By far, the worst movie I've ever seen is 1996's "The Stupids" (starring Tom Arnold). That should really tell you right there.
The trailers for this made it seem like a spy flick, and that maybe this stupidity was like their cover.
My friends and I went and saw this in the theater (I think it ran for like 2 weeks). About 15 min in, they begged to leave (by then, any other
audience members had).
It was the ONLY time I've actually seen all of the audience walk out of a film. We stuck it out, thinking it HAD to get better. No dice. When we
left, we saw one usher paying another (obviously he lost the bet).
Oddly enough though, years later...if you go into it EXPECTING to see the worst movie ever made, it can kind of be pretty funny....as you just can't
see it getting any worse, yet somehow, it does, with every scene. Even the celeb cameos can't save this thing.
To me, you can't lump indies, or TV movies in here. When it comes to the WORST movie, has to have been out in theaters expecting box office returns.
This says it all:
The film was a major box office failure, grossing just $2,415,593 in the U.S. Tom Arnold won the 1996 Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actor
for his performances in Big Bully, Carpool and The Stupids. The Stupids was also nominated for the award for Worst Picture, Worst Director and
