Miss Cast Away (2004)
The Film: Starring, er, Eric Roberts, this spoof sends up Jurassic Park , The Sixth Sense , Miss Congeniality and – you got it – Cast Away . The one thing going for it? It has a cameo from Michael Jackson.
So Bad It’s Good? More like so bad that you’ve never even heard of it – much like director Bryan Michael Stoller’s other subpar movies First Dog and Light Years Away.
Car 54, Where Are You? (1994)
The Film: Buddy cop ‘comedy’ in which two bean poles dressed in police uniforms are paired up in order to protect a mafia witness.
So Bad It’s Good? Not only does it co-star Rosie O’Donnell, but a Baldwin as well, in the form of second-eldest Baldwin Daniel. A couple of saving graces there, then.
Santa With Muscles (1996)
The Film: Fresh from his, um, success in Mr Nanny , Hulk Hogan plays an eeeeevil millionaire (are there any other kinds?) who gets amnesia and wakes up believing he’s Father Christmas. Oh, the hilarity.
So Bad It’s Good? Naturally. With The Hulk’s muscles busting out of just about every costume, you’d expect this to be a hammy affair. In that sense, it lives up to its promise.
Chairman Of The Board (1998)
The Film: A ginger surfer dude (Scott ‘Carrot Top’ Thompson) somehow becomes the head of a major corporation. We hear this happens every day.
So Bad It’s Good? It stars a guy called Carrot Top, who’s blessed with shaggy ruby red locks. Suffice to say, it’s terrible.
Santa Claus (1959)
The Film: Another festive offering, this one doesn’t have Hulk Hogan, but it does have, uh, José Elías Moreno. So that’s all good, then.
So Bad It’s Good? The plot has Santa teaming up with Merlin to stop a devil called Pitch from ruining Christmas. Good enough for us.
Leonard Part 6 (1987)
The Film: Thankfully not the sixth entry in a franchise, but the first and only Leonard film starring Bill Crosby as a retired genius who’s forced out of his granddad slippers to save the world.
So Bad It’s Good? We’ll just say “no” and leave it at that. Stick to the sitcoms, Bill.
The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!? (1964)
The Film: Also one of the worst movie titles ever (not least because of its multiple, redunant exclamation marks), this musical horror movie follows what happens when Jerry (Ray Dennis Steckler) is turned into a flesh-eating zombie by a gypsy.
So Bad It’s Good? Its divine campness makes it a must-watch nowadays – so long as you’ve got a few beers in the cooler to help you through.
The Film: Actual popstar Aaron Carter skips into movieland, where he plays, oh yes, a popstar. What a stretch.
So Bad It’s Good? Very nearly The Room for tweens, this dizzying kidflick suffers from a total lack of cohesion, even if Carter mostly manages to rise above the dross. One for the young ‘uns if they run out of Pixar movies.
Anne B. Real (2003)
The Film: A burgeoning rap star finds her voice with a little help from the Diary Of Anne Frank . Director Lisa France has barely worked since.
So Bad It’s Good? Definitely not. Looking like it was shot on a ‘90s camcorder, and starring some truly awful amateur actors, this is one film that nobody would miss if the negatives all got destroyed.
The Film: A bunch of teenagers stumble across a caveman who’s got blood on his mind – and his plastic club.
So Bad It’s Good? From the awesome title to the exploitative undertones, this is a malformed beauty. Beats anything by Michael Bay, anyway.
