The Avengers is horrible.
Manos: Hands of Fate is amazingly bad.

But I think the all-time worst movie I've seen is:
Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies.

Roadhouse. Senseless violence, howlingly bad plot.

One of the worst movies I have ever seen was "Boxing Helena."

I remember not too many years ago "Gigli" was a box office bomb...never saw it, never will.

I also remember Johnny Carson making fun of another movie disaster for a while..."Ishtar"

I usually don't go to a movie unless it's one I really want to see. The worst one I've seen in a long time was Napoleon Dynamite...granddaughter asked me to watch her favorite movie (she was 11). I tried several times to get her interested in one of her other DVDs, but noooo, we watch the whole stupid thing. Oh, the sacrafices we make in the name of grandparenthood.

"Detour," the 1945 version. It's structured like "Bambi vs. Godzilla," everything all sweet and nice for 30 minutes and then, kaboom, enter the femme fatale who turns it all nasty. It would be great at one of those midnight shows where everyone knows the lines. The Ann Savage role came in #3 on Time Magazine's list of the evilest villainesses in Hollywood history. It is so baaaad, I highly recommend it, film noir to the max, taken up a notch.

This is a tough crowd here. The only movie I've walked out on was Borat. Lost in Translation was boring. I like Bill Murray and Scarlet Johanson but not in this movie.

I can stop with reading a book when I've determined that I don't like it. With movies, though, I just keep watching and watching.

The only time I walked out from a theater was from watching a comedy. I was with a group of friends who decided to walk out. I probably would have stayed to the bitter end if it were just me. I can't remember the title at all.

Sometimes I find "popular?" comedies painful to watch. They get hype as being really funny and so I have my expectations way up high, and they are usually dashed.

I did like "There's Something About Mary" and thought it was hilarious. I also liked "Zoolander".

Oh, this is about awful movies--how about "Runaway Bride" with Julia Roberts in it? From my childhood, there were lots of awful Filipino movies, but they would be a hoot for me to watch now.

Last movie I walked out on was Get Shorty. Just mindles violence pretending to be a comedy. It got rave reviews, so I may be the only one who hated it.

Rented a movie a couple of weeks ago that I turned off after 20 minutes. According to the box, it was about astronauts trying to save the sun from going out. But, what I saw made absolutely no sense, so gave up. Can't even remember the title.

Some of the ones mentioned are ones I have liked. Others, I agree are stinkers.

I saw the worst movie ever made last night. Rented it from Netflix. My wife is Filipino and it was filmed in the Philippines so I thought she might like it. It starred a guy that was on the first Survivor show on TV. The name of it was "Gone" and it was made in 2002. Absolutely the worst ever, hands down.

Even worse, I had to read the book in college and do a report on it.

In this case, watching the movie while eating a pizza and drinking beer was the lesser of 2 evils.

There you go...there are a few that I know are so bad that I wont even bother There was another one a few years back Pluto Nash...with Eddie Murphy that was so bad, they didnt let the critics see it and pushed it right to video....and this thread isnt even getting to bad sequels...never saw Sister Act II-back in the habit, Weekend at Berny's II, etc.

So did the critics,, which is the reason I went to see it. While it may have been an interesting conversation in which to participate, merely watching the two of them have the conversation could not hold my interest.

I liked it too (My Dinner with Andre).

Hated Karate Kid III, maybe because I saw it during a way-too-long lay-over in Salt Lake City combined with sleep deprivation.

I think it helped if you were a New Yorker or lived there for awhile - NYC or specifically Manhattan is not normal.

My Dinner with Andre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The rest of the film is a conversation as Shawn tries to argue that living life as Gregory has done for the past five years is simply not possible for the vast majority of people. In response, Gregory suggests that what passes for normal life in New York in the late 1970s is more akin to living in a dream than it is to real life"
