And Liam also sounded more Scottish than Mel... My favorite part, was where Rob's brother dies. Man he was a whiney little screw up!

Oh man... I have so many!

The interplay in the car between Gene Hackman and his movie ex-wife, Joanna Cassidy in "The Package":

Gene: So, are ya still seeing that swab jockey?
Joanna: If you mean Commander (&^%(*&^%$... sometimes.
Gene: You living alone?
Joanna: Sometimes.
Gene: What's that supposed to mean?
Joanna: It means sometimes I live alone and sometimes I don't.
Gene: Well you sound like you're jumping in and out men's beds!
Joanna: Mind you own P's and Q's!
Gene (Laughs) Oh that's a good one!
Joanna: You never ask me how my career's going!
Gene: How's your career?
Joanna: Or my health!
Gene: How's your health?

You have to see how Hackman delivers his lines. Cracks me up every time. He's unreal. And, of course, Steve McQueen in "The Towering Inferno":

One of his Firemen has acrophobia and is scared to repel down the elevator shaft. McQueen says to him: "Then you go first. That way if you get scared and fall, you won't take any of us with you."

Ahhh... the movies. If I have more that come to mind I will post 'em.

Stanley

"You can't fight in the war room!" President (If I remember correctly) Peter Sellers in Kubrick"s Dr. Strangelove or "How I learned to love the bomb."

I would say that in the case of braveheart extreme poetic lisence was used , there were basic truths like his wife was killed in the town of Lanark where they lived (which is where i was born and still live) ,that he was hung drawn and quartered and the victors of the battles stirling bridge falkirk and bannockburn

The ruins of the church where he married his wife in secret still stand today. And at the bottom of Lanark Highstreet there is a monument where his house stood. Its a nice little town, if you ever find yourself in Scotland you should go and see it.

My knowledge of the real Rob Roy isn't so good and I can't remember the film too well but I do remember not really liking it. I was only 14 when I saw it back in 95 so I should probably give it another go.

Hey, some of these scenes you guys are mentioning aren't all that embarassing! This is supposed to be "all the bits we shouldn't love, but do anyway." Kubrick and Kurosawa films don't exactly fall into that category -- love those without feeling embarassed! Marco was asking for cheesy moments to the extreme, that you can fess up to actually liking.

Kudos to Lorinda for tagging one of the schmaltziest Ron Howard moments ever to be printed on celluloid in recent history. If I were to admit to a favorite guilty pleasure, it would have to be the exact scene she described in Apollo 13. It's not as if we don't know how it'll turn out... everybody knows going in that our astros returned to Earth safe and sound. But that tense scene in Mission Control still gets to me anyway. "Will they make it? Can they make it? Oh, the suspense..."

Alright, who can't love a lovable robot.

Number 5, is alive. Short Circuit. Now, I'm embarrased.

More input!

Ok, how's this:

Florence Henderson in bed with Bobcat Goldthwait in the movie "Shakes the Clown".

Or the entire movie, "The Dark Backward"... I secretly love that movie and NEED it to come out on DVD. :(

oh god the shame

Oh dear God the shame...

As the originator of this thread I feel that I should really take this opportunity to get things back on 'embarrassing' track....

(please don't hate me for these...)

1) Speed - "There's a bomb on this bus!" (even though it is more wooden than Noah's Arc...)

2) Iron Eagle - when he puts Queen's 'One Vision' into his cassette player and bombs the hell outa the air strip (am I the only person who remembers this movie?)

3) When Harry met Sally - new years...darn it I'm welling up ;-)

If my girlfriend ever finds this thread she's gonna dump me faster than Michael Shumacher on a school run...

Okay, FINE! "You've Got Mail," when Tom Hank's dog comes bounding around the corner at the park and Meg Ryan (before collagen) suddenly realizes it was him all along she was getting the e-mails from.

Likewise, "Sleepless in Seattle," same scenario at the top of the Empire State Building.

Do we feel better now????

Stanley Kubrick : Thanks for the memories or how I learned to love the atom bomb.
Clockwork Orange (I think still the best movie)
Lolita

Akira Kurosawa : Seven Samurai
Ran

Clockwork Orange- now that’s a cameraman's movie. The long shots, the wide shots- nothing like it. Stan, once a photojournalist for Look Magazine, knew how to use the lenses perspective

“One sentence is worth a minute of film- so write me 120 good sentences.” or close to it ... SK once said.

Ran is so pure...

The end of "The Natural" when the tumbling ball from the pennant game becomes the ball that ends up in the retired Robert Redford's glove. Everything is happy. They are on the farm. Glenn Close is there. So CHEESY but I LOVE IT.
