Let’s be honest. We all have that particular film that we secretly love and watch repeatedly while the film itself is not considered remarkable. So, I made a list of my own top 10 “guilty pleasure” films. I hope you enjoy and here it is:
10. The Nanny Diaries (2007) | Director: Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini
IMDb rating: 6
IMDb synopsis: A college graduate goes to work as a nanny for a rich New York family. Ensconced in their home, she has to juggle their dysfunction, a new romance, and the spoiled brat in her charge.
> I saw this film out of curiosity. But I actually really liked it. It’s simple and the plot was not complex at all. The way the film told the story was very unique with the narration and stuff. The film also set in New York. I always wanted to go to New York so it’s kinda fun to see the city through this film. Also, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson was such a lovely pair.
9. Miss Congeniality (2000) | Director: Donald Petrie
IMDb rating: 6
IMDb synopsis: An FBI agent must go undercover in the Miss United States beauty pageant to prevent a group from bombing the event.
> This film was such a great comedy. Although it was very predictable from the beginning, but it was hilarious and entertaining. My favorite part was the transformation of Sandra Bullock’s character from a messy female FBI agent into a gorgeous beauty pageant contestant. Bullock herself delivered a wonderful performance. This isn’t the kind of film you watch for the plot, but for the fun of it.
8. EuroTrip (2004) | Director: Jeff Schaffer
IMDb rating: 6.5
IMDb synopsis: Dumped by his girlfriend, a high school grad decides to embark on an overseas adventure in Europe with his friends.
> From the moment the film started until it ended, I laughed uncontrollably. It’s not a masterpiece but it’s genuinely funny. Anyone who has seen this film must know that awesome song Scotty Doesn’t Know. I had that song as my ringtone for months. It’s weirdly addictive. There were also some unexpected cameos from Matt Damon, David Hasselhoff, Lucy Lawless, and so on.
7. Twilight (2008) | Director: Catherine Hardwicke
IMDb rating : 5.3
IMDb synopsis: A teenage girl risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire.
> I’ve read the Twilight books although not all of them. I was 18 when I read Twilight and I was so disgustingly in love with Edward Cullen. Yes, guilty as charged. I think this film was good and Robert Pattinson looked pretty amazing as Edward. And I loved the soundtracks so much. Those were great songs. But then the sequels came out and they’re all garbage (sorry).
