* sadly, very few of these films fall into the so bad they’re good category even an ineptly-made mess can end up a 3 or a 4 if its heart is somewhere near the right place. Any fool can make a bad movie. But it takes a special kind of anti-talent to come up with the offensive bilge listed above.
For the record, the worst film I have ever seen (yes, even worse than The Doors) is True Blue, a British movie about the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race, directed in 1996 by someone (or rather something) called Ferdinand Fairfax.
