#1 Guilty Pleasure of All Time

As requested.

Don't hold it against me, but I can't help loving Easy Rider.

No need to apologize for a guilty pleasure! I currently have two - Thir13en Ghosts and The Frighteners.

Two movies that I get an inexplicable amount of enjoyment out of are Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and the Spike Lee 'what-the-hell-was- that?' mess Bamboozled.

I'm curious Bound to Lights, considering it's cinematic significance, why do you feel Easy Rider is a guilty pleasure? You sure you don't mean Flashback?

Easy Rider is a critically acclaimed film, so how is that a guilty pleasure? So is Big.

In terms of critics, Tremors and Big Trouble in Little China seem to be popular among their "guilty pleasures."

Deep Rising, but I don't feel too guilty. It's a solid B movie. Just like I have no guilt at all over loving Tremors.

Definitely. I'll also agree with one of the above posts about Big Trouble In Little China, and add the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I would agree with all 3 of those, except that I'm not embarrassed by my love for Big Trouble or Rocky Horror. The Postman, on the other hand ...

-sigh-

I never liked the term "guilty pleasure". Why should I feel guilty about something I enjoy? Who's saying I can't or shouldn't? Why would their opinion outweigh my own when it come to films I want to watch?

As far as films that I enjoy, despite the majority saying I shouldn't... I don't know, really. One or two gross-out comedies, eighties films featuring not-yet-stars and the odd Sandler film.
