Striptease named favourite guilty pleasure film

Demi Moore’s film Striptease - awarded the title of worst movie of the year when released - was today named film fans’ favourite guilty pleasure.

It finished just ahead of Brad Pitt film Troy in a poll for Lovefilm to find viewers’ secret indulgences.

Striptease - in which Moore dances topless - won a Golden Raspberry as the worst film of 1996. Moore was also named worst actress while she and co-star Burt Reynolds were worst screen couple, among the film’s six Razzie wins.

Users of film rental service Lovefilm were asked to name the guilty pleasure movies they like to watch online.

Oldest film in the list is Ed Wood’s Plan 9 From Outer Space, released in 1958, while another vintage flick, 1964’s Carry On Cleo, also makes the top 10.

Lovefilm editor Helen Cowley said: “Everyone has a guilty pleasure they perhaps don’t want to admit to and as the list illustrates, it’s generally the films that critics love to hate. Unsurprisingly, Striptease’s saucy subject matter has rocketed Demi Moore’s single-mother stripper to the top spot.”
