Live Poll: IMDb Poll Board Guilty Pleasures

This is a poll board poll. Poll authors and poll commentators can contribute by chosing a film. Please let me know, which movie is your guilty pleasure? It can be a bad or weird film that you really like, but you feel a little embarrassed about it.

I started the poll suggestion "IMDb Poll Board Worst Movies".
Link: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-imdb-poll-board-worst-movies
But I think it's good to create this counterpart poll. Some movies are bad, but they can be entertaining. Maybe it feels awkward to answer this question, but it would be a fun poll to make! So please contribute!

My list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls028373872/?ref_=otl_2

Poll description:
A guilty pleasure is something, such as a film, that someone enjoys despite the feeling that it is not generally held in high regard, or is seen as unusual or weird.

The IMDb poll board members have revealed their guilty pleasures. Which movie do you think is the most entertaining? Or, which one do you like to see?

Hoekkie,

For your consideration:
Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959)

The film is truly awful but has a certain slap-dash charm and enthusiasm.

I've posted several reactions in this thread, but they are all gone. Strange...
Thanks for your contribution!
It's in the list.

Plan 9 was the first Ed Wood film, I have seen. I enjoyed it enough to search for the rest of Wood's feature films, and I consider him one of my favorite film directors.  However I consider it the weakest of Wood's films.

There are some decent scenes and characters in Plan 9, but the motivation of the Aliens never made any sense and serves as a giant plot hole. They supposedly want to prevent humanity from inventing " "Solaronite", a substance that has the effect of exploding "sunlight molecules"." , because they feel humans will end up destroying the universee itself. 

And to accomplish that goal, do the Aliens target scientists contacting weapons research, or military and political leaders who fund the experiments? No, they harass commercial flight piots, housewives, and low-level cops. This Plan would not work, whatever the various characters choose to do about it.

CRIME SPREE, I just love that film.

For me, movies like "Plan 9" or "The Room" have reached such a cult status that they became movies to watch, to be aware of, of course they can become guilty pleasures if someone watch them on a regular basis, I wouldn't think about rewatching any of them.  Still, for me a guilty pleasure must be that film no one heard about and yet you just love it and can watch it over and over again.

Here's a clip from that film:

and Depardieu is just hilarious in that film!

FYC: Barb Wire (1996)

I remember watching this one on television when I was 10 or 11.
I think I couldn't close my mouth throughout the whole movie.  :D

Shoot 'Em Up (2007) would be closest to fitting the description, as it is the only one I feel a bit guilty for enjoying it as much as I do. It actually isn't IMDb rated that low, but does have the lowest Meta Critic score of my top five. Point of No Return (1993), Z for Zachariah (2015) Dick (1999), Vanity Fair (2004) would round out my top five for largest disparity between how I rate them and how they are rated by other IMDb users.
