Everyone loves a good movie. Hell, some questionable individuals may even say that they enjoy a bad movie because, after all, movies tend to be a highly subjective art form (like any, really). Despite that little fact, however, what if the movie were just so blatantly awful that you simply can’t lie to yourself any longer? For example, these following movies are so bad you’d rather spend time playing bingo with grandma and/or ice fishing.
1. Catwoman (2004)
Based on the DC Comics character, Catwoman stars Halle Berry in one of her biggest failures to date. Directed by some French dude named Pitof (does he think he’s Cher or something?) this bad movie spelled disaster right from the start when they couldn’t even get something as simple as Catwoman’s outfit to be a proper comic book representation. Instead, they have her parading around in a bra. Likewise, Orlando Sentinel was nice enough to say it was, “arguably the worst superhero film ever made”. That’s what I call being generous.
2. Disaster Movie (2008)
This piece of flaming horse manure surely lives up to its name. Written and directed by two guys who must have been stoned out of their minds the entire way through, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer’s bad movie is a parody of disaster films. Oh, the irony. Fun fact, I went to watch this “movie” when it was released in theatres and actually walked out less than halfway through. I guess the site of Kim Kardashian was just too much to handle.
3. Freddy Got Fingered (2001)
Another fun fact: this bad movie was actually the first DVD I ever bought. Now, you may or may not be asking yourself, “what’s a DVD” but that’s not the point. The point is that I clearly had a terrible taste in movies and I should be ashamed of myself. Directed and starring Tom Green himself, this film was filled with nothing but gross-out and shock humor. CNN critic Paul Clinton was nice enough to declare it as, “quite simply the worst movie ever released by a major studio in Hollywood history”.
4. Gigli (2003)
Merely pronouncing the title itself and you already know that you’re in for a bumpy ride. This piece of crap, directed by Martin Brest, features Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck in one hell of a bad movie with nothing but narrative clichés and one-dimensional stereotypes. Probably the most substantial indication that this film was a complete failure was its pathetic box office performance; 75 million budget, earning 7.3 million. Talk about a waste of money.
5. Jack and Jill (2011)
Simply put, Jack and Jill is nothing more than another one of Adam Sandler’s failed attempts at actually being funny (lackluster jokes galore). If one Sandler character wasn’t already too much to handle, the sick bastard gives us two in this terrible film. Moreover, the film holds a 3% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. That said, I sometimes seriously wonder if Sandler actually enjoys making bad movies.
6. The Room (2003)
This bad movie (putting it lightly) honestly needs no introduction. The reason, it is actually world famous for being one of the worst movies of all time. Search the net for it and you’ll get an abundance of results as to why this piece of shit is so terrible. As well, it’s now a cult classic for those aforementioned questionable individuals who enjoy this kind of stuff. “I did not hit her”. Tommy Wiseau, you should be ashamed.
7. Holmes & Watson (2018)
The latest bad movie to be shat out of Hollywood’s unholy rectum, Holmes & Watson stars Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly at their worst. Sadly, diehard fans (if they even exist) who were expecting Step Brothers Part 2 instead received a plate full of unfunny dialogue, an utter squandering of its source material, as well as a wasted opportunity for the cast.
Further, ABC News reported that it was well “on track to be one of the worst-reviewed movies ever”. If that isn’t enough, Netflix refused to purchase it from the film distributor. Ouch.
When it’s all said and done, everyone can enjoy a bad movie when equipped with the right mindset, but these films are seriously pushing the envelope for all things terrible. Nevertheless, do you think I was too harsh? Let us know in the comments below!
