The Greatest Guilty Pleasure Movies

List Criteria: 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, 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 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.
