Default What was the worst movie you've.....

.... ever actually slapped money down and saw in the theater?

THE ALL TIME WORST for me was [drum roll]:

HIGHLANDER 2: The Quickening
My good friend said, much to the agreement of everyone there, "I want my money back!"

Although special consideration goes to 3000 MILES TO GRACELAND.

What was yours?

On Deadly Ground

Made all the worse because it was, at the time, the most I'd ever paid to get into a movie.

Mars Attacks - proof that a truckload of Oscar winners can't save a crappy film.

Any movie starring Pauly Shore - I was smoking a lot of glaucoma medicine back then, and it obviously impaired my judgement.

The Band's Visit - Normally I love foreign films. This one was about an Egyptian band that went to Israel and it was sooooo painfulllllly sloooooow that I just couldn't get into it, despite a few quirky cute moments.

The Ring 2 - The deer scene. Nuff said.

The most recent one that comes to mind is Funny Games. There might be one further back that's worse but I think I may have blocked it out.

hmmm...I have a group of three films that are so wretched, I regret not being able to erase them from my brain.

The Blair Witch Project
Star Trek: Nemesis
and the worst move of all times: Batman & Robin.

Armageddon.

Roger Ebert described it best: "The first 140 minute trailer."

Revenge of the Sith. The first film where I've honestly wanted my money back at the end of the film.

It's a newer one, but the absolute worst movie I have ever seen is THE HAPPENING. To this day, I still think M. Night tried to pretend he purposely made a 'B Movie' after the reviews came out because all the promotional material, interviews with actors and director, and previews made it out to be a serious thriller. I've honestly never seen anything worse.

Alien vs. Predator 2 Or AVP2.

Augh...that was, without a doubt, the most pointless dreck I have EVER seen in my life. Horrible acting, horrible story, horrible dialogue, no story development...just another die by numbers.

In my mind I cannot imagine a worse film. There isn't one good thing to say about it.

Runner's up: Blair Witch Project and Face/Off.

For me:

Anchorman: the Ron Burgundy Story - painful watching, and not in a good way.
Robocop 2 - loved the first film, thought the sequel was awful.
Blair Witch Project - a lesson in never believing the hype.
Open Water - terrible production, worse acting and equally bad script; what was there to actually like?
 
The new 52 - probably not for me...

Millenium (1989) - With Kris Kristopherson & Cheryl Ladd. Between my wife and I, this is commonly considered the bottom of the barrel so far as movies are concerned - the yardstick with which all over excrutiatingly bad movie going experiences are to be judged.

Farewell to the King - With Nick Nolte. A close second. At one point my wife and I turned to each other and asked each other the same question: "How can ANYONE direct a boring gun fight scene?"
