Be forewarned that we're setting the bar pretty high for this one. Here, in alphabetical order, is our own Top 10 list:
“The Beverly Hillbillies” (1993)

The popcorn is on us.

i always kind of liked ishtar-people understandably had high expectations of it because of the people involved and it never,ever, recovered from the disappointment.
but as a shaggy-dog tale, i think it has an amiable charm. (sort of
like a dumb,big,wet dog with a wagging tail.)

i also sorta liked police academy when i saw it on tv. but then, i also liked porky's.

as far as worst movies, totally inept silly movies don't really bother me. there are so many of them.

what makes me crazy is when there's
a great novel, play, story that could be a great movie if the director had some balls but instead is turned into mush because there are no villains,really.
in that spirit:
"jefferson in paris"
"big trouble"
"thank you for smoking"
"cat on a hot tin roof"

also, for an absolute destruction
of a great elmore leonard novel- burt reynolds killed "stick". un- speakable.

i haven't yet seen "the davinci code", but it sounds like it might fit on the list, too.
