In the car business, they say “there’s an ass for every seat.” That same rationale can apply to movies, as well. Just because the critics think that a particular flick blows doesn’t mean that you won’t find it to be awesome. The movie-geeks at Thrillist took a look at Rotten Tomatoes and found six movies that didn’t score so high, but that you might dig the hell out of anyway.
The Man Who Knew Too Little (41%) – An action-comedy in which a Blockbuster employee picks up the wrong call, and accepts a “mission.” Hell, it’s Bill Murray, so it can’t be that bad.
The Glass House (21%) – Yeah, it’s predictable, but it’s also engaging. Two orphans end up with a pair who have eyes on the trust fund.
Rambo:First Blood Part II (30%) – Everything about it, from the story to the dialogue to the action is stupid…stupidly awesome! Just try not to get jacked up when Rambo asks, “Do we get to win this time?”
Heavyweights (29%) – The Judd Apatow/Ben Stiller movie you might not have heard of. Stiller does an awesome rendition of the cheesy infomercial fitness motivator.
Everly (29%) –Salma Hayek lays waste to everyone, without ever leaving her apartment building.
Lizzy Borden Took An Axe (43%) – The one Lifetime movie that doesn’t play like a Lifetime movie. Christina Ricci at her most uncomfortable.
Notice there are no Adam Sandler movies on here. Yes, those are all as bad as you remember.
