22 Unconventional Movies We Secretly Adore and Defend

Movie preference is a personal thing; you need to work with stealth here, and if you’re one of those dedicated to the cause, always be ready to defend the films you love to the last breath! It is a matter of honor and dignity! And this is precisely how some people feel about the movies mentioned below:

1. Eurotrip (2004)

Eurotrip is a combination of teenage drama and comedy with over-the-top jokes and a very predictable plot. But the fact that it is so absurd is why people like this movie. The favorite thing most viewers recall about the film is the unexpected cameo of a big-name celebrity, Matt Damon, who only did his lines and left. It is so random, but that is why people love it!

2. Not Another Teen Movie (2001)

Not Another Teen Movie will take you back to prom and the good old high school days. The film plot is not unique or new; it is the basic; a jock makes a bet on transforming a low-key girl into a prom queen, as evil cheerleaders and friends try to ruin the plan.

It’s not much, but it is the perfect blend of comedy and nostalgia, and viewers say they take offense seeing this movie being categorized as such (all jokes, of course!)

3. Accepted (2006)

A viewer, very naively, states that they love this movie, and it never crossed their mind why anyone would hate it. That must be some dedicated fan because the movie is ranked sub-par, at best.

The plot is interesting as the male protagonist, Bartleby, creates a fake college to win his parents’ approval. It is a comfortable movie to watch as the plot takes subtle digs at the education system in the world.

4. Rat Race (2001)

Putting a movie starring Rowan Atkinson on this list feels criminal, but unfortunately, the Rat Race deserves that place. Fans who adore this movie say it is one of the funniest films they have watched and loved, but there is no denying how ridiculous and stupid the plot is!

Nothing makes sense, from racing to win money to ending up at a World War II conference. Everything about it is absurd, but still, there is just something that people love about it so much they will fight you over it.

5. Grandma’s Boy (2006)

This is a story of when a video game creator, Alex, unable to pay rent, moves in with his wild grandmother and her friends, who watch television all day. Their presence disturbs Alex’s wild activities and brings up romantic obstacles. It has a bizarre plotline but not one; many dedicated fans say it is “modern cinema” and an all-time favorite.

These fans are not afraid to proclaim their love for this movie, so there are no secrets here!

6. Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)

It may be strange to see a sci-fi horror movie on this list, especially one about clown-looking aliens coming to a town where they start killing people, and it is up to a group of teenagers to save the day.

We get it; sci-fi is a guilty pleasure for some people, and according to popular opinion, this movie is a classic. It is just top-tier cinematic fun, and there is no way you wouldn’t defend it, too!

7. Out Cold (2001)

Out Cold is about girlfriend drama and trying to save a snowboarding park from being sold; it is cheesy and a very easy-to-follow story. That is why it is an unconventional favorite. One fan went out to claim it may be the best snowboarding movie ever and that they use so many quotes from it, but alas, not many people can recognize them.

I suggest watching this before a snowboarding trip!

8. Waterworld (1995)

If you are an environmentalist, you may like this movie because it is about melting polar ice caps, which causes most of the Earth to go underwater. So, a mariner helps two people somehow find dry land.

Especially if you have kids who are interested in the Waterworld show, this movie can be the next movie you watch together. Then, you do not need to defend yourself to anyone if a movie is giving you bonding with your children – a perfect loophole!

9. The Postman (1997)

Let’s change the pace a little and go to a post-apocalyptic America where a drifter gives mail to survivors, in disguise, to give them hope of restoring the government. It is an old movie, and the animations are outdated, but there is something nostalgic about watching movies you loved as a kid. 

The Postman takes the cake for that one, and anyone will defend it in honor of their childhood.

10. Super Mario Bros. (1993)

The legacy of the Mario Brothers will never end, and this movie is a classic that gave rise to that revolution. According to fans, even as a child, they knew the movie was absolutely awful, but it’s the Mario Bros! How could you hate it? People adore them and will defend it to their last breath just for the nostalgic feeling it gives – and kudos to them for that!

11. The Core (2003)

Another sci-fi movie. Do you see a pattern here? Many people find sci-fi movies senseless, but there is just something about them, old ones like The Core, that people would still watch. 

The Core is about a geophysicist realizing that the Earth’s inner Core has stopped rotating, and he must fix it to avoid catastrophe. Viewers say the movie is “so bad and so good” and that it somehow gives them a cozy vibe.

12. Kung Pow! Enter the Fist (2002)

Chinese comedy-action movies may not be everyone’s cup of tea because they’re too exaggerated and sometimes senseless. However, those who love them love them for the same reasons: they are fun to watch. Fans say the cinematography is wild, and the fighting is way over-the-top, but it is a classic Christmas tradition for some!

13. Blue Streak (1999)

Back on track with ridiculous plots, Blue Steak is about a newly released prisoner, Miles, who immediately goes back to get the diamond he hid. However, he finds a police station in its palace now. Hence, his solution is to pretend to be a newly transferred officer.

Starring Chappelle, this movie is a classic because it is purely mediocre, yet fans have claimed they watched it a hundred times!

14. Hackers (1995)

Hackers is a crime thriller about a guy (tech genius) named Dave, who accidentally wrote a virus and then plans on writing a new one. Popular fan opinion says this movie is “so bad,” and the figures prove it (it made less at the box office than its budget!). For some, the one-liners and the absurdity are worth watching again.

15. Surf Ninjas (1993)

This story is about two brothers who randomly find out that they own a tiny South Pacific Island, and chaos ensues! Obviously, it is a comedy movie, but not the greatest. It has some funny scenes and quotable dialogues, but the moral of the story is that good guys do win in the end. So, if you watched Surf Ninjas as a kid, you will remember it and probably quote it to this day, as many fans claim they do.

16. You Don’t Mess with the Zohan (2008)

Imagine a counterterrorist commando faking his death and moving to New York to start a career as a hairstylist. Doesn’t make any sense, right? But it is the plot of this film, starring Adam Sandler. Fan testimony is that they do not care what anyone says; this movie is hilarious and silly, and they love it. Sounds like it’s personal for some people!

17. Demolition Man (1993)

Starring Sylvester Stallone and Sandra Bullock, it is a science-fiction film set in the future. The plot is a complex situation where a psychopathic killer is on the loose, and a person is thawed out from CryoPrison to catch him.

The film didn’t do well on the screens, but fans said it was a bad movie. One person gives a brilliant description of why they love it: because it feels like the entire script is a combination of one-liners that make up the movie! A strange reason, no doubt! 

18. Last Action Hero (1993)

A superfan gets a ticket to transport themselves into the world of their favorite action character. That is the plot of The Last Action Hero, and the movie, with its comedy, plot, and overall vibe, is unconventional at best. One fan says they will only defend it because it is a straightforward action movie, not plain satire. That worked well in favor of the director!

19. Tremors (1990)

Image Credit: Universal Pictures.


In Nevada, two friends find another friend’s dead body and realize some strange underground creatures are eating people. Tremor is a popular movie with multiple sequels, and it brings back proper nostalgia.

Even though the CGI creatures and their animation are pretty bad compared to what animation is nowadays, this movie is loved by many. Some fans say it is because of good, cheesy fun, and they will not accept any slander.

20. Paint Your Wagon (1969)

This is the first musical on the list, and it is a classic starring legendary star Clint Eastwood. The plot is a very cliche love triangle, and the story is nothing unique. Fans only have one point of defense: the movie had Clint Eastwood singing. And that ticks all the boxes for them!

21. Hot Rod (2007)

Hot Rod is about a guy named Rod, who is an amateur stuntman. He tries to raise money for his stepfather’s medical bills by performing the biggest stunt ever. It sounds like a good plot with a noble reason, but this is a comedy movie starring Andy Samberg, so there’s nothing serious here.

It is foolish and comical, as per fan testimonies, and maybe that’s why they have to defend why they like it. You just can’t not like this movie! 

22. Mortal Kombat (1995)

Mortal Kombat is an action and adventure movie, and one fan claims it is the “best bad movie ever.” Fan reviews do not have such high praise about the movie itself, but they only adore it and would defend it because this movie’s music hits the spot.

Apparently, each and every song is fantastic and an instant repeat. It seems it could be the smallest thing that can make a movie be loved for a long time!
