    "Weekend at Bernie's" has its merits.

    I liked the first Sex and the City movie. It wasn't amazing, but it was fun fluff.

    I nearly ruptured my spleen laughing at The Cable Guy. I thought the movie did pretty well, but apparently mainstream audiences found it too dark and disturbing.

    Stranger Than Fiction is a great movie! I also loved Ang Lee's The Hulk and ... About Last Night with Rob Lowe and Demi Moore in all their Brat Pack glory.

    A movie that didn't do well but I thought was phenomenal was Kathryn Bigelow's Strange Days.

    I liked Marie Antoinette too.

    Showgirls is one of those "really bad" movies but everyone just HAS to see for themselves. I didn't think it was that bad.

    although it may not have been intentional, some of the dialogue is hysterical
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I have a huge soft-spot for Reese Witherspoon, plus Buffy was great in this.

    I'd never expect you to say that out of all people.

    "Showgirls" is AMAZE, hilarious trash.

    "Who's That Girl" is also so trashy and bad, it's good.

    How deep.

    And before that, there was "Lost In Translation's" "pity us poor rich white Westerners so lonely in Tokyo." Boo hoo, pass me the tissues.

    Don't even start me on "Somewhere".

    Coppola's movies could be used to define "pretentious" and "form over content."

    Yes, that's the point.

    One of the worst movies I have ever seen (but then, I live in an arthouse bubble so it doesn't mean much).

    It's just totally chaotic and makes pretty much no sense whatsoever. It felt like it was a jumble of random action sequences. And they weren't even enjoyable. It was just a total mess. Ugh.

    It might have been at least partly intentional.

    Paul Verhoeven turned up to pick his Razzies up and gave quite a hilarious speech about having had done terrible movies in Europe and having moved to US to make more terrible movies.

    He later made "Starship Troopers" that also had this cult-kitsch thing going on.

    I thought Stranger Than Fiction was awesome but everyone seemed to hate it when it came out because it's so not a typical Will Ferrell comedy. Will Ferrell lovers mostly hated it and people who would love it didn't look into it. I think it's gaining a reputation as a good movie but it was certainly unpopular at first.

    Confession: I've never seen Showgirls. I really feel like I should.

    I love that movie too! I like when Hugh Grant is sassy, and Sandra Bullock was in prime "Miss Congeniality" comedic form. They had great chemistry.

    Loved Stay. Highly underrated film with two of my favorite actors, Ryan Gosling and Ewan McGregor.

    I LURVE Cruel Intentions! That is like, my generation! I wasn't even aware it was possible for people NOT to like that movie.

    I admit that I love the Patrick Swaze film "Road House". It's pretty stupid, but has some great fight scenes.. ;}

    I admit I secretly love You've Got Mail... If I'm not wrong, critics always hate every single Norah Ephron's movie

    Twister. It's got the most ridiculous lines and predictable plot. I've seen it about 50 times and it just gets more hilarious with each viewing.

    Oh, me too! And I LOVE Twister!!! I could watch that one over and over-I always wanted to be a tornado chaser.

    But I also seem to really hate a few movies that everybody else loved. Someone mentioned Forrest Gump upthread, and I absolutely despise that movie. I also loathe Pretty Woman and Avatar (although I was pulling for the Stephen Lang bad guy...I had to do something to deflect the boredom...) Sound of Music makes my eyes bleed and I become diabetic for at least an hour from the unrelenting sweetness of the thing. It took Victor Victoria for me to love Julie Andrews again.

    We saw "The Eagle" a couple of nights ago because I love me some sword and sandals movies. I don't think it got very good reviews, but I just loved it. Jamie Bell! He was wonderful!

    I also really love Valmont, which got lost in the buzz of the more popular Dangerous Liasons. But Colin Firth is definitely worth the effort! Colin with hair down to his waist...yep-works for me. I'm also an 18th century addict, and that movie was just beautiful to look at.

    Thanks for the advice. We'll have to add it to our Netflix queue.

    Make a kitsch themed party around it.

    Well, I've read all of the Sherlock Holmes stories, but I don't have Facebook account, so that probably had a lot to do with it. I had no trouble following SH, but had no idea who the people in SN were or what they were talking about
