when we watched Scream at the cinema with a few friends we were nearly thrown out because we made so much fun of that horrible film....

The only movie that I can think of is Dumb and Dumber and then of course Dumb and Dumberer.

I agree with you there Phinz, a lot of it can come down to the frame of mind that you are in, who you are with, when you are watching it, etc.


That said, I do have a few that I was far from crazy from (off the top of my head)...

-Only the Lonely (my least favourite Candy movie)

-The Most Fetile Man In Ireland (yes, it's really called that, and I implore you do not waste money on renting it!)

-The vast majority of Adam Sandler movies

-"The Never Ending Story" (more like the story that should never have begun )

-Battlefield Earth (needs no comment)

-Just about all of Madonna's movie (I'll cut her some slack for her role in "A League of Their Own")

-Waterworld (sorry, but I gave up all hope on liking this flick the moment that Coster cut off their hair, that was so mean!)

-All of the "Tremors" movies

-Carrie (Not every Stephen King book needs to be turned into a movie)

-Any "b" movie where a clown was the villian

-Spice World (and for that matter just about every movie where a pop singer has tried to "act", from Brit to Vanilla Ice)

-Every J-Lo movie ("Selena" wasn't that bad)

-Baby Gebiues (Dear gads, I heard that they made a sequel in 2004, is this true?)

While I do truly see where this film was trying to go, the worst movie that I've seen this year was a 2003 Danish movie entitled, "De Gronne Slagtere". If anyone else has seen this film I'd be so curious to hear what you think about it. DH liked it, but I thought it was gory as can be, but more over the idea could have been carried out a lot better.


(A snippet of trivia, did you guys know that in 1971 there was a "b" movie put out called "Let's Scare Jessica to Death" )

Actually I like Adam Sandler. I understand he can get on the nerves of certain people, but I dig his humour most of the time, also watching Spanglish and Punch Drunk Love, I think he can display much more depth than he gets credited for when / if he chooses to. I would really like to see him evolve into more multi dimentional actor/comedian, IMO he is capable of it.

i just saw a bit of the animated "8 crazy nights", by adam sandler. now, i like most of his stuff, after snl (i thought he was pretty boring on snl), but this animated one was really bad. his voice was extremely annoying.

some of the sandler stuff i liked was "50 first dates", "happy gilmore", and "big daddy".

I love adam sandler too. I like that he uses his 3 buddies in just about everything he does. Rob Schnieder, Peter Dante and Alan Covert. Same with any of the movies with Rob Schnieder. It's not uncommon to find Adam Sandler or the other 2 in his also.
