Guilty Pleasures - Cheesy Movies

Cheese Shop
The more cheese, the better.
I admit it. Cheesy movies get me every time. I went to see Clash of the Titans (the new one, not the old claymation version), and I was disappointed that it was actually a good movie. I guess I was expecting something less... polished, and I wanted cheese, dammit! Sometimes I just don't want a well-done movie. I want one that's so bad, it falls off the scale and ends up in awesomesauce. (Yeah, I just said awesomesauce. Whatcha gonna do about it?)

I love Starship Troopers for that very reason; it's deliciously cheesetastic. I haven't read the book and I'm afraid that if I do, it'll ruin the movie for me.

And my favorite cheesealicious movie of all time? Tank Girl. If you haven't seen Tank Girl, you're missing some epic dairy goodness. Lori Petty is fantastic and it's still my favorite film from Naomi Watts. Not to mention the crazy ninja kangaroo dog things and that awesome Cole Porter number. Go watch it, or I'll send the Rippers to get you! Puh-puh-puh-POW!!

What are some of your favorite cheeseamongous movies? Don't think you can hide behind your box-office superstars. I see that DVD peeking out of your dresser drawer. No, not that DVD! This is a PG-rated blog! The other one. Yeah, that one. You know you want to share. =)


  1. Great post, Samantha! First off, I love your use of the word cheeseamungus. ;)

    I've never been into cheesy cartoons or comedies, but I'm a sucker for romantic comedies (many of which load up on cheese. LOL. That sounded gross.) I also dig musicals, like LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, which may suit the category.

  2. Romantic comedies totally fit the cheese bill. I have a couple of those in my DVD case (just don't tell anyone. I always claim to hate girlie movies). ;)

  3. I can totally relate. Even though I'm a a movie snob, I can't stop watching "The Fifth Element"... And good call on "Starship Troopers"!

  4. Haha. I hate to admit this in public because it's totally embarrassing, but you know those Hallmark channel romance movies with the terrible acting . . . yeah, my husband frequently asks, "How can you watch that?"

  5. I am sure all the movies I love have a massive cheese factor. Rat Race is a one fave that we happily quote around here!

  6. One of the worst, cheesiest movies I've ever seen is Queen of Outer Space (1958) starring Zsa Zsa Gabor. It's so bad it's hilarious!
