The acting is awful and there's something I can't put my finger on about this film... it's like it doesn't have a soul. Parts of it are blatantly perverse. Yet I love watching it. It's exciting and sometimes kind of witty. There is something about the plastic actors that just works in this movie and I love the satirical news bits.

Big Business (1988)
Corny 80's comedy with a contrived plot (and that Higher Love song). This film is actually quite ridiculous. And it's kind of weird how the Lily Tomlin twins are both saps and the Bette Midler twins are kind of bitches. Shouldn't most of their personalities come from how they were raised? I don't know but I sure do love this crappy movie.

So Bring It On might not be a bad movie, both the acting and plot are fine and the movie is quite fun. I guess I included it on this list because...well...I'm over the age of 12.

Aaliyah wasn't a great actress yet (I like to think she would've become one) but she really had an appealing charm about her. And Jet Li is gracefully amazing. Plus the soundtrack was excellent and the look of the film was pretty stylish. But even though it has all of those elements, there was a disconnect. This movie just kind of fizzled and was uninspiring. Perhaps it was the fight scenes, they seemed too choreographed and mechanical.

Regardless of the blahness, I have always loved watching Romeo Must Die, including a line I still quote to this day--"Some you win and dim sum, you lose". Thank you Anthony Anderson.

Overboard (1987)
I love the part when she's about to kick all of their ungrateful asses but they all end up having a water hose fight and laughing with each other. It's bittersweet though because after that the movie gets way too sappy. Also, Goldie Hawn is awesome as a rich bitch.

It's such an absurd movie and I just can't help but LOL.

It's rather melodramatic. And they kind of can't sing. And I feel like the style is shoved down my throat. And I hate the name of Nicole Kidman's character. And I really hate the Like a Virgin bit. Wait, why do I love this movie again? Oh yeah, Ewan McGregor.

Get Him to the Greek is a bad comedy with a lot of sad moments, particularly when he finds out the kid isn't his. Nevertheless, I was surprised to find that I laughed out loud in this movie, a lot. When I saw Puff Daddy I thought I was about to witness some awkward wanna-be-actor cameo and he ended up being friggin awesome.

This is another movie that isn't bad at all, but I'm not supposed to like it because I really don't dig horror movies. It's scary and creepy and sometimes gory. I wish I didn't love it but it's just plain good.

List of movies that I know are bad (mostly due to bad acting and/or contrived plots) but can't help that I love them.

I like a lot of these movies - and i don't find myself hating that I like them. Maybe its just a matter of perspective.

You'll be surprised that Starship Troopers was nominated an Oscar for Best Visual Effects.
