Inspired by both the shame inducing CD thread (found here and a couple of new DVDs I picked up this past week.

For me, the title of most shame inducing DVD would be a tie between three titles:

-Superstar (the Molly Shannon SNL movie)
-The Pacifier (Vin Diesel in a Disney movie)
-Batman: The Movie (with Burt Ward and Adam Wast)

The Pacifier was surprizingly GOOD, but since I'm not a parent ...my friends give me a weird look when they see it in my collection.

WHat about everyone else?

Elektra. I bought it for The Lovely Mrs. Tracker. Neither had seen it, but she likes Jennifer Garner.

She doesn't like her enough to watch the film a second time though.

That would be One Night at McCool's (imdb.com). It was in a Wal-Mart bargain bin and my wife and I watched it as soon as we got home. Since then, not even our friends will borrow it.

The entire first season of the Anna Nicole Show. It was $6 at a thrift store and I was already delirious from all the XFL memorabilia they had there (yeah, it was in Stamford).

Although if anyone should be ashamed about this DVD, considering the trip to Vegas, it'd be Anna Nicole's lawyer.

I dunno. Taste is so fickle.

I have the Billy Jack collection - which I love but my 18 yr old thinks is terribly lame.

I have a very self-agrandizing Mary Tyler Moore special where everybody comes on to tell her what a genius she was. (it was on TV, but we missed it and we heard it was good, but it's terrible, but we paid like $19 for it....)

I have most (I am missing 15 right now) John Wayne films - and most of them are bad films.

Taste is so changeable

I know...but my girlfriend thought it was terribly lame, as, apparently, most of my co-workers.

I watched it three times over the weekend, and I'll probably watch it with the commentary from Ward/West next time.

I don't think anyone I know really understands why I own "Hamtaro: Volume 1" but I'm still upset the show hasn't been seen on Cartoon Network since October 2004.

The Godzilla movie with Matthew Broderick. I liked it more than most, but I haven't even opened it since I bought it.

Oh, and The Best of Backyard Wrestling- Backyard Babes.

I bought the original Batman just a few weeks back out of the $5.50 bin at Wal-Mart. I had to have it. I passed on it at Christmas and then couldn't find it.

Probably "Batman and Robin", considering how much I loathe it. But it came with the Anthology!

Runner up is probably "As Hard As The Rock", an unauthorized biography of The Rock. The title just looks, um, odd sitting amongst all my other DVDs.

Squirrel, please. I love this movie, and am not ashamed of owning it.

My own would have to go to "Showgirls". As a youth, I prayed for the day I could legally see Jessie from Saved By The Bell, totally naked. Even though I've watched it maybe once, it's a part of my teen years I need to have. The reason it's the most shameful DVD is because everytime I bring a girl over, and we try to decide what to watch, they always....well....let's just say girls aren't usually in favor of picking that one.

I discount my copy of "Wrestling Spermburpin' Hoebags 7" or whatever that is with Missy Hyatt and Sunny, simply because I have stashed that one away, and it never sees the light of day. Let's just pretend this little talk never happened, ok?

As for wrestling titles go, I own DREAM, the Dusty Roads collection with some horrible action from the Mike Graham promotion in the early 70s. (dusty tagging with a midget?)

As for regular films?
Love Object. Cant even begin to describe how bad this film is, OR:

A film called FLOUNDERING, which I think is a terrific, brilliant film, but since nobody has seen it, I always have to explain it, and that conversation NEVER goes well.

Oh, hey, I saw that...9 or 10 years ago, I guess...? I didn't like it much, but it's got some good people in it, so I can't wag my finger at you or anything.

As for me:

If I'm trying to impress a film buff with my collection, it's Point Break.

If I'm trying to convince someone that I'm cool, it's the "Thunderbirds" TV series box set.

If I'm showing off my wrestling collection, it's G.L.O.W.

Were this question asked anywhere else in the world, it would obviously be my extensive pro wrestling collection. Not so much on this board. (Although I'm sure to get a few shame points for "Lita: It Just Feels Right")

Otherwise, it's probably either the awful "Super Mario Brothers" live action movie (that I didn't even like when I was a kid, so I have no idea why I bought it) or "Cabin Boy" (which y'all can go fuck yourselves over because it's, like, the greatest movie in the world. You're one of them fancy lads, ain't cha?)

"Bad News Bears go to Japan". I bought the trilogy for $16.99 at BestBuy some months ago. The first movie and "Breaking Training" I love. The 3rd movie? Bleh!!! I guess they had to find a way to get rid of all the back inventory of that movie.

Could be worse. Do you have the novelization of the movie? (ahem)
