Rumor Has It

Critics are always quick to assign a starred review to movies, and while I have a lot of respect for Roger Ebert, there's plenty of instances where I've disagreed with his (or the Rotten Tomato) takedown of any particular movie. Movie love is a personal opinion, and whether a film is good or bad ultimately comes down to preference.

And as a personal preference, I have a love for movies that are so bad they’re good, so for a second look at a couple of titles that may have slipped critical acclaim, suspend your disbelief, and get to watching—you might just be pleasantly surprised!

For any viewers accessing from overseas, whether you're traveling or living, it's easy to get around geo-blocking with a VPN and then you're ready to watch! Load up the queue, press play and get to enjoying these great titles that may not be everyone's favorite film, but definitely hit the spot for me. Happy viewing! 

1.     Working Girl (1988)

Melanie Griffith is wonderfully naive in this 1980s power girl flick, not to mention Sigourney Weaver's boss lady power trip, and that's what makes this comedy flick so irresistible despite its suits and shoulder pads. Throw in a prime time Harrison Ford into the mix and you've got the perfect set-up for a retro fix that does more good than bad. Where this film really fails is in its evil mastermind portrayal of Weaver's character; the ice queen boss stereotype feels even more antiquated on a second watch than ever. However, with a classic comedy ending, this movie doesn't fall flat and deserves a second (or third) watch, especially just to watch the breakout scene and one more listen to "Let The River Run" by Carly Simon.

2.     Bewitched (2005)

Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell take on the beloved sitcom in a movie that sparkles with clever characters—Michael Caine as Samantha's Dad Nigel Bigelow, Steve Carell as the funny Uncle Arthur and Shirley Maclaine as the show stealing Endora—and leads with astute direction (Nora Ephron directs). But it feels a little less authentic than the original. However, if you're willing to suspend a little disbelief, it can still steal your heart. It's vintage, it's cutesy, and it shines with the kind of magic that can only come from the movies—nose twitch, broom, black cat and all. For lovers of the sitcom, it's a modern update that takes a lot of liberty but ends up delivering a happily ever after in the end.

Prelude to Seven

Prelude to Seven
Listen to the Stinker Madness Episode


Watch the Trailer!

Before Malibu Express, Andy Sidaris directed a film called Seven. It's quite hard to find and rarely seen and has been on our list for ages. It stars William Smith and is about seven operators taking on seven villains in Hawaii. Buckle up for the ride!

This episode we have no streaming do's and don'ts but we instead discuss the Top Ten Stinker Staples. Be sure to read the whole list.

10. Sobriety superpowers9. Better take our shirts off8. Not understanding how phones work7. The bad guy is bad....because.6. The lifeless dummy5. Unlimited ammo4. Freezeframe, credits3. Truckin'2. Leaving by unopened window1. The Exploding HelicopterGood Neighbor, Bad Neighbor Jordan Tate - Under Siege (Erika Eleniak) Barb Wire - Barb Wire (Pam Anderson)Jill Munroe - Charlie's Angels (Farrah Fawcett)About Seven - Movie InformationSam's Boring Bullshit

Beyond Stinker Madness legend Andy Sidaris, who provided the story outline, produced and directed this film, the other producer is one Melvin Simon. Simon would be most remembered for bringing us the great joy that is Porky’s. Other production highlights for Simon include my personal favorites, Zorro the Gay Blade starring George Hamilton and The Stunt Man starring Steve Railsback, who you will remember from Lifeforce and who you should remember for Turkey Shoot, or the American title; Escape 2000. The Stunt Man also features Barbara Hershey and Peter O’Toole. It is one of my most recommended films.

Top 10 Bad Movie Staples We All Love

Top 10 Bad Movie Staples We All Love

Bad movies have plenty of cliches to discuss. Most involve poor film-making elements such as bad cuts, unclear action sequences, terrible acting or time and space having no meaning. Others involve stereotypes about genders or races. Those are no fun and need to stop so just ignore all those. We're here only to talk about the cliches in bad movies that we love and are always invited to the bad movie party. These are the bad movie staples that make us jump up in excitement or get rolling on the floor in laughter.

Our list was compiled after painstakingly analyzing thousands of bad movies over a span of 36 years. Please let us know your favorites by leaving a comment below. To hear us talk about our most beloved bad, cult and obscure movies, make sure to subscribe to Stinker Madness using your favorite podcasting platform! Enjoy!

10. Sobriety superpowers

Goldblum gets blitzed because the world is going to end, but seconds later writes a computer virus for an alien computer system in Independence Day.

Sometimes you gotta get good n' liquored up in a film. Its usually when all the chips are down and one of the main characters has given up or while partying in Brazil moments before zombies attack or at bachelor party before a massive earthquake hits. But then, by using the power to instantly sober up, you're able to draw up plans to defeat the bad guys or run without falling into walls or execute perfect martial arts moves. Just mind the puke on your shirt. Speaking of shirts.....

9. Better take our shirts off

Stingray and Nick take extra effort to get the guns out before facing off in the climatic fight in Undefeatable.

Our list compiles the highest paid actors from 2014 (according to Forbes.com) and those that really got their acting start staring in budget, cult, and/or bad movies. 

Dwayne Johnson - $52 Million in 2014

Saying that Dwayne got his acting start in bad movies is a little bit of cheating. We know that he got his acting start in the WWE as The Rock. But he still started his film acting career by staring in such bad movies with the first being The Mummy Returns in 2001 as the Scorpion King. He is still a main-stay in our favorite bad movies and we can't wait to see more of him in the future.

Top Stinkers:

The Mummy Returns (2001)The Scorpion King (2002)Doom (2005)Tooth Fairy (2010)Fast 5G.I. Joe: RetaliationFast & Furious 6HerculesLeonardo DiCaprio - $39 Million in 2014

Nominated for 4 Academy Awards and winning 2 Golden Globes for his performances in The Wolf of Wall Street and The Aviator, many consider DiCaprio to be a "good movie" staple. However his career didn't start out that way. His first film role was in Critters 3 and then followed that up in Poison Ivy, while then going "all retard" in What's Eating Gilbert Grape (which is a fine film) he starred as Kid in The Quick and the Dead (directed by Stinker Hall of Famer, Sam Raimi).

Top 7 Biggest Reasons Why Bad Movies Are Such a Big Deal

Top 7 Biggest Reasons Why Bad Movies Are Such a Big Deal

There are so many avenues for a bad movie fan to explore today. From podcasts, to blogs, to theater screenings, to online rentals bad movies are becoming big business. But what are the reasons for such a following of something that isn't good. There's no clubs for bad music (unless you count Top 40), bad art (unless you count The Met), bad books (unless you count fans of Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey) but there is for bad movies. We love to celebrate them. But why are they so popular?

Here's why we believe bad movies are such a big deal:
