So awful it's almost worth watching.
5 June 1999 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Possibly one of the worst movies ever made in modern times, The Squanderers suffers from any ailment you care to name; illogical script, overacting _and_ underacting, sloppy editing, clumsy exposition, etc.

That it stars the less talented of the Swayze brothers (in itself a rather damning description) doesn't prepare you for the sheer awfulness of everything about this movie. The Squanderers is inadvertently hilarious whenever it goes for anything but the most basic performances, and should be enshrined as a warning example to all would-be film makers.
