So Wrong, But So Right: The Best Guilty Pleasure Films Of All Time

Team MC have 'fessed up and revealed their top guilty pleasure films. And now we need your help!


Working Girls
‘Working Girl is the film that made me desperate to work in the city. It tells the story of a secretary (Melanie Griffith) who impersonates her high-powered boss (Sigourney Weaver) so she can climb the career ladder. She also steals her boss’ boyfriend, Harrison Ford (yum). It’ll make you want to wear hi-tops to the office and crimp your hair.’
Rebecca Martin, online news editor

One Fine Day
‘A total cheesefest and it stars George Clooney. What could be better?!’
Eleanor Young, deputy online editor


Freaky Friday
‘Freaky Friday with Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis. Just yes.’
Miranda McMinn, associate editor

Breakfast at Tiffany’s
‘Simply because I know it word for word. It’s actually embarrassing.’
Olivia Cox, beauty assistant

About A Boy
‘The scene where they kill the duck with a stale loaf of bread makes me cry laughing. It’s genius. This film is heartwarming, funny and has a deeper message than you might think.’
Holly Welch, junior fashion editor

Clueless
‘Like, totally, the most 90s fashion forward movie ever.’
Lisa Potter, online assistant

Elf
‘Will Ferrell in a felty elf suit in New York. It’s not just for christmas and it’s definitely on my naughty list.’
Tessa Solomons, booking editor

‘An hilarious feel good Christmas film and I love Will Ferrell (blush).’
Tanya Semikoz, executive fashion editor

Hairspray
‘It has to be the original with Ricki Lake. She’s divine as a 30-stone suburban housewife, as is Debbie Harry being bitchy with huge hair – you just can’t beat it.’
Jess Wood, fashion features director

Kindergarten Cop
‘I love how hard man Arnie shows his soft side and finally meets his match in a bunch of children.’
Kelly Preedy, picture editor

A League Of Their Own
‘Starring Tom Hanks, Madonna, Geena Davis, and all based on the true story of women playing baseball in war time. Genius!’
Jess Lacey, beauty features director

Earth Girls Are Easy
‘It stars Geena Davis as a manicurist in California whose life is turned upside down when three furry aliens (Jeff Goldblum, Damon Wayans and a very young Jim Carrey) fly their spaceship into her swimming pool. It’s silly, it’s cheesy, but it’s a whole lot of fun.’
Fiona Raisbeck, online style writer

The Holiday
Kate Winslet’s friendship with the elderly movie director makes me weep everytime. And I just love how he motivates her to take control of her own life by telling her to have gumption. Watching this film is like getting a cuddle from your nan. Love it.’
Suzannah Ramsdale, online features editor
