For me it got to be Point Break (1991). It's definitely a "guy cult film" but, whatever earnest intentions they had filming it just comes off as ridiculous and cheesy to me. I can't help but think that whoever wrote the script really disliked Keanu Reeves. So when I watch the movie and witness the non stop abuse Reeves must endure, I can't help but giggle throughout the film.
The naked butt surveillance footage evidence always makes me burst out laughing, and I'm in tears when Keanu Reeves' character recognizes the naked butt again on some surfer dude.

Point Break wants to be so cool yet its wrapped in layers of hidden cheese only I seem to notice. That makes it my favorite unintentional funny movie ever.

Planet of the Apes (2001) - some of, well a lot of the dialogue in that thing is just laughably bad.  You can see Hollywood trying to shovel their usual political correctness on the audience but it's so clumsily done that I genuinely can't tell if it was an intentional parody or not.  I think it wasn't, which makes it all the more funny.  And then there was some part where the apes wouldn't cross a stream because they were afraid of water.  I mean, they drink the stuff, right?  If you can put it in your body without harm chances are pretty good you can walk through it.  And all the jumping around like crickets;  where in the world did they come up with that idea?

The Exorcist.  That thing is freakin' hi-larious!

I haven't the foggiest idea how anyone can take it seriously.

The original European version of The Vanishing was extremely funny to me. I thought the ending was a punchline straight out of EAPoe. I was the only person in the theater who laughed at the ending.

The Mist (2007) was funny for me because I had already read the novella a bunch of times long before ever seeing it. The CGI monsters, while well-done for CGI, were still obviously CGI and therefore not very scary, just computer-cartoony funny. But that still worked well for the over-the-top comic book style of every Stephen King story. When the bible-thumping Ms. Carmody ultimately got her comeuppance via getting her brains blown out at one of the film's climactic scenes, I was literally the only one in the movie theater that laughed out loud with a hellacious "YEAH!" Even my dad, who I went to watch it with, had pointed out "I think you were the only one in the theater that laughed at that part. It was mildly amusing."  BounceGiggle

Zelmo- It's essentially a blaxploitation movie and not a very realistic one. Wouldn't Mookie go to jail the next day? and why did they goad the guy into saying the n word. and who "fought the power" ?  NO one as far as I can tell. they destroyed their neighborhood in the name of racial purity. Burning down a pizza place is the definition of cutting of your nose to spite your face.

I was agreeing with you. The funny picture only illustrates the silliness of the movie. Yes, Mookie would have gone to jail for inciting a riot, vandalism, among other things. The "n word" scene with Sal the Pizza Shop Owner was meant to teach all of us a lesson...never mind the blatant anti-white and anti-Asian racism that permeated all through the rest of the film up to that point. "Fight The Power" was Spike Lee completely misinterpreting the message of the Public Enemy song, which was about black people getting more involved in politics and "fighting the power" -- or the system that was keeping black people down -- with a vote...and that's it.

Spike Lee misses the point a lot in his movies, which is funny because he is supposed to be the one making the point in the first place. His most recent transgression was Miracle at St. Anna (2008), which was filled with so many historical inaccuracies that it deserves a review by Andrew right here at Badmovies.org, but also apparently gave Spike Lee the right to call out Clint Eastwood for basically being a racist for not portraying the Black Man's contributions to World War II on Iwo Jima accurately in Eastwood's Letters From Iwo Jima (2006)...never mind that the film was telling the Japanese side of the Battle of Iwo Jima, not the American side; and the U.S. military was not integrating blacks and whites into the same units until 1953, not that the Japanese troops on the island would have noticed nor cared either way.

Though I enjoyed Do The Right Thing (1989) strictly as racially charged comedy, I do not take it anywhere near as serious as Spike Lee did. And I certainly don't rank it up there with the more important films of what I like to call the Black Hollywood Renaissance of the Late 1980s, which included films like Mississippi Burning (1988), Glory (1989), Lean On Me (1989), and of course Harlem Nights (1989). (okay, I'm joking about that last one)

It was a colorful well made movie. I think in when the smoke clears, no pun intended, it has some issues for the reasons you describe. it's better than the one with the guy with the bionic dick as far as blaxploitation goes.


A few months ago there was a list of his top 50 movies and Mel Gibson's Apocalypto was one. That makes sense they are both very populist, Pat Buchanan ish preserve the community in tone.

nice thread



I've read loads of reviews for this film and they all seem to agree it's a solid but pretty unremarkable werewolf based who-dun-it... but no one ever points out it's a work of unintentionally camp comedy genius, which is how I see it. I must've watched it 50+ times and still get the lol's...

Despite its heavy subject matter, I found the cheesy props used in Schindler's List (1993) to be rather comical. The silly blood squirting from bullet holes in Jewish heads, which were so obviously a bloodlike liquid squirting from a not-very-hidden tube and bag prop on the virtual-unfortunate actor's or actress' body, rendered the image that we were supposed to take from the film as practically useless.


Also with some of the dead body props, which were so obviously fake. Why not use a real actor in place of a dummy prop?

As much accolades that were awarded to Steven Spielberg over this movie, it was definitely Amateur Night as far as his special effects team was concerned. I've seen better movie effects done on absolutely horrible B-movies, some of which were reviewed right here on Badmovies.org!  BounceGiggle
