Every time I come across Never Been Kissed on TV, I have this compulsion to watch it. I know it’s a terrible movie full of bad messages and terrible stereotypes. The ugly duckling turns into a swan story. The smart people are nerds and socially shunned but are ultimately the victors trope. The one true love schmaltz. The unbearable whiteness of being. It’s awful. It’s a terrible movie. In case you missed it, let me throw in one more terrible.
And I love, love, love it.
THL readers, I need some reassurances that I’m not the only one with this kind of dirty secret*. Do you have any movies or shows** that break your “ism” rules, but you love them anyway? Do you attempt to justify the love by finding excuses, or do you enjoy your crapfest, no holds barred?
*you already know my biggest dirty secret: Supernatural.
ETA: **or any media, really. Confession: I did not mean to hit publish on this post. LOL.
