So on Facebook everyone's been doing these Top Five lists -- Five TV Shows You've Seen Every Episode Of, Five Movies From Your Childhood, etc.
Here's mine. Five totally guilty pleasure movies I can't not watch if they're on (and sometimes seek out ON PURPOSE). Coal Miner's Daughter
: Okay, it's an Oscar winner, yes, but I'm not even a Loretta Lynn fan! Yet I have seen this movie more times than I can count, I can sing along with the soundtrack in my sleep, and I long ago got over the horror of Mooney marrying a thirteen-year-old girl.
(Okay, maybe not completely.) Loretta is so plucky! Or something. Malice
: Bill Pullman being adorable and clueless! Nicole Kidman being baaaaad! Alec Baldwin, pre-paunch, being sexy and arrogant and strangely almost ethical, if you squint right! House porn! I am a total sucker for this movie. Con Air
: There are no words. John Cusack being awesome. Nicholas Cage's horrible southern accent and convict hair. John Malcovich being a mastermind criminal with a silly nickname. Steve Buscemi being creepy with a random little girl. Lots of things exploding. I love it without reservation. I know, I know, don't judge me. The Blue Lagoon
: Okay, now
you can judge me. But it's a leftover from my childhood! It was ... like the Twilight
of my preteen years, but with actual (offscreen) we're-so-innocentcakes sex! And it's gorgeous -- that island, the water, the nubile young people, the soundtrack! Sigh. Sleeping with the Enemy
: I don't even know why I watch this one. Julia Roberts makes a fugly boy, for one thing. I think it's the house porn, both the Cape Cod house and the small-town Victorian (which I COVET). And I'm ashamed to say the scene in the theater's costume room makes me swoony with romance.
Okay, now share. What are yours?
