Blogathon: Guilty Pleasure Movies

Following on from some wonderful posts on Let’s Go To The Movies and Flick Chicks, I’m taking part in Flick Chicks’ blogathon of guilty pleasure movies. This is open to all, but there are some rules to follow…

1 – You can choose and discuss as many or as few movies as you like. We both did a Top 10, but you can just choose 1 movie if you like. Just tell us a bit about the movie and why you like it so much.

2 – Please create a new post for our Blogathon, rather than linking an old post you may have already done.
3 – Please include our Blogathon Banner anywhere in your post
4 – The deadline for entries is Sunday, 31st August, so there’s plenty of time!
So here are my guilty pleasure movies:

1. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954)

I talk about this film so much, I just love it, but I feel like it isn’t as well-known as it should be. Set in 1850’s Oregon, the eldest of seven brothers, Adam Pontipee, goes to town with the promise of bringing back a wife. When he succeeds, his brothers aim to follow in hiss footsteps, with some hilarious consequences and cracking music and dancing.

2. Zoom: Academy for Superheroes (2006)

This is often shown on TV during Sunday afternoons when the broadcasters know most people will be busy with something else, and even though it’s not Tim Allen’s best film, some parts of it are rather interesting. He stars as Jack, a retired superhero who is hired to train four children with superpowers  to defeat his evil brother Connor.

3. Legally Blonde (2001)

Reese Witherspoon stars as Elle Woods, a sorority queen dumped by her boyfriend for not being serious enough. To win him back, she follows him into Harvard Law School where she meets his new fiancée, Vivian. This film has some witty one-liners and some great characters.

4. Emma (TV movie 1996)

This is my favourite adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, but is sometimes overlooked in favour of the Gwyneth Paltrow version released the same year. This one stars Kate Beckinsale as the eager matchmaker who vows she will never marry, and Mark Strong as Mr Knightly, her friend and brother-in-law.
