To think this is a rubbish film (warning: popular 80s movie slating!)

I have a confession that I'd never utter IRL. It has taken a lot of bravery for me to do this and I may well be excommunicated from MN:

I hate The Breakfast Club. Angsty teens get detention. Some snog at the end. That's it. Boring!! First time I saw it i was waiting for 'the good bit'. It never came.

AIBU? What popular film can you not stand?

I can't stand watching Pierce brosnan as James Bond.

Also can't stand George Clooney as batman

I hate Dirty Dancing.

The Talented Mr Ripley. No - he wasn't. Shit film and not a single character in it that I cared about

Highlander. What a load of old balls that was.

I detest 'Dirty Dancing'!! This happens to be my DDs fave film - she thinks I'm odd!

I hate Lost In Translation, anything with hobbits, Star Wars and War Horse.

I think the Rambo films are piss poor (but I think most people think that too).

With you. Breakfast club is wank.

Whocansay Wed 31-Dec-14 17:50:39

Am shocked at the 'Dirty Dancing' haters!
I'm a sucker for a bit of cheese though.

I love that film. I wish I were a member of the brat pack.

expatinscotland Wed 31-Dec-14 17:51:34

Dirty Dancing is wank.

Lost in Translation is creepy and crap. Same for Dirty Dancing - hideous film.

catslave Wed 31-Dec-14 17:52:19

I do like a bit of Breakfast Club though. Sorry.

I've never seen dirty dancing. Anything by Tom hanks is wank and I've never seen titanic either !

Bogeyface Wed 31-Dec-14 17:55:04

I loved this film!

Then it was on TV a couple of months ago and my god it was dire!

It is what it is, a film about angsty teens aimed at angsty teens so they can feel justified in hating their parents!

What I want to know is, did Molly Ringwald give Judd Nelson the cold shoulder when they are back in normal school or would she go all edgy and be the prom queen shagging the bad boy? I hope the latter but I suspect it would be the former!

Marylou2 Wed 31-Dec-14 17:55:06

Noooooo!! Don't say that OP. I'm still in love with Judd Nelson and I'm 46. Whatever happened to him?

Mabelface Wed 31-Dec-14 17:56:56

I agree! Also hated Ghost and Dirty Dancing as Patrick Swayze made my skin crawl. I'm proud that I've never seen Titanic and I've not seen Frozen either.

Bogeyface Wed 31-Dec-14 17:57:34

YY to Highlander, saw that for the first time on TV recently, and it was awful! Sean Connery was particularly dreadful.

And I must confess that although I loved DD, I dont love it now. I think I was just the perfect age for the Brat Pack/Dirty Dancing/Ferris Bueller films, so when I see them now all I see is how awful and cringey I must have been as a teen!

Take it Back (puts fingers in ears)...

Ghost was arse, too.
