I saw on The Onion AV Club blog that movie review site Rotten Tomatoes has published a list of the 100 worst films of the last ten years. These days I'm busy enough that I don't get out to the movies much, so I'd managed to avoid almost every movie on the list. The four that I did see, I saw on video or DVD. But here's the thing: I didn't think they were that bad.
- The Adventures of Pluto Nash - Sure, it's not Eddie Murphy's best movie, but I didn't think it was the crashing disaster that it's made out to be. I like science fiction and I like comedy - it's both.
- Corky Romano - "Question? No. Question? No. Question? No. I should buy a boat!" It isn't a comic masterpiece, but it was definitely good for some laughs.
- Dirty Love - I have seen this movie a half-dozen times and I love it without reservation. It's definitely a girl movie, though, so if the Rotten Tomatoes reviewers are mostly guys, that's probably why they didn't like it.
- The Whole Ten Yards - Okay, not exactly a timeless classic, but certainly entertaining enough. I'll agree that Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry weren't overly exerting themselves for this particular paycheck, but it had its moments.
How many of the movies on the list have you seen? Were they as bad as all that?
