Jeana (jeanaclaudine) I've got another apartment to rent. I wish I could just get tenants to stay for like 50 years. Then it's not as much work. But at least I got rid of my two problem tenants. Nothing but good tenants from here on out.

message 7: by Joanie (new)

Joanie | 86 comments I LOVE SHAG!!! I forgot that one! Nice one Alison!

Oh, and I watch Twister too, why is that?

message 8: by Joanie (new)

Joanie | 86 comments Just remembered one that was one yesterday,

Can't Buy Me Love with baby Dr. McDreamy

message 9: by Alison (new)

Alison Joanie: You watch Twister because you like to see flying cows?

I love Shag so much...every time I hear that song "Fifty Minute Man"...I go looking for my Shag on VHS.

Luanne: Here, you'll wear my momma's hoop skirt.
Malaina: I know how to win this thing.
Luanne: Why Melaina! It is bad manners to think about winnin'!
Malaina: Look Luanne! I'm not goin' to college like some people. And I sure as hell ain't marryin' a damn Ralston. And I ain't gonna die in a parish house in Spartanburg, South Carolina, thank you. Luanne, I'm as pretty as any of those girls in Hollywood. This is my chance! Jimmy Valentine's gonna discover me today, and it ain't gonna be in your mama's hoop skirt!
Luanne: Would you at least consider wearing my one-piece bathin' suit?

message 10: by Jo (new)

Jo | 24 comments The Sweetest Thing (I know shameful)

Fast Times at Ridgemont High (I can recite it line for line)

Can't Buy Me Love (I loved McDreamy even then)

She's Having a Baby (my 1st intro to Kate Bush)

Blue Lagoon

Summer School.

message 11: by Joanie (new)

Joanie | 86 comments Jo I love She's Having a Baby-even bought the soundtrack for the Kate Bush song and Apron Strings by Everything But the Girl.

When Harry Met Sally is genius!! I love the old couples talking about how they met and the one woman says "He walked up to me and he said 'I'm Ben Small, of the Coney Island Smalls' and at that moment I knew, I knew the way you know about a good melon."

You guys are making me want to dig out my VHS tapes and have a cheesefest!

Alison, I love the part where Pugde says that Carson and Harley aren't going to have sex before they get married because Harley doesn't see the point and Malaina says "and then he'll spring it on her that he doesn't have a tallywagon"

message 12: by Holli (new)

Holli I never pass up Pulp matter what part is's in my top 3 all time fave movies.

Sixteen Candles (can't pass it up)---I know it line for line along with Grease and Dirty Dancing too.

I agree about Twister---what is up with that movie? I can't help myself either!! LOL

Weird that one! and the American Pie HAVE to watch those when they are on some random channel.

Also...She's All That. Can't go wrong with Freddie Prinze Jr. and Paul Walker in the same move. SIGH!!

message 13: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca | 3 comments You all are cracking me up... and making me nostalgic ;)

Real Genius -- I thought my brother and I were the only ones obsessed with this movie LOL I have NEVER passed on a chance to watch it.

Alison, I love me some SHAG!!! Seriously, for my sister's wedding, we had a slumber party for the bach party, ate cookie dough in our pajamas and watched Shag. The theme line for the weekend:
"Now, we can have a good time. But we CANnot be wild."
Even funnier is the fact that my sister's husband bears a striking resemblance to Chip, in appearance, breeding, and style :)

Steel Magnolias, Footloose and Zorro the Gay Blade -- along with the classic John Hughes' 80's flicks, they make up my go-to movie lineup for cleaning the house LOL

message 14: by MJ (new)

MJ This is great and I really want to go watch some old movies.

1. Ferris Buehler's Day Off -Dont ask.

3. Footloose -music rocks and Kevin Bacon was my 1st crush
4. Who Framed Roger Rabbit -Funnier know that I am older.
5. William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet - the one with Claire Danes and Leo DiCapro I just sit mesmerized
6. Twister -I dont pretend to understand why but I do like that flying cow.
7. Shag -love love love it
8. And of course Real Genius - Val Kilmer has a hot nerd could life get better

Bonnie Snow Day

message 20: by Laura (new)

Laura (laurahogan) I always watch Scarface (the 1982 version) when I see it on TV. It's a dreadful, dreadful movie, but I find myself oddly riveted. Go figure.

message 21: by Tressa (new)

Tressa  (moanalisa) Overboard (comic genius)

Ravenous (It's about cannibalism but the scruffy men are so hot in this movie, I never pass up a chance to watch it.)

Fried Green Tomatoes

Steel Magnolias

Dolores Claiborne (Watch it everytime it's on TV. Kathy Bates is mesmerizing in this role.)

Bridges of Madison County

Pretty in Pink

message 22: by Alison (new)

Becky | 51 comments I second Center Stage, with the amazing costume changes in the final dance sequence!

If you liked Center Stage, Camp (about musical theater camp) is right up your ally

and I hate to admit but Bridget Jones Diary's (both of them) I think its the Pride and Prejiduce theme that keeps sucking me in! (and I love Colin Firth)

message 27: by Meg (new)

Meg (megvt) | 362 comments My favorite old time movie, that I would watch forever is The Big Chill.

message 29: by Judith (new)

Judith (jloucks) 1. "Weekend at Bernie's
2. "Clueless"

Ellenjsmellen | 6 comments Fast Times

message 33: by Ranata (new)

Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) | 169 comments I LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie!

"Admit that I'm the Mary and you're the Rhoda!"

message 34: by Ranata (new)

Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) | 169 comments All great films, Judith. I love Julia Roberts in My Best Friend's Wedding!

Weekend at Bernies is just hilarious because it's so obvious he's dead. LOL

message 35: by Ranata (new)

Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) | 169 comments Shag (I absolutely ADORE this movie. Me and my cousin came across it on tv one day and loved it)

Holli Shannon-----you are cracking me up now!! I'm going to have to get out the VCR (!) and watch The Money pit today!!

Splash.....that's a good one too.....I just saw that someone put that one out there. Lost Boys (I was in Santa Cruz when they were filming that....SIGH) I LOVE that movie!!!

message 37: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca | 3 comments Oh, but see noe you all are listing all the movies I'm NOT afraid to admit to loving, too!

I not only love, but OWN:
Steel Magnolias
Better Off Dead
Love, Actually
The Money Pit
Center Stage
Can't Buy Me Love
Ferris Bueller
and the list goes on.

They are just so great.

(And seriously Shaz, who DIDN'T want to be Carson? LOL It appealed to the tall blonde that I am, to be the petite adorable brunette for once.)

message 38: by Joanie (new)

Joanie | 86 comments I used to be obsessed with Better Off Dead, any time the video store didn't have something I wanted I'd just rent Better Off Dead again. I still squeeze my son's cheeks on either side of his mouth and say "friend" Of course since he's not two yet he doesn't get it but it makes me laugh!

message 39: by Shannon (new)

Shannon  (giraffe_days) Joanie, me too! Years ago my sister found an ex-rental VHS for me, and now they've released it on DVD as soon as I saw it I bought it. The line "Gee Ricky I'm sorry your mum blew up" is a classic! And the "friend" scene - oh all of it! There's so many small details, every time I watch it I notice something new.

Rebecca, I still love Ferris Bueller too, it looks a bit dated but just never grows old! Love, Actually is a great movie!

message 40: by Schmitty (new)

Schmitty (tastygreenjelly) Breakfast club
Ferris Bueler's Day Off
Brave Heart
Better Off Dead
Say Anything

Walk The Line

message 42: by John (new)

John | 14 comments I've seen Grease 2 over 30 times on cable, and I even bought the soundtrack album when it originally came out back in 1983. (Had a big crush on Michelle Pfeiffer at the time.) Yes, it's a crap movie, but there are so many stupid things I love about the film -- including the song "Reproduction", the song in biker heaven ("Turn Back The Hands of Time") and any scene with Adrian Zmed. The story is completely ridiculous, although I will admit to totally eating it up when I was a awkward and shy teenager who wanted to date the prettiest/most popular girl in jr. high. At least the message at the end is a lot healthier than the original Grease ("Conform to peer pressure and change yourself and people will like you -- especially if you become a slut.") Guilty Pleasure runners up also include "Flash Gordon" ("Flash Gordon, you've saved your Earth. Have a nice day!) and "Cruel Intentions". (Best quote too suggestive to print here.) But Grease 2 is my ultimate guilty pleasure.

message 43: by Jenn (new)

Jenn | 99 comments I also loved Grease 2 and have the soundtrack on vinyl! But...I do love Grease also.

I admit to liking any movie I truly like, so I don't consider them "guilty pleasures" per se. I own most of the things mentioned, but I also really like horror (especially foreign) and all kinds of period flicks so the field is too vast for me to pick.

Rob, tisk you don't know.

message 44: by George (new)

George | 951 comments Rambo and its sequels. But I don't often admit it.

message 45: by George (last edited Apr 29, 2008 03:43PM) (new)

George | 951 comments Yes, Rob, all too true. I will admit to having seen that as well, in a fit of moral or perhaps immoral support. Actually, Boogie Nights was a surprisingly good movie. I really liked Don Cheadle in it. When it comes to movies I have no obvious Sense of Shame.

message 46: by Lynn (new)

Lynn | 16 comments I LOVE the movie Victor is so flamboyantly wonderful!!! Julie Andrews is awesome.

message 47: by Lynn (new)

Lynn | 16 comments I love Beetlejuice too...every once in a while it will be on a cable network somewhere and I end up watching the entire thing!

message 48: by Lynn (new)

Lynn | 16 comments Love those "spirit fingers"!

message 49: by Lynn (new)

Lynn | 16 comments What about Moonstruck - the combination of Cher and a very young Nicholas Cage is great!

message 50: by Meg (new)

Meg (megvt) | 362 comments It is not pornography, it is just raunchy fun! Heather Graham's best movie
