Movies You Secretly Watch Every Time They’re On

If you were born in the mid/late 80s, then these movies are a must watch every time you flip past them on ABC Family while channel surfing. Regardless of how far along the movie, you will always watch at least until the next commercial.


If you don’t like this movie, you have no soul.

Space Jam

If you happen to catch the start of the second half of the game or any glimpse of Bill Murray, there is a 95% chance that you will have to finish the whole movie.


Not the big red dog. This is a lesser known film, but one of the greatest comedies ever made. Martin Short is a TOUR DE FORCE (I have no idea what that means but I always see it in movie reviews).

Any movie with Sinbad

If your dad was the president, you would want Sinbad as your secret service agent too.

Mighty Ducks

No explanation needed. Hans was a father to us all.

Home Alone

Only the ones with Macauley Culkin. The Wet Bandits were the Bonnie and Clyde of our generation.

Shawshank Redemption

It’s on TNT every Sunday afternoon like clockwork, right when you’re nursing that hangover.

Jim Carrey Movies

1994 was one of the greatest years ever for comedy: Ace Ventura (the original), The Mask, and Dumb and Dumber all came out that one year.

Good Burger

Kurt at Mondo Burger was a huge bro. Also, Sinbad was in it.

Blue Streak

OG Martin Lawrence and the Federales
