Votes: 43,354 | Gross: $167.78M

For some reason this movie takes me to my happy place. It's not a particularly good film, but there's just this sincerity and innocence that draws me in and comforts me like a warm blanket. I kinda adore it.

Votes: 119,030 | Gross: $70.83M

I genuinely enjoy this film to this day. It's nowhere near quality entertainment, but it still makes me laugh.

10. P.S. I Love You (2007)

PG-13 | 126 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

39 Metascore

Director: Richard LaGravenese | Stars: Hilary Swank, Gerard Butler, Harry Connick Jr., Lisa Kudrow

Votes: 191,954 | Gross: $53.70M

The film has a beating heart and beautiful sense of grief. There's a pretty good film hidden inside P.S. I Love You, but it's under the thick layers of Nancy Meyersesque sappiness and emotional manipulation. Overall it's one of the better "chick-flicks" out there.

11. The Librarian: Quest for the Spear (2004 TV Movie)

Not Rated | 92 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

A bookworm becomes the librarian. Same night a magical spear gets stolen and he's off to get some real life experience around the globe on his quest for the spear - starting with being thrown off a plane over Amazonas by his cute helper.

Director: Peter Winther | Stars: Noah Wyle, Sonya Walger, Bob Newhart, Kyle MacLachlan

Votes: 17,110

Noah Wyle makes this movie one of the most fun and wholesome campy Indiana Jones ripoffs out there.

12. Constantine (2005)

R | 121 min | Action, Fantasy, Horror

50 Metascore

Supernatural exorcist and demonologist John Constantine helps a policewoman prove her sister's death was not a suicide, but something more.

Director: Francis Lawrence | Stars: Keanu Reeves, Rachel Weisz, Djimon Hounsou, Shia LaBeouf

Votes: 280,651 | Gross: $75.98M

Around the time it came out I used to think Constantine was the coolest film ever, but after rewatching it recently it's far from it. It's still a decent flick with a refreshingly dour sense of tone and style and a fantastic over-the-top performance by Stormare. I still love it nostalgically, also Rachel Weisz is just drop-dead gorgeous in this movie.

13. Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday the Thirteenth (2000 Video)

R | 86 min | Comedy

A reporter investigates a series of murders, dubbed the Spring Break Massacre, which leads to further mayhem.

Director: John Blanchard | Stars: Aimee Graham, Chris Palermo, Kim Greist, Harley Cross

Votes: 9,969

TV-14 | 42 min | Drama, Fantasy, Mystery

Three sisters discover their destiny, to battle against the forces of evil, using their witchcraft. They are the Charmed Ones.

Stars: Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Brian Krause, Rose McGowan

Votes: 69,574

Another girly tv show. Can't help it I was raised by two women (my mother and my sister) so I watched a lot of this crap and seen pretty much every episode I recon. I'm not exactly the proudest man for liking this series, but damn it, the title does not lie, Charmed IS charming as hell.

15. The Hot Chick (2002)

PG-13 | 104 min | Comedy, Fantasy

29 Metascore

An attractive and popular teenager, who is mean-spirited toward others, finds herself in the body of an older man, and must find a way to get back to her original body.

Director: Tom Brady | Stars: Rob Schneider, Rachel McAdams, Anna Faris, Matthew Lawrence

Votes: 85,090 | Gross: $35.08M

Dumb fun from the early 2000s. It's kinda racist, misogynistic and crude (like most comedies at the time), but I still think it's pretty funny and Schneider paired with Anna Faris is just delightful.

16. Ghost Adventures (2008– )

TV-PG | 45 min | History, Sci-Fi, Thriller

Zak Bagans, Aaron Goodwin, Billy Tolley, and Jay Wasley investigate the scariest, most notorious, haunted places in the world.

Stars: Zak Bagans, Aaron Goodwin, Billy Tolley, Jay Wasley

Votes: 7,295

I'm a total skeptic, but it is fun to pretend. Also, Bagans and the crew, along with the production, sell the show really well.

17. Double Dragon (1994)

Two brothers have half of a powerful ancient Chinese talisman. An evil gang leader has the other half, and determines to get the brothers' half and have a complete medallion so he can gain absolute power.

A family that has faced hardship has their dilapidated house completely rebuilt while they are away on vacation for a week.

Stars: Ty Pennington, Paul DiMeo, Michael Moloney, Tracy Hutson

Votes: 4,319

SooOOoo sappy and cheesy, I love it. It always made me either enviously angry or filled with empathy and compassion. Quite the emotional rollercoaster.

20. Thir13en Ghosts (2001)

R | 91 min | Horror

30 Metascore

When Cyrus Kriticos, a very rich collector of unique things dies, he leaves it all to his nephew and his family. All including his house, his fortune, and his malicious collection of ghosts!

Director: Steve Beck | Stars: Tony Shalhoub, Shannon Elizabeth, Embeth Davidtz, Matthew Lillard

Votes: 74,279 | Gross: $41.87M

Thir13en Ghosts used to scare the living sh!t out of me as a child. It's a solid cheesy creature feature, with cool "ghost" designs and a fun lore behind them, that has a slight throwback feel to it. It's an ideal watch for Halloween.

21. The Mummy Returns (2001)

PG-13 | 130 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

48 Metascore

The mummified body of Imhotep is shipped to a museum in London, where he once again wakes and begins his campaign of rage and terror.

Director: Stephen Sommers | Stars: Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, John Hannah, Arnold Vosloo

Votes: 285,334 | Gross: $202.02M

The first movie is a solid adventure movie, but this second installment goes above and beyond with its quirky characters and cheesy humour, and don't get me started on the horrible CGI. It's a bit too goofy for its own good, but I still enjoy The Mummy Returns and nostalgically am quite fond of it.

22. You Don't Mess with the Zohan (2008)

PG-13 | 113 min | Comedy

54 Metascore

An Israeli Special Forces Soldier fakes his death so he can re-emerge in New York City as a hair stylist.

Votes: 178,408 | Gross: $100.02M

23. Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)

PG | 142 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

54 Metascore

Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé Amidala, while Obi-Wan Kenobi investigates an assassination attempt on the senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.

Director: George Lucas | Stars: Hayden Christensen, Natalie Portman, Ewan McGregor, Christopher Lee

Votes: 578,206 | Gross: $310.68M

Attack of the Clones in my opinion is an improvement over The Phantom Menace. It has a few redeeming qualities: some enjoyable action pieces (the flying "car" chase I actually quite like) and a few glimmers of actually decent filmmaking (Anakin's revenge for his mother is honestly a great scene). BUT it's still a shitty movie, so my love for it can be purely blamed on nostalgia.

24. Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)

PG | 136 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

51 Metascore

Two Jedi escape a hostile blockade to find allies and come across a young boy who may bring balance to the Force, but the long dormant Sith resurface to claim their old glory.

Director: George Lucas | Stars: Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson, Natalie Portman, Jake Lloyd

Votes: 657,743 | Gross: $474.54M

I loved it as a child. My father and I watched it a thousand times on VHS. Unfortunately I have no idea why we liked it so much, it's a baaaad movie, though the score stands out as the absolute best part about the film.

25. Relic Hunter (1999–2002)

TV-14 | 60 min | Fantasy, Mystery, Adventure

Sydney Fox is a university professor and black belt who globe-trots after lost, stolen and rumored to exist artifacts and antiquities.

Stars: Tia Carrere, Christien Anholt, Lindy Booth, Tanja Reichert

Votes: 5,486

Used to watch it with my sister (along with Xena) every afternoon after school. It's hammy and cheesy, but it's very entertaining. The two leads, Sydney and Nigel, are a lot of fun and the actors have a wonderful chemistry. It's pretty fun.

26. Halloween (2007)

R | 109 min | Horror

47 Metascore

After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution and immediately returns to Haddonfield to find his baby sister, Laurie.

Director: Rob Zombie | Stars: Scout Taylor-Compton, Malcolm McDowell, Tyler Mane, Brad Dourif

Votes: 102,792 | Gross: $58.27M

Zombie's Halloween was actually my introduction to the franchise (or was it H20, I don't remember), so it kinda has a special place in my heart. Overall it's an ok remake, though it kinda destroys the original's spirit, but makes I guess it makes up for it in fun kills.

27. Grown Ups (I) (2010)

PG-13 | 102 min | Comedy

30 Metascore

After their high school basketball coach passes away, five good friends and former teammates reunite for a Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Director: Dennis Dugan | Stars: Adam Sandler, Salma Hayek, Kevin James, Chris Rock

Votes: 212,136 | Gross: $162.00M

The lack of effort put into this movie is quite deplorable. I kinda hate myself for it, but I really do enjoy Grown Ups, as crude, sexist and dumb it is, I just can't help it.

28. Spy Kids (2001)

PG | 88 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

71 Metascore

The children of secret-agent parents must save them from danger.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Alexa PenaVega, Daryl Sabara, Antonio Banderas, Carla Gugino

Votes: 100,201 | Gross: $112.72M

I used to love it. Spy Kids has a wonderful emphasis on creativity and childlike imagination. It's not good, but it has a great cast and still holds up as a decent family film.

29. Underworld (2003)

R | 121 min | Action, Fantasy, Thriller

42 Metascore

Selene, a vampire warrior, is entrenched in a conflict between vampires and werewolves, while falling in love with Michael, a human who is sought by werewolves for unknown reasons.

Votes: 240,404 | Gross: $51.97M
