Default What's the Worst Movie You Ever Saw?

I've seen a lot I waiting on...to get better...sometimes they did, sometimes they didn't.

My all-timer, however, is 'The Dinner' staring Richard Gere and Laura Linney.

I've enjoyed the work of both of those actors before, but they did nothing to save this one.


Honorable Mention to "Kong: Scull Island" because Kong was so very obviously a man in a 'gorilla suit'.

The proper gorilla body type and movement was on full display in Pete's Jackson's masterful update of "King Kong". Sure there was a lot of CGI involved, but the results were much more like an actual gorilla.


Just as bad as 'The Dinner', in retrospect, was the second Jaws installment, in which the shark somehow tracks a woman from New England to the Bahamas.

...at least I didn't rent that one.

I love the first Slapshot movie but Slapshot 2 and 3 were among the worst movies ever made.

Default Jaws Sequels

Raymond-- the second Jaws movie was passable. It still had Rory Scheider and was still set in Amity. The 3d was set in some water park setting and had Dennis Quad.

The 4th movie was the one you mentioned, The Revenge. I think it was made because Lorraine Gary, who played the wife of Chief Brody in 1 & 2, was in real life the wife of the head of the studio that produced all 4 movies and he tried to resurrect his wife's career and the franchise with the movie.

Agree it was a stinker. 3 was pretty bad too. In that one when one guy gets eaten the camera goes inside the shark

Worst I ever saw was "no nukes". My friends dragged me to it in Highschool because it had Springsteen in it. I wasn't really sure who he was at the time, but they were all like "we gotta see THE BOSS and he's in this movie.

Being in Mass, where the films intent was popular, I didn't expect so see people standing up after maybe 5-10 minutes loudly declaring how much it sucked and demanding their money back as they left.

Once it got -Finally- to the Springsteen part, which was a huge disappointment. I told them off a bit and left.

Only movie I ever walked out of, and I've seen some really awful ones.

Al- I forgive myself for not being more familiar with that trash...perhaps it was my memory defending my sanity, by just reminding me to hate all the jaws sequels.

If you want to rid your mind of such accurate recall of all that garbage, I would recommend heavy drinking, or if that doesn't work, a lobotomy.

Having worked in a Movie store (Mr. Movies) in the mid-1990's, I was privileged to see some truly awful movies come through at that time. Will have to collect my thoughts for a proper answer...

But I will say that the art of the so-bad-it's-good movie is really an artfully fine balancing act. It should be praised to the heavens whenever it is achieved.
In that category, the movie They Live comes to mind, and mostly due to the *awkwardly* long fight scene between Keith David and WWF's 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper.

Just wear the dang glasses, Keith!!

Default So bad its' good

Fantasy Mission Force.

This is one of those so-bad-its'-good movies, at the very pinnacle of the genre. It is worth a few hours of your time for exactly that reason. It starts out off the rails and actually finds a way to get weirder and worse progressively.

It is seriously life-changing cinema. I laughed until I cried.

Agreed.

I was so looking forward to a good baseball movie and I don't think I lasted 20 minutes watching that piece of crap.

My if and I saw Samson yesterday. It is absolutely terrible. I'm sure I've seen worse, but this is fresh in my mind.

on another members advice, I'm planning to do the heavy drinking tonight to make it go away.

Jeez, based on 95% of the responses in this thread, you fella's objectively haven't seen very many bad movies with most of the "Worst Movie You Ever Saw" named.

"Battlefield Earth" is a veritable classic compared to at least 1/2 the movies ever put on film.

Another movie that shows up on most worst movie lists, and certainly ranks as one of the biggest Box office flaps, is Heaven's Gate. But except for the length I found it tolerable.

"Eyes Wide Shut". Most Tom Cruise movies suck, but that was the worst.

There's so many awful movies out there, but one that's worthy of mention is the Charlie and the Chocolate factory with Johnny Depp.

I love the original Willy Wonka, but can't stand that remake! Tried to watch it once, couldn't finish it.

Someone said it earlier and they were spot on - Blair Witch Project.

I was on a date with my first wife and still left for the lobby twice because I had to settle the motion sickness I had from the awful handheld camera work.

After coming back from the second time a man two rows in front stood up and exclaimed "what is this shit!" And angrily walked out. I turned to my lady and said "he's certainly got the right idea" and she replied "ok, you win let's go".

To this day that unknown man is my hero.
