So I guess if you love it how can it really be considered a bad movie? Anyway maybe you prefer to call it guilty pleasures?

TEXAS Chainsaw MASSACRE has some silly dialogue at times but scared the shit out of me and is a landmark in American Horror.

Bob and Doug McKenzie up in the great white North welcome us to their movie eh? Strange Brew. It's even funnier if you have been to Northern Ontario.

HOLLYWOOD KNIGHTS Robert Wuhl had some laugh-out-loud scenes.

What do you have gang?

STEAMROLLER!!! You hoser...

Laughed my ass off first time I saw Strange Brew. Wasn't expecting to as I was never a SCTV fan, but couldn't help it. And I loved the casting of Max von Sydow was brilliant. Why he'd appear in such a film always escaped me, but glad he did.

Recently learned of Max's passing in March of this year. So many rolls even more memorable than Brew.

=======================================================================================================

When I think of bad films I love, a/k/a "guilty pleasures", my first thought always turns to Big Trouble in Little China and Russell's Jack "It's all in the reflexes" Burton. Add in a young Kim Cattrall, a handful of Asian-heritage actors you know you've seen in "a few other movies", a magic potion or two... then shake well... and there it is.

Next one in line varies, but Road House is always in the pack.

My wife would kill me if I did not give a shoutout to Sharknado... although for me... nah... not in my pack. Something disqualifying about a movie that is intentionally bad. Maybe I'm a bad movie purest... ;)

One that I originally paid to see and hated, but have since warmed to (a worthy subset?) due to a couple HBO viewings is Mars Attacks. So maybe out-of-pocket cost is a factor...

Anaconda makes it mostly on the back of J-Lo, but it's the regurgitated Voight at the end of his over-the-top performance that cements this selection.

 

Enough for now, but feels like there has to be at least one Schwarzenegger entry for the list to be legit... maybe Total Recall, but it was pretty good at the time. Its FXs have just suffered badly with time... although they sure as hell did not help the remake. So maybe the remake is the one... but that means finding another Ahnold flick.

I happen to like both  The Postman and Waterworld.  Two Costner Movies that got slammed pretty hard.  

Waterworld was basically  "Road Warrior on Water".

Up THE CREEK Shoddyof ANIMAL HOUSE rip off starring Tim Matheson based around to Whitewater raft race or some bullshit of that sort but had some laugh out loud funny parts. Some people like PORKY'S but I thought it was a piece of shit and I hated it too.

What's Up Tiger Lily?

Woody Allen buys the rights to a low budget, Japanese spy flick and "dubs" his own script into it.

First time I saw it I was stoned and it was hilarious. Second time... straight... still funny, but not quite so much. Except when he gives a bartender (who inexplicably has a kive chicken under the bar) a Peter Lorre accent plus a few other moments.

Love it and own the Lovin Spoonful soundtrack.

Only saw Barfly once, but don't remember it being "bad"either...

Mickey Rourke was "hot" back then and while Faye Dunaway's star had faded some, she could still act. It just wasn't a very "comfortable" film to watch... not Blue Velvet uncomfortable, but not an easy one.

 

Never saw Nomads.... but Adam Ant? Pretty bad there...

I know I wasted ~$6 on Friend or Foe once upon a time.

Goody Goody Two Shoes? WTF was I thinking?

I believe you are thinking of Chicago's Second City Improv...  which Saul did come out of about the same time as Stephen Colbert and IIRC Steve Carrell.

Back in the seventies it gave us most of the original SNL cast.

 

SCTV was a 70s/80s skit comedy show that came from "The Great White North", a/k/a the Canadian Broadcast Corporation. It was kinda their answer to SNL.

One recurring skit was the McKenzie Brothers' Great White North, which gave birth to Strange Brew.
