I liked 'Cocktail' but Rotten Tomatoes only gives it a measly 5%

https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1004420_cocktail

Who didn't love Elizabeth Shue? Plus, the soundtrack to the movie was awesome back in the day. Not to mention, every bartender who saw the movie took to bouncing bottles off the rubber floor mats behind the bar..

The Resident Evil movies, they are so horrible but so awesome at the same time.

A Murder of Crows - Cuba Gooding Jr and Tom Beringer. Watched it when it came out, and while I don't remember it being amazing, I figured it was better than 0% on RT.

The Saint
- 30% but I'm putting it in here just for how horribly 'good' the combo of Val Kilmer and Elizabeth Shue are. And it was a great soundtrack.

Chain Reaction - Nowhere close to as good as Speed, but I recall it being a decent run-of-the mill mid-90s action movie. 16%

Fire Birds - 10% A Tommy Lee Jones/Nick Cage non-apologetic rip-off of Top Gun with helicopters. Worth it for the training simulator scene alone.



Highlander : Endgame - 11% on RT, but 100% in my heart. Second best in the series. Not a high bar mind you.

Poison Ivy II - 14% and I'm not even explaining this one.

Reindeer Games - 25%. From RT - "Reindeer Games is basically a test of your ability to accept a slushpile of implausible twisteroos and Tarantino-style conceits." Accurate, but fun.

Screamers
- Another cheat here, 31%. Such a bad horror in space makes for such a good watch.

Thought I'd have more, but there were a surprising amount between 30-50%

Interesting exercise. Most of my list is goofball comedies, which always come with low ratings. All of these are quite high on the campiness, likely lending to the poor ratings, but in small doses, camp can be a lot of fun.

Wait, The Da Vinci Code only gets 25% on Rotten Tomatoes? I mean, it's not a great film, but it deserved better than that. I guess that would get a vote from me for great bad movie.

The Mighty Ducks only gets 23%. That's a good bad movie.

The Jackal with Bruce Willis and Richard Gere was a solid movie. Surprised to see it only get 23%.

Mr. Deeds only gets 22%. Sorry, but I still laugh at parts of that movie every time. That gets a vote from me as a good bad movie.

Romeo is Bleeding is a great modern film noir with Gary Oldman and Lena Olin. Only gets 22%. That is a very good "bad" movie.

You know what, this list is going to be long if I keep doing it like this, so let's just say that anything I list at each percentage is at least worth seeing:

22%:
Patch Adams
Boondock Saints
Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo

21%:
Rocketman (starring Harland Williams***for kids only)

19%:
Highschool High (Lovitz alone is worth the watch)
Let's Be Cops
Birdemic: Shock and Terror*

*Bonus trailer for one of the greatest bad movies ever made


18%:
Saving Silverman


17%:
Dirty Work

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Judge Dredd

16%:
Grandma's Boy

15%:
Encino Man
The Wicker Man (Nic Cage Version)

14%:
Canadian Bacon

11%:
A Night At The Roxbury
Holmes & Watson
Armed and Dangerous
Batman and Robin

That's enough for now. I'll make another list from 10% or less later on.

How do you give less than 25% to a movie with Robin Williams, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and sick kids? Complete BS!

Really only 5%? I get that it's not a classic but there are far worse movies with considerably higher ratings. It's a period movie that's not going to resonate today but at the time it fit right in with a lot of cheesy 80's movies and lifestyle with over-styled people, binge drinking, great soundtrack, romance, thin plot, etc.

You guys have to remember that Rotten Tomatoes isn't a scoring aggregator in the traditional sense (that's Metacritic), it is showing the percentage of critics that gave a Positive Review (51% or higher) or a negative review (50% or less). 5% for Cocktail means for example that 19/20 critics gave it 2 out of 4 stars or less. Not that it's absolute garbage, just that it's mediocre by consensus.

+1 for Saving Silverman.

Beverly Hills Ninja at 14% Unreal! Prime Farley

Black Sheep at 28% is absurd.

I just watched this recently too. 19% on rotten tomatoes. I'm a sucker for cheesy action movies, what can I say.




Watched it because I remembered this interview

Also Grandma’s Boy. I’m not usually a fan of Happy Madison movies but this one cracks me up.
Grandma's Boy is one of my all time favourite comedies, to this day I make references to getting robot legs in hopes that someone gets that reference, no one does.

I dont think I can be friends with anyone who doesn't love Boondock Saints.

Dirty Work is a good one. Critics hated it, but it's got consistently great laughs all the way through it. Norm Macdonald cracks me up every time.







Hot Rod is another guilty pleasure/cult favorite. 39% on RT, which isn't that bad I guess. But I remember it was completely dismissed by critics when it came out and didn't really find an audience until it came out on DVD.

Hot Rod is a ####ing gem. Complete with Ian McShane stealing scenes and a great supporting cast. I’m going to go watch it right now.
