Default Memorably horrible....

It has already been mentioned, but Ishtar was excruciatingly horrible (1987). The advertising leading up to its highly anticipated release built it up as the movie of the decade.....a can't miss. My buddy and I saw it on opening night and were sooooo disappointed. It was very tough not to walk out, but we thought it may get better as we watched.......wrong. The reviews that followed in the next few days were devastating...and very much deserved. Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty probably still recoil at its mention. A real $51 million clunker (box office $14.4).

It's really hard to say.

About 20 or so years ago, I used to go to the $1 theater with an ex. We would get really high and go watch a movie, and boy did we watch some duds.

The Spice Girls movie is right at the top of the list, but I'm sure there were worst movies I've seen.

I tend to think that "worst movie" really needs to be a major Hollywood production. The type of movie that involved meetings, production notes, lots of money and lots of people approving things all along the way. I don't think it's fair to kick the indy filmmaker who made a low budget film with very little money or talent, but put their heart and soul into it.

so based on that:

Legends of the Fall (seriously, wtf? can a movie get more pretentious?)

The English Patient (oh wait, never mind, yes it can! don't care that it won an Oscar , it is the worst sort of awards bait twaddle)

Sucker Punch (Zack Snyder's self indulgent mess of a film that found a way to make science fiction samurais and scantily clad action heroine's boring . I don't know if I have cared less about a movie in my life)

Hard to say or define, but when I was a kid I remember being so exited when I heard they were doing a Howard the Duck movie. The comic books were insightful and funny, and it was really a franchise that was getting a lot of heat, but the movie was so terrible, it actually killed what was potentially a very lucrative franchise.

Recently, Suburbicon was as sorry of a movie you could hope to ask to see.

I donít know if itís the worst, but Shakespeare in Love has to be the most overrated. How that movie ever beat out Saving Private Ryan for Best Picture is beyond me.

Saving Private Ryan was and is a great movie!

I propose a new rating scale called The Bad Factor. At some point, when you start thinking a movie is really bad, (A) guess how long you've been watching it, then (B) check how long it's been on. Divide A by B for your Bad Factor.

The converse would be true as well. Even good movies that are slowly paced don't seem long.

Not necessarily bad but very overrated:
The Hours
American Beauty
