Yeah, it's a moronic thread too, but what the hell........Everyone here has got some skeleton in the video closet. You know, one of those completely inane, dumbass, and completely moronic movies that you can't bring yourself to admit in public that you really like.

Now as to what's moronic, that's up to you. Whether it's "Deuce Bigalow, Male Gigolo" or perhaps any of the "Star Trek" series.....maybe anything....your choice.

The other day I stumbled into what I think may be the absolutely pinnacle of moronic movies and damned if I didn't keep laughing. It's a complete embarassment to admit that I even saw this, let alone like it........BUT, currently #1 on my Hit Parade of Moronic Movies I Like" is...........Joe Dirt, a David Spade and SNL friends vehicle that is the abyss of bad taste and bad jokes....but somehow because of my penchant for bad taste and bad jokes, it cracked me up for the most part. Drags at the end, but........

Well, Spaw, you may have trouble getting bites on this one. That's a tough combination... a movie that you think is moronic, which you like, which kinda makes you a.. But, I'll give you a couple of not particularly good movies that I enjoy watching every once in a while... two horror movies come to mind... Carnival of Souls and Horror Hotel (which are on the same DVD for about seven bucks.) Of course, there are many cheesy science fiction movies... enough to provide Mystery Science Theater with a livelihood for the next century. I also liked The Man From Planet X, or we could go back to Superman and the Mole Men. Somehow, I don't think that's what you're looking for. They probably have enough saving grace to disqualify them as being moronic. Guess I'll have to think about this some more.

Ah yes, Plan 9 From Outer Space... a favorite of mine... honest. Another favorite of mine, less well known, was Night of the Lepus. That's right... Lepus is the generic name for rabbits. I taped it off the tv for my son many years ago. Nothing more terrifying than an invasion of 30 foot tall bunnies. And it didn't even take place at Easter.

I saw "Little Nicky" (I think that's what it's called) a couple of weeks ago, and it wasn't quite as stupid as I thought it would be. I actually liked it.

I liked Water World, too.

Things we talk about at work:
We came up with the cast first - Adam Sandler and the guy from Little Nicky whose name I have completely blocked. I threw in William Shatner. Somebody else said Carrot Top ought to be in it. Now we almost had a cast. (We still needed a couple of women. I suggested all sorts of names - Brittney Spears, Sally Struthers, Roseanne - but nobody liked my ideas.) We needed a plot. More or less. Rather than write a whole new story, I thought it might be a good idea to use a tried-and-true idea, much like The Flintstones, The Brady Bunch, etc. I thought a modernised Gilligan's Island might be very popular. Why has a movie never been made of this?! Shatner as Skipper, Whatshisname from Little Nicky as Gilligan, and maybe Carrot Top could play Ginger, and Adam Sandler as The Professor. Don't have a clue about the Howells (maybe Kevin Costner and Madonna?) or Mary-Ann.

If you're looking for actual bad movies instead of bad movie ideas, never mind.

Glad you asked, Spaw... My all-time favorite moronic movie has to be "Yellowbeard" - an absolutely hilarious pirate/treasure island type story starring most of the Monty Python crew AND Cheech & Chong AND James Mason AND Marty Feldman AND Bernadette Peters... AND it's been UNAVAILABLE on video for ages.

So if anyone out there can hook me up with a copy, I'll... I'll... well, I would do something!

Day Of The Triffids. Loved the book first, then fell in love with the movie because it stuck so closely to the book. How can one not love plant-creatures who communicate by clacking stick-like appendages (no, no, these were like hands)?

Haven't seen it for ages. Used to have the video but some ex-friend made off with it and all of my John Wyndham novels.

The meteor shower's green glow leaves everyone blind, nearly everyone, that is. Fortunately, a few people, like our hero (William something) can still see (his eyes were bound after surgery). Maybe they can save mankind ... .

Giac, Are you single? I have two copies of "Day Of The Triffids". My all time favorite! Yeah...the whole world is blinded by a meteor shower except our hero who was undergoing eye surgery. (His doctor commits suicide by jumping out a window.) A little girl, running away from boarding school misses the shower by hiding in the baggage compartment of a train, as does an alcoholic scientist tucked away in a lighthouse with his ever enduring wife. They find the secret to killing off the killer plants who sound like a cross between crickets and a cow stuck in the mud.Triffids are attracted to sound - hence a heart-stopping chase of an ice cream truck playing the most annoying music. And the tacky ending - All the blind people of earth stumbling up the steps to Sunday morning service celebrating man's ability to survive and God's mercy. Can't ask for better. Crashing trains and planes, rampant escaped convicts, an orgy consisting of ladies in high heels dancing on tables. Great stuff. I have seen it more than once and also have the book.
Thanks, Spaw. I needed that!

Another vote for the first Terk movie -- I never understood why it got such savage reviews -- good premise.

Haven't seen Triffids, but now I know where that scene in Mars Attack came from.

The Party with Peter Sellers. Very dated 60s tomfoolery with Sellers as an Indian Actor nobody who is accidentally invited to a Hollywood Director's party. An absolutely terrible musical interlude by Claudine Longet. Somehow it captures the zaniness of the era, and Sellers is a loveable numbskull who does everything wrong.

What's Up Tiger Lily? Woody Allen bought the rights to a Japanese spy movie and dubbed in his own dialogue. The plot involves a secret recipe for egg salad.

Flesh Gordon Pornographic version of the archaic sci-fi films. Earth is disabled by the effects of the "sex-ray" which causes uncontollable orgiastic behavior. Flesh, Dale Ardor, and the Professor must travel to Orgasmia aboard a schlong-shaped rocket ship, where Flesh dons the power-pasties to do battle with the dreaded penisaurus.

Are you all talking of Prince of Thieves or Men in Tights?

I liked Waterworld and admit it out loud. I also liked The Postman. I don't know which Day of the Triffids (The Howard Keel film?) you are all talking about but it barely resembles John Wyndham/s book by more than the title. I did like the movie but real is real.

How about Cherry 2000 with Melanie Griffith. Soldier with Kurt Russell. The Quartermass movies. Doctor Who.

We seem to have drifted into SciFi. I admit to liking The Little Princess ( "Mafeking is relieved! Oh Jenny, Mafeking is relieved!")and Wee Willie Winkie.

The excitement and pathos builds as the garrison is under attack and a wounded and dying Gunga Din valiantly blows one last alert on his little bugle. bbllatt.....phirp....poit....

Spy Kids with Allen Cumming as the master mind -- or so he seemed. An action flick for the under ten's. The plot was contrived, the resolution was a rushed "Just be nice to each other" ending that stopped making sense the moment you thought about it... but...

The relationship between older sister and younger brother was neat, and for the entire film, the whole thing was like a hybrid between an Escher print and a Salvador Dali painting that had been brought to life -- 88 minutes of pure dreamscape.

Sometimes that's all you need.

Make that 3 for the Star Trek movie....

'Princess Bride' is fantastic.

Did Madeleine Kahn die then?? When was that??

'Men in Tights' was a hoot, especially the line 'ah, but I can do an English accent!'

'Killer Tomatoes', love the titles.

'Yellowbeard' was great too.

'Night of the Lepus' was the best ever all time worst horror movie, such a shame I can't get a hold of it.

'Day of the Triffids' sticks to the book????? You mean the film with Howard Keel???? I trust you were reading a 'book of the film' because in the original John Wyndham novel, there is a) no lighthouse, b) no ice-cream truck, c)no girls boarding school (only previously blind pupils from a special school)and d) triffids didn't die when exposed to sea water. The best version that I know of is the 6 part adaptation by the BBC about 20 years ago (a very young John Duttine as Bill Masen), which I've got a scratchy copy of but would love them to issue on DVD.

I have fessed up to this many times before, but I'll do it again:

ISHTAR

Yes, Ishtar. Should be required viewing for anyone who has ever had to endure Songwriters Night at the local joint. I still maintain that if the lead roles had been played by, say, Chevy Chase and Martin Short, the critics wouldn't have been so unkind. Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty aren't exactly known for their comic genius, after all. But do see it once, and keep an open mind. It's so bad it's actually funny.

I wouldn't call Princess Bride moronic at all. I think it's a very nicely done fairy tale. Same with the Mummy. And Shrek. I just love Shrek.

And I have to say, The Scorpion King was fantastic. If you liked The Mummy, go see it. It's Conan and Indiana Jones and any good Western all rolled up in one. Sure, it's a little predictable, as most movies like that are. But it's very entertaining, and isn't that why we go to the movies in the first place? Also, it's PG-13, and quite clean enough for anyone over about 9-10.

I also have a collection of about 25 or so Disney animated movies. Lady and the Tramp is my favorite, followed by the Aristocats. The two dogs in that one, voiced by Pat Buttram and George Lindsay, are just plain hilarious.

And last but not least, I love Jackie Chan.
