    Sometimes they’re so bad they’re good. Sometimes they were box office hits (but not always). But for me these are irresistible and I'll watch them over and over.

    Valley of the Dolls – 1967
    The original one with Patty Duke, Sharon Tate, Barbara Parkins. One of my favorites.

    Fatal Attraction – 1987
    I’ve lost count how many times I’ve watched it.

    The Oscar – 1966
    This one is so bad it’s delicious. Stephen Boyd (redefined the expression “chiseled features”), Elke Sommer, Tony Bennett, Jill St. John, Tony Bennett.

    Fast Times at Ridgemont High – 1982
    Loved Sean Penn/Spicoli and teacher Ray Walston in the pizza scene..

    Stripes – 1981
    Was Bill Murray ever that young? (Was I?)

    Caddyshack – 1980
    I miss Rodney Dangerfield.

    Airplane! - 1980
    Too many great cameos/scenes to list. Hilarious!

    Ace Ventura, Pet Detective - 1994
    Jim Carrey had me in stitches.

    Fun list, Arlene. :) I'm about to prove that I'm really not much of a movie person... because out of all these movies you listed, I've watched a grand total of.... well, I think one. :oops: That would be Caddyshack.

    I can't actually remember if I ever saw Airplane or not... if I did, it obviously wasn't very memorable to me. hehe I do recall a clip or two of it, but that's all I think I've seen... clips.

    There are a few that I've watched more than once... one is Gloria with.... ummmm.... was it Gena Rowlands? Yes, I think so... and I love both the older and newer versions of The Lion in Winter and can recite many of the lines from memory. :) Beside that there were just a few except kid's movies that I wanted endlessly with my daughter. :D

    @Mari North - Hi!
    Yes, Gena Rowlands was in "Gloria" (about the ex GF of mobster who took in the little boy). Not a Guilty Pleasure movie, but still enjoyable.

    I was not able to see the latest Star Wars due to my hectic schedule. Maybe I will just wait for it in cable tv. Another upcoming movie that I'm waiting for is the clash of Batman and Superman. The plot seems interesting enough that is worth the wait. The trailer was shown starting August of 2015 with the caption "coming to the theaters in December (2015)" so I wonder what happened. Or was it already shown there in the US?

    I've seen and liked all those movies, except I can't recall The Oscar. One of my favorite guilty pleasure movie's was Fandango with Kevin Costner and I'm surprised how many people haven't seen it.

    Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, starring Lindsay Lohan.
    When the movie started I thought it'd be awful, but I really liked it.

    I always loved "Somewhere in Time" pure indulgence in sentimentality, the soundtrack using the Rachmaninov concerto adds to it for me as well.
