20 minutes into Mystery Men, my wife and I realized that the rental place already had $2.85 of our money, we didn't need to give them 2 hours of our life as well.

Usually "Plan Nine from Outer Space", an Ed Wood epic, wins this honor. I might go for Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, but that's actually a spoof. Plan Nine is a cult classic, so maybe that also eliminates it.

As for the other end of this thread, the "so bad they're good," I can't turn down a chance to see Phillip Rhee's "Best of the Best." James Earl Jones, Eric Roberts, Chris Penn, Sally Kirkland, Omahd Rushad, what's not to love?

Nobody will agree with my selection, but 'A Fish Called Wanda' just seems stupid, instead of funny, to me.
Maybe if they'd 'played it straight' and let the humour shine through, rather than trying to hit me over the head with their cleverness...
But, this is a matter of individual taste, and we'll each have our own opinions on movies, books, music, etc.

Worst i ever saw part of was some POS with Adam Sandler in it... my sister and bro in law draged me into it, but I walked out after 10 mins or so and did that knowing MY car was parked about 3 miles away... but it was a nice night for a walk. I think that is one actor thats got someone by the short hairs, cuz that's the only way he'd ever get a role in any film...

My brother & I used to build aerial CATV systems. We spent a lot of time in dingy motels in little podunk towns with nothing to do but watch TV at night. Peter would sit through the most abysmal movies and, being both the little brother and 2nd linesman, I'd have no say in the matter. When they were (finally!) over, I'd ask him why he didn't change the channel to something better.

"I kept waiting for it to get better!", would be his usual reply.

I read a lot of books in motel lobbies during those years...

I still remember "The Killer Shrews", one of the United Artists classics. The oversize shrews were played by a pack of beagles, sprayed with glue and flocked with some kind wool, their tails straightened by sticks held on by adhesive tape. The tape worked loose, and some of the tails ended up sticking up, more beagle-like. Being dogs and all, they started to sniff each other, and, well, you know...

No votes for "Battlefield Earth" That fine John Revolting epic. There is only one reason for seeing this movie. Someday, 20 years from now, somebody will walk up to you and say "This was the worst movie I've seen since 'Battlefield Earth'." When that happens it will help if you have some frame of reference for comparison.

"Once Upon A Time In China: Part Six"
Starring Jet Li (hero) and Joe Sayah from Australia (badass).
Directed by Sammo Hung, famous Chinese director and actor.
Filmed down on the border at Bracketville, Texas.
I played a "townsman" as an extra for $120 per day for 30 days.
Bad as the movie is, there are 5 previous Parts(equally bad), and many later copycat versions made in Hong Kong.

Terror in a Texas Town with our favorite sailor actor....

Nobody mentioned Starship Troopers? The other one I would have nominated is delta Force. I think the third [ and definately the worst ] has already been mentioned. "Plan Nine from Outer Space", If that is the one with the Martian wearing a helmet rejected by Nasa, a gorilla suit, a communicator cleverly disguised as a black and white tv with rabbit ears. The prety damsel in distress is held captive in a cave on a cot, perfectly secured by a tiny string aorund her right wrist that my 4 year old could break. The good guy finally does in the invader with a .32 but didn't have any blanks, so to make it look like he is shooting, he shakes the gun at the villan. All that and black and white too.

The best collection of bad movies, bar none, was on Mystery Science Theater 3000. A movie plays and three guys heckle.

The movies they skewered: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Mystery_Science_Theater_3000_episodes

Arguably the worst movie ever is Manos, the Hands of Fate. You can watch it in uncut glory here (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7384643968499941164&ei=ePWISem0DpTuqALh3ey8Cw&q=mst3k+manos)... or a little sample here (http://youtube.com/watch?v=vlaaA8eh4tE&feature=PlayList&p=374E609BD4FC1521&index=13)

I absolutely LOVE Roadhouse, yes, its completely awful, and majestic in its awfulness.

There was a porno from the 70s called "Tarzan, Jane, Cheetah, and Boy."

Any Elvis Movie, but the worst, Clambake, or maybe Blue Hawaiian.

Anything with Melanie Griffith in it, but Cherry 2000 is the worst.

And that Jane Fonda sci fi movie, what was that? Speaking of which, Zardoz.

I agree with SchoonerRat about how vile Battlefield Earth is, especially since they "went to the trouble" of having big names like Barry Pepper and John Ravolta (my play on your concept 'rat) in the cast.

But then, Mystery Science Theatre 3000 (and 2000 before it) made an (ahem) science of picking the absolute worst movies to heckle. Ideally, Battlefield Earth should be screened on Mystery Science Theatre 3000. Mystery Scientology Theater 3000!

Chris Ostlind: I love your pick! It hardly qualifies as worst ever, though it is strangely horrific and mouth-gape stunning!

By far the worse movie ever and with no hope of being so bad it is good, in fact it punches through that barrier and goes to so bad it makes you want puke every time you even here the soundtrack, has got to be "Grease."

And BTW if you don't think Adam Sandler is funny you need to go back and try to get them to refund you for your funny bone because obviously you have no sense of humor.

Pearl Harbour had a very redeeming sequence.I loved the dogfights during the time one of the heroes flies for the British in a Spitfire. It is one of the most realistic and best shot dogfight sequences I've ever seen. Titanic? well, it sank. Nuff said.

Nobody has yet gone near movie musicals.
76 Trombones was a real treat on Broadway, when my parents took me and my sibs to see it.
10 years or so later it came out as a Hollywood blockbuster and after about a half hour of disbelief we (same group) walked out. I still can't figure out how it was turned into such a piece of trash.

john travolta in that crappy scientologist movie


"Battlefield Earth" is one of the worst films ever made. It's that simple. It's "Plan 9 From Outer Space" made with 60 million dollars. Had Ed Wood actually made it, people would expect an apology. When the cultural impact of this fiasco finally sinks in, John Travolta will be lucky if he can get a job plucking the gray hairs out of Ron Palillo's ass.
The only thing I can figure out is that the Church of Scientology decided that they wanted to ensure nobody else joined up. This movie is like watching the Pope accidentally catch on fire while giving Easter Mass. If that's not a time to rethink your spiritual choices, what is?
Discussing the details of the plot is probably akin to discussing the literary merits of a Nora Roberts novel. I just can't emphasize enough how bad it all is. I mean, it's such a disaster it may resurrect Lawrence-Hilton Jacobs' career. He'll be able to defend himself by saying "at least I didn't make 'Battlefield Earth'," and executives will have to acknowledge that he has a point. Anyway, it's the year 3000, a thousand years after a race called the Psychlos has taken over the Earth. The head of security is Terl (John Travolta) and he wants to use the humans as slaves for his personal gain. Unfortunately, Jonnie Goodboy Tyler (Barry Pepper) has other plans and leads a revolt.
In case you haven't seen any pictures, Psychlos are Jamaican Klingons who talk like Ferengi. The primary special effect in the movie is accomplished by filling buckets with dirt and pieces of concrete and then tossing them across the screen. Director Roger Christian has a hard-on for flying dirt like you would not believe. The guys who wrote this should be forced to dictate everything for the rest of their lives so that they can never again touch pen to paper or finger to keyboard and declare themselves writers. If Christian can get a job as a Sears portrait photographer after this movie, Congress should make the use of cameras punishable by death. Every single scene is at an angle, which gave me the urge to slide off my chair and smash my skull into the floor. Action scenes look like they were shot inside a paint mixer.
If egos were farts, one imagines John Travolta could destroy an entire planet himself by devouring a single frozen burrito. That this film even got made is clearly one testament to that fact, and that they're already planning a sequel is another.

That would be the film version of "Oh, what a lovely War!"


I have a very soft spot for that film. I was a student and living in Brighton when it was shot and several of my friends appeared in it as extras.

Never forgot the fine sight of the band of the Grenadier Guards marching along the esplanade in all their glory, instruments flashing in the sunshine, for the first "pier" scene. Or Brighton station crowded with WW1 soldiers and all the accoutrements when we went to catch the train to Falmer in the mornings.

The trench scenes, including the cold and snowy Christmas football match, were shot on Brighton rubbish dump in high summer.

it sure is strange how tastes differ. thankyou mr Craig-Bennet for the title to the movie " oh what a lovely war" I watched it while on detached duty building a store in the next state over for a company I regularly dove for. I did especally like two british TV shows ( besides of couse benny hill) they were "butterflys" about the wife of a dentist with two grown sons who is laving a platonic love afair with an american milionare. the second son ( who at one point tried to" put an 11 foot lorie through a 9 foot underpass" maybe wrong on that last word in the quote might have been "bridge?") latter was in a show called " the two of us" most memorable skit the leading lady is taking a compatability quiz that asks " what part of yourself do you like" she answers "the thin bits" "what part of your self don't you like"" the fat bits" what part does your boyfriend like "" the usual bits"

another title search question. their was a western about a down on its luck town where every had invested in the local lead mine and it was shut down after they were told it was molibdimum. which they pronounced 'molly be damed'. except the kids had to say' molly be durned' one of the outlaws in the movie I belive was victor french ? who latter play michawel landons friend on little house on the prarrie. near the end of the movie after the mine is reopened the outlaws girl friend is hen pecking him for not buying stock in the mine as he scrambles around their house will he finds the stock certificates he had bought and hid away

You are quite sure about this, are you?

Did you see the treatment, the script?... the shooting schedule, or any of the edit? Did you interview the director?

Come on, Bob. There's a whole category in the Academy Awards that deals with Short Subjects. How many of those have you seen over the years?

The point here, is that there's no real line in the sand that could give you anything like an ability to make a firm statement on the topic.

If you want to generally paw around at it and leave out the labels, then be my guest. Do stay away from the requirement that the experience must have a beginning middle and end to qualify. If that is so, then hundreds of thousands of art movies would have to be disqu'ed and one should know that isn't going to happen.

First I thought this because it has John Astin in it.....
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067072/
but that weren't it......
it were this....
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069825/

For those that can't be bothered clicking links the first is Evil Roy Slade the second is The Brothers O'Toole.....in which John Astin has this to say;


Michael O'Toole: I have, in my time, visited three political conventions, four sessions of congress, and two homes for the criminally insane. I have known army generals, steam doctors, vegetarians, prohibitionists, and a female suffragette. But never, even in an Orangeman's Day parade, have I seen such pure and stainless brainlessness as I now behold in you. The Almighty, in His infinite wisdom and mercy, has given the worm enough sense to turn with, and the barnacle can grasp whatever happens to be standing by. But you are equipped with a mental capacity smaller than you were born with. Here we are, benighted in the middle of a nowhere named Molly-Be-Damn - a dreary little rookery, Timothy, a squalid sty, a festering pustule on the face of the western slope. Bless the town and bless the people! Look at them - the rabble of this cantankerous community! Knaves and fools, louts and lardheads, the least of all God's creatures, without enough push to pick the fleas off each other, abiding in putrefaction and inertia, curled up comfy in it like hogs in a mud hole! And while I, of all people, fret and sweat for a way to pull these Simple Simons out of the bog, you stand around making flatulent noises for the titillation of the vulgar mob. And while he's bubbling himself, what are you doing, you pusillanimous pack of popcorn pickers? You clattered clutch of clucks? The town dilapidating around you, coasting downhill in a handcart to Hell while you stand about gaping for flies and going patty-cake with your hands!
Mayor: There now! Now just one minute you!
Michael O'Toole: All right, all right, all right! Fine! Keep it, and treasure it the way it is! For when all this trash has collapsed into one pile, and the howling wilderness has claimed its own again, I want you hicks to be happy, belching and spitting, laughing and singing, swinging from tree to tree, with your friend Soapy Sam here, the Uriah Heep of the hookworm belt, standing around below waiting to steal anything that falls to the ground. If a nut should drop and fall - leave it lying there. It's probably my little brother Timothy.
Sheriff: Is that all?
[O'Toole throws up his hands]
Sheriff: [Crowd applauds]
Sheriff: By acclamation - the winner of the cussin' contest - Michael O'Toole!

Titanic or Pearl Harbour instantly came to my mind.

You, of course, are referring to the latest offerings. I agree that, for the money expended, these two movies are amongst the worst ever made. Too much money for romance pap in Titanic, the same for Harbor plus the inexcusable historical inaccuracies compounding the garbage.

"Tora Tora Tora" did not do well theatrically (except in Japan) but due to being a fairly good historical movie has done well over time in other types of release. I, for one, have seen it quite a few times and so have millions of other people. This contrasts to the modern movie which, I predict, will not have legs.


None of us has ever seen the truly worst movies for they are either not ever presented to us or we find something better to do than watch them.

What is someone's worst, however, may be an enjoyable film to another. I rather liked "A Fish Called Wanda".

Bob

I nominate for the "It is so bad that it is good" category, "Killer Clowns From Outer Space".

I like George but this one,about a big tanker that just sails around the ocean and you can't get off...incredibly lame.
also surprised that no one suggested Jaws 3 & 4 I will be the first to say that I really really like Michael Caine , but as the pilot of the piper cub or what ever it was,Hoagy just didn't do it ...

Cat Women of the Moon. Although I thought it was pretty hot as a kid back in the late 50's.

"What About Bob?" with Harrison Ford-Edsel playing a man who's brain has been winged by a bullet.

Sure you're not thinking of Regarding Henry ? The movie where Bill Murray has a psychotic episode and believes he's Indiana Jones?

Add "The Big Easy" to the list. Dennis Quade fakes the worst Cajun accent possible and Ellen Barken keeps most of her clothes on.:(

What a terrifying image. Oh, that monster at the top is pretty nasty too.

Titanic was a beautiful movie. I gather some of you don't like love stories.

Truely abysmal was that atrocious thing Tom Hanks did about the guy who couldn't speak english and was lost in the airport terminal, now strangely prophetic and poignant since the RCMP killed a man who couldn't speak english and was lost in Vancouver airport.

Ishtar was beyond awful.

People who are interested in boats should put "Speed 2" on the list of worst movies. I loved the scene where the hero was hanging from a rope under the boat traveling at 16 knots tryint to untangle a line from the propellers, which incedentally turned the wrong way, and were not counter-rotating.

The Costner character should have lived, married the girl, and sailed off into the sunset.

Apologies to Chris Ostlind, though I was being tongue in cheek. Yes, short subjects are "movin' pictures" too :)

My nomination: Blue Velvet. Heard it was a cult classic, just recently saw it on cable, holy crap was it bad. But definitely explains the later Twin Peaks by the same director, David Lynch. At least Twin Peaks produced one good quotable line: "Damn fine cup of coffee."

I have to disagree on Blue Velvet, just the opening with the camera panning down from a clear blue sky to rose covered white picket fence as Bobby Vinton sings "Blue Velvet" is worth the price of admission. I saw the movie as an absurd comedy and a dark drama all at once, kinda hard to pull off, but I think he succeeded. Give Lynch's "The Straight Story" a try, it's very different kind of movie; sweet, non-violent, quirky story about an old guy who rides a lawnmower across several states to see his brother.
