12 Cringe-Worthy Movies You’ll Secretly Adore

We all have our guilty cinema pleasures, though some are just awful. However, nothing beats a mindless comedy, adventure, or muscle movie full of one-liners and in-house jokes.

In a recent online post, people are sharing their favorite but respectfully terrible movies. Here are 12 suggestions for anyone looking to get some laid-back entertainment.  

The Room (2003)

Those of you who still need to see it (and trust me, you do) will marvel at the lack of anything resembling professionalism — lights, camera, cringe. Memorable line: “You're tearing me apart, Lisa!”

Deep Blue Sea (1999)

“Jim and I used gene therapies to increase their brain mass,” says Dr. Susan McCallisterer of her botched shark experiment. “A larger brain means more protein. As a side effect, the sharks got smarter.”

Twister (1994)

Twister is not a terrible movie per se, though it does have some questionable set pieces. “I love it to death, but I know it's not Oscar-worthy,” laments a fan who cites Twister as their “all-time favorite movie.”

Eurotrip (2004)

Following the success of American Pie and its subsequent spin-off comedies such as Road Trip, EuroTrip is a gross-out comedy about a gang of students on a Euro vacation. “The plot is pointless but the humor is gold,” says an aficionado.

Dragonheart (1996)

What's not to love about this awfully great fantasy comedy? Dennis Quaid plays a dragonslayer who teams up with Sean Connery's cheeky dragon to con locals out of money. “Corny as hell but will always hold a special place,” comments a lifelong fan. 

The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

“I love The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift,” posts the next movie buff. “No shame; the acting is bad; the story is worse; the CGI is laughable.”
