Top Cheeseby zachjennecca | created - 28 Mar 2013 | updated - 09 Apr 2013 | Public
Movies that are incredibly cheesy! Old and newer... By cheesy, I mean... It's soo-o-o obvious that the acting is trying too hard to be good, and that excessive showing off makes the film laughable! Spoofs like Scary Movie would have no business being here.
NOTE: If you have toughts about my list, please leave a comment. I welcome them!
The list is in no particular order. I also keep my lists at under 100 movies, so if something is missing, it may be in the spirit of keeping your reading reasonable...
