These movies aren’t guilty pleasures. They aren’t the movies you actively seek out, or suddenly crave in the middle of the night.
These are soft-serve movies that are comfort food in the middle of a lazy afternoon. They are sometimes background noise or movies to cook to. You might know all the words or know exactly when would be the best bathroom break. They are the movies you watch every single time you find it on TV, and they are wonderful in their own ways. Our friends over at Pajiba have lovingly compiled a list of their own similar movies as part of their “Hangover Theater” feature beginning with a favorite of mine, The Wedding Singer.
I am also a big fan of the kind of terrible/great movies A Knight’s Tale and The Mummy. And I would be remiss in failing to include a Persephone fav, Clue. Any other movies you’d like to add?
