People Are Revealing The Movies That They Enjoy Only Because They're So Bad

3 weeks ago 42



I am not ashamed to say I have watched at least 3/4 of the movies in this post.

We all have our guilty pleasures or "comfort movies" that we like to watch over and over — regardless that they're objectively awful. One favorite of many of my friends is Batman & Robin, which, even though it is not great, is actually a fun watch.

Recently, Reddit user Kitsoua92 was curious about exactly that type of movie when they asked: "What's a movie that you enjoy only because it's so bad?"

Lots of people responded with their favorite bad films, which are also ones likely to have "Razzie Award-winning" in their Wikipedia. Below are the top, best, and most-often repeated movies:

1. "Mamma Mia! The moment Pierce Brosnan starts signing you can't help but wet yourself laughing."

"It's more or less Love Actually, but set in Greece and with singing. The movie has to be good at exactly one thing, and it truly is."

2. "The Day After Tomorrow. It somehow manages to be better than the sum of its parts. I think they just had a good time making it and it really shows onscreen."

"I had completely forgotten about Teen Witch until I read your comment, so I had to look it up to make sure I was remembering right. It has 43% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is pretty good for a movie targeted at preteen girls when all the critics are adults, and I think mostly dudes, lol."

5. "The original Super Mario Bros. movie from the early '90s."

7. "Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny, but only because it's just a tribute to the greatest movie in the world."

"I can’t watch it alone, but put me in a movie theater with a couple hundred other people throwing spoons, singing and yelling at the screen, and it’s one of my faves."

"Oh man, that movie is awesomely bad! First time I saw it, I was sick and loopy and thought I had hallucinated some of it, including the sewer surfing. Nope! It's just the way the movie is!"

10. "Street Fighter from 1994."

"Raul Julia is phenomenal in this movie. I watch it purely because he is in it. He nails every scene. RIP."

11. "Tremors. I can’t help it. I loved the first two."

"Tremors is in no way a 'bad' film, though. It's extremely well put together with a good three-act structure. It uses proper setups (e.g., the explosives cause the Graboids to hightail it in the opposite direction, which sets up the final kill). The characters are all likable. The SFX are almost all extremely well done, with only one really bad comp job. It's in no way a bad film."

12. "The original Road House. My two favorite lines are: 'Pain don't hurt' and 'A polar bear fell on me!'"

"Road House is the unintentionally funniest movie of all time, and it only gets funnier the more you talk about it."

13. "Showgirls. I got high and my husband insisted we watch it. I know it's a camp classic, but wow! It was so hard to watch, and I felt so much secondhand embarrassment. But then you hit a threshold where all you can do is laugh till your sides hurt."

"It's the train wreck movie you can't stop looking at, and, honestly, the storyline isn't that bad. Not very original, but not bad. It's Elizabeth Berkeley's overacting that made it the cult classic that it is. (Seriously the scene with the fries was too much. So many perfectly good fries wasted.)"

14. "Sharknado"

15. "Shoot 'Em Up. It's terrible, ridiculous trash, and I love it so much. Clive Owen is brilliant in that. ^_^"

17. "Alien vs. Predator. It’s so dumb. The crappy dialogue, the bad acting, the slow-motion Predator dreadlocks. I love it."

"This. The movie is full of stupid characters, a stupid plot, stupid action. The movie is so hilariously bad that it becomes good — I watch it a lot."

18. And finally, "Twilight. Although it does have some actually good things about it."
