There are plenty of bad movies out there, and mostly audiences feel that their time has been wasted by sitting through them. Then there are movies that are so bad and over-the-top audiences end up laughing and enjoying themselves.
Whether it be a movie with a totally ridiculous concept, a nonsensical script or awful acting, some movies can’t help but be enjoyed as the piece of terrible cinema they are. Here are ten of them:
1. Show Girls (1995)
For a movie about dancing, Show Girls has a lot of really bad dancing. In one memorable scene, main character Nomi (Elizabeth Burkley) almost knocks out five or more people while flailing wildly at a dance club, and that’s before the fight breaks out. But not content to have some of the worst dancing in film, Show Girls also has some of the worst acting. Nomi shouts most of her dialogue and the film’s antagonist Cristal (Gina Gershon) balances this out by whispering most of hers. It’s a movie that is impossible to be played at a reasonable volume.
On top of that, there never was a film that made less sense with its characters reasoning than Show Girls. It’s like the cast have had complex discussions about motives and relationships off screen, but as soon as the camera is on they develop an instant case of amnesia and settle whatever the problem is through who can scream the loudest. In addition to that, the plot is insanely convoluted.
There are high fantasy epics with fewer subplots. Yet somehow, Show Girls is still a cult classic, with a nomination for worst movie of all time at the Golden Rassies under its belt. It’s a bad movie that audiences have loved to hate for over twenty years, and that will → continue…
