Bad movies we love

Friday morning on "Film Week on AirTalk," our critics will share with us their choices for the worst movies ever made. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to this conversation. We'll open the phone lines for listeners to contribute to the list, so please think long and hard about the truly awful movies you've seen (and maybe even loved) over the years.

I'll lead off with "Showgirls," a movie so engagingly bad that I have a hard time changing the channel when I pass by it on TV. Yes, I understand the appeal of "Showgirls'" nudity, but it's far more than that. A lot of films are prurient, but "Showgirls" has a total package that's breathtaking. Maybe it's a good movie after all...
