Really Really Bad Movies

by vavamatazz | created - 03 Feb 2014 | updated - 2 months ago | Public

Movies to avoid! Awful, over-rated and boring are some words I would describe some of these movies.

This list consists of films I've seen that are a waste of time. Some I fell asleep during, others I just walked away and couldn't sit through it. A lot should not have been made, instead giving the money for a better cause.

Votes: 1,858

Bad acting, bad script, bad special effects. It's like one of those 80's porn movies with acting except this one didn't have sex in it.

6. Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo (2005)

R | 83 min | Comedy

Votes: 6,807

I was expecting the old type of action movies Wesley Snipes did back in the day, but it wasn't anything like that. The cinematography was great and they were trying to make gruesome and vile more arty but it's not something I want to waste my time on.

Votes: 87,747

The concept seemed like it was going to be a funny, amusing film, but they didn't execute it right. It just didn't work out. I wanted all that time I spent watching this back and maybe used it to read several good graphic novels instead.

23. Romeo + Juliet (1996)

Votes: 228,829 | Gross: $50.93M

Over-rated. It seemed like a long movie and at the end of it, the only feeling you really get is bad. Bad for wasting a couple of hours watching it.
