I have always said that Episode I is better than Attack of the Clones.
I've seen that said somewhat frequently and I don't see why people think that. In Attack Of The Clones, almost any scene with Ewan McGregor/Obi-Wan is pretty decent and basically the last hour is an action movie with a big battle, a ton of Jedis chopping things up and Yoda kicking some butt. I enjoy The Phantom Menace but I much prefer Attack.
EDIT: Yes, the love story is far from believable (though it is over the top and operatic which fits Star Wars) but so much of the rest of the movie works that it makes up for the 10 or 15 minutes of screen time that the love story takes up.
As for it being "one of the worst movies any human being has ever created", that's treading dangerously close to 'Lucas raped my childhood' hyperbole.
