Does anybody remember "THEM!" from 1954?

I was nine years old then and I BEGGED my dad to take me and a bunch of kids to see it for my birthday. Twenty minutes into the film I was BEGGING him to take me home! I was petrified! He refused, we stayed and watched the whole film. I cringed on the floor of the car all the way home. I didn't sleep for weeks, fearing the giant ants were going to come for me.

It's all my father's fault that I've grown up to be the sick and twisted person I am today.

And I still love watching that goofy old film.

My husband was watching Ice Age about a year or so ago - I went into "his" room and was stupefied he was watching animated kid's movie. I check to see if maybe he was asleep - he wasn't - he was all teary-eyed and told me to GET OUT so he wouldn't miss his favorite part

I must admit I like Cocktail (Tom Cruise and somebody)
Dirty Dancing
Pretty Woman
There's more, I just can't remember.

I remember that movie, Buck! I don't remember having that reaction, though.

The movie content I'm not embarrassed about--just the number of times that I have watched them--I really need to get a life when I can say the dialogue before the actors:

Sense and Sensibility: the Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet version
An Officer and a Gentleman
Terms of Endearment
Any Robin William's special
Pretty Woman
Erin Brokovich

In this sense, "Stand By Me" and "A Fish Called Wanda" for me

that was a great old campy sci-fi. the ants eat sugar that was irradiated, and grow to 50 feet!

as far as embarrassed goes, dw makes fun of me a lot for liking "legally blonde", and "pleasantville".
i just like reese witherspoon.

as far as seeing a movie repetitively: "the raiders of the lost ark" was playing when i was a kid working as an usher in a movie theatre. i must have seen it 500 times. i can do every line from the movie, almost as well as harrison ford.

Of all the movies that have ever been made, his first choice is Tron?!? I asked him and he said he loves that movie, but don't tell any of his friends...

I have to admit I've watched National Lampoons Christmas Vacation at least 10 times!

So what movies are you embarrassed to admit you like?
Love that movie- watch it every Christmas- its part of the holiday now !
