'guilty pleasure' films

'guilty pleasure' films
  an escapist film that engenders low expectations (usually an awful B-movie or a critically-lambasted film) that the public enjoys despite or, more likely, because of its flaws; these are often quite personal film choices that are sometimes embarrassing to admit. Universally-loved 'guilty pleasure' films become cult films. See also flop and B-movie
  Examples: Teen movies, various horror films, sappy romances, The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975), Kentucky Fried Movie (1977), Flash Gordon (1980), Supergirl (1984), Cocktail (1988), Gamera: The Guardian of the Universe (1995), Showgirls (1996), William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet (1996), Anaconda (1997), Wild Things (1998), and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)
