Dirty Little Top Ten Movie?


Coal Miner's Daughter is mine.
A dirty little top ten movie is a movie that if stumbled upon while surfing the channels, would make you drop everything and watch it with a giant grin. But you wouldn't care to admit it, and should someone walk in the room, you'd just as quickly shut it off.

Confession: I just watched the entirety of The Coal Miner's Daughter. On youtube. In parts. Low res parts.
This despite the dvd being in the other room.
Upon discovery, Evan ribbed me about my obsession, and it prompted a question:
How often are our top ten movie lists edited for our social resumes?: "Oh yes, I was deeply moved by Citizen Kane." How many of our touted top movies are movies selected to influence one's perception of our cultural sophistication, wit or taste?
With that, I pose a question to you: what's your dirty little top ten movie?
And while we're on the topic of dirty little secrets, I'll admit that I spent hours and hours trying to sing the above song just like Sissy.

LOL. I didn't know the movie, went to youtube, and when a clip started playing, my husband nearly jumped out of his skin.

He was also a big fan.

Did you see this?

When I finally got around to watching the much acclaimed "Citizen Kane", my reaction was: three hoooouuurs?!

Not dirty at all, but it still stops me when I should be doing other things-Ferris Bueller's day off-what can I say. Juvenile, not vulgar and it still makes me smile.

Superstar… as in, the Molly Shannon SNL spinoff about Mary Katherine Gallagher. (I own 3 copies on DVD, 1 on VHS, and have watched it upwards of 100 times… Low point.)

P.S. Shhhhhh
