (remake) - God, help me, it's terrible but I just enjoy the hell out of it.

Ernest Scared Stupid - One of my favorites for Halloween.

There aren't really any movies that I'm embarrassated about liking/owning. I like some romantic comedies. Big deal.

But one of my friends does routinely give me shit for liking Cabin Boy.

I though Waterworld was a great movie. I'm not embarrassed to admit it, but i know lots of people hated it.

A lot of the movies mentioned are great flicks. Not sure why you'd be embarrassed about them.

My Little Pony: The Movie

I tear up every time that they blast the Smooze with Utter Flutter, forcing it back towards the Volcano of Gloom, in process successfully uncovering both Dream Castle and the Rainbow of Light.

I thought it was just me.

I would also add almost any cheesy horror movie to the list like any of the Sleepaway Camp movies etc.

Outside of the genre I would just say I love Troy and everybody I know thinks it's as bad as it gets.

I was going to, since I'm such a total horror nerd, but "cheesy horror film lover" is a badge I wear proudly. No shame in that.

I've taken grief for the fact that I'm a grown man without children who buys the occasional Disney movie. But when you consider it's one of the "princess" Disney movies it makes things a little more awkward.

Nearly 50 posts and not a single "Xanadu" mention Yeah, that's mine. For two reasons. ONJ (easy on the eyes) and a great soundtrack. The acting and screenplay are abysmal though.

And what's wrong with "Clueless" and "Notting Hill"!?

Used to surf before so I love Blue Crush...everyone keeps on telling me it's a chick flick. I consider it a surfing movie with chicks.

Would love to have this on Blu ray.

Well I have to say Im not embarrassed by anything I like... Im a fan of teen flicks so shit like Sydney White, Bring it On, Step Up, Stick It are a few guilty pleasures. The one I've taken the most shit for is A Walk to Remember. That fucking movie gets me every damn time.
