Here are videos which gathered a lot of Polish views on youtube and became cult/classic:

Cars are sliding down on an icy road and crash. Priceless comments in the background: Ale urwał! Excellent rip off! at 0:18.

That's why i hate winter. It is always so dangerous when streets and pavements are covered with ice and snow.

Hint: If it gets millions of hits, it's not a "cult" classic. In English "cult" means a small, non-mainstream, eccentric but very loyal audience (that likes the piece in question for possibly very different reasons than the creator intended).

kultowy =/= cult

Wow, that`s interesting. Thanks for making it clear. :):):)

Sorry, I have come across the phrase on several occasions and it refered to films which appealed to many people, not just

small, non-mainstream, eccentric but very loyal audience

E.g., Anita Ekberg, the star of cult classic "La Dolce Vita", is hard-up and homeless and has asked for money from the foundation of the film's director, Federico Fellini, Italian newspaper La Stampa has reported.

sg.entertainment.yahoo/news/dolce-vita-star-asks-fellini-fund-money-081850068.html

La Dolce Vita (Italian pronunciation: [la ˈdoltʃe ˈviːta]; Italian for "the sweet life" or "the good life")[1] is a 1960 comedy-drama film written and directed by the critically acclaimed director Federico Fellini. The film is a story of a passive journalist's week in Rome, and his search for both happiness and love that will never come. La Dolce Vita won the Palme d'Or (Golden Palm) at the 1960 Cannes Film Festival[2] and the Oscar for Best Costumes.[3]

Anita Ekberg, the star of cult classic "La Dolce Vita"

That seems odd too because Fellini was a mainstream director and LDV is enjoyed by most people sincerely rather than ironically (another marker of a cult movie).

The classic definition of cult is more applied to movies like Troll 2

A Polish cult movie might be Hydrozagadka (if it has a small devoted following).

Yes, doesn`t it?

But there are many more cases of the usage of cult classic about box office hits....... :):):)

George Lucas's epic film saga Star Wars (Episodes I - VI) has become a cult classic and its characters cultural icons. One such character who made his film debux in "The Empire Strikes Back", was Yoda.

Do you think people who say so don`t know their English???

PS. All in all, I am afraid the old meaning of cult has changed and now it is very close to its Polish counterpart.

To the extent that that's true it bugs the hell out of me because it leaves a semantic hole...

If Star Wars is a cult classic then how can you describe fans (like me) of the wretched Star Wars Christmas Special?

a "cult" classic.

Stuhr may be best known for his minor role as thick-witted hairdresser Jurek in Kieślowski's Three Colors: White, in which he starred alongside Julie Delpy, Janusz Gajos, and Zbigniew Zamachowski. In Poland and nearby countries, he is probably best known for the part of Max in Juliusz Machulski's 1984 dystopian cultcomedy Seksmisja (one of the most popular Polish movies),

Pop music hits score dozens of millions views too

Piersi Balkanica
