    Noticed the favourite film thread, so thought I would start this one. Apologies if its been done already.

    Harlem Nights - I'd paid my money so I was staying - worst film ever.

    That was of course until I saw:

    Churchill: The Hollywood Years - bloody awful, the outtakes at the end were the best part.

    Work in a Cinema now, so didn't pay for the last one.

    There have been other films that have been bad, but I'm talking really crap films.

    Actually, while I remember.

    The film that got most people walking out in the last year was 'The Fox and the Child'. We had it for 2 days and then pulled it.

    Wow... Well, I tend to repress the worst ones, but one I remember being particularly bad was Catwoman, what was (oscar winner!!) Halle Berry thinking when she took on this one!
    I'm sure there are some I've seen that were far worse though.

    Pretty much everything but specifics-

    Napoleon Dynamite
    (the new) War of the Worlds
    Any teen comedy or teen horror. They're either horrifically unfunny or so obvious and cliché that it becomes an unintentional comedy.

    All I can think of now. But still most films.

    Somewhere in New England, USA.
    Barb Wire: friend is a Pam Anderson nut- so he dragged me along for this turd. Absolutely Awful.

    Ultraviolet: watched about 10 minutes of this on tv before *click!*.

    Howard the Duck: The only redeeming thing about this film was Lea Thompson in a miniskirt, back when she was cute.

    Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever: hand me a barf bag.

    ANY of those "Movie" movies: Horrible "comedy". About as fun as having your toenails chewed off by diseased rodents.

    I'm shocked! Although it's made me think I might enjoy Juno if you didn't enjoy that either. ;)

    The worst I've seen was AI. I worked in a cinema at the time, and in spite of seeing it free, during company time, with popcorn and illicit beer, and all my splendid co-workers, it was still two hours I resent the time I spent watching it. Absolutely dire.

    anything with Ice Cube, Keanu Reeves, Paul walker, Vin Desiel, Steven Segal,( i could probably go on and on) in them, are garbage...IMO

    Same country as Santa Claus
    Artificial Intelligence: AI. The whole movie was: "Where is my mommy? I want my mommy." It was so bad I had to walk out of the theater.

    Worst I have seen?

    1. Saw (I just don't get this genre of gratuitous torture flicks…)
    2. Matrix "Reloaded"…
    3. Jaws "The Revenge" (A growling great white follows Brody mum all the way to the Bahamas to exact revenge? :rolleyes:)

    Special Award:
    But, my all time favourite worst movie has to be Faye Dunaway chewing carpet in Mommy Dearest.
    A movie so bad you have got to love it.

    The Kop
    RPM is by far the worst film in the world. It is actually so bad I have recommended it to people as they need to see how bad things can get.

    Octane - was on the TV very late night. It went downhill went there was a rave in the back of an oil tanker :confused:

    My dad has the curious knack of being able to pick some of the worst movies we've seen. (To his credit, once in a blue moon he's picked good ones)

    The one that takes the cake is "The Wizard of Speed and Time" a REALLY grade-z film if there ever was one.

    Then, he picked this one. I know we've seen other, probably equally horrid, movies but those two seem to have scarred my mind the most.

    Signs, The Happening & The Village - Worst endings ever...

    All the "insert genre here" Movie films (Scary Movie, Date Movie, Superhero Movie etc etc) - How any of the "writers" have any dignity left is beyond me...

    Lindsey Lohan films - I once had to sit through Freaky Friday with an ex girlfriend, I lost a lot of brain cells that day...

    Recent Adam Sandler films - He's sold out, and then some...

    Get Smart - I wanted to like it for Carrell, but sadly it was just too crap...

    Hancock - The trailer made it awesome, the film made it boring...

    That's all that I can think of for now.

    ^^ I thought The Village ended pretty good. I like endings that are dramatic like that.

    And I agree with you wholeheartedly about Sandler movies. I really don't see why he's so popular..

    Without a doubt, it has to be City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold. I saw it for free, and I felt like I was ripped off.

    Be Kind Rewind. dumb as hell, didn't even watch it all the way through.

    (it's the only one I can think of at the moment... )

    You don't mess with the Zohan was pretty stupid but probably not the worst I've seen.

    I liked Hancock, whoever said it sucked.

    Well I watched a lot of "B" movies in my day, so a bad film to me is only really bad when it's trying to be good.

    In recent memory (last couple of years) I'd have to say my list would be:
    Smokin' Aces
    Kull the Conqueror -oh dear god why did my 'friend' rent that POS?
    The Bank Job

    The top award for me has to go to Fargo, I went to see it in the dollar theatre at Uni, I almost demanded my dollar back.

    The one movie that didn't make my list, but I won't be surprised to see it here is Shoot 'Em Up, it's a movie that you can't take seriously for a second, but they made it fun to watch. In my mind that puts it in the rare "B" movie with "A" budget category. Also it earns points for being shot (almost entirely) in a 5km radius around my condo.

    You seem to have a thing with fingers. What did you think of Edward Scissorhands? :D Admit it, that freaked you right out!

    I agree with jimmi, Napoleon Dynamite was awful!

    And I thought Interview With The Vampire would be alright as it stars Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Christian Slater, Kirsten Dunst, Thandie Newton and all these big names but it really was terrible!
