There’s nothing better than seeing a really good movie on the big screen.
The action, the adventure, the crying into your popcorn while yelling out, “Meryl can do no wrong, SHE CAN DO NO WRONG.”
Having said that, it’s a special kind of hell when you fork out approximately $3398495 on a ticket for a movie that’s so bad, you want to poke your own eyes out with your choc top.
Today I stumbled upon a Twitter thread of people sharing the worst movies they’ve ever paid for. Inspired, I asked my Mamamia colleagues exactly what sh**ty movies they had watched in the past and boy, there were some doozies.
Here’s a round up of the crappiest, crappy, crap crap movies people have ever paid good money for:
“I went to the premiere of Glitter and still considered walking out and I’m the biggest Mariah Carey fan on the planet.” – Polly.
2. Central Intelligence
“I went to the toilet three times throughout and I didn’t even care.” – Amy
3. Jaws, The Revenge
Jaws – The Revenge… don’t mock me, but I still haven’t worked out how the shark found out that Mrs Brody boarded a plane and flew from Amity Island to her son in the Caribbean and FOLLOWED HER ????????????

4. Meet Dave
“I watched it with a friend and I have no clue why. It stars Eddie Murphy as the leader of a race of tiny aliens who climb inside a robot/ship/machine shaped like a life-size Eddie Murphy. It is as ridiculous as it sounds.” – Jessica
5. Marci X
MARCI X – we paid but we walked out about 30 minutes into this catastrophe. @LisaKudrow & @PaulRudnickNY‘s careers should have NEVER recovered from this. But alas, we can all be a forgiving bunch. pic.twitter.com/GTMKBCLxjc

6. Super Troopers 2
I hope it’s not too late to submit, but I recently saw Super Troopers 2. The theater was nearly full at the beginning, and by the end I was one of 3 people left

7. Murder on the Orient Express
“We walked out halfway through, it was so boring. Also, seeing Johnny Depp’s face made me angry.” – Michelle
8. Eyes Wide Shut
I still get pissed off when I think about Eyes Wide Shut. Great. Now my day is ruined.

Mother! It was the most disturbing piece of garbage I’ve ever seen. The trailer looked so interesting, but the movie…i haven’t the words for how awful it was.

10. The Village
“The ending was so underwhelming. It should have been about monsters but in the end there were NO MONSTERS!” – Saengtip
11. Stuck on You
“WHY did this movie need to exist though?” – Camilla.
12. Movie 43
I very seldom tweet, but this thread gives me the opportunity to vent my feelings about the very worst movie I’ve ever had the misfortune to endure. Movie 43. What a total, end to end, every moment pile of garbage.
Glad I got that off my chest.

13. Forever Young
My 1st date ever, with my 5th-grade bf… I wanted to see Aladdin but I let him choose. pic.twitter.com/mwSXAVf5nR

“I think it was called Captured or Kidnapped or something. It was really bad.” – Luca
Whatever that one was where Angelina Jolie shoots a gun in a circle.
