Bad movies are ironically some of the most entertaining movies to watch. Rather the acting is poor, the dialogue, the plot, or even all of the above, it is surprising that some of these movies ever got made. That is why I decided to let you the best worst movies you need for a bad movie night!
Howard The Duck
The first of the bad movies we have is Howard The Duck. Howard The Duck has the worst movie for a Marvel character hands down, but also the Marvel character I would want to get drunk with. The cartoonish duck should not be taken lightly, because he gets down with the get down. You also get to see duck girl boobs, so if you ever wanted to see duck girl boobs, here you go!
Meet The Spartans
There are plenty of terrible parody movies out there. Disaster Movie, Epic Movie, basically any other “movie” movie besides Scary Movie. The winner (or loser) of all the awful parody movies is Meet The Spartans. This movie is a parody of 300 kind of. I say kind of because this movie lacks any underlying parody aspects. The whole movie feels like pop culture reference after pop culture reference with absolutely nothing to do with the story. The best example of this is the Barbie Girl scene. Watch the clip and tell me this doesn’t look dreadful.
Freddy Got Fingered
Even though it is put in the category of bad movies, the Tom Green directed Freddy Got Fingered is still one of my favorites. If you have ever heard of Tom Green, I do not need to explain further why this movie is on here. If you are unfamiliar, Tom Green is one of the original NSFW gross-out comedians. The story follows a young inspiring cartoonist’s journey to becoming a man, though you probably won’t take in much of the plot because you will be too busy wondering what the hell you are watching. Very heavy NSFW warning for anyone who checks it out. Here is a Freddy Got Fingered movie spoiler without context… Farmers wear gloves when working with horses.
Master of Disguise
Master of Disguise is a headache disguised as a comedy movie. In a nutshell, a guy can disguise himself to do a thing or something. But they do not give Dana Carvey anything to do, leaving his only resort to get a laugh is to act silly… the entire movie. Even the credits suck! They go on for nearly 15 minutes showing every blooper and flubbed line they ever did. Not to mention Dana Carvey doing brownface as an overblown stereotypical depiction of an Indian snake charmer. Credit where credit is due, the turtle club scene is hilarious, it’s just a damn shame it was mixed into this movie that is not only a murder of movies but is also a murderer of comedy.
Movie 43 has a star-studded cast of A-list & B-list celebrities, such as Kristen Bell, Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Anna Faris, Johnny Knoxville, and many more. So how on earth could it be a bad movie? Well, there is no real story to follow, as the entire plot is a man pitching different movie ideas to an executive of some big cheese movie company. Each movie idea is often obscene, grotesque, and juvenile. It really does seem like every actor who took part in this movie had a fun time, and it ended up getting many laughs out of me and my girlfriend. So yeah, this movie is bad, but it is pretty freaking good. This is the best that bad movies can do.
Jack & Jill
Look up “bad movies” in the dictionary and you’ll see a picture of Adam Sandler. Adam Sandler’s movies are usually pretty bad more often than not. The worst of the worst though is easily Jack and Jill. Just watch the trailer and see for yourself, I do not want to waste my breath on this one.
Tommy Wiseau is a national treasure that should be protected at all costs. The Room was just culturally misunderstood, okay? I know the dialogue, lighting, sets, screenplay, production values, and acting was all extremely poor, but that does not mean anything. In all seriousness, Tommy Wiseau is the greatest bad actor of all time, and the room is whatever the opposite of a magnum opus is. Tommy wrote, produced, directed, and starred in The Room. I can not really explain much else about this movie, just watch this and you will see for yourself. My personal favorite is when he knocks everything off the mantel in a fit of rage, but a picture frame is stopped from going anywhere by the camera that we are literally watching the movie through. Also, remember that this movie cost $6,000,000 to make.
And yes, the actual DVD cover is this blurry.
Samurai cop is for the bad buddy cop action movie you just don’t need to see. Joe Marshall and Frank Washington need to stop the dangerous Yakuza gang, which is a good story idea at face value. However, this film has some of the stiffest acting you will ever see, especially Joe Marshall. Played by Matt Hannon, he never once seems like he actually wants to be in the movie. My favorite part is the scene where the camera stays on him for like 60 seconds, and he says this long dialogue, but you can literally see his eyes moving to read the cue cards.
Leonard Part 6
Okay… here we go. So, I know having the now-disgraced comedian in the starring role is enough to consider it a bad movie… but let us just forget about him. Even without Bill Cos-been, this movie is still an absolute trainwreck. The jokes don’t even have punchlines, and when they do try to make a joke it is barely relative to any plot. But who even needs a good plot? There are numerous plot holes, such as an entire subplot of Leonards’s daughter being engaged being opened, and never touched again. The special effects are completely awful, every actor seems like they do not want to be there, none of the characters are even slightly likable, scenes go on insanely too long, and there is a fucking ostrich for some reason. Not to mention, there is an unnecessary amount of Coca-Cola ads all through the film. This movie lost nearly $20 million at the box office and is easy to see why. Now take everything I just described about the movie, and add Bill Cosby to it. Yup, number one bad movie easily. I am done talking about this movie because now I am pissed off.
How did these bad movies even end up being made? Your guess is as good as mine. Did I forget your favorite (or least favorite) bad movie? If I did, make sure to let me know in the comments below!
