This movie is all guilty pleasure. The whole thing is all about mindless comedy, implausable plot points, bad acting, horrible one liners, and a good message about parenting. AND I LOVE IT!!! This film is so fun to watch, you can't help but laugh with it. To me, it is an essential comedy film for Christmas. But I will say the ending was stupid.
2. Scream 3 (2000)
R | 116 min | Horror, Mystery
While Sidney and her friends visit the Hollywood set of Stab 3, the third film based on the Woodsboro murders, a new Ghostface begins to terrorize them once again.
Votes: 106,356 | Gross: $89.14M
I think that this film was smart, funny, ferocious, and original. Not to mention that the killer (not telling who!) actually had a really good motive and had the guts to beat Sidney up.
3. Catwoman (2004)
PG-13 | 104 min | Action, Crime
A shy woman, endowed with the speed, reflexes, and senses of a cat, walks a thin line between criminal and hero, even as a detective doggedly pursues her, fascinated by both of her personas.
Votes: 94,157 | Gross: $40.20M
I know everybody hates this one, and I know, yes it is stupid, but it is pretty fun to watch. :)
4. Home Alone 3 (1997)
PG | 102 min | Comedy, Crime, Family

Votes: 84,639 | Gross: $30.88M
It was fresh, funny, smart, enjoyable, and I love the booby traps! This film wasn't NEAR as bad as Home Alone 4, and Alex D. Linz is a pretty fun wiz kid, but he isn't near as charming as Maculay. But at the time this was filmed, Macaulay would have been 16! Would you really want to see that?
5. Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987)
PG | 90 min | Action, Adventure, Family
The Man of Steel crusades for nuclear disarmament and meets Lex Luthor's latest creation, Nuclear Man.
Votes: 36,227 | Gross: $15.68M
Okay, don't judge me here, but I say that this film, while it is bad, isn't that bad, and is more of so-bad-its-good, and I consider it better than Superman III. I mean, did anybody turn into a robot in this one? In this one, you can laugh and be suspensed, Nuclear Man is a pretty nasty villain, but Superman triumphs.
6. Spider-Man 3 (2007)
PG-13 | 139 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
A strange black entity from another world bonds with Peter Parker and causes inner turmoil as he contends with new villains, temptations, and revenge.
Votes: 421,103 | Gross: $336.53M
This film was pretty silly, and the worst of the series by far. But it was still pretty fun to watch, and the symbiote is pretty cool. Cons: Peter's crappy apartment. He couldn't at least make it look a bit nicer? Emo Peter Mary Jane (as always, she is whiny) The subplot of how Ben died (Ben is why Peter became Spiderman, we want him to be sad and angry, not knowing that it wasn't his fault.) How venom pulls his face down when he talks Venom. (It should have been the astronaut guy from Spiderman 2, who got dumped by Mary Jane for Peter at the altar, who went into space, found the symbiote, and went back for revenge on Peter.)
7. Good Burger (1997)
PG | 95 min | Comedy, Family

Votes: 242,390 | Gross: $181.17M
This film is pretty suspenseful, has good special effects, no unlikeable characters (*cough* The Lost World) and the much needed and long overdue return of Sam Neill as Dr. Alan Grant. Like Independance Day or Jaws, if you ignore the plot holes, it is fun and pretty good.

R | 99 min | Crime, Horror, Mystery

This film was a really unnerving psychological thriller. It was a departure from the typical gore, but it really made me feel like this guy was getting worse than chains.

Not Rated | 92 min | Action, Drama, Family
