InmanRoshi: Eddie Murphy's entire imdb page since the Beverly Hills Cop 2.


That's the whole problem with this list. It's supposed to be good actors in bad movies. Hulk Hogan? Eddie Murphy? Adam Sandler? I don't think any of them qualify as "good"

Surly U. Jest: luidprand: TuteTibiImperes: Sybarite: Alicia Silverstone and Sigourney Weaver in "Vamps" (2012)

First, I don't think anyone has thought of Alicia Silverstone as a "huge celebrity" in well over a decade now. Second, I was wondering what ever happened to Amy Heckerling.

I think Krysten Ritter has more celebrity cache than Silverstone these days.  In fact, I think I want to see that movie now just because she's in it.

Amy Heckerling AND Krysten Ritter? How did I not hear of this earlier?

It played one (1) theater and made a little over $3K in the two weeks it was out. Went to video shortly thereafter.


I believe this is actually a pretty common practice. Something to do with contracts of appearing in a theatre before going to video. I don't think they are really considered theatrical releases but I'm not sure.

LonMead: Fuggin Bizzy: Summer Glau's Love Slave: 3rd Matrix movie.

/First one had so much promise.

THIS. It's been a while since I was disappointed as hard as I was by the conclusion to the Matrix trilogy.

I actually liked the end of the third Matrix movie.

Because it was the end.

How can you tell when a movie is truly bad? When it doesn't even make it onto bad movie lists.

So much promise, so much potential...


And Marvel can ALWAYS poke Warner Bros. for that turd in SO MANY WAYS~!

/That's your "Avengers"...HAH~!

"Be cool".

Take funny and cool original movie ("Get shorty"), suck all the life, fun and cool out of it, fill it with a lot of known actors, and produce a massive pile of suck called "sequel". God, what a waste of time that movie was.

But, as been pointed out elsewhere, The Rock was hilarious.

Hearing him sing "You Ain't Woman Enough to Take My Man" was the funniest thing I had heard in years.

I kinda liked Pluto Nash, it wasn't the best movie ever made but it's definitely worth a watch on a bored afternoon.

bite your tongue!  Mars Attacks was awesome... ok, maybe not awesome, but certainly doesn't belong on a list with Battlefield Earth.

MARS ATTACKS could have been a classic, except that it is over-saturated with the foul stench of Tim
Burton's "I can fetishize crap retro media because I'm a BRILLIANT AUTEUR!" poseurness.


No.  Mars Attacks was a middling 10 minute SNL sketch expanded into a full-length movie with an all-star cast.  Even if it wasn't the case, it looked like Burton directed that movie like he was feeling really pissed off about something.

SNL was around in 1962?

You can't set out to make camp, and Burton knows it.

He was trying to make an 'affectionate spoof', but forgot about the 'affectionate' part.

I meant Mars Attacks was like a middling SNL sketch blown up to feature film length--something that would have been mildly amusing at 5 to 10 minutes but interminable at 100.

Saiga410: If you are saying Mad Mad World is a bad movie, you and me are going to have words.  That was a brilliant film.


This. I'm not a huge fan of slapstick by any means, but the sequence where the gas/service station gets completely destroyed makes me laugh to this day.

/of course, virtually anything with Jonathan Winters in it gets a pass with me.
