Road Trip (57%) and Euro Trip (47%) are both great.

Basically any silly/dumb comedy is hated by critics for some reason. Even if its really funny.

Vandersexxx is worth 5% by itself.

Freddy Got Fingered: Critics 11%, Audience 55%

 

Never ending debate - what's the worst movie ever made. This or Cabin Boy. I always end up with a headache and craving 17 natty's to forget this thought ever entered my brain in the first place but at the same time feeling as though I need to punish myself.

I was watching a review of FGF by Red Letter Media. Their theory was that Tom Green never wanted to make a movie but they gave him money to do it anyway. So he basically tried to make the worst thing imaginable in his mind to see if they would end it at any point. It's actually pretty brilliant when you look at it that way.

Battlefield earth 

critics 3%

audience 11%

i loved this show. I really enjoyed the book too. Perhaps that’s why I liked it so much.  I really don’t get why it was hated so much.

The Accountant 

51-76

i always stop when it’s on.

That other guy posted Battlefield Earth, and you thought a 51-76 was worth sharing?

It's laughably bad on all levels- writing, directing, acting...but I'm with you on enjoying watching it, in spite of all that- ends up going full circle to campy enjoyable bad instead of just bad. Perfect movie for the thread.

Another Travolta film that got destroyed. 

Swordfish 26/60 on RT

I loved this movie for it's over the top action and cheesy hacker cliches. Also Halle Berry in her prime.

Hmm... I haven't seen this movie in forever but I grew up in the area where it takes place so I liked it when it came out. Though I admit, it might not age well at all and my opinion could very well change since elementary school/jr. high is when I saw it.

 The Best of Times 31/44

This is one I loved as a young kid. Rented it in college and it did *not* age well.

Caveman 24/54

Cocktail

RT = 5%.  Audience = 58%

Why do people hate this movie?  It's a perfect 80s movie IMO :shrug:

I thought it started off well but got boring and depressing amazingly fast. It was not awful, just mediocre.

Bloodsport

30% critics; 74% audience

That 74% is too low - just about everyone loves Bloodsport

Bohemian Rhapsody is 61% on RT vs. 88% from audiances and it is up for Oscars.   

I haven't seen it but "film twitter" absolutely hates that movie and is furious/perplexed with all the accolades. There are some scenes posted that show the editing and I do have to agree that whoever edited seems to be a total hack.

Good Burger 

 critics - 32%. Audiences 63%

The movie is simply funny and self-aware of the over the top camp of its main plot.

Porky’s

The Haunting was a good one and of course the great movie that was Gigli

6% and 12%. Completely ridiculous this movie is fun from the beginning to the end.

The awesomeness that is Grease 2 also almost somehow hits both 37-53

The hysterterical horror comedy Student Bodies almost does as well 25-51

The start of the fanastic MCU universe somehow makes this list as well ☹️ howard the duck 15-38

Last fantastic movie for now is psycho_iv_the_beginning -33

 

Just took a quick look at some of the movies I own to find some of these underrated gems (oh speaking of I bet yep  Jem  is one as well 21-40).

Just watched this again the other night. The majority of the cast hasn’t done much in years other than Kim Cattrall and the guy who played Coach Brackett.

Can't Buy Me Love  50%/74% .  Close enough.

Class  25%/50%

 

I can probably dredge up several more from the 80's that fit this bill base solely on nostalgia, like those 2.

Office Christmas Party is 40/40 but also something I watch every time it’s on and also something I seek out on demand.

Gung ho doesnt meet the criteria at 33/45 but I felt it was a fitting reply to this post since it is about a japanese auto maker opening a factory in the US.

I was going to mention Caveman too.  It is dumb slapstick comedy but I liked it
