    Without question, "The Truth About Charlie" (Mark Wahlberg).

    Almost as bad, but lacking a "mainstream" movie star was "Final Destination."

    As bad as Armageddon is, I always find myself watching it when it comes on. One of those bad but I can't turn it off movies. I must disagree with railing on Gladiator, Forrest Gump, and Castaway, all of which I enjoyed immensely.

    hmmm.... bad list continued:

    American Idol: From Justin to Kelly - the movie? I don't even want to watch the tv show.

    Night At The Roxbury/Its Pat/any number of ill-concieved SNL skits turned into movies

    Simon Sez - Simon Sez stick to basketball Rodman.

    New Rose Hotel - when Christopher Walken, Willem Dafoe, and Director Abel Ferrara can't save a movie based on a story by William Gibson, you know it sucks.

    Kangaroo Jack - An hour and a half long mix of home alone, crocodile dundee, and Sliders. Yep, its as bad as it sounds.

    All of the Batman movies except the first two

    Speed 2: Cruise Control

    Body Of Evidence - Willem Dafoe naked (ugh) Madonna naked (ugh) I may never recover.

    The Country Bears - A movie based on (and starring) animatronic hick bears who play the banjo and blow across empty moonshine jugs.

    TokyoSlim, do you really watch this many bad movies? That requires active pursuit of them, and some of your group, man, there was no chance for a good time watching them. I just realized I can no longer write coherently. I feel like what I just wrote was translated poorly.

    For about uh... six years... I watched EVERY movie that came out in the theater, and went and rented out blockbuster, hollywood video, and was working on draining Best Buy of all its movies as well. I really just don't have the time anymore to watch as many movies as I would like. [​IMG]

    Wow - I can't believe so many of you hate Armageddon.

    I actually kind of liked that movie and my wife really likes it - in fact I just purchased the 2-disk Criterion collection DVD.

    I also have to disagree with putting The Cooler on this list - I thought that film was pretty well done.

    Koji - you've met my wife, so you can disagree with her view of Armageddon, but thanks for posting the Phantom Menace review - that was great and so, so completely true...

    I actually kinda liked "The Truth about Charlie" even though it was a travesty of the original.

    (Thracozaag @ 21 Dec. 2004, 3:10) This pretty much sums it up, too (with a nice story to boot): http://ruthlessreviews.com/movies/c/coyoteugly.html
    Coyote Ugly wasn't a great movie, but had lots of talent... if you know what i'm saying.
    Well, why not just rent a playboy video, then?

    I gotta admit, I sorta of liked it too (Thandie Newton was probably a large portion of that)

    Piper Perabo and Bridget Moynihan are a couple of my favorite actresses, and the others aren't too bad either, including that Czech girl, the concept was kinda neat too. I didn't think it was a captivating movie but it was interesting nonetheless. John Goodman was amusing, but he usually is.

    The recent remake of Rollerball.

    In fact virtually any remake (or reimagining) although a notable exception is John Carpenter's The Thing, one of my all time favourites.

    How did I forget Pearl Harbour, a good call.

    Holy God, how did I forget this one. Don't blame me, my friends insisted on watching this peice of crap, and I haven't forgiven them since.

    I have not seen Armageddon, but it's hard to believe that it could be worse than Independence Day.

    It's a toss-up (literally).
