    I thought that Paul Blart: Mall Cop was actually kind of fun. I'm also a big fan of Zoolander, which always makes me laugh.

    I love suspense movies like Black Widow and Fatal Attraction. I also love Steel Magnolias, A League Of Their Own, Devine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood, Fried Green Tomatos, etc. One of my most favorite suspense movies is Obsessed with Beyonce.

    true, if we had a thread for loved movies that we hate, i would put dirty dancing in it. i dont meet that many other people who are as allergic to it as i am.
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I'm not sure Ladyhawke qualifies as a hated movie. I know a lot of people who are embarrassed by it, but haven't met anyone who hates it.

    It's the last movie I went to that got a huge ovation at the end from everyone in the theater. When I was really little, that was common. The practice died out as society realized there was no one there to hear the cheers.

    Anyway, Ladyhawke is a fabulous movie. Even if it's got some gross historical inaccuracies, it's a great story.

    I remember Lady Hawk got some good critical notices when it came out, but it was a b.o. failure.

    It was hated by the critics, but did well at the box office. That's what I mentioned in my post.

    "Glitter" belongs next to "Showgirls" and "Who's That Girl" on the "so horrifically awful, it's hilarious" movie list.

    And I am sooo jealous of your viewing experience, it must have been incredible.

    It must be one of the most vomit-inducing pieces of crap, ever etched onto celluloid.

    Misspelling a title that has been correctly spelled in the same thread, on the same page, in a post near to yours should result in an immediate public lynching, including being whipped naked, as the cheering crowds watch on.

    That movie tends to appeal to a particular demographic - were you even born in 1987?

    Yes.

    But that really doesn't have much to do with it.

    The fact that it's cheesy, sickly sweet and not very clever does.

    Not enough misery or the meditation on the futility of life.

    Another Legend fan---I liked Ladyhawk too.

    It has everything to do with it. If you look at when that movie came out, what was going on at the time, and how it fits into a timeline of similarly themed movies, tv and music, you see that it was aligned for success.

    The audience that loved the movie - mostly women, of all ages - was ready for it because of when it came out and what had come before it.

    The fact that it's cheesy, sickly sweet and not very clever does.

    Cheesy and sickly sweet to one person is nostalgic, romantic and innocent to another. And looking a little more closely, the plot and dialogue may have been simple and formulaic, but the themes were for the most part timeless, thus connecting to the intended audience, whether it reflected an aspect of their own lives, or an idealized version of same.

    And I'm sure you're being sarcastic about misery and meditation on the futility of life, but the movie actually has quite a bit of that too.

    Nope, I'm not being sarcastic. All the movies I like feature those two components.

    I don't ever watch cheesy movies for fun (well, the only exception being ironically and sarcastically watching something horrifically awful, like "Showgirls").

    Since it is the season I always loved "Silent Night, Deadly Night". It was gutted by the critics and because of protests it only stayed open for about a week. Siskel and Ebert totally didn't get it, they slammed it saying it had no value, no sense of humor, and I was like HUH? It's all campy fun, with dumb cops, dumb slasher vics and a homocidal Santa. I watched it with friends on Xmas, after It's a Wonderful Life made me gag.

    Hi mlp, I am IceAlisa. I loathe Dirty Dancing.

    Has anyone seen Christmas With The Kranks? I thought the director/writers were kidding. It was a joke, right?

    Another vote for loathing that movie. And in an even worse sin for women in my age group, I never found Patrick Swayze attractive at all.
