My Five Favorite Guilty Pleasure Movies plus Friday Frivolity Linky Party

This week the hosts of Friday Frivolity are compiling lists of their favorite movies or comedies. I decided to go with my “guilty pleasure” movies. Goofy, silly, no social redeeming value, but yet I find myself watching them over and over if they are on TV. Yes, I am old school and don’t use NetFlix or any of that fancy hi-tech streaming stuff. I only figured out how to do that in the last month. True story.

 

McClintock – John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara

I am not sure if this movie could be more politically incorrect. Advocating spanking a woman to tame her? This movie would never be able to be made today. As a woman I should be appalled at this misogynistic movie. But, it makes me laugh. I know it is wrong.

History of the World Part 1 – Mel Brooks and a whole bunch of other people.

I could have made an entire list of Mel Brooks movies, including Young Frankenstein, High Anxiety, Blazing Saddles, etc. But, this one is my favorite. Pure campy craziness. “It’s good to be the king”.

history of the world Flash Gordon – Sam Jones and Max von Sydow

Ok, I admit it, some of the appeal of the movie is the soundtrack. “Flash… aa-aaa… save each and every one of us!” I miss you Freddy! But, the campy fun reminiscent of the old Batman TV show keeps me coming back time and time again.

Stripes – Bill Murray and Harold Ramos

I don’t want to admit how many times I have seen this one. Completely improbable and disrespectful to the men and women that serve in our Armed Forces. “You know son, I’ve noticed your always last.”

Caddyshack – Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight

So much inane fun, especially the battle of wits between Carl the Groundskeeper and the gopher. Poor Carl never stood a chance… ha ha.

  1. I love Wedding Crashers. I was watching in while in labor with one of my kids, but we’d always pause it whenever the nurse came in. It’s not exactly family friendly, and I wasn’t sure what she’d think.

    After a few pauses, she told us we didn’t have to do that every time she came in, because she loves that movie. haha! (No excuses, play like champion!)
