Dirty Dancing: The movie every girl in high school loved. I have no idea why I like this movie. My wife doesn't even like it. But I do. Maybe its because I've seen it enough to know better than to put Baby in a corner...
The Little Mermaid: This is my favorite Disney movie, even though I'm well aware there are much better films in the catalog (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King). Ariel's yearning to belong always gets to me. Also, she's pretty hot for someone who's half fish.
Home Alone: For whatever reason, I can't help watching this every Christmas.
Point Break: The Swayze makes another appearance on this list* with my favorite awful action movie from a time replete with them. Patrick Swayze as an armchair Zen-spewing leader of a surfer gang that robs banks wearing rubber masks of former Presidents? Keanu Reeves as a wooden FBI agent romancing Lori Petty while falling under the Swayze's sway? Gary Busey eating meatball sandwiches? Sign me up!
Kindergarten Cop: Another terribly awesome gem from the golden age of action movies. Arnold barely kills anyone, the kids are annoying as hell, and the jokes aren't funny, but I love it. Maybe it's because while the jokes aren't funny, Arnold's delivery of them is. My dad and I, like many others, have gotten far too many unintentional laughs over the years from "it's not ah tumah!" alone. And Arnold's partner in the movie (Pamela Reed) cracks me up.
Titanic: The history buff adult in me tells me I like this movie because of its painstaking recreation of the ship and the feel of the era in which it sailed. The 17-year-old guy in me tells me I like this movie because of the spectacle of the sinking and the awesome effects displayed therein. The 14-year-old girl in me tells me I like it because of the doomed romance. I never know who is enjoying it at any given moment, but the movie does a great job of appealingto all three at once.
*I don't know who that says more about: me, or the Swayze.
