List Criteria: Can be any movie, but you have to be embarrassed to admit you like it.

Listen to this list discussed by the Elfmans on the Ranker Podcast!



What makes a film a guilty pleasure? This is a movie that you love to watch, but won't display on your DVD shelf... or maybe you will stop to watch when you flip by it on TV, but never if someone else is in the room. These movies are not always bad movies per se, but our cultural zeitgeist has determined that they are cheesy movies - badly done, overdone, overwrought or made entirely of syrup. But, still, these movies draw you in. You love them. Secretly. 

What are the best guilty pleasure movies? This list of guilty pleasures is bound to be emotionally personal, so odds are, your #1 might not even be listed! Vote, rank your own list and add your missing faves.
