A Bad Video
26 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

Although Michael Jackson defined the 70's and 80's with his music and dancing, he most certainly cannot act. In the appropriately titled 'Bad', Michael makes the audience cringe at his immature acting and bad storyline. However, the only redeemable quality about the film is that Wesley Snipes makes an appearance.
