The stars and writers of Mystery Science Theater 3000 have carried our bad movie passion/fixation/incurable mental condition forward at RiffTrax.com. You spend enough time with bad movies, youre gonna wind up arguing over which ones are truly the worst. Rather than fight it out tooth-and-nail among ourselves, risking possible tooth injury or even nail damage, we put the question to our fans. A record-setting 500,000 votes later, weve got the list. RiffTrax's first annual Worst Movies of All Time list. This is it. No more fighting. Because nobody fights about lists on the internet, right? Right??

I am surprised that The Jackass movies weren’t on the list.
The performances by Lithgow/Lloyd/Schiavelli are pretty good.
Anything with Rosie O’Donnell
Only movie I ever slept through in the theatre.
As far as the worst of all time; I would have to list Ishtar, Battlefield Earth, Waterworld, American Beauty, Wall-E, The Contender, for starters...
That was the only redeeming part of that movie. How could they get so many top shelf actors into such a stinker is beyond me. You would think one of them would say: "Can we hang on a second...."
My wife found that one for me on DVD. I thought I was the only person to actually see it.
To me, the movie is so bad it is actually funny. Then again, I was born and raised in Michigan and have many Friends from the UP so some of the dialog is funny because it is true.
They said it was great!
They had good actors!
The critics loved it!
It was directed by a famous European artist!
It was restored to it’s original black and white!
It was on TCM!
I WATCHED IT!
I wanted two hours of my life back!
The movie, BREATHLESS with Jean Paul Belmondo and Jean Simmons.
When it comes to just plain bad, I nominate Starship Troopers 2.
I have been doing all my movie watching on YouTube and other free net sources for years now. There are more movies on YouTube than I will ever watch, and news ones appearing all the time.
Lately I've become a big fan of BBC period dramas, and because I have a MA fetish I check out eastern cinema from time to time. And old movies in general...sometimes I think all the hottest leading ladies are dead...sigh.
The only movie I ever walked out on (at my Brother-in-law’s request) was the American dubbed version of FELLINI-SATYRICON back in 1970. It was BAD!
Saw it years later in Italian with English subtitles, it was much better. I had also read Petronius’ SATYRICON so knew a little more as to why the movie was so disjointed.
***This Island Earth MST version (netflix) is extremely funny.***
But they left out two reels of the movie in the version I saw! Much better w/o the MST comments.
***Perhaps the worst movie of all time is The Sound of Music***
You ever see SONG OF NORWAY? Beautiful color! Beautiful scenery! Songs! dancing! Made me and many others want to vomit! It was awful!
It’s Pat, The Movie (didn’t see it but almost wretched back in the day when they were running ads for it on TV)
The Adventures of Pluto Nash
Twilight Saga movies
my number 1 for worst movie though is:
Out of Africa
Haven’t been to a movie theater in years and don’t plan to go anytime soon. The junk coimg out of Hollywood is so bad they should pay me to go watch it.
Lost in Translation gets my vote for worst film ever.
I would go with “The Day After Tomorrow”
Say it aint so.....
It is a cult classic. Saw it when I was in college. A few beers before we went and a few smuggled into the theater and it was great.
Me too. But I'm the kind of guy less bothered by a battlecruiser sized submarine in the canals of Venice than I am by the fact that Tom Sawyer would have been 60 in 1900.
One is insanely cool, the other is just wrong.
Ooh...which one is that? Julie Newmar? Lee Meriwether? She doesn’t look quite like them though.
She was great as Stupifyin' Jones in LIL ABNER! And the only CAT WOMAN worth watching! She even stupified Itchey McScratchy (Jerry Lewis). Here she is as Stupifyin' Jones!
Actually, I think that was the whole point of making the movie. They started with those, and made a weak attempt to build a movie around them. It was a bust.
I love TIE either way — saw the MST version when it first came out. So glad it and other MST are on Netflix.
The redeeming features of HtD was Lea Thompson, who was utterly gorgeous, even if she did have sex with a duck. And Jeffrey Jones played a better than average scene chewing monster villain.
Far better than playing a good guy in Mom and Dad Save The World, with Jon Lovitz as the villain.
And don’t forget the Wham-o air blaster as a freeze ray! :)
The Undertaker and His Pals
The body double ...
I seldom patronize theaters, but I may start watching a movie on TV. If it is really bad, I change channels. But I seldom remember the name of the bad movie- why bother?
It's the movies that never made it into theaters that really stink. The straight to video stuff.
It's no fun to slam movies nobody's ever heard of, though, because nobody knows what you're talking about, but if you rent one of those movies by mistake you'll see the difference quickly enough.
On the positive side, the movie was fodder for one of the better epis of South Park.
To immediately skip over it viewing the listings?
I also associate the lead(s) with the title, just to be sure.
I was wondering when you’d show up here.
Here is ya one to stream tonight or anytime it is free to watch just don’t blame me for watching it LMAO.
Killer Shrews (1959)
The sub was stupid. But League had the same element that Avengers and the TV show Heroes had: a group of individuals who have distinct talents but who are even better working as a unit. That, to me, is America-—individuals becoming great by maximizing what only they can do.
Way back when, during the era of Creature Features, host Bob Wilkins would often state that “tonight’s feature is not the greatest movie ever made.” At times it was difficult to watch the entire movie. One night however, was one that Wilkins introduced as quite possibly the worst movie ever. He stated that the entire budget was just $500. It featured evil trees that attacked at night. The ‘lighting’ was a string of lightbulbs on a cord. The movie’s name is “The Navly vs the Night Monsters.” I probably still have the VCR tape somewheres.
I’ll take your Attack of the Killer Tomatoes and up you the Toxic Avenger. It was soooo bad it was funny.
I actually like a lot of “Saraha”. At least the soundtrack rocks! Plot, love story, not so much.
I know. Did anyone read the script?
But I find her acting to be DeBoring.
And Star Trek X.
There are only two things that make anything with Katherine Heigl worth watching. Hint: they’re both inside her bra.
No doubt, the WORST MOVIE EVER is The Thing with Two Heads, a 1972 film, starring Rosey Grier, Ray Milland and Don Marshall directed by Lee Frost, and written by Wes Bishop.
Milland plays Dr. Maxwell Kirshner, a dying, wealthy racist who demands that his head be transplanted onto a healthy body. As his health rapidly deteriorates, there remains only one alternative: graft Kirshner’s head onto the body of a black death row inmate, Jack Moss, played by Grier.

The Thing with Two Heads (The movie) 1:31:32 .......
Anything having to do with Hobbits.
Problem Child 2
Besides being throwup-bad, they had a scene where 2 milk men are delivering somethign to a house, and while they are waiting at the door to deliver somethign and one reaches over and caresses the other who slaps him away and says “not now” - nothing to do with the plot at all, just tossing in a pointless gay scene in the continuing indoctrination...
The English Patient, anything made by Woody Allen.
