Everyone has those films that they’re too embarrased to admit they like, because well, they suck. Still we watch them over and over again, and in a way for us they’ve reached a classic status. Here’s a few of mine.
The Mask (1994)
THAT’S A SPICY MEATBALL!
It’s very quotable in a ‘if-you-want-to-be-seen-as-a-dork’ kind of way. It completes the Jim Carrey mid-90’s trifecta of awesomness : The Mask – Dumb & Dumber – Ace Ventura : Pet Detective. It’s smoking!
Con Air (1997)
Put… the bunny… back… in the box.
For a film where most of the scenes are dedicated to Nicholas Cage’s hair weave blowing in the wind, Con Air is pretty epic. The cheesiest lines with some hardcore actors playing sleazbag characters with a twist of American pride – Voilà!
Fifth Element (1997)
Leeloo: Leeloo Dallas mul-ti-pass.
Korben Dallas: Yeah.
Korben Dallas: Yeah, multipass, she knows it’s a multipass. Leeloo Dallas. This is my wife.
It has characters called Korben Dallas, Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg, DJ Ruby Rhod and Leeloo. It’s directed by the Besson. It’s ridiculous, and amazing!
Snakes on a Plane (2006)
Enough is enough! I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!
There’s really not a thing wrong with this film. There are snakes on a plane. Samuel L. Jackson will kill the snakes. Also, mobsters and assassins are involved! And I have a girl crush on Julianna Margulies.
The 40-year-old Virgin (2005)
David: You know how I know you’re gay? You have a rainbow bumper sticker on your car that says, “I like it when balls are in my face.”
Cal: That’s gay?
TBH this might be my favourite comedy ever, it still cracks me up after 10 views. It’s offensive, rude, charming, childish and I’ve never liked a comedy as much.
