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

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.
