It's a Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad Movie

By David J. Parker

Citizen Kane. Casablanca. Gone With the Wind. What do these movies have in common? They're all movies you won't find on this page. Every single movie on this page is, in some fashion, a complete stinker. And yet, these movies are not all the same. Some of them have a certain appeal to the type of people (and I count myself among them) who simply like bad movies. Sometimes I like a bad movie because it's fun to laugh at, sometimes I just like to watch something brainless, and sometimes I just like to see people make fools of themselves. If you're such a person, you've come to the right place. This film review site is dedicated to reviewing bad movies for bad movie lovers. The rating scale goes from one turkey to five turkeys. All of them equate to the lowest rating on "normal" rating scales, but the higher the turkey rating, the more I enjoyed and laughed at the movie. For more information, see my unabridged introduction.
