Pretty much as per the OP. What was the worst movie you genuinely enjoyed watching? Not as in “har har I liked making fun of Battlefield Earth” but a movie you know was shit, but you liked it anyway?
I posted this just because I remembered “Last Man Standing,” a movie with Bruce Willis in it. The movie is set in the Prohibition era and it’s about Bruce Willis shooting a bunch of people. The movie was objectively stupid and gross, but I liked it anyway because Brice Willis shot a lot of people, Christopher Walken was very Christopher Walken, and Bruce Dern has a badass speech. Hell, I’d watch it again.
I liked Last Man Standing also, but I’ve only seen it once. Sometimes a bad-to-mediocre movie will hit you just right. I saw Stealing Home back when it came out and thought it was great - and it is a great *idea *for a movie. It had Mark Harmon, Jodie Foster, and a great plot hook. I saw it again a few years ago, and it really isn’t very good.
On the other hand, I’ve seen Condorman several times. Most people don’t seem to like it. I think it’s a great piece of entertainment. Not Bergman or anything, but fine Saturday afternoon with the kids fare.
ETA: Rick, I re-watched *Howard *a year ago. I had fond memories of it, too. It has it’s moments (“Release the small waterfowl!”) but it loses momentum and falls flat in the last third or so.
I know that The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension is a low budget collection of fan wank…but I love it anyway, from the initial testing of the Oscillation Overthruster to the Buckaroo Strut during the end credits.
