    Pretty much any Andy Sidaris movie (Savage Beach, Enemy Gold, Guns, Picasso Trigger, Hard to Kill). Must be watched with friends and alcohol. As an offshoot you can add any horrible Julie Strain (is there any other kind) movie.

    Other "bad" movies I legitimately like:

    "The 5th Element"
    "Starship Troopers"
    "Cabin Boy"
    "Halloween III"
    "Squirm"
    "Anaconda"
    "Cannonball Run I and II"

    Just the tip of the iceberg...

    One problem here: John Boorman's Excalibur is not considered to be a "bad movie." It was, in fact, very well reviewed back in 1981 -- and still held in high regard.

    All the Friday the 13th movies. Even the movies that the fans generally consider bombs.

    Two classic redneck faves that are utterly shameless in my guilty pleasures department:

    Smokey and the Bandit - "For the money, for the glory and for the fun!"
    Gumball Rally - "To internal combustion, and the wind in your face."

    "A place where nobody dared to go
    a love that we came to know, we called it..."


    Xanadu (1980)


    Sad, but true. This crapfest of an excuse for a movie touched something deep and cheesy inside my polyestered soul as a lad, and I can't seem to shake it. Even shock therapy doesn't help. I am a fan of Xanadu, knowing full well it is absolutely godawful.

    I still remember the TV tagline that played for this one (Double Impact) - Double the action, Double the excitement, Double the Van Damme.

    I went through a big Van Damme phase in the late 80's/early 90's, there was even a Death Warrant poster on my wall (I was 10). I think it stopped just after Universal Soldier was released.
