Some movies are like watching a train wreck - so awful, but you just can't pull yourself away. What movie is so deliciously absurd, un-self-aware, hokey, etc. that you find yourself feeling a special affection for it?

I'm going with Under Siege 2: Dark Territory

Two main reasons:

1.) "BOOM! Earthquake in Mid-air."
2.) "You think this is bein' shot?? This ain't bein' shot!"

*scans IMDB*

Am I right in observing that this movie is about a sentient big rig trying to run down Emilio Estivez?

J-Men Forever. Lots of classic 1930s serials overdubbed with a drug plot. If you like the badness that is Airplane, J-Men is for you.

I don't see why not. I know I spent a couple of weeks repeating all the episode II swoony dialogue to torment my friends. Almost made it worth seeing.

Oooo...that's a tough one.

It'd have to be The Stuff.

In the opening scene an old guy discovers a white goo bubbling up from the ground and his first reaction is to taste it. It then goes on to be marketed as a snack food. It's painfully awesome.

Indeed, horrible script and acting, and, well, everything.

But the fight scenes in Apaches are still unbelievably cool to this day.

I liked Executive Decision, because Steven Seagall's character died early.

My favorite bad movie is Over the top ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093692/ ) featuring Sylvester Stalone as an arm-wrestling truck driver.

The "worst" movies that I rated 5 stars on Netflix were Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore.

Sorry, there is no way you can call this a bad movie though... it's one of my favourite PSP movies to take for long boring days... add in Dodgeball and Sean of the Dead and you've got lovely.

Now if you want bad movies that you love... I'd have to say... any of the compilation movies... you know... Not Another Teen Movie, Disaster Movie, SuperHero Movie. All things where you know it's going to suck from the inception but... you still can't help wanting to see how stupid it'll be.

"Big Trouble in Little China" is the epitome of a classic bad movie.

What? Who ever called that a "bad" movie????

To expand on my point.

Rotten Tomatoes:

Big Trouble in Little China: 83%

Maximum Overdrive: 10%
