Hey, I #*&%ing OWN Desperately Seeking Susan, so back off! For me it’s “40 Yr. Old Virgin” which seems to be on permanent HBO rotation, “13 Going on 30” because I find Jennifer Garner completely irresistable in that movie plus hello, Mark Ruffalo! But for embarrassing? Any “Will Smith saves the world” movie: “Independence Day,” “Men in Black,” “I, Robot”…I can’t help it. They totally suck me in.
Ha! My must-watch movies are waaaaay more shameful:
“Clash of the Titans”, “Beastmaster” and “Willow”.
Yup – men with swords and horses battling with gods and wizards. Good times. When I lived with my parents, these three were always played back to back on TBS. We don’t have cable now, so my husband bought Willow for me this year. Now I just need to find copies of the other two.
Oh, my list of movies that fall into this category is long and shameful. I’m totally with Michelle when it comes to Will Smith movies, especially Independence Day and Men in Black. Dirty Dancing, Top Gun, anything John Hughes, the ‘new’ Parent Trap (Dennis Quaid…mmmm), Twister…the list goes on!
my suck in movies are of another generation … but then again, so am i. but it doesn’t matter how many times i’ve seen them.
animal house (yes, animal house)
when harry met sally
a few good men (demi moore and tom cruise’s best performances ever)
fame — it’s never one but if it were, i’d be a sucker for it.
oh and one last one — excalibur
– Dirty Dancing!! If this happens to be on when I’m channel surfing I always stop. “Nobody puts Baby in the corner!”
– Urban Cowboy – this was on Showtime when I was a kid (back when they only had a few movies they would play a gazillion times.) My mom had the soundtrack and I still know all the words to the “Devil Went Down to Georgia.” I love it when it pops up on CMT or TBS!
Anything John Hughes, John Cusak, Robert Downey Jr. or 80’s “brat pack”.
This one I don’t consider embarrassing – I’ve seen Beautiful Girls at least a couple a dozen times. I pop in the old VHS at least once a year to get my long-haired Timothy Hutton fix.
While I have yet to see “Everything is Illuminated,” it’s definitely on my list. As for “Mr & Mrs Smith,” I cannot and will not get tired of watching that movie. It’s hot…smoking hot. It makes me want to do big girl things to Mr Wonderful. And Brad Pitt. Another movie I can watch over and over again is “Mean Girls.” LiLo back in a time when she was still cute and kinda innocent.
Oh, the shame? Jess, I loved Everything Is Illuminated so much I ran out and bought both of Jonathan Safran Foer’s books. And his wife’s. They were excellent! (and as a side note, since I seem to not have your email, I got my Ravelry invite and wow! it’s amazing! goooo you two!)
wendee! beautiful girls is my most favoritest movie of all time. yesterday they were playing it at the gym and i almost, ALMOST, stayed on the elliptical for longer than my requisite 5 seconds. but you know, even timothy hutton can’t make me ellipticalize for more than 3 miles.
mine are: beautiful girls, stepmom (the shame! the crying!), sound of music, breakfast at tiffany’s, my father the hero, and…one fine day. yes, it’s true.
I still have yet to see Everything is Illuminated. I think it’s on our Netflix List though. Someone up there had almost the exact same list as mine though…Rockstar, When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle…although I’d have to add You’ve Got Mail.
I LOVE “Everything is Illuminated”! It’s so quirky and so interesting to watch. I will also always think of it with warm and fuzzy knitting memories — I was watching it the first time I ever tried two-color/stranded knitting!
