According to @mvmac it's the one where Will Ferrell plays Shawn Clement.

Yea, that post got me thinking about creating this thread.

Hmmm... I was (am) a big fan of Dumb and Dumber, but the sequel, Dumb and Dumberer was HORRIBLE.

Eyes Wide Shut might be up on the list of movies I've watched all the way through. Seriously contemplated leaving at several points in that one.

Silence of the Hams.

Seriously.

We rented it while in college, thinking it would be a hilarious send-up of Silence of the Lambs, given that Dom DeLuise was in it.

Well, it was a send up... but NOT hilarious. I don't think we made it 15 minutes in before we all looked at each other in disgust and turned it off.

Ishtar (1987)

Written and directed by Elaine May and starring Academy Award winning duo Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman as "Roger and Clarke", two untalented lounge singers who travel to Morocco in hopes of finding a gig. Due to unanticipated problems with filming in the desert—which resulted in numerous reshoots—the film ran over budget by $30 million. While its final budget cost was $55 million, Ishtar earned only $14,375,181 at the North American box office leading Ishtar to become synonymous with " box office flop ". The film was also subject to harsh reviews from critics. Roger Ebert stated that "Ishtar is a truly dreadful film, a lifeless, massive, lumbering exercise in failed comedy"; [129] Gene Siskel called it "shockingly dull" and "dim-witted"; [130] and together they selected it as the worst film of 1987 on Siskel & Ebert & The Movies . [131] The film was nominated for Worst Picture and Worst Screenplay in the 1987 Golden Raspberry Awards , winning one for Worst Director. San Jose Mercury News claimed that "Time has not improved this film's reputation as being one of the worst ever made." [132] Time Out suggested it was "so bad it could have been deliberate" and called it "one of the worst films ever made", [133] while Hot Air referred to it as "The Citizen Kane of big-budget, A-list vehicular homicides." [134] It was included in Michael Sauter's The Worst Movies of All Time book [103] and Richard Roeper included it on his list of the 40 worst films he had seen. In 1999 Time placed the film on a list of the 100 worst ideas of the 20th century.

Google it - some pretty gross stuff in there. I don't wanna write the details and make someone nauseous.

You guys haven't even mentioned any movie starring John Saxon, worst actor of all time!  I guess I must separate movies that I have seen from those I would never see, like Ishtar above.

I would say, Day of the Dolphin starring George C Scott.  Truly epic in its level of bad. It was Leonard Pinth Garnell bad.

I loathed the remake of the Hills Have Eyes . It was so disgusting and disturbing to me that I had to walk out halfway through. Maybe it was the opening sequence of atomic explosions coupled with deformed bodies in jars, or the mutated people who kept attacking the main characters? I couldn't take it anymore when one of those mutants took a gun and pointed it a baby's head laughing. I had to leave. Just an awful, awful movie.

I'm not sure it's the worst movie of all time. And I'm not sure these next ones I'm going to list are the worst either, but I do think they're abysmal:

Pearl Harbor

Pi

Ready to Rumble

The Family that Preys

Lola Versus

Analyze This

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

Valentine's Day

That's My Boy

Friends with Benefits

Superman Returns

Juno

Slumdog Millionaire

The A-Team

The Butterfly Effect

The Matrix Reloaded

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

The Dreamers

Delta Force One: The Lost Patrol

To Rome with Love

Remember Me

Jersey Girl

Gigli

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

Rising Sun

Greenberg

Batman and Robin

Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever

The Room (2003)

The Room has to be seen to be believed. They have some stuff on Youtube, but I won't link to it because it's pretty damn awkward in really odd ways.

Agree on these.  the others are in my, "Would not even give them a try" category.

Pearl Harbor - Ben Affleck should have been sunk with the Arizona.

That's My Boy - Awful, awful movie.  Lasted 10 minutes.

Friends with Benefits - 20 minutes

The A-Team - So bad I was compelled to see if everyone dies in the end.

The Matrix Reloaded - Weird.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - Harrison, you let me down dude!

Batman and Robin - My 14 years old Godson would make a more believable Batman.

I actually know the writer for Analyze This .  He was in my brother's class in High School, Peter Tolan.  He wrote for Murphy Brown among other things.  Nice guy and very funny.  Movie was OK, but not a worst ever.

Haha, oops! Darn internet making the world too small. I was not expecting to run into someone who actually knew someone from one of these movies.

My fault. I dunno why I didn't like it. I normally like Crystal and De Niro. Something about it, I can't explain. I haven't seen it in years, but my memory of it was really negative for some reason.

No hard feelings though, obviously. You have to drag your soul through broken glass to get a real movie made, so respect to these folks for even trying.

Juno

Slumdog Millionaire

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Rising Sun

Surprised that you think Juno and Slumdog Millionaire were "abysmal."  I thought those were both really good movies.  Neither falls into the category of movies I re-watch on TV (but that is a special category that doesn't directly correlate with quality anyway) but they were both good.

I really like Rising Sun too ... but will happily admit that I'm likely in the minority on that one.

As far as Crystal Skull goes, I think that one is simply the worst of the 4 (which means it couldn't have been that good because number 2 was horrible) but that is about as far as I'd go.  My co-workers are also adamant about how bad this movie is, but I think they are just romanticizing how good the previous ones were.  They forget how cheesy they've all been. :)

First of all, let me just say that I'm normally not this much of a hater. That said, it is fun to bash movies with other people :-D Obviously I'm no film critic!

Slumdog millionaire: I dunno, I just think Danny Boyle was waaaaaaaay out of his depth trying to make this movie. To me, it just did not seem like he had much of a grasp on Indian culture, and thus his commentary about it I found to be pretty sophomoric.

Rising Sun: Wow... really, GD??? LOL. :-D Now, I can't totally hate this movie because it is "awesomely bad," but come on now! That said, the scene where Connery is playing golf is pretty sweet.

Crystal Skull: South Park captured how I feel about this movie haha! I do agree that many people, including me, romanticize the first three, when in reality, they are pretty silly themselves. Still, I saw them when I was a kid, and thus, those three will forever be enshrined in my movie hall of fame.

Juno: Ummmm... hmmmm... You're making me recall Juno now, so now I dislike you :-P ... okay, seriously, Diablo Cody. Not a fan. Ellen Page as a preggers manic pixie dream girl? I dunno... There are just some movies that rub me the wrong way haha. The note ending was a nice touch though. ANd maybe Juno isn't a true manic pixie dream girl , but it's too close for comfort.

Seriously, there isn't a whole lot of logic in these opinions of mine. Let's just be clear on that. :beer:

Ok, technically, she doesn't fall into the MPDG box, but it's for some reason close....

Like I said, there's little logic in these opinions.

In no particular order:

LOL on the "mpdg!"  I've never heard that term before, but that sums it up prety well.  Now I'm mad at myself because I made you think more about this movie, which in turn, now has me thinking more about it and I'm remembering things like:  The "cutesy" (and I say that as the exact opposite of a compliment) soundtrack, complete with the dorky song the two of them sang at the end (or was it the beginning?) on the porch.  Whatever.  The way everybody is enamored with "Cups" right now reminds me of that stupid song.  (And cups is 1000 times better than that stupid thing was)

Yes, Rising Sun is perfectly described as an "awesomely bad movie."    It's like an "Ice Ice Baby" of bad movies. ;)  Don't you just love a Japanese-ish Sean Connery??  I mean, come on man!!!  Also, I was 18 or 19 when it came out, so any movie that basically opens with a steamy sex scene gets extra points when your a teenager.  Especially one that is caught on film and replayed a few more times. ;)  Also, I like most anything that has something to do with Michael Crichton.

Slumdog?  You could be right.  I don't know much about Indian culture at all (except that they love their dance numbers at the end of all movies!!) so you could be right.  I just remember being entertained in the theater.

And Crystal Skull ... you obviously got my point, and I do agree that it wasn't good so there's really nothing to discuss.  But really ... Why is it so hard to believe that you could survive a nuclear explosion by crawling into a refrigerator???  It could happen!!! ;)

    • From this, it actually looks like he gets the club back on plane through impact. This is wild.
    • That's an exaggeration. He's obviously shown that he has the potential to compete but he struggles with consistency month to month. I think everyone who watches golf underestimates just how rare it is to have back to back seasons as the likes of Tiger, Jack, or Arnold- especially in a field as talented as it is in 2016. I'm a huge believer that these past few seasons have been some of the best tour golf ever played in the history of the game, especially when it's looked at in terms of depth. Week to week, it's really anyone's tournament to take, and it hasn't always been like that.
    • Trump paying out the $1M to a wealthy individual is a non-story.  The entire story is a non-story, I haven't seen it mentioned on any of the news channels and beyond a cut and paste no one else is covering it.  If this was something the democrats or liberal media really thought could hurt Trump we'd be hearing about it constantly.  No one cares when rich guys get into a dispute, there's no damage control to be done here. The real reason it's even in the news is because Trump's charity (not his golf course) paid out money to Greenberg's charity and it was a potential inappropriate use of the charity funds.  
      I'm guessing those that voted Trump should pay are basing this off their general dislike for Trump or his platform as a POTUS candidate.  Anyone who read the facts and didn't have a bias against Trump would conclude paying off Greenberg was not Trump's responsibility.  
    • Genetics definitely play a role, but not as much as people think. If you have a 6 foot frame to work with from the get-go, you will obviously be able to make a bigger swing with less effort than someone who stands 5 feet tall with shorter arms. A bigger swing path = more time to gain momentum through impact. This is where technique and flexibility come into play, though. Having a large frame/swing only correlates to distance if you can do two things, 1) swing at a high rate of speed through the slot, 2) maintain a square club face on impact. I am not a tall or big person by any means, but I gain a lot of my strokes by being able to hit a wedge or low iron into the majority of holes I play. The biggest adjustment to my game that I made in order to hit the long ball has been working on my shoulder flexibility as well as timing my hip turn. If you are a smaller person and want to improve distance, you should first make sure you are able to hit the ball squarely, but after, elongate the path of your lead arm without compromising your spine alignment and swing plane. It definitely isn't something that happens in one range session as it oftentimes takes multiple seasons in order to find 15-25 yards from the tee. But genetics definitely are not the only thing that factor into hitting big drives, I would say it is much more contingent on technique and timing than anything else.  
    • Actually it is not. It's taking something that people will perceive is bad associated with you, your brands and your business as Trump and making sure it doesn't affect you negatively. People saying it's not his fault and would be bad business are failing to see the big picture. He generates so much money off of his name and reputation and brand that if something is associated with him negatively, wrong or right, it could have already cost him far more than a million dollars of revenue or EBITDA.  And this was another executive  not sure I want the word on street to be that I didn't make good for another CEO. It's the same reason why when Chik Fil A made a statement about gay marriage they also were outside handing out free bottles of water to protesters. And their sales went even higher!  They controlled the message and paid for it and what happened?  They came out winners. There are multiple examples of this in business. That's why I disagree with @iacasand with @newtogolf  And apparently over 70 percent of the voters on this poll agree.  Ultimately we can have our own opinions on it and that's mine.
