welcome to the space jam
here's your chance
do your dance at the space jam
alright

For anyone who has seen Space Jam, or at least heard the magnificent on every level soundtrack, I thought that would be a nice way to rope you in. This thread is not about Space Jam, as much as I would like it to be, but Space Jam is certainly a movie that is so bad, so ridiculously dumb, that it's good, correct? It's a movie with an out of this world (literally) plot, horrendous acting (Michael Jordan deserved an Oscar imo) and yet it is a movie that people tend to love, because it is so bad. Space Jam was robbed at the Academy Awards, people. But that's enough about that film for now - what are some movies that, in your humble opinion, are so bad that they are good?

So bad that they're good? Kind of like how a bulldog is so ugly that it's cute?

Probably Rocky Horror, haha. Rocky Horror or Napoleon Dynamite (Oh, this movie's great) because of how the characters are so unlikely and the movie is just so strange. A lot of people say it's crappy, but hilarious.

I've never really watched a movie that was too bad, though.. Except for Ponyo.

IMO, Scary Movie serie. The producers really don't seem to care what they put in it, just that it's funny. That's why it's so bad it's funny. The jokes are stupid but funny at the same time.

First one I can think of is Sealed With A Kiss! The classic story of Romeo and Juliet, told with a stunning new twist. They're seals! (see the pun in the title? Genus!) Join Romeo and Juliet as the fall and love in a story full of negative connotations like racism and sexism! Perfect for a family night with the youngyuns, be prepared to ooh and ahh at the the shooting stars that appear randomly and cross each other, every time a character calls Romeo and Juliet star-crossed lovers! Filled with meaningful quotes sure to make you ponder your life like: "A rose by any other color would smell just as sweet" - Juliet or "It's Spanky Time!" by that annoying little fish everyone hates, pick up your copy today!

I almost want to say The Last Airbender, as some parts are so terribly terribly terrible it's funny, but then it's just terrible. terrible. I think it may still be too fresh to laugh at. It may just ALWAYS be too painful to watch.

I liked Space Jam as a kid. 'Cause hey, it's Bugs Bunny. So, why not? Now not so much.

Anyway, my guilty pleasures would be the Super Mario Bros. movie and the 1998 American Godzilla movie. Both fall into the "so bad they're good" category.

I was afraid for a moment that this was actually a thread about Space Jam.

The Twilight movies are so bad they're entertaining, but only if I'm watching them with friends and making snide comments and jokes the whole time. I'm also a sucker for monster and scifi B-movies that have titles like The Brain That Wouldn't Die. Light-hearted movies (like Hallmark made for TV movies) though are just bad if they're bad.

The American Godzilla movie is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. I've already seen most Godzilla movies and a lot of people will just...become so volatile at the mention of this one, but I never quite saw it. Wasn't a great movie, but I never thought it was as bad as it was made out to be.

And, come on, like half the cast are Simpsons voice actors.

The Other Guys is pretty damn funny, but I've heard people say it's crapola.

Also I love Space Jam, I'm a die-hard Looney Tunes fan.

I was about to mention the Nostalgia Critic, but I see you guys already know the movie is crud, though I never thought it would be a "so bad it's good" film like Planet 9 From Outer Space. Would this also apply to movies based off of our old childhood shows?

Dolemite - Best part of the movie are the fighting scenes where they don't touch each other at all haha. And the whole plot felt random and dragged.

The Room - Best acting, best story, best soundtrack (they probably blew the whole budget for this). I find it hilarious how Tommy Wiseau portrayed his character as the best guy in the world.

Freddy Got Fingered - He's a molster. A chiiiiiiiiiiiild molester! I actually pretty liked this movie. It was so random and stupid, that it was funny (and sad).

I forgot there were Power Rangers movies.

On that note... remember that live action Ninja Turtles movie where they went to Japan?

Space Jam is AMAZING, DO NOT DISRESPECT!

No movie comes to mind at the moment I'm afraid which fits the requirements.

The Room is the only legitimate answer for this. It is the Citizen Kane of bad movies. It is the master of so-bad-it's-good movies. It is the king, the one that all these minor bad movies bow down to. It reigns with its queen, Troll 2, over the landscape of terrible movies.

Napoleon Dynamite seems to be one of those movies people consider to be "so bad it's good" but I just think it's good all around...it was made to be like that, so that's why it's good and not "so bad it's good" if that makes sense. I mean, that's what it was going for, so it beat you to the punch, am I right?

OKAY UM Jumanji was just SCARY not so bad it's good omg. One time we were playing Clue during the time we were reading that in English and someone went to the ball room and was like "IN THE BALL ROOM YOU MUST WAIT TIL THE DICE READS FIVE OR EIGHT" and it was funny but that's all I remember about Jumanji. Other than that movie just creeping me out. :( So scary. I was too bothered by it to judge whether or not it was bad lmao.

I DIDN'T WATCH JUMANJI FOR A GOOD DECADE AFTER I FIRST SAW IT BECAUSE THAT MOVIE FREAKED ME OUT AND I'M PRETTY IT IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF ALL OF MY EMOTIONAL STRESS IN LIFE!!!!!

For me, I'm not a massive fan of 'camp classics' or 'so bad it's good' type of stuff. As much as this is going to make me sound prudish and boring, I like stuff that is actually good! However, and this is a big however, I'm firmly of the belief that something can be empirically bad but still be phenomenally entertaining. Case in point: For Love's Sake, a Japanese live-action musical retelling of Romeo & Juliet that just happens to forget the fact that West Side Story exists. I imagine on every level of production, WSS is 'better' than FLS. FLS has stunted acting and dialogue, forgettable musical numbers, random-ass choreography and a whole crazy crate of lol-worthy moments (and yes, it slightly killed me to type the phrase 'lol-worthy' online but it's REALLY the only word that does justice to just how random those moments are). I also know that the minute it comes out in cinemas or on DVD I'll be first in line to see it again. As for West Side Story? No desire at all.

I should bring this other "so bad it's good" movie: Birdemic. This movie competes with The Room for best worst movie with its wooden acting, movie maker CGI, and home video-style quality. It's also getting a sequel.

Fun fact: The only piece of memorabilia I have from my childhood is a Space Jam alarm clock.

I only came to post in this thread to dispute your claim that Space Jam is a bad movie, but I don't have any evidence against this. *shrug* You're still wrong.

Anyway if I remember right, this gem plays during the credits: qWHCNieTMg8

If you were not a child in the 90's, man you're missing out. Good, good times.

Oh, and I didn't answer your actual question. See Crater Lake Monster, MST3K style because they riff better than you and your friends.

Like others have said, Napoleon Dynamite fits the category well. I think another film would be The Other Guys. I hated that film at first because I thought it was horrible in general, but since my first time I have seen it I like it a bit more.

I loooooove Space Jam! I have it on VHS XD

Anyone remember Samurai Cop? The movie about a dude who walks around his city and sometimes gets shot at, and chills at home in a speedo? Me neither. I think what makes the movie so bad it's good is just about everything, from poorly edited chase scenes, to terrible acting, to speeches even George Bush would be ashamed of.

Click (Adam Sandler) was a good movie, in essence, but that's because it was one of those slapstick comedies that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, is probably really, really terrible when you think about it, but jesus christ you're watching it for the twelfth time tonight. Then again, that's how I feel about most movies nowadays.
