I don't mean to be contrary, but I honestly never feel guilty about anything I watch. If I can find something enjoyable about it and other people can't, then that's their problem/loss.
Trying to think of things that might qualify for your list, though, maybe some of these would count.

The Cannonball Run (I love this movie and so do most of my friends, but I understand it is looked down upon around here)
Spacehunter: Adventures In The Forbidden Zone
Lips Of Blood
Flash Gordon
Fiend Without A Face
Night Of The Comet
Trancers
The Batman Movie ('66)
The Last Boyscout
Oh! Got one: Grease 2

K, that's fair, I'll find something to replace it with.
Yeah, Grease 2. ?"Reproduction", "Let's Do It For Our Country", "Score Tonight", "Who's That Guy", and to a lesser degree even "Prowlin'" are fun for me, and I always liked movies with motorcycles.

Hey, no one ever said this was a list of movies we were proud of!

The thing is, the original Highlander is already pretty batshit crazy. The Quickening just kicks it up a notch. Plus it has Michael Ironside, a worthy replacement for Clancy Brown.

As for Highlander Endgame, there is no excuse for that movie. It is so unremarkable you can't even properly hate it.

These are just the ones I can think of. I'm sure there's plenty more.

Hey, don't get me wrong. I get the idea behind the concept, but I don't like to sponsor it. That said, I'm always open to discussions as to why do we feel "guilty" about enjoying something, and why do some might deem certain films "guilty pleasures" and others don't ;)

I don't believe there are any guilty pleasures. I think I'd go to bat for any movie that I enjoy. If I enjoy some movie despite its flaws, even a bad movie, I don't see why I should feel guilty about that. It obviously has something of value that I'm latching on to. If I enjoy a movie because of its flaws, that's not really a guilty pleasure either, since that's more of an ironic, lofty viewing "from above".

For instance, I don't really see many movies listed in this thread that anyone should feel "guilty" about watching. Many of them have entertaining qualities that it makes sense to me why you would enjoy them. Even if I don't get some of them, the point is that you do. So why feel guilt? Maybe you find yourself enjoying those movies more than you should, but what the hell does that mean? Some movies just aren't that good, but are still very enjoyable because of that one thing or two that actually works in the movie.

Not to rain on the parade, I'm just struggling to come up with examples for myself. All the ones I'm inclined to pick, I can see myself wanting to defend. If it's just about what other people would shame me for, then I could list a thousand of them or more. But is that all we mean here? I could throw out Tony Scott deep cuts like Domino, or a number of Schumacher films like Batman Forever or Phantom of the Opera, or whatever, but I'm just convinced the consensus against these movies is wrong.

I'd agree with about half of these, but Brotherhood of the Wolf? That is not a guilty pleasure. That is a fine piece of filmmaking.
