Furry Vengeance starring Brendan Fraser and Brooke Shields.

It's not funny, cute, exciting, nothing of interest really happens and is quite forgettable but I really enjoyed it.

Jonathan Ross and a lot of other critics hate Kevin Smith films.

Personally, I love 'em! (even Jersey Girl, but not Cop Out, it's dire)

Evolution. Almost Ghostbusters-good IMO, but it got a bit of a panning from what I remember!

I've yet to see a good review of the Eddie Murphy prison film Life but I always enjoy watching it

All the "Resident Evil" films.
All the "Underworld" films.

They're just fun action flicks, with a dash of horror, and killer lead actresses.
Can't understand just why critics are so vicious about 'em...

Hudson Hawk - universally panned.

it's one of my favourite movies. What's not to love about a safe breaking caper set to "would you like to sing on a star".

RED definitely. Saw it recently and was perfectly fine fun.

The Green Hornet - Thought it was pretty good personally.

Waterworld.

Never understood why it is so hated. It is a good sci-fi adventure film and better than most Costner films.
