Guilty Pleasures

I have a blogging buddy who has been an endless supply of entertainment this past holiday season. His birthday is coming up, but he’s also hit a rough patch. As we all know, this can make for a double whammy in the melancholy department. Since he’s looking for a way to chase the blues away, I thought maybe we could help!

If this were all about me, this would be a music based post. But, I’m considering the person I want to help cheer up. He’s a screen writer. So here’s what I’m thinking. I’m going to go with my Top 5 Guilty Pleasure movies… They can be musicals, they can be comedies, they can be whatever you want… And, of course…I’ll kick it off.

Just remember…this is to try to cheer someone up, so don’t judge…LOL!

There were so many different clips I could’ve chosen…many of them with music. But I picked this one because it shows the pure cheese that is Crybaby. Of course, the fact that Depp has a resemblance to Elvis in this may actually have something to do with my crush as well!

Like I said…I had a thing for Elvis…so I could’ve put pretty much any of his movies here…but chose this one. (Mostly because the song cracks me up.)

There is something just so cheesy and fun about this movie! Oddly enough, the first time I saw Maxwell Caulfied in this I’d already seen him in The Colby’s…so my first reaction was “OMG! It’s Miles Colby!”

It’s strange…I should really not be a fan of this movie considering The Cowboys are my team…but for the sake of this movie? I’m a Giants fan all the way…(And a huge Becky fan… She’s the couch cushion. ;-))

I LOVED Brandon Lee. Wish he were still around. He is what finally convinced me to go out with hubby. He asked me to go see Rapid Fire…LOL! For some reason, though, Showdown In Little Tokyo is my all time favorite. He and Dolph Lundgren just cracked me up.

So what about you guys? What are your guilty pleasure movies? Have you checked out Susie Landau’s “Use Me, Abuse Me Party“? If not, you’re missing out on some great opportunities to pimp yourself and to get to know some wonderful new bloggers. I strongly recommend you stop by and check it out!

    Hahaha! Love this film mashup of greatness. I would say The Holiday if I can drink wine and ignore Cameron Diaz’s lack of acting ability!
    Hey! Thanks for the shout out! The party is still rocking! The post will always be up so ragers can stop by anytime and click on a few links!

    Oh lord. I don’t know where to start for my guilty pleasures. I will say I do like what you posted except one. Cry baby. I saw that in theaters with my ex cause she wanted to see it. God I thought it was some form of new torture LOL.

    I loved “Little Giants!” I had such a crush on Junior Floyd (Devon Sawa) and yes, I still remember the character’s name. Didn’t even need to look it up. 🙂 Plus, it was just so cool to see Al Bundy not being Al Bundy and Rick Moranis not shrinking or blowing up his kids. A delight!

      LOL! Marie, it is the ultimate in cheese. Not even kidding about that. You will laugh your ass off, honestly. It’s about “squares, drapes and scrapes”. I wouldn’t recommend wasting much money on it, but you should watch it at least once. 😀

    I’m in shock. “I have been a good girl and one night of happiness is all I ask!”??? I had no idea that it was possible for a movie to have Depp in it and still be this awful. Wow.
    I’m not sure about guilty, but it’s definitely a pleasure for me to watch all the old Disney movies and I’ll even sing along to all the songs. 🙂
    Oh, and then there’s Grease and Dirty Dancing, of course. 😉

    Grease and Dirty Dancing. And there’s an old movie with Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer as adults . . Mitch Andersen and Rapheal Sbarge star in it but I can’t remember the name.

    Guilty pleasure: the Big Lebowski. With friends. Can’t watch the B.L. alone because then it’s just weird. Give me a zip line, robe, slippers and madras shorts! Here’s to your buddy. Hope his rough patch smoothes out soon.
