Probably the worst movie ever made
16 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Caught this movie on TV the other day and I honestly don't think I've ever seen anything worse. Worse than Hudson Hawk, worse than Billy Jack, worse than than any other movie you can name. It really has to be seen to be believed. The lead actor should be thrown in jail for his performance in this movie and Danny Aiello's acting is sub-par even by his standards. The plot's so stupid it's hardly worth a laugh and the dialogue couldn't have been written by someone with more than a fifth grade education. The music is so cheesy you'll catch yourself wondering if the movie's supposed to be funny and you've completely missed the joke. I usually enjoy horrible movies, but Power of Attorney is so bad it tried even my patience, and that's saying something. I defy anyone who's had the displeasure of watching Power of Attorney all the way through to name worse movie.
