MamaPop Video Roundtable: The Bad Movies We Love Edition

Patrick_Swayze How often have you sat through some three-hour piece of Winslet-stuffed Oscar bait and found yourself bored silly by the airless dramatics dying onscreen?  Are you unconvinced that cinematic greatness equals Nicole Kidman putting on an ugly nose and walking into a river?  Then come join the writers of MamaPop as we celebrate the crappy movies that we secretly love.

This week's video is slightly NSFW. Mild violence and a flash of some really hilarious nudity.

I love you people. Going to watch it for the fourth freaking time.


ROCK STAR!!! Marky Mark & Jennifer Aniston. STEAL DRAGON!!! Need I say more? The whole thing screams, "this is a joke, right?!" I love it. I could watch it all the time.


foradifferentkindofgirl (fadkog)

I long ago adopted the lessons of Road House as my mantra. Damn right pain don't hurt.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

I don't think I would talk to ANYONE that way and certainly no one with cut off sleeves.

Snarky Amber

I love us.

Aidan, we need an outtake reel, though, because the stuff that's on the cutting room floor is equally brilliant as what made the cut. MAMAPOP ROUNDTABLE SPECIAL EDITION DVD WITH TWO HOURS OF NEVER BEFORE SEEN FOOTAGE! Make it happen.


Starship Troopers: It Has A Busey.

Motherbumper FTW!


What Snarky Amber said. Maybe that's the last Roundtable of the year? MamaPop Roundtable: From The Cutting Room Floor!


Awesome job! My new favourite bad movie is Girls Just Want to Have Fun with Helen Hunt and Shannen Doherty. Brilliance. I forgot about Rockstar. I used to love that movie.


From the cutting room floor can include those of us (ahem, Amber, Amy, me,) who didn't make the Shakira cut? B/c I'm not bitter, AT ALL.


I'm so proud of Amy for recognizing the greatness of Godfather III. My husband is one of those Godfather purists and won't watch it, but I could mumble Sophia Coppola's dialogue all the live long day. First cousin love FTW!


The Meloni Baloney Pony. I can't talk enough about it. Hey, wait, where are you going???


Let's not forget Big Trouble in Little China. Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, a bunch of Chinese guys, AWESOME special effects. It's a classic!


My husband just laughed out loud at the Palinode. And then said he has every one of the movies mentioned on DVD.

We totally do.

And Grease 2...I walked down the aisle at my wedding to my sister singing "Girl for all Seasons." Yep.


Centerstage! I have to watch it whenever it's on, though I haven't bought it, yet. Ballet! Drama!

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

The thing about Flash is that he saved every one of us.

OMFG. I saw Showgirls opening night in the theatre. Picture it: me, my friend, and what seemed like hundreds of horny guys. The theatre even had a separate line up for the movie so we appeared singled out for our particular kind of degeneration. And I do not regret a moment of seeing that in the theatre, not one shining Ver-sace moment. That is a delicious bad movie classic. Also: I saw Starship Troopers in the theatre. Multiple times. I'm shameless. SHAMELESS.

Suzy Q

I'm totally with kimm on "Center Stage." HAVE to watch it whenever it's on, like...just the other day. Jodie Sawyer!

I also second whichever one of you (and hey, your names would be helpful on the videos, it's not like all of you are as recognizable as Paris Hilton) mentioned that TV movie with the luminol. That totally freaked me out the first time I saw it! Also, the second and third and 12th times. That scene is the best/worst!


@suzy q, the luminol clip was me. I don't know what's the best part about that movie, the luminal scene, Valerie Bertanelli's bangs, or Meloni's wifebeater t shirt. All I know is that "In a Child's Name" is THE BEST TV MOVIE OF ALL TIME, OMG.

Redneck Mommy

Roadhouse, Starship Troopers and Three Amigos. It's the top of the movie pinnacle baby. It doesn't get any better than that.

Well it could. But only if they each featured John Wayne in them.


Can I tell you how much I love all of you? Seriously? I love all of you. If I could have a collective MamaPop baby I would, 'm just sayin'.


I met the guy that "rock star" was written about. I know, I know. He lives in the Akron, Ohio area.
I don't think I need to say anything else.


Oh I love In a Child's Name! The luminol scene is burned into my brain!!! I'm just so glad the Meloni with mullet and wifebeater isn't the one I thought it was.

Daffodil Campbell

Bravo. Bra-fucking-vo. Brilliant. I want the complete unedited DVD box set for Christmas.
