    The one that comes to mind right off the bat is Dumb and Dumber. It is the dumbest movie EVER yet I find myself laughing every single time I watch it. Jeff Daniel’s really makes me laugh.

    Not a “bad” movie, but perhaps overrated. A Christmas Story. It is actually a good movie, but my dad and I have been known to watch it like 10 times on a single Christmas eve, which is definitely not warranted.

    I can’t think of any “bad” movies I would watch again. I really am not a big fan of movies; it’s hard enough to get me to watch one once.

    That’s easy: “Hercules in New York.”

    This little-known masterpiece was Arnold Schwarzenegger’s very first ever American movie, way back in 1970, long before Conan or even Red Sonja (an equally fantastic cinematic delight, by the way). The movie is about…well, pretty much what the title says. Hercules goes up to Mount Olympus (AKA Central Park, complete with graffiti-covered backdrop and the sound of honking traffic in the distance) and tells Zeus that he wants to go down to Earth to experience humanity. In New York. He gets into a bunch of shenanigans, fights a man in a grizzly bear suit, woos a clueless woman, befriends a whiny, stereotypical Jewish New Yorker, and justifies all the trouble he gets into with a shrug and an exclamation of, “But I am Hercules.”

    Two versions of this movie were released, the second version being dubbed because Arnold’s accent was so thick you could barely understand it. But that’s what makes the movie so remarkably funny. If you get a chance to see it, get the undubbed version. It is well worth it.

    The movie that inspired this question is one called, “Amazon Women on the Moon.” I remember it from college, and it was one of those that we rented when we knew we were going to be in a silly mood. It was a series of skits, shorts, whatever, each one dumber than the last. But most were laugh-out-loud funny.

    ok are we going with “bad” movies as in ones that shouldn’t even be watched?

    I am going with The Tommyknockers one would believe that has all the good makings of a righteous horror flick what with that little Tommyknockers Tommyknockers knocking at your door…OH WHAT THE HELL! that has got to be one of the dumbest movies ever!

      Whatever your definition of “bad movie” is. It’s such a subjective category, but it’s fun!

        When I read the question, my thoughts went to a movie I knew was really bad but I liked it anyway. I think a bad movie is one my son Toby would like. We like opposite movies and he loved Dumb and Dumber too!!! If a movie were “really” bad, I wouldn’t finish it. I won’t waste time on the television if I’m not enjoying what’s on. In Dumb and Dumber when Jeff Daniel’s is sitting on that woman’s toilet……you know how dumb it is but you laugh anyway.

        That’s how I took it anyway.

      You know, all Stephen King books are horrible movies. They just can’t make good monsters in movies. Books on the other hand…The Tommyknockers scared me for one whole summer when I was up in Canada taking care of my grandma. I made the mistake of reading that on a farm with LOTS of out buildings and I was scared to death. I felt like a ninny. But the movie was just like IT, horrible. I got so scared reading it one night when everyone had gone to bed that I was scared to go down the hall to my room and slept on the couch. I was in my 30’s at the time so I can’t blame youth.
