I realised recently that some of my favourite films are ones that are considered shit by most film buffs.

Grease 2
Supergirl
Flashdance
The Phantom of the Opera ( film version of the ALW musical )

Oh and Holiday on the Buses. I know it's awful, dated sexist rubbish but it makes me just howl with laughter. It was also filmed in and around Prestatyn and Rhyl in North Wales, which I'm pretty familiar with with.

Legally Blonde. I love it!

Burt Lancaster, even. Lol

I sat through Mannequin yesterday-it was brilliant and crap all at the same time.

Carry On films. Always enjoyable even with many viewings.

I forgot about mannequin I used to love it. Hollywood grin

Bring it on- absolutely corny cheerleading film with Kirsten Dunst. Watch it every time it's on.

Sparklingbrook Mon 11-May-15 23:35:13

Tremors. Although it's better than crap IMO.

Ownerofalittlechimp Mon 11-May-15 23:36:11

Just, I love Muriels Wedding!

Romy & Michelle's high school reunion
Clueless
Piranha 3D & 3DD

I'll go away now blush

SecretRed Mon 11-May-15 23:38:23

Mean Girls is my favorite film. I love it.

AmeliaPeabody Mon 11-May-15 23:45:03

Muriel's Wedding
Clueless

Tentatively mentioning Heathers. It wasn't really crap was it?

TheFallenMadonna Mon 11-May-15 23:48:53

Carry on Up the Khyber. I love it blush

EmeraldThief Mon 11-May-15 23:49:16

Muriel's Wedding is so not crap! Neither is The Goonies.

WestEast Mon 11-May-15 23:57:12

Maid in Manhattan. I don't know why I love it but it transfixes me like a kid watching cartoons.

And - Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

I think I can beat all for crapness with my adoration for…

"The Cutting Edge"

A run of the mill straight to DVD movie with every single cliché mined to maximal effect.
Two protagonists who hate each other but will ultimately dissolve in a pool of lust - check.
Montage showing getting better at an activity (in this case figure skating) - check.
Dodgy hairstyles and bizarre clothing choices only found in midwestern American movies of the 90s - check.

It's a must-watch!

I love most of the films on this thread blush
Don't tell mum the babysitters dead! I haven't seen that for years.
Yy to dumb and dumber and clueless
