I like Titanic and Dirty Dancing, too.
I liked Titanic because it was about the HMS Titanic (which fascinates me) and I loved the period costume. I think both Kate Winslet and Leo di Caprio are much more capable actors than the storyline made them out to be (I mean, the middle third of the movie consisted of exactly two lines - "Jack!" "Rose!" - Lather. Rinse. Repeat), because they've both done way better work, but the special effects were stunning, the costumes were great, and I STILL want her dresses, dangit.
Dirty Dancing was the movie every girl in my seventh-grade class swooned over, because of Patrick Swayze, but I just thought the dancing was cool (my aunt is a dancer - dancing is nothing new to me). And it spawned the unfortunate fashion disaster of every girl in my middle school going around in knee-length Levi's cut-offs folded at the knee, worn with white Keds sneakers. Including me. *guilty look*
I like "Maury," as in the TV talk show. I don't know what it is. I just love that show, especially the ones where they test the guys for paternity and it turns out the mother is wrong and she has to start all over again. I don't know why I find that so entertaining.
The movie Friday and its sequels. I'm not one for rap or hip-hop music or culture, but there's something deeply amusing (and very lowbrow) about those movies, much along the same lines as the Cheech & Chong movies, which I also enjoy.
Teen movies, like Cruel Intentions or Bring It On. Don't even ask.
E's "True Hollywood Story."
"One Tree Hill." I haven't watched it in a while, but it's about as soapy as soaps get. It's worse than "Dawson's Creek." Waaaaaaay worse. And I love it!
As far as books...hmmmm...I try to stay above-board with those, having been an English major, but I can't resist a good trashy Jackie Collins novel every once in a while.
