    I love Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure so much that I went to see the sequel, Bogus Journey in the theater.

    I also went to see Titanic four times in the theater and it wasn’t to see Kate Winslet naked. I cried each time I went.

    Move along now, nothing to see here.

       No shame on the Bill & Ted–I grew up with those movies and love them to this day.

      Crying in Titanic FOUR TIMES is a different story.  Wow.

    Cheesy sports movies with hideously predictable endings. Think ‘Youngblood,’ ‘Seabiscuit,’ ‘Visionquest,’ and the Walter Matthau ‘Bad News Bears.’ ONLY the Matthau one. Speaking of him, the ‘Grumpy Old Men’ movies, including the critically crapped on ‘Odd Couple 2’ and even ‘Out to Sea’ should be on this list. Anything with him and Jack Lemmon makes me laugh.

      How about the movie with Jack Lemon, Tony Curtis and Marilyn Monroe, was it Some Like it Hot?  Was Mathau in that?

    “Hero at Large” with John Ritter comes to mind. 

    • RichBeckman

      I do not just admit I like it, but I think it is a great movie.  Notting Hill.

      • You beat me to the punch Beckman…my wife and were sucked in again recently, and it is still better than good. One of my favorites.

        Next level of embarrassment: I liked Step Up so much, I drug my wife to Step Up 2 the Streets in the theater. It was pretty sweet.

    I’m generally a fan of John Cusack’s movies, and I think Kate Beckinsale is very attractive.  Those two lines of thought meet at the ugly crossroads that is the movie Serendipity.  It’s hot garbage, but I’ve seen it four or five times.

    Speaking of garbage, my wife and I watched “The Tourist” not too long ago. Truly awful.

      I remember an 80’s (I think) flick called My Chauffer. Hideously bad as cheap movies go but also made me pee my pants laughing.

      @Joe, nothing to be embarrassed about. I was getting my nails done a year or so ago and they have a TV there playing a variety of movies. When there are children in the salon they show a children’s movie, usually a cartoon, to be safe. They were showing the cartoon movie Bolt, and I started crying so hard the gal had to stop doing my nails to go find me a tissue. Even the little kid in there was looking at me like I was a loon!!!

    I”m watching spring training baseball on WGN, and it only took 45 seconds for Bob Brenly to say something annoying.

    • Gymjok

      Again, not embarrassed by what I like, but I guess it might be considered different for a guy to like romantic comedies. That’s one of the type of movies that I like.

    Am I the only person who liked the last Indiana Jones movie?

    • Indiana Jones and aliens don’t belong in the same movie.

    • I can’t say I liked it, but I have to say that the last Indiana Jones movie contained the best ‘Shia LeBeuf swinging from vines with monkeys’ scene of all time.

    “Author Author” starring Al Pacino, Dyan Cannon and Tuesday Weld and “True Confessions” starring Robert Duval and Robert DeNiro.  Critics didn’t seem to like either but I did.

    Disney’s Jungle Book, what a great cast of characters with Baloo the Bear leading the way. Loui Prima as King Loui, the greatest childrens movie that appeals to all.

      You’ve got to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, don’t mess with Mr. in-between.

    Cubs baseball is on the air!

    A quote of the CUbs web site from Rick Sutcliff, “”There aren’t any secrets,” Sutcliffe said “There’s the truth and the fact that this is a mess. To me, the chain of command was broke, people were going in different directions with no leadership. There’s leadership now.” We could of told him that.
