You know it going to be bad when:

** In the first gunfght, the hero fires 10 rounds out of his revolver without ever having to reload!

** In the first car chase, the tires still squeal when they are off the road in the dirt!

** The engine sounds of the compact car are those of a souped up V-8!

** The vampire wears a cape and this isn't a tip off to anyone around him!

** The actors show up at the woodsy cabin and the first thing the camera sees is the ax hanging on the wall!

** A hockey goalie's mask is in the picture and it isn't a picture about sports!

I'm a movei buff but I couldn't put together a list like Lisa's. I have a satellite and lotsa movie channels. I can judge a films quality in about 4 seconds, when I see big breasted women and can see them act.
That unfunny guy from SNL is in it, in fact most any SNL actor. Superstar?
Stars Clint Eastwood and James Garner.
Anything starring Stallone.
Anything with the Olsen Twins(would love to throttle em'
Films with special effects that look like a HS production.
TV movies about kids or women in danger.
TV. Tv charachter actors that think they can support a whole show themselves. Seinfeld cast.
Any Spanish/French horror films.
Black detective movies from the '70s
Love storys about couples you wouldn't wanna see naked.
Well folks, that's all for now.

Count the number of things wrong with this (genuine) movie plot:

Two terrorists sneak onto a plane to smuggle themselves into America, which turns out to be carrying a cargo of mutant scorpions that were invented by a beautiful scientist who falls in love with the lonely widower pilot.

This was on latenight cable last night (no, I didn't watch it).

You have to be kidding. Right? That sounds like some of the nutty stuff I used to watch to stay awake many years ago when I was young and earned my pocket money babysitting.

bwahaha! this is a great thread!!!

i love those "It seems like a remake of a big hit film from the year before.", "It's an American version of a French film.", and "The plot involves a fatal disease that has no symptoms"...

though, "Girl, Interrupted" is "Based on a true story" (book to be exact :P ), and "The star is also "executive producer"", but i still think it's a pretty good movie

I feel kind of bad ripping on the mutant scorpion movie when tonight I rented a movie about an aged Elvis Presley (he traded places with an impersonator before the "incident") teaming up with an elderly JFK (now a black man) to fight an ancient Egyptian mummy come back to take over the world.

I haven't watched it yet, but it stars Bruce Campbell, which immediately moves it over into the "good movie tip-off" thread.

lol chris h i think that can also be said about any wwii movie where the germans have british accents

any movie that has 'Final' in its title.

any movie that has 'chainsaw' in its title.

any movie sequel that advertises 'better than the 1st one'.

Craig
