12 Movies So Bad That They Are Actually Funny


2. The Expendables

The promise of the greatest action movie star cast ever was a great concept, but “The Expendables” failed on several levels.

The lack of a cohesive plot is one of the movie’s greatest downfalls, but the apparent boredom of the actors is what really kills it.

Sylvester Stallone appears to give it his best shot, but the likes of Jason Statham and Jet Li look as if they know they’re there just to make up the numbers.

Even the addition of Mickey Rourke and Dolph Lundgren were not enough to save this testosterone-heavy disaster.

Inevitably, The Expendables is packed with guns and explosions, but the lack of a real explanation for what’s happening means you don’t really care if the characters live or die.

The incredibly complicated plot involves just about every action movie cliché imaginable including pirates, mercenaries, corrupt CIA officers and even a reference to the war in Bosnia.

Work Hard, Laugh Harder – Watch The Expendables Now!

The sequel was considered to be an improvement over its predecessor possibly due to the fact that Stallone was ousted from the director’s chair. The addition of Jean-Claude Van Damme as a slightly camp villain also helped to improve the second offering. Chuck Norris even cashes in on his recent internet popularity by showing up and telling one of his own jokes.

        Plan 9 From Outer Space? That one’s SOOO horrible it deserves its own special mention! Let’s just say that there’s a reason why it’s the Golden Turkey All-Time Award winner, and it’s not for its amazing quality. Then again, when Bela Lugosi died partway through filming and was replaced by a chiropractor who looked nothing like him…

      I know! It was supposed to be a cliche-riddled, poorly-conceived, atrocious-acting, action-mess! It was an homage to all the most awesome and hilarious 80s action movies!

      Expendables 3 NEEDS to have 1. Ruger Hauer (Blind Fury reprisal) 2. Sigourney Weaver 3. Steven Segal (who needs to die within 30 seconds of being on screen) 4. Kurt Russel 5. Carl Weathers 6. and Mel Gibson

      It wasn’t so bad as this article makes it out to be, but it has been done better. My nod would go to 1993 — with a flick of my wrist I could change your religion — as not only the best of these, but a great ****1/2 movie. 1973 was pretty good, too, at the time.

        The Director’s Cut vastly improves the film, but I wouldn’t go so far as to say it was “excellent”. It was better than a lot of people give it credit for. I thought it was good, but flawed.

I know Batman and Robin is terrible, but just a teensy bit of Googling and you’ll see Val’s nippled bat!

    Total Recall (2012): “Stepping into Arnold Schwarzenegger’s shoes was never going to be an easy task, so actor Colin Farrell had a tough time convincing audiences
    that he was up to the challenge.” That’s hilarious. Schwarzenegger has to be one of the worst actors ever. I deflated volleyball could step into his shoes.

The GE CF6 is used on the 747, 767, as well as Airbus models A300, A310, A330. Newer 747’s and 767’s use GEnx engines. The Germans make very good cars, but lets not give them credit for our jets

      However, Arnolds movies are mostly entertaining, especially compared to the list presented. I think some of it, was Arnold knew he wasn’t a serious actor per se and didn’t think he was “above” the roles he played.
      I re-watched Batman and Robin a few months ago, supposed serious acting chops Clooney was completely wrong for that role and he couldn’t carry it. Adding Robin was worthless to the storyline and this departed from the darker burtons versions that preceded it.
      Overall Kilmer was much better then Clooney, but neither were as good as Keaton’s batman or Bales, except the last of the Bales trilogy was kind of lame .

    Green Lantern, Die Hard and Battleship were not bad movies at all. Have to admit that Piranha DD was funny. Especially when Hasslehoff made fun of himself. Only thing wrong with Battleship was the awarding of medals at the end. The hero gets a Silver Star and hiis brother gets the Navy Cross. The hero should have gotten the CMH.

    }}} Fans of M. Night Shyamalan couldn’t believe that the man behind awesome movies like “The Sixth Sense” could be connected with such a turkey.

    LOL, I realize they’ve pretty much dumbed down reading and writing in today’s public schools, but “The Sixth Sense” is a movie, not a “movies”.

    MNS’s movies have been deteriorating since his debut. “Unbreakable” was, I grant, a pretty decent little picture, but it wasn’t TSS, and everything AFTER Unbreakable was pretty much “Unwatchable”.

    What is amazing is that, like the Wachovski ummmm “Siblings”, Hollywood keeps backing the three of them in making big budget pictures, when they’ve largely showed themselves to be two-shot wonders.

    Mind you, Cloud Atlas wasn’t bad, but it certainly tanked at the box office, costing 100m and only earning about 140m through to video sales.

    Both of them — MNS and the Wachovskis — need to go back to their roots in smaller pictures.

    • Trouble's Lament

      April 23, 2014 at 8:56 pm

      Hey, Cloud Atlas was one of the best films I have ever seen and the only movie that I actually paid to see more than once in the theater. Perhaps the problem with it was that hardly anyone reads anymore so they didn’t know what it was.

  36. obloodyhell

    April 19, 2014 at 7:06 am

    Considering some of these movies, you clearly missed “Tremors”, as well as the 1980s movies, “Deathstalker” and “Sorceress” (the 1982 one with the Harris twins, NOT the Julie Strain movie). In all three cases, the smart move was the creators did not attempt to take their movie seriously, and instead had a fun time with it.

  37. Krazy Joe

    April 19, 2014 at 9:04 am

    The author of this article has no Effin clue what what he or she is talking about. Casting Clooney in Batman & Robin was not the mistake. Clooney is a fine actor, and with a different script and director could have been a great batman. Also, the statement that Clooney’s was the first Batman suit with nipples is flat out wrong. Val Kilmer’s Batsuit also had nipples in the prior film. And aside from the lame nipples, everything else about Clooney’s Batsuit was excellent. Remove the dumb nipples, and he still has the single best Batman costume seen on film to date.

    And this inane comment about each Die Hard film being worse than the previous ?? Ha! I think not! 1995’s 3rd film, Die Hard with a Vengence is the 2nd best film in the franchise. And as bad as A Good Day to Die Hard was (and it WAS bad), it was still better than the far worse Live Free or Die Hard

    • Asshat

      May 17, 2014 at 3:13 pm

      Clooney made the mistake of agreeing to make a piece of crap for money. No actor agrees to film a movie without reading the script unless they are contractually bound which he was not.

      May 28, 2014 at 1:52 am

      I don’t know if Die Hard w a Vengeance is considered by its fans to be the best of the sequels but I admit one thing: the script was hilarious. I don’t know if this was intended to be that way but I laughed a lot whenever Bruce Willis and Samuel Jackson had an argument. It was better than I expected and I thought it was going to SUCK.

    ‘Instead of simply remaking the original film, the writers decided to do

    • Jonathan Osborne

      April 24, 2014 at 5:45 pm

      Except they didn’t. There are too many plot points from the first film and not many plot points from the book in the remake. The remake was still a better film on almost every front except the most important: They really kind of let us down on the whole “is this really happening or isn’t it?” element, which really is kind of the backbone of the story.

    Machete Kills was made with the intention of being “So Bad that its Funny” its an homage to 70’s grind-house movies which were exactly like Machete and Machete Kills.

    And The Expendables is awesome and does not need to be on this list.

    Perhaps if you stop watching action flicks under the premise that you’re going to find an Oscar winning script. The Expendables (aptly named) was a complete throwback to the 80’s and 90’s action flicks, hence the cast. It was a great flick. Number 2 was great as well.

    Maybe “Hercules” with Lou Ferrigno (sp?) is too old for this list, but there was a guy sitting in the front row who was making jokes about the movie while it was playing when I saw it.

    So it definitely qualified as one of THE movies that was so bad it was funny.

    The movie had 20-year olds wearing Halloween beards playing ancient Greek gods along with a globe that must have set the producers back $25.

      Disagree. Yes, 6th was his best film. But Unbreakable was very good as well (hence the forthcoming sequel), Signs was good and I liked the Village. Happening was stupid. And, of the two audiences or whatever, never read or knew anything of the comics/books, but Airbender was okay… certainly a lot of worse movies that are over hyped and over appreciated.

      • AL

        May 28, 2014 at 1:47 am

        The problem with the Village is how it makes the viewers feel. The plot sounds spooky and when Bryce Dallas Howard finds out about a huge scandal that could ruin everything and everyone, I saw the reaction on everyone’s faces. They were staring like “Huh? That’s it?” It was going along fine for the first half but then it tripped and fell on its face. There was so much potential and Shyamalan blew it. When watching it, I felt like he rushed through the second half and didn’t even give a crap if it made no sense. I mean, did he suddenly think: “To hell with this, just make up an ending and slap it on. I don’t care how long it takes.” That’s how the last half of the movie felt when I watched it. And yes, there were plenty of people leaving the theater with confused looks on their faces! I’ve only seen this and Signs. The latter was a MUCH better movie.

    April 23, 2014 at 8:54 pm

    There are a lot of bad films…as for ones that are so bad they are funny, I am not sure I’ve experienced them, aside from maybe the Batman films after Michael Keaton. Arnold as Mr. Freeze? Poison Ivy (not one of my favorite characters)? Danny as the Penguin? The uniforms? I’m not as critical of Clooney and O’ Donnell as I am of those actors I just mentioned. Especially bad was the early version of Bane…the more recent version of Bane was only a slight improvement. Michelle’s Cat Woman was sort of campy but she pulled it off in my opinion…

    April 29, 2014 at 12:14 am

    I disagree about Batman & Robin. Not with it’s placement o this list because it was utterly awful. But the author is incorrect about Clooney and Thurman. First of all, this was the absolute worst Uma Thurman has ever been. The only directorial choice that challenges the bat-nipples for “worst idea” was when Schumacher apparently advised Thurman to talk with a Mae West accent. Clooney, on the other hand, was a revelation in that he could stand amidst the carnage of that film and somehow … act. His scenes with the dying Alfred were literally the only moments in the whole film that worked.

      I was thinking the same thing.
      – “Ryan Reynolds should have appealed to adults” Why?
      – “Executives first approached renowned Indie (why is this capitalized?) filmmaker Kevin Smith” and THEN considered taking the film in a comedic direction? Does the author know what “indie filmmaker Kevin Smith” is “renowned” for making?
      – “The recent success of Marvel’s ‘Avengers’ could lead you to believe that superhero movies will always find an audience.” Oh, this is just ridiculous. First, a slew of superhero films were successful before The Avengers (which I did love). 2 Iron Man films, 3 Spider Man films, 4 Batman films, Thor, etc. But there also have been a dramatic number of “near misses” and outright flops: The Incredible Hulk, Green Hornet, Daredevil, Catwoman, Elektra, 2 Batman films… the list goes on.

    The reviewer apparently missed the part where the whole Machette series is supposed to be stupid and campy, that’s the point of it and that’s what was in mind while making it.

    And if Uma Thurman is the redeeming aspect of Batman and Robin please shoot me now. The best part of Batman and Robin, besides making fun of it of course, was Mr. Freeze with his wonderful classic Arnold delivery of lines.

    Same thing with the Expendables, it delivered exactly what it promised and was made exactly to be the way it is.

    The Val Kilmer Batman suit in “Batman Forever” also had nipples, but that movie was so bad no one could possibly have liked it. “Batman and Robin” wasn’t great but it was less bad than…oh, the three Christopher Nolan films, which were pretty but they were a mess. Can anyone name a reason, besides “bad childhood,” for Ledger’s Joker to have been how he was?

    “Batman and Robin” would have been super easy to fix: drop out the whole dying-Alfred storyline (I don’t know…send him to India to look for his brother, and bring Barbara in to “watch over” B&R, maybe), get rid of the telescope storyline, and get rid of the weird costume ball sequence. A two-hour “Batman TV Show” would have been left, and it would have been fun.

    “Sadly, the “Green Lantern” just seems to be a string of action sequences involving the creation of weird weapons like a giant fist.”

    Drop the last 4 words of that sentence and you describe most action movies these days. Little to no plot and single dimensional, cartoonish (sometimes straight off the comic book pages) characters rushing around from one impossible escape to another until they finally kill the bad guy.

    This list is not complete without the addition of “Shark Attack 3: Megalodon.”

    Lesser efforts that intend to be tongue-in-cheek (like “Sharknado”) are fine, but “SA3:M” was apparently intended quite seriously, although it’s so bad that one might at first mistake it for a parody.

    It’s OK on DVD or NetFlix, but for an even funnier version, watch for it on the SyFy channel, where the profanity will have been (badly) redubbed.

      Sharknado was intentionally bad. It was a tribute to the “drive-in” movies of the 1950’s America.

    Sadly, I’ve seen most of these. Catwoman…the only time I saw it was in theatres. Enough said.

    Green Lantern was terrible. My grandma and her boyfriend saw it a week after us and hated it as well.

    The Last Airbender is one of the worst movies I have EVER seen! The part I cracked up on was when the snow/ice guy assembles his troops on the edge of a cliff to prepare for war, and looks like he is going to say some inspirational speech. Instead, he shouts a strange ‘ooooooo’ battlecry. My mom and I looked at each other in astonishment and cracked up. Even worse, I had to see it twice. My friend and I were supposed to see Eclipse, but instead he wanted to see The Last Airbender. Awful.

    I always thought that the two Charlie’s Angels films were intentionally made to be so bad they’d be funny.

    Green Lantern was “lighthearted’? It had too much seething anger. Peter Sarsgaard’s character went through the same boring stretch of smoldering hatred that Dr. Doom did in the awful first Fantastic Four film.

    Funny that almost every single one are action-type movies or movies with a ‘super hero’ in them. One movie that is soooooooooooo bad and intentionally funny, but one my family just loves is: Mom And Dad Save The World with Teri Garr, Jeffrey Jones, Jon Lovitz ( a real hoot in this); Kathy Ireland and Dwier Brown (who play the stupidest brother and sister are very funny) and Wallace Shawn.

        Which movie is being remade, “Speed” or “Point Break”? If it’s “Speed” someone should sneak into the director’s house and tie him up so he misses work! Even the original was cheesy even though it was fun watching Dennis Hopper because he enjoyed playing the bad guy in that one.

    • Jeff

      May 23, 2014 at 3:01 pm

      ANYTHING with Keanu Reeves should make the list. Is there a more wooden actor out there? He makes Steven Seagal look multi-faceted. Sandra Bullock saved “Speed”, but beyond that Keanu movies are a disaster.

    To be honest, this list seems to be mostly filler lazily thrown together to get you to click on stuff so you see the ads. Did the compiler make it this far without seeing any episodes of MST3K?

    A real list of “Movies So Bad They Are Funny” 1) would not include most of the turkeys shown here (because they are simply bad, not funny), 2) would include a number of much older movies and 3) would genuinely encourage you to watch them because they are a real hoot, especially with friends and a suitable mood altering substance. Someone already mentioned Plan 9, but where is Troll 2? Manos: The Hands of Fate? The Creeping Terror? Deadly Prey? Or, for that matter, Sharknado?

    I thought Total Recall was very good, and trumped the original, which was pretty bad in its own right. It does not stand the test of time, mostly thanks to Arnold’s ham-fisted acting style.

    For the remake, I bought the BD, and don’t recall laughing one single time.

    “The only redeeming feature of Batman and Robin was Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy.”

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, was when I knew the list was only going to go downhill from here. If you HAD to pick a redeeming quality from this film, it would have to be Michael Gough as Alfred. Hell, even Arnold was better than Thurman, he just doesn’t have breasts, well, the ones that are SUPPOSED to fit into a bra.

        Yeah, some actors/actresses can take an otherwise weak or mediocre movie and raise up (Denzel Washington is good at that), others, like Berry, get dragged down by signing onto bad projects. Remember Charlie Sheen was once a decent actor before he started making crap movies and then went to tv and became a parody of himself.

    Wow, remove “The Expendables” and the latest “Diehard” movie and replace them with anything Madonna or Rosie O’Donnell are in. Wait, you said So bad that they are actually funny, never mind Madonna and Rosie aren’t either. Though I do not consider The Expendables or A Good Day to Die Hard bad movies, I found them to be entertaining which is where I find most of the movies on your list. Apparently critics have this idea that if a movie is entertaining and action packed then it is horrible. Get off of your high horses critics, we go to see movies so that we may lose ourselves in them for 90 minutes to 3 hours, forgetting what ever troubles we may be having in our lives. Let us enjoy our escapism and stop trying to demean our enjoyment of it,

      If you want to see the very worst movie you’ll EVER see — no, I’m not talking about Manos: The Hands of Fate (at least that guy was trying) — watch Midnight Movie Massacre, also known as Attack From Mars, from 1988. I can’t even describe how mind numbingly terrible that movie is … you truly must just see it for yourself. Hint: There’s a lot of mucus involved … and not from the aliens.

    There’s some movies that actually ARE so bad they’re funny that are often overlooked. These are the Starman movies. In the late 50s Japanese TV showed some episodes of a show starring Ken Utsui as Starman. These were inddividual episodes of about 90 minutes each. The 9 episodes were later cut and re-packaged into 4 movies of about 78 minutes each. Due to the severe cutting, major characters keep showing up you’ve never seen or heard of earlier in the movie. There are many scenes that defy any sort of logic or sense. “Evil Brain from Outer Space” is the “best” of these with a wonderful scene of Starman being attacked by poison darts on a children’s playground. At the end of the scene he happily flies away leaving the poison darts lying in the playground where there are many young children. His suit had a cotton “enlarger” sewn into it that made him appear more virile; the monster suits also have these. The fight scenes are hilarious. I swear you will laugh until tearss roll down your cheeks if you watch the Starman movies.
