2. I liked Belly
I've seen better acting in elementary school plays but I get what they were trying to do.


Legend of Billy Jean and Last Dragon are my favorites.

Lately? Keeper of the Flame w/ Tracy + Hepburn
Yes, it was like 1942 but I have had reminders of it lately. Although it was Tracy and Hepburn, it was pretty bad. She was the beautiful, mysterious widow of a political figure whom many people admired greatly, but she knew he was secretly a fascist.
I forget who wrote it but as I recall he had to explain himself to the HUAC. (Un-American Activities Committee)

6. Frankie and Johnny (Elvis)
Frankie and Johnny (1966, directed by Freddy De Cordova, Johnny Carson's 'Tonight Show' director)


Elvis plays Johnny, a riverboat entertainer that has a big gambling problem. Donna Douglas, better known as Elly Mae Clampett, is Johnny's girl, Frankie. A fortune teller tells Johnny how he can change his luck. Enter a new lady luck played by Nancy Kovack and the cat fight begins.

------

Typical bad Elvis flick, but it holds some twisted power to fascinate me. Sometimes.

:shrug:

10. Death Wish V.
So bad, it went straight to video. It's only good line was "Guns have their Uses. Idiots with guns make me nervous." It was my sig on WWDN for a while.

19. "Only You"
With Robert Downey, Jr., and Marisa Tomei. Despite the fact that that it's sappy with an impossible plot, it's the only romantic movie I really like.

26. Where The Boys Are (original version), and
any beach party Frankie-Annette type thing. But I've seen them all enough times. Now I look for anything from Weird Video when I rent stuff. I like bad sex-morality movies from any era but especially the 50s and 60s.

29. "The Amazing Colossal Man" and "The Attack of the 50 ft Woman"
Although, "50ft Woman" is way more campier.

:-)
