The Worst Movie You Ever Saw In The Theater

Need some filler for today, and frankly, I feel like writing even less than usual (yes, that is possible). Everyone seemed to be in a chatty mood yesterday over rob's pending sports free agency, so was hoping to channel that interactivity and make this a sort of open thread post.

The title tells you where I'm headed...what is the worst movie you ever saw in a theater. I believe I have mentioned this more than once in this space before, but for me it is a dead-heat photo finish between two films, "Warlock" and "Graveyard Shift", with Graveyard Shift winning by a rat's nose. Because I am incapable of doing a post without YouTube clips, here are the trailers for each film:

Graveyard Shift



Warlock



Join me in the comments, won't you, and regale us with tales of the worst movie film you ever saw in a theater. Or don't. I don't care. You're all jerks, anyway.

A Night at the Roxbury is the only movie I have ever walked out of. Vegas Vacation is a close second for worst movie I have ever seen in a theater.

G:TB said...

I actually walked out of "L.A. Story"...and yet it still wasn't as bad as "Graveyard Shift".

Jerry said...

Start the fantasy league.

G:TB said...

Later.

zman said...

Desperately Seeking Susan

KQ said...

Walked out of Cocktail. And you know how much I like cocktails. My hate for Tom Cruise started early.

Mark said...

Curly. Sue.

rob said...

shlara knew most of us as 19 year-old boys. and yet she claims 19 year-old boys have problems with self-control. i think i'm offended.

G:TB said...

Bryce Harper is Pi Lam material.

Shlara said...

Rob, you may be offended by my comment but you can't be surprised by it, right?

TR said...

Existenz

G:TB said...

is that a movie, or a male enhancement product?

rob said...

i'm neither, shlara.

anyone got a line for tribe/terps?

Danimal said...

no line on my site.

Clarence said...

Dave and I saw The People Under the Stairs, hoping the title was misleading. It wasn't.

mayhugh said...

Houseguest, with Steve Martin and Whoopie Goldberg.

Marcus Lattimore looking like he got his mojo back.

Mark said...

I just noticed that ESPN is using the script Tribe logo on the bottom line for Willliam & Mary. That should make all you smart kids happy.

Dave said...

actually had a conversation tonight at the pub about highlander II. the movie that made me a critic.

on another note, my mountain bike has amazing brakes. so good, that when you ride drunk, it is very dangerous.

rob said...

berbatov to fulham! wow.

Mark said...

I'm posting a pretty lengthy CFB preview-ish type thing tomorrow morning. Will be drunk editing it while watching CFB this evening. Get pumped!

Danimal said...

despite my raging hangover from a night in morgantown westbygod, it is difficult, or impossible rather, to stay away from the serve yourself bar & tap at the delta sky lounge in detroit rockcity. yes please. will plan for a 5 hour layover next time. word.

Danimal said...

oh shit. here are your annoying michigan fans now. ooh, look at me, i went to michigan!

just made a nice but not great bloody mary. would it be a dick move to ask the lady picking up stray glasses to fetch me some horseradish?

Danimal said...

when did suzanne maleaux get hot? she's hot.

Danimal said...

malveaux, sorry...former dc newswoman now on cnn.

Mark said...

Dick move or not, get some horseradish.

Danimal said...

speaking of michigan, floyd mayweather put 3M on the game...taking michigan and the points. (14)

Danimal said...

wasn't on the twitter machine last night but can i assume there was some chatter amongst a few of ya's on the eastwood/chair exchange?

G:TB said...

OLD MAN YELLS AT CHAIR. NEWS AT 11.

Danimal said...

i hate good byes.

Danimal said...

Detroit to jax flight attractive meter = a 6 but a solid 8 on personality.

zman said...

rob said...

Danimal said...

Sat next to guy on plane who was an asst coach for izzo For sev years at msu. His son is a w.r. At toledo...last name is Joplin.

Danimal said...

Bowling green that is.

Mark said...

So that guy's going to the Swamp tomorrow. Lucky fella.

Also, Tottenham is quickly becoming the most likable EPL franchise. Nash is a huge supporter and now Dempsey. If I was Rob I might ditch Arsenal and switch to the Spurs.

rob said...

i'm spurs-curious, but i'll be sticking with fulham.

and how is sparty not up two scores?

Mark said...

Boise magic. Duh.

rob said...

the teej has informed me that the texans have cut jonathan grimes. thus endeth their quest for my fandom.

rob said...

the hell is 'driving while visually impaired'? was he going all corey hart?

G:TB said...
