What's Buzzworthy? Guilty-Pleasure '80s Movies

What's Buzzworthy? Guilty-Pleasure '80s Movies

Today, I launched a new feature on BuzzSugar called Defend This, where I ask you guys to justify your so-bad-it's-good fixations. So I thought I'd devote this week's Buzzworthy challenge to guilty pleasure '80s movies. My top pick has got to be Mannequin, starring Andrew McCarthy, Kim Cattrall, and, of course, Estelle Getty. I rented it so often as a kid that my parents often felt the need to remind me that most people prefer to rent movies they haven't seen. (A close second: Teen Witch.)

Now, tell me what woefully bad '80s movies you love. Just find them on the Web, bookmark them as Buzzworthy, and tag or title your choices with the phrase "Bad '80s movies." Then, I'll post the readers' favorites next Wednesday.

To find out how to create a Buzzworthy bookmark,

Don't worry: TeamSugar makes it easy to bookmark and capture anything on the Web that you consider "Buzzworthy." If you already have a "That's Fab" button on your browser's tool bar, you can use that to bookmark your Buzzworthy items. If you don't have the TeamSugar bookmarking button on your toolbar, you can learn how to get it by watching this video.

I might be able to top this with "My Tutor", lol. A story of a rich kid, who's Dad hires a tutor, who is a pretty blonde of course. And boy does he get educated. I don't believe there's anyone notable in it at all. ------------------------------------------------------ Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. — Albert Einstein

My appologies for the above lack of a comment. Hope it gets deleted. My guilty pleasure movie is Heathers. Oooh. Love it. :) "If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you." -Oscar Wilde

Love this week's theme. Nothing like recalling the 80s for a good laugh and a heavy dose of nostalgia!
