You may like to pretend you love high brow culture, art films and fine dining but deep down, we know you just want to curl up and watch some teenage high school shlock. The truth is out so you might as well admit it. And now we know what your ultimate go to guilty pleasure films are thanks to our recent poll in honour of our Guilty Pleasure Cinema Party showing ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’ on August 25 at The Troxy. The results are in and we can reveal your top five. Drumroll…
Hair flicking, incredible 90’s short skirts, plaid, dreamy Josh, and the awesomeness that was Cher Horowitz. What’s not to love?!
I think we all learn’t something from Cher’s wise words…
and who could forget Tai (RIP Brittany Murphy)?!
A deserving winner.
#2 Dirty Dancing
In at number 2, the film to inspire a generation of dangerous drunken lifts, watermelon carrying and no babies being put in corners.
Even Ryan Gosling loves Dirty Dancing.
Still gets me every time *sob*
#3 Mean Girls
We love 30 Rock, but surely this is Tina Fey’s finest work? Too many good quotes to mention. So many in fact that the Prince Charles Cinema are screening a Mean Girls Quotealong on September 8. Here’s a few to get you started.
#4 Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Being a high school truant never looked so much fun. Twist and shout, and remember; ‘Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.’ Wise words.
#5 Breakfast Club
You couldn’t forget about them if you tried. The Brat Pack’s finest work (in my humble opinion), The Breakfast Club is a beautiful bonding of high school misfits with some 80s dancing, romance make overs and tricks with lipstick thrown in for good measure.
