A flip-side to the other post, what are some supposedly awful films that you liked?

My pick is:

UHF (Trashed by critics, one of the funniest movies I've seen. The movie IS uneven, but the gags that work are memorable.)

Also, I thought O Brother Where Art Thou (I think EW gave it an F) is an excellent film. I'm a fan of screwball comedies and this one is funny.

I think EW is one of the rare exceptions that didn't like O Brother to some extent.

I haven't heard many good things about Hardware , but I really enjoyed it. Also, I seem to be one of only a few who enjoys The Big Hit .

I'm the only die-hard horror fan on the planet who actually consider Valentine and the House on Haunted Hill remake to be better than a lot of the crap that is labeled horror these days. If I'm not the only one, I'm definitely in the minority.

I agree with "the big hit", LDP and his "ya baby" cracks me up as does Bokeem Woodbine.

I liked "battle field earth" also. Probably b/c my expectations were very, very low.
I have seen Larry David in action, and that man is an animal, and he has to be stopped.

I liked Judge Dredd which I don't think was an Academy winner.

UHF, I agree. I am really looking forward to the SE DVD of this movie.

Hey, Patrick. How's it going? It's Captain Caps from the Toonzone Boards. I know we don't chat that often. We'll have to sometime.

Sincerely,

I agree about all the movies listed in this thread! Expect Valentine, Death becomes her and Supernova, which I haven't seen, and Battlefield: earth which surprisingly did not pass for me...

Additions
Charlie's angels, Hollow man, Dungeons & Dragons (Not so sure any more if these were really bashed that much, I know there are many more who like them)

Another examples of great movies with many fans that are still bashed are also Ford Fairlane and Harley Davidson & The Marlboro man

I love Groundhog Day, but I've never heard anywhere that it was supposed to be an 'awful' movie.

The 13th Warrior.

I really enjoy this universally-panned film and watch it every couple of months. It's actually among my favorite escapist movies of the past few years.

Supernova - I'm easy to please when it comes to Sci-Fi. Sometimes, I enjoy adventures in space even if it's a B-movie or scientifically inaccurate.
