Movies you're embarrassed about?

I’ve thought about The Toy before. It deals with race relations and the way the system is rigged against minorities. Yes it’s over the top and you can’t do certain things anymore (the white kid actually “buys” Pryor and they ship him in a crate to the house.) But the film’s message is relevant now more than ever.

Some combination of nostalgia for my life at the time the movie came out, 20 year-old-me's love for Hayden Christensen, the feeling I get whenever all the lightsabers begin igniting in the crowds on Geonosis, the ridiculously cheesy dialog, the girl-power-ness of seeing Padme handling **** while Anakin was still whining about them, and the giddiness of seeing Yoda bounce around while fighting. I'm not saying those are good things by any means, but it still makes it one of my favorites to watch.
I do not admit this outside of this forum and the sanctity of my marriage though...

I don't just think AOTC is the worst SW movie, I feel like it's literally one of the worst movies ever made.
One person's AOTC is another person's TLJ!
And BTW, AOTC's space scene of Obi Wan VS Jango, and the following Kamino Obi Wan VS Jango are some of the best Star Wars scenes ever, IMHO.
It's ok. I hold the very unpopular opinion that TPM is the best prequel movie.

Can we include TV shows? I finally tried The IT Crowd and have to say I do not get why everyone loves it. I felt really embarrassed watching it.
I like it, but not in love with it. I normally HATE sit-coms (or Brit humor, for that matter), but considering I work in that industry, it is funny to me at times. It's good for a binge watch or two, and that's about it. Sort of like Office Space or the Office for people who work in, well, an office. If I didn't work around tech, I probably wouldn't like IT Crowd, either.
