Idid. God help me I did. Little fella just popped up to say hello. I'm sure there's a deleted scene from My Dog Skip where he plays naked frisbee with Skip. And another guilty pleasure-

The Hard Way- James Woods and Michael J.Fox in a buddy film. It tries too hard to be a straight action film in the third act, the villian is lame and it's not funny, but I like it.

Two movies I love shamelessly, yet am afraid to tell strangers are Clifford and Cabin Boy.  I laugh like a hysterical madman when watching these.  I've met quite a few people (my brother becoming more of a fan of these movies than me) who do agree, but most want to lock me up.  I felt this way for years, but maybe a month ago Charles Grodin was on David Letterman (the show) and Letterman mentioned that one of his favorite films was Clifford.  Grodin says he was suprised how critics and audiences reacted and that he is really proud of the film.  He then mentioned that he really enjoyed Cabin Boy and Letterman said he likes the film too.  After all these years of hiding the terrible secret of loving these films, maybe I wasn't mad after all.

Susan mentioned Chris Elliot, and that reminded me, I see a lot of raves all over the place for "Get A Life!", so I'm going to have to pick up the DVDs...especially if one has the "Spewey & Me" episode.

Get A Life! was a fantastic show. So fantastic, in fact, that while watching it became clear it would be canceled. Really twisted and absurdist humor, so of course mainstream America wouldn't like it. I felt the same way during The Oblongs, and it was off the air in three weeks.

"Oblongs" is a funny duck--Angus Oblong himself doesn't like it--slams the crap out of it at his site, but he still hangs out at the Yahoo! Group devoted to it and is highly supportive. Dammit, I wish I got Cartoon Network. I'll have to snag the boot.

The GET A LIFE DVD I have has "Spewey and Me."  It's volume 1.  I'm not sure if they've released any others.

Toss The Wedding Singer into the Guilty Pleasure list, it's the only Adam Sandler movie I would ever consent to owning...

Ah.."get a life"...that was the name of the show. I don't think you can like the show unless you like chris elliot. It's kind of like the show of George Costanza, only Chris was more loosery. I wish there was a channel that would rerun shows that had a short lifespan. I would love to revisit some old shows dating back to the 70's that only aired for a season or two and never rerun on any of the channels for either not having been a "popular" show or just the lack of shows to air. It can be called B-tv? ;-)

btw I had NO idea that show was on DVD!

That would be a cool TV station... There are some truly great shows out there that never made it past six or seven episodes (Police Squad, Clerks: The Animated Series, David Lynch's On The Air). Instead of movies, they could run failed pilots!

That would be great. We could even get a chance to see how bad the much-maligned "My Mother The Car" really was, or see the horror that was "Supertrain."

Joe's Apartment. Sex, Bugs, and rock and roll. And its even more twisted in the French Language track. French speaking cockroaches! Watching Joe's Apartment in french, followed by Batman...in French.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned these, since I came in late on this thread:

The Last Action Hero, in spite of the magic ticket gimmick and the sentimental parts, is a great spoof of 80s action movies. I really liked it.

Hudson Hawk, if it had been made 25 years earlier, probably would have been better received. Can't say why, it's just a feeling. Something familiar about the style of the movie. Hated Sandra Bernhardt though.

Probably my most controversial guilty pleasure - Megaforce. I've even got an original one-sheet of this mounted in my rec room. What can I say? When it came out, I was about the right age (12 or so) to think it was cool. It was, after all, the early 80s. Lots of cheese around. Besides, Persis Khambatta was really hot, even if she couldn't act for sour apples.

 The Lonesome Death of Jordy Varrel(sp?)

>or see the horror that was "Supertrain."

I kind of liked this show because I've always had an interest in trains. After the show was cancelled, there was an ad in one model railroading mazagine offering the model train from the show plus like a half mile of track for around $3000. Wonder if anyone eventually bought it.

As for short-lived series, I've like to finally see all the episodes of Beyond Westworld.
