Movies I'm embarrassed to love...

You already know some if the music I'm embarrassed to love, so here's some of the movies I'm embarrassed to love, too! I'll let you keep reading as long as you swear not to laugh....and if you do laugh you're laughing with me, right?
`
The Legend of Billie Jean.
Okay people, you remember this one, right? Sometimes my hubby and I will be arguing ("talking") about something, and to lighten the mood, I will yell "fair is fair!" and the husband cant help but roll his eyes and answer me "Okay, Billie Jean." The music in this film doesn't get any better- Pat Benatar and Billy Idol are on the soundtrack, among others. It's one of those "I'm a girl, dont fuck with me" kind of soundtracks. Wait, did I just say fuck? It also has a young and yummy Christian Slater in it. Nowadays he's kinda creepy looking and geez, his forehead is HUGE. Time for some hair plugs?
`
Rocky III. "If I can change, then you can change! And then everyone can change!". Cheeseball goodness. I saw this for the first time in the theatre for a birthday party in 3rd grade. This is the one that Apollo Creed dies in, and it has the best soundtrack if you're into 80s music. I actually work out to some of the songs on here.
`
Fletch. The first one. Chevy Chase in his prime. Great script. Need I say more? I know you've seen it, too.
`
Dirty Dancing. I think I still know every word to every song from this movie (dont tell anyone, though). And I cant help but slobber when I see Patrick Swayze roll his hips. Yum. No one puts Baby in a corner.
`
The Craft. This is such an awful movie but, I loved it then and I still love it. A young Skeet Ulrich is in it, and although the movie is full of eye rolls it's still fun. I watched it when it first came out (I was in high school), and it was my dream to make every girl's hair fall out that I hated in school (which was pretty much all of them). I know, I was a nice person. Good thing people change as they get older.
`
Dumb and Dumber. My favorite all-time comedy. It gets funnier every time you watch it. There are so many good quotes from the movie I'm not even going to start with them! If you want to watch a scene from it, click here. Or remember The Mocking Bird sing along? Priceless.
`
Road House. This is a cult classic. Even my husband will watch this one with me. And remember the girl in the bar? The hair, the dress, the well vodka drink. It's the 80s at it's best. And I'll never forget the coined line: "I thought you'd be bigger".

I LOVED Legend of Billie Jean... of course it might also have to do with the fact of back in the olden days of HBO they played the movie at least once a day.

When I ran my 2 mile PT test in the Army I always use to sing "Eye of the Tiger" to myself... Good lord that's cheesy.

And Fletch... Only Chevy Chase can pull off the line "I'm sorry my car just hit a water buffalo, can I borrow your towel?"

Never saw all of The Craft but there's something about hot women doing witchcraft that's hot...

I've watched all of the Rokcy movies because my husband loves them, and III ain't bad...

Dirty Dancing? Please. Every girl in sixth grade watched that movie a billion times and tried to dress, dance, and do their hair like Baby. Me included.

The Mom said...

Oh man I love Legend of BJ! That sister (?) is Lisa Simpson's voice in the Simpson's I believe. Love that movie!

Fletch is hilarious too!

I need to nab this idea! Also i want to do that movie quote meme we did a while back, that was fun too!

Kathy said...

I love that movie Legend of Billie Jean too! I so wanted to be her, cut my hair like her! Shake my fist in the air! And don't knock Billie Idol and Pat Benatar, they rock! LOL

Steph said...

I love you. I cannot believe Dumb and Dumber made your list. You rock!!!! People always look at me when I tell them it is my all-time favorite movie. Great blog :D Bravo!

musing said...

I feel so old! I got married the year Rocky III came out.

Jen said...

Jason just tivo'ed Road House and we were contemplating why there was a "network" of bouncers in the country. I thought he'd be bigger!

Merrie said...

I love all of those, too. Saw The Craft in high school, and to this day, I watch it every time it's on tv.
I think I may have to share my secret shame movies soon, too. :)

Oh, I'm a big fan of Dumb & Dumber! Just when I thought you couldn't get any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!


haahahah - great blog!

Hey Tasha, I am a friend of Matt's from way back when. I love reading your blog, you even motivated me to get my ass in gear and blog too. I have to say, I am not nearly as good as you are. Days go by and I don't have time or I don't feel like being a clever blogger. Your blog always gives me a chuckle! I have to say that this post cracked me up because my friend Caron and I (ask Matt about Caron and Gretchen...Don't tell me what he says, it might be bad!)ALWAYS look for opportunities to say "FAIR IS FAIR" or "WE DIDN'T ASK FOR THIS..." you get the idea I'm sure. Sounds like you and I would really hit it off. You can check my blog out at www.whatagirlwants-gretchen@blogspot.com

Looking forward to reading your next post!

My favorite cheeseball movie was "About Last NIght" with Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, but really, who doesn't love Dirty Dancing. It's watchable over and over and over.

My older friends always say I'm "just a baby" since I'm 5-7 years younger than them and this proved it - Not only had I only seen two of those movies (Dirty Dancing and Dumb and Dumber) but I hadn't heard of the others. I am curious about that Billie Jean tho...

Mommie Mayhem said...

I loved Billy Jean!! Her short hair cut Rocks!! Dirty dancing .. who doesn't love dirty dancing !!

HappyHourSue said...

What a great post idea! I have to fess up to "Stayin' Alive" (Saturday Night Fever Sequel), "Perfect" with Jamie Lee Curtis and Meet Joe Black (Brrrrrrraaaaadddddddddddd).

Mrs4444 said...

LOVED the Legend of Billy Jean!! I don't usually remember movies unless I've seen them a few times, but that one stuck with me from the start :)

Mommie Mayhem said...

Oh ps. Im very proud of you for saying fuck !! LOL

Melissa said...

I love Dirty Dancing and I think I know every line in the movie too!!

just a girl... said...

You had me at Billie Jean and lost me at Dumb and Dumber. I too love me some Billie Jean.

Orion said...

Well... i can honestly say i've never watched the Billie Jean movie...

but i must admit... i was a little disappointed that you didn't have "Ghost" listed. Midway through my read i would have bet my left leg you had it listed.

Good thing i don't walk much!

NucMEd is Hot said...

LOVED loved loved Legend of Billie JEan and If I happen to catch The Craft on I will aways DVR it and save if for later, ike a dirty ittle secret.

Traci said...

You have AWESOME taste in movies... Although, you were wrong about Rocky III....That "if I can change" cheese was actually in Rocky IV when he fought in Russia. Rocky III was badass when Apollo trained him to fight Mr. T and Hulk Hogan threw out the ultimate cheese line, " To all my love slaves out there...Thunderlips is here...In the flesh baby!"

Legend of Billie Jean is a classic that has never made its way to DVD. Ughhh, that person holding that one back should be dragged by his testicles.

And of course you have RoadHouse....One of the most underrated definitions of true 80's macho!... Swayze's Dalton was only second to his Brody in Point Break!

Keep rockin' it you sexy thing!
