"Shitty Movies That You Saw As A Kid In The Theaters And Most People Have Forgotten By Now But You Still Remember For Some Reason"

I've become more discriminating, some would say crotchety, as I've gotten (relatively) older, so a number of the movies I saw as a kid, nowadays wouldn't fly for a second. However, there were those times when I wasn't so picky and was easily impressed by a seemingly quirky premise or a pratfall. And the only reason I still remember these movies at all was that I was young and they were bad.

These are the ones that wasted either allowance money, my parents', or my friends' parents'.

Celtic Pride (1996)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115851/
Getting Even With Dad (1994)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109891/
Mr. Wrong (1996)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117102/
Senseless (1998)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120820/
Spice World (1997)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120185/

Beat that.

And, for the sake of this post, "kid" refers to any time before 13 or so.

I still dont think he's finished yet. Maybe someone like QT can find the right project 4 him. I thought he was really good in movies like Zero Effect & Malice but it seems like hardly anyone saw either 1 of those movies. He was really good in Spaceballs as well.

Naw son. That was my shit back in the day. Was blown away by it @ the time. Before the twist endings became routine. Plus I thought most of the movie was goin 2 be about the janitor/stalker @ the begining so that was a nice little twist as well.

I can't say I saw these in theaters exactly. . . some of these were made a few years before I was born but were still big during my childhood in the 80s, some were TV movies. Some I just didn't see till they were on VHS. Anyway, here's a bunch of awful stuff that I used to watch as a child:

The Boy Who Could Fly
Not Quite Human
Pete's Dragon
Return To Oz
Flight Of The Navigator
The Cat From Outerspace
Adventures In Babysitting
Gotcha
Condorman
Doctor Detroit
Innerspace
The Last Starfighter
Little Monsters
My Best Friend Is A Vampire
Harry And The Hendersons
The Wizard
Batteries Not Included
Vice Versa

>Flight Of The Navigator

Last year, one of my roommates got this from Netflix. I made fun of him for like a week.

>Adventures In Babysitting

Aside from the token white-kids-in-black-club-scene, I don't remember anything too appalling from this one. I mean, you can at least appreciate Elisabeth Shue, can't you?

>Little Monsters

Oh, man, you just took it back. I saw this in a summer camp I was in as a kid (to keep me off the mean streets of Sacramento, I think).

Howie Mandel + Fred Savage + makeup effects = good times.

I think I got you beat though, because I actually owned the novelization of Little Monsters (just as I did with Getting Even With Dad).

Is that the part where they're like "You can't leave until you sing the blues"? Or something like that. That was really bizarre.

>I don't
>remember anything too appalling from this one.

Don't let your nostalgia cloud your judgement. It's a bad movie.

Yes. Definitely yes. lol.

Yeah, that's pretty bad.

This post is wierd because I was thinking of this movie last night. I can't remember anything about this film only the part when the kid replaces the dad's toothbrush, and I thought of that because my toothbrush needed to be replaced. That was a very dumb anecdote, I know, but it seemed like the right place to share it.

My whole entire posting style is based on dumb anecdotes. You're at home.

Getting Even With Dad was actually on TV a couple weeks ago. I managed to watch about five minutes of it before I realized how dumb the idea of Ted Danson as a heavy is. And his ponytail was not helping out either.

they're all just movies i loved as a kid that you know would get shat on by grown ups. we're the grown ups now, and we shit on movies like sleepover, hardball, and just my luck. but they're in that same category.

i own the dvd of heavy weights and have watched it numerous times just out of the sheer glee i get from its viewing pleasure.

How can you put Heavyweights in the same category with trash like Just My Luck?!

Heavyweights is hilarious, one of Ben Stiller's shining moments

54. "Heavyweights was out at the same time Dumb & Dumber was."
In response to Reply # 24


          

I remeber it was this girl Bailey's 10th birthday. March sometime, and we were originally gonna see Dumb & Dumber. However, since we also were all 9 or 10, it was PG-13, and Bailey's parents didn't wanna get anybody else's parents mad, we settled on Heavyweights.

I remember enjoying it, then again on video. Seeing it a couple years later, it wasn't as good, but still very watchable.

Kinda weird that, at the time, I had no idea who Ben Stiller was, let alone that it was him at the end playing a dual role.

Also, I think I had a tiny ten-year old crush on the female camp counselor back then.

>The Sandlot

This is still great, and the fireworks scene is one of my favorite minutes of film.

>Baby's Day Out

John Hughes was fucking up by '94. Saw it on video and knew it sucked.

>Camp Nowhere

With that one guy who was in every teen movie in the 90's.

>The Mighty Ducks/D2: The Mighty Ducks

That opening sequence got me so hyped in the theater.

>Sidekicks

I haven't seen this in forever. Doubt it would hold up.

>Surf Ninjas

Tone Loc, a special video game, and attacking an island fortress via surfboards. Good shit.

>Three Ninjas, Three Ninjas: Kick Back, Three Ninjas:Nuckle Up

Kick Back, where they go to Japan? wack. Never even saw Knuckle Up, but the first is a classic. We named this stray dog my family took in "Rocky" in honor of the older brother.

30. "a related entry from blogger manrobotmonster:"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://manrobotmonster.livejournal.com/75213.html

Over the last couple months I've rented a lot of "classic comedy" from Netflix. Most of yinz that are around my age know what this means. All the stuff we grew up believing was the funniest shit in the universe: Caddyshack, Stripes, Blazing Saddles, Animal House, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Bachelor Party, et cetera, et cetera. You know, all of the stuff from the 70s and 80s before comedy branched into low-budget screwball Police Academy ripoffs and teen dramadies a la John Hughes.

I'm not entirely sure why my generation holds so many of these films in such high regard (especially Caddyshack). Did we really think they were so funny when we saw them, or did our older brothers all think they were really funny so we just agreed to appear cool? But I'm here to tell you that most of those movies just aren't that good. The Mel Brooks stuff is still alright, and The Jerk still gets a lot of laughs from me, but almost all of those other movies are not only stupid (hey, Dodgeball is stupid) but they're not very funny, completely disjointed, and generally lead to me just wishing they were over by about 2/3rds of the way through.

In general the formula for most of these "classic" movies is that a bunch of guys sat around a room doing a ton of drugs and came up with ideas for scenes they thought would be really wacky. But like most guys who sit around doing a bunch of drugs they did everything half-assed, feeling like they'd accomplished their goal after the first couple brainstorming sessions. So in general these movies move from one "wacky" scene to the next with no real feeling of continuity or plot or story arc. The scenes themselves sound funny when you describe them to someone but when you actually sit down and watch them... not so much.

Which in itself isn't so bad. I mean, a lot of movies that I've rewatched over the years just don't hold up... or if it does, it does so only in a nostalgia sense. I still enjoy Three Amigos, but I think if I hadn't seen it every Friday night it was playing at the Tri-Boro cinema back in 1986 I wouldn't really like watching it today. But what I find bizarre is how many people treat the idea that Caddyshack isn't actually that great as some kind of horrendous blasphemy.

"It's a classic" they say. Then they give you all sorts of reasons why you didn't like it. You need to watch it drunk, or stoned, or with a bunch of other people (perhaps all drunk and/or stoned). But I don't buy that shit any more than I buy that The Dead are really awesome but I just don't appreciate them because I haven't seen them live on acid. If you have to put all sorts of conditions on the viewing of a movie (aside from the obvious ones... like watch it from beginning to end without interruption) that's a hint-and-a-half that its not a classic.

If they don't say they, they'll often say that you have to understand a movie based on the time it came out, or how groundbreaking this movie was or how you "can't" make a movie like this anymore (I love the people who act like teen sex and drug use are verboten topics that no one makes movies about, what fucking planet have they been on for the past decade?). The problem is that this very argument bolsters my point that said "classic" isn't that great. A movie should stand on its own merits as a good movie. I shouldn't have to like a movie because its an important part of cinema history, or because a bunch of other people decided I *have to* like it.

Of course, I do admit that I bring these arguments on by stating my opinion as fact (i.e. "Caddyshack isn't all that great" rather than "I don't really like Caddyshack"... although I think the latter would still lead to the same discussion). I also admit that certain types of movies appeal to certain people. But since my comedy tastes include not only Whit Stillman and the Coen Brothers, but also Happy Gilmore, Super Troopers, and Anchorman I hardly think I can be accused of being a movie snob, overthinking, or just not "getting" dumb comedy. I just don't like to waste my time on unfunny comedy simply because others have declared it "a classic."

And I guess in the end the use of that term is really what bugs me. By definition a classic is something that stands the test of time. We all learned in High School english class that the reason William Shakespeare is the greatest writer ever is because you can take his plays and set them in any place and time and they still make sense, centuries after they were written. Of course, one can argue about whether that is true of Shakespeare, especially if one is said high school student assigned to read and understand MacBeth, but if that's the standard for what constitutes "a classic" I hardly think a movie that doesn't hold up two decades later unless your drunk, high, and in a room full of people who all loved it as kids qualifies.

It's not like there aren't tons of examples of great films that have truly stood the test of time. Cool Hand Luke is as great a movie today as it was when it came out before I was born. Old Yeller will still make anyone who watches it cry like a baby. Theres a reason It's a Wonderful Life is a classic, and its not just because someone, somewhere declared it so (unlike, say, Rebel Without a Cause). The final three-way standoff in the Spaghetti Western A Fistful of Dollars is so well done that it holds its own against modern huge-budget CGI-infused blockbuster action climaxes. Even the original Planet of the Apes holds up if you're not immediately turned off by the 60's-era costumes - I mean who can deny the raw charisma of The Hest and his enormous, manly teeth?

There are more recent movies, too, that I think will have the chance to prove themselves classics in the long run - Barcelona, The Usual Suspects, Glengarry Glenn Ross, High Fidelity, Reservior Dogs, The Lord of the Rings, and dozens of others that aren't at the top of my head. And if I'm lucky, by then few people will even remember Fast Times at Ridgemont High, although maybe the next generation will be adamant that everyone must love Freddy Got Fingered.

I saw it the theatre solely to see Digital Underground perform "Same Song." Wasn't worth it. At all.

I also saw "Drop Dead Fred." Didn't hate it at the time. But man, looking back on it, boy does it suck.

Big difference, though prolly not as bad as Nothing But Trouble.

She was also on the Nickelodean game show with the head that words popped up on and panels of experts had to guess what the kid had done/invented/etc. She was one of the mimes or whatever that acted different stuff out. I was kind of jealous. But whatever, SHE never got a call back for Little Rascals like I did, so ha.
