What are some of your "guilty pleasure" films?

Some films I like that others hate are: 

Transformers (2007)-I know everyone loves to bash the Bayformers films (and for good reason), but I enjoyed the first one a lot. Everything else after was trash IMO, especially 2 and 4. I still haven't seen the 5th one yet, but I heard it's somehow even worse than 2 and 4 SMH.

The Fourth Kind is another film I hear a lot of "meh" things about, but found myself enjoying.

I also found myself enjoying G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra for what it is (the second one sucked). 

I also enjoyed Bad Boys II as a popcorn flick, I must've watched it dozens of times on DVD already. Looking forward to the third movie (Bad Boys for Life).

People hate Bad Boys II? I was just living in a bubble this whole time, and thought everyone liked it. I too watched the DVD many times, it's a classic to me.

Well, it's a summer popcorn/action flick, of course it has its share of haters. It has user average scores in the 6s on all the major movie review sites (IMDb, RT, MC, etc.).

Oh and another guilty pleasure movie of mine is the first Scary Movie. Yeah, sure, every film afterward was terrible, and it did spawn the career of the 2 most untalented and unfunny hacks in all of Hollywood who produced nothing but godawful, unfunny, unwatchable garbage films (Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg), but I actually kinda enjoyed the first one. I remember me and my boy used to reenact jokes from that film all the time back in the day, mainly the "aw man, am I fuckin' stoned" one.

Which BTW, there's a reason why they WERE 2 of the 6 writers from Scary Movie: it's because they were fired for being untalented hacks. They obviously wrote all of the jokes that sucked.

I liked Oz the Great and Powerful a lot. Don't remember much of it, though.



That one with Adam Sandler.

Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls. One of best movies ever.

Originally liked the first one most. As an adult, I find the sequel to be superior.

I found Ace 2 more inconsistant, with the worst elements of it being the lame recycling of old jokes and catchphrases from the first movie. Steve Odekirk had some great comedies, including his magnum opus, Kung Pow! which I have referenced in similar threads throughout the years. Maybe even in this one. He was largely uncredited for his work in the first Ace, but the second was kinda his baby. I wonder what happened to him? Maybe Kung Pow! killed his career. Haven't seen any of these movies in ages.

- Hm nvrmnd. I see he was still working up till 2013, but has since stopped. Maybe he just retired.

I don't consider them guilty pleasures but I am huge DCEU fan except Josstice League.
Release the #Snydercut. The new Hellboy is also good (it does have some inconsistent CGI though) and I recommend everyone ignore the critics on it. I also Enjoy Venom admittedly both those 2 movies are kind of guilty pleasures. 2 of my favorite MCU are the First Thor (best Thor and Loki movie) the incredible Hulk (before they totally ruined the writting of Banner and made him a joke).

I've heard the name Steve Okekirk, but I wasn't familiar with him enough to know his filmography. I do love me some Ace Ventura 1 and 2 and Kung Pow (Betty...), so I will check out his imdb to see what else he's done!

Also, I agree with you that Ace 2 recycles a lot of the jokes from the first movie. I will add that it feels cornier in some areas like music and it just looks cheaper compared to the first one with regards to cinematography, setting, etc.

However,  I will also say that the parts that weren't recycled really shined and set it apart from the first one. Specifically, the side characters stood out more. As a straight man to Carrey's Ventura, Ian McNiece was so funny and likable that he makes Courtney Cox's role seem blah even though she was adequate and had the hot factor.

And the dynamic of Ventura and people from other cultures (both the monks and the African tribes) was funnier/more interesting than his investigating the football team (to me at least...but I was never into sports so I see others disagreeing).

The mystery and story from the first was better (especially that end reveal), but in terms of making me laugh, the sequel was so over the top allowing Carrey to be so in his element, that I basically remember the entire movie when I start thinking about it. There are a few standout scenes in the original, but there's a lot I've forgotten and the scenes that I do remember don't make me laugh like the ones I remember from the sequel (the white devil scene, shikaka, Ventura spitting out a pile of sunflower seed shells onto McNeice's arm over the course of their flight lmao). Both were great though.
