    What are some of the movies that you might catch on TV while bored and even though they are bad you just have to watch.

    I would say the top two I can think of right now would be "Teen Wolf" and "Problem Child" for some reason I can't get enough of those movies if I catch them on TV.

    Hey, Ryan, there's nothing bad or cheesy about Sarah Michelle Gellar french kissing Selma Blair! [​IMG]

    For me, I would say Kidnergarden Cop.

    I also agree with the Problem Child movies...all of them. :b

    Oh, and Home Alone 3. What can I say? I like the kid, Alex Linz, I thought he was cool, he had more charisma in his little pinky than Culkin had in his whole body!

    None.

    While I certainly watch some mentioned here, I disagree that they are bad or cheesy.

    For example I think the following above mentioned films range from good to great:

    Miss Congeniality
    National Lampoon's Vacation
    The Breakfast Club
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    Planes, Trains & Automobile
    Uncle Buck
    Christmas Vacation
    Kindergarten Cop

    Mommie Dearest is always one. And not just for the wire hangar scene either...its that scene where Joan smacks and chokes the shit out of Christina, and then sends her to a CONVENT!

    And also the Problem Child movies. Just the first and second for me.

    You guy's are listing some bonafide classics here, are you sure you want to classify them as either bad or cheesy?

    Escape From New York
    National Lampoon's Vacation
    The Breakfast Club
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off

    ...I think most film fans and critics alike would give the thumbs up to those films.

    Jaws 4 - just can't get enough of Mario Van Peeble's fake Rastafarian accent.... Or Michael Caine overacting.... or the over-rubberized shark.... Or Lorraine Gary's eternal stone-face.... or ad nauseum....

    Ice Pirates, every time.

    I found myself watching some of Cannonball Run II on cable today, and I'd watch CR1 as well. To me they are half crap, half genius (well, maybe 1/4 genius).

    Oscar, though I really think the writing is very witty. But since so many other people hate it I guess it goes here. Unlike normal cheezy films, I feel no guilt in liking this one.

    Haunted Honeymoon, I really enjoy that one, not that much guilt there either.

    Transylvania 6-5000 and Problem Child are 2 films I like simply because of Mike Richards. My buddy and I were huge Richards fans before Seinfeld so we enjoyed both of these.

    "Hey Warden" (throws dumbbell up at the warden as he walks the catwalk) - Problem Child

    "Man trying to get out, man trying to get out" (one of the greatest tricks to break into a place ever, though not a MRichards scene) - T 6500

    I cannot believe that no one has mentioned the all-time classic:

    Big Trouble in Little China

    No one has mentioned it, because IT IS AN ALL-TIME CLASSIC!!

    I think Ice Pirates absolutely qualifies. It is NOT a classic - it is horribly bad and goofy...and, I love it!
