My Favorite Embarrassing Movies


Jasmine lives a life full of love, adventure and school in Long Beach, CA. Follow her exploits over at An Experiment in Poverty.

I think I have pretty decent taste in films for the most part, but Ialso have a secret collection of DVDs that I'm ashamed to admit towatching. They're mostly pre-teen juvenile stuff. I'm 27! I shouldn'tbe watching things starring Hilary Duff, but they entertain me forsome reason. I'm not sure why I'm sharing my shame in public. I guessI'm hoping someone will validate my sometimes awful taste in movies.Here are my most embarrassing favorites:

1. The Lizzie McGuire Movie
I swear I tear up a bit when she sings at the end on stage in Rome. Ithink I actually saw this in the theatres. Oh dear.

2. Center Stage
I'm almost not even embarrassed by this one. Sure the acting's bad,but the dancing is terrific!

3. Au Pair 1 & 2
These are probably the worst in the pacl. They're MADE FOR TV forcrying out loud!

4. Avonlea: Season One
I love a good moral of the story with a Canadian accent.

5. What A Girl Wants
I can't help it! I think Amanda Bynes is sweet!

What movies do you hide in the back of your DVD collection?

I actually saw The Lizzie McGuire movie yesterday, haha! I'm seventeen, and I absolutely love teen/chick flicks. I think I'll still love them and the stars in them too (Lindsay Lohan, Hilary Duff and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen included) when I'm about eighty. Show your teen flicks proudly, they make you feel good :D

Don't be ashamed of Amanda Bynes! Another Bynes flick, "She's the Man", is not only a hilarious Shakespeare knock-off, it has amazing one-liners, tampons up the nose and CHANNING TATUM. Flaunt it, girl, flaunt it! :)

LOOOOOOOVE Avonlea too! Really far from embarassing--although my husband looked at me like I was insane when it arrived again from Netflix.

I love Bring it On and all of the sequels. While I don't own them, I do faithfully watch them every time they are on TV.

Hey, I'm not embarrassed about Center Stage (lol) or Save the Last Dance. I suppose he Princess Diaries and the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants aren't my best moments. :)
Okay Maire, the Bring it On sequels is a good one for this list, those look so bad! But maybe so bad it's good.

There is NO shame in loving Center Stage! Sweet sweat.

As a Canadian, I heartily approve the 'Avonlea' selection!! I've got the first Anne of Green Gables in mine. Favourite cheesy movie that I watch when I'm feeling down: You've Got Mail, with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

Hi, I chanced upon your blog this morning (Yes and Yes), I forget how. : ) I saw this link and thought, wow secret society of list addicts... I am not alone. :p

Anyway, this comment is 3 months late but yeah, I love the Anne of Green Gables series, too (and I'm 25, heh)! I only got to watch the movies online 'cause I don't know where I can find copies here. But I read the books. : ) I'll be following your blogs from now on. : )

Haven't seen most of these but, dude, LOVE the first two! My family has a tradition of watching Center Stage every Thanksgiving. Well. My mom, sister and I -- my dad hides until it's over.
