/ Cheesey crap movies that make you feel good
So, what crap films cheer you up?
But who wouldn't want the opportunity to get Drew Barrimore to fall in love with you every day?
heart warming to know exposure to all that unrealistic violence wasnt as harmful as they said it would be.
The Fifth Element
The bad guy gets his just desserts, good triumphs over evil, the boy gets the girl - what's not to like?
Into the Blue. Except it's not crap, just cheesy :-)
Every time I think of a suggestion, I realise that it's not crap :-$ (e.g. The Long Kiss Goodnight)
Maybe A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors?
Ha, I was thinking of that whilst writing my reply just above, before seeing your suggestion.
In fact most Milla Jovovich films fit the "cheesy crap but cheers the boys up" critera in the OP :-)
L.A. Story, one of my favourite films and I can't understand why.
Also not really crap but watched Crocodile Dundee yet again last weekend & found it just so much fun for a pretty corny film.
I've only seen it once, in the cinema, but I reckon Vantage Point would always draw me in. Ludicrous action thriller that pretends to be a "political conspiracy" thriller. Doesn't matter. Dennis Quaid is an utter dude in it, and has a magic indestructible car. Who could want more?!
mamma mia, so bad yet so damn good.
Now I think there's a common theme there.......
> Personally, Groundhog Day always cheers me up.
thats so not a crap cheesy film...well, maybe the loveydovey ending was a bit cheesy :)
but that aside it is actually an intelligent thought-provoking film
Kramer Vs Kramer
> Kramer Vs Kramer
Cheesy crap? I've only seen it the once, when it was new out, and can't really remember, but I wouldn't have thought that fitted the 'crap' definition. didn't it win some oscars?
My offer for this one is "2 Weeks Notice"!
My favourite chick flick, just makes me smile and I don't really know why.
Well I can see it has..... certain attractions....
Most of my cheer-up cheesy films are chop-socky films:
Wu Tang Magic Kick
Karate Kid (the Macchio/Morita one)
Although if I am really fed up I need an hour or two of Bagpuss or Clangers rather than a movie.
About a Boy
Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot
I Spit on Your Grave? (the 2nd half)
Oh and Footloose. Except that's not crap obviously
> Legally Blonde
I saw that at the weekend along with the remake. Ewwwwwww!
10 things I hate about you
OK it's clearly not crap, or even that cheesey
Sister Act always
Hot Shots 1 and 2. :)
Nico - Armed and Dangerous (Seagal running - hilarious!)
(watched this on Sunday and nearly cured hellish hangover)
Caddyshack (Mitch Cumstein anyone?)
There's so many more - my taste in films is terrible.
On this theme - On Deadly Ground, particularly the shamanic dream journey sequence with completely superfluous topless dancing girls in the background. You can picture the final screening before release, high fives all round and then someone smacks their forehead and shouts 'shit - there's no nipples in it! quick, film someone with their baps out and cut it in somewhere, anywhere!!'
Grosse Point Blank and Happy Gilmour, though they are maybe more dated than cheesy and crap, though they are very good.
That new Rambo one they did, so wrong yet so right
Absolute nonsense but i love every minute of it.
Jurassic Park - Cheesy acting, lame plot, kids but, but it does have DINOSAURS!!!!!!
Also LEXX (I know not a film as such but the pilot was and anyway i just wanted an excuse to mention Lexx. I worship his divine shadow)
> I Spit on Your Grave? (the 2nd half)
I watched that this year and was underwhelmed :-( Reviews suggest the recent remake is far nastier....so I might watch that!
