Best movie so bad its good? "Showgirls", hands down.
I heard that Waterworld on DVD is not that bad because some of the deleted parts help the movie. Does anyone know of this to be true?
The worst movie I've ever actually paid to go see is Hollow Man. Don't ask me why I thought it was a good idea to drive to the movie theater and pay $8.50 to watch this crap on opening night. I mean, sure, I had nothing better to do that whole weekend, but the option of masturbating with a blender set to puree was right there for the taking, but no, I had to go torture myself by watching this awful movie.

The worst movie ever made is Manos:Hand of Fate. Forget Battlefield Earth. Forget Ishtar. Even Plan 9 From Outer Space managed to be at least humorously inept. Manos is just pure pain. If you watch this without Mystery Science Theater 3000 commentary, you will DIE. I mean, you know it's bad when even Joel and the Bots have trouble finding things to say. And what the hell did those teenagers making out have to do with the lost family? I mean...arrgh...The only thing of redeeming value was Torgo's ridiculous four-note theme song. What other movie can claim it drove three of its "stars" to suicide?. This movie is pure celluloid torture.
WARNING: DO NOT SEE THIS WITHOUT JOEL AND THE BOTS! If you can sit through the un-MSTed version, I praise you.
Hal Warren will burn forever for this abomination.
I'm normally open-minded and appreciate other peoples opinions . . . . . but when it comes to this topic, there is absolutely nothing to debate. Its "Manos: Hands of Fate". To say that Manos HOF is not the worst movie ever is like saying 2 + 2 = 5.
Some films are so unbelievably bad that theyre actually in a way kinda good . . . . . . . . . . . . .well, Manos HOF is 999999999999999 times worse than those films.
This is a movie that should never be watched by anyone. I have petitioned MST3K to destroy all copies of that episode. It is for the sake of humanity.

Honestly, the worst movie that I saw in the theater was "The Thin Red Line." When the film melted at the end, I saw it as divine intervention. You could edit that puppy down to a pretty good 45-minute war movie, but all that philosophical "what is the nature of evil" crap that made up 80% of the movie I can do without.
Mmmm... Ashley Judd. The perfect woman. 1) Absolutely gorgeous. 2) Loves UK basketball. 3) Was on Star Trek. What more can you ask for?
Did anyone mention The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai?
I agree that Robin Hood: Men In Tights is pretty horrible; I thought so when I saw it in the theater as a kid. Mel Brooks really lost his touch in the 90s, no doubt about that. True it may be *somewhat* harmless, but it was the first sign that Brooks was really loosing it and thus at least deserves to be considered for one of the worst all time.
Jaws 4. How you can go from one of the best movies of all time to one of the worst in a single series is beyond me.

For me, Thin Red Line edges out Natural Born Killers for the top slot. The community college level existentialism is more insulting to me than Oliver Stone's "brilliant commentary" on the state of modern media.

I always thought Pretty Woman was one of the most absurd movies I've ever watched. Hooker meets rich man, rich man falls in love with hooker, showers her with gifts. What? a hell of a message... Autumn in New York was really pathetic as well. This year Unfaithful was piss poor as well. Man, Richard Gere sucks and blows doesn't he?
Ben Affleck as Jack Ryan? Ridiculous. I love those books, and I don't think the movies will ever be as good as the books. Although they have done pretty well so far on making good movies. But Ben Affleck? Jack Ryan in at least in his 40's.
