Ever watch a movie that is supposed to be bad, but you can’t stop enjoying it because it’s so dang funny? Yeah, us too! These are some great examples of the most unintentionally hilarious of “so bad it’s good” movies we (and other movie lovers) have ever seen.
Now remember: these movies aren’t supposed to be funny… They’re just too bad to be taken seriously!
At first glance, The Happening looks like a terrible thriller that you definitely should skip. Re-watch it without taking it seriously, though, and you end up with a hilariously awful parody of a horror film. How’s that for a twist, M. Night Shyamalan!
“Once you realize it’s a comedy it’s really funny.” one fan commented.
No, not Trolls World Tour, the 1990 Italian-American indie horror fantasy film Trolls 2! One look at the cover and you can easily see how this one can be hilarious. Between the masks, acting, and green slime spitting you’re going to have a hard time enjoying this movie legitimately – but as a comedy it’s a definite must-see.
Written and directed by Tommy Wiseau (the man who also brought us Big Shark), The Room is sadly not meant to be funny. After seeing it this one you’ll be left laughing, yes, but also wondering how it ever got made in the first place.
I thought Patrick Swayze movies were supposed to be good! Actually, Road House really isn’t that bad, but it’s full of so many crazy moments that you can’t help but take it as a movie that’s more funny than serious. Apparently it’s based on a true story, though.
Howard the Duck
Forget the Avengers; you’re not a real Marvel Cinematic Universe fan unless you’ve seen Howard the Duck! But viewers beware… This one isn’t for kids. If you don’t want to see a topless duck, complete with slightly un-ducklike breasts, you’d better sit this one out.
Snakes on a Plane
I’ll be honest, when Snakes on a Plane came out I couldn’t tell if it was a parody or not. Apparently it’s not, although Samuel L. Jackson arguably brings that comedy vibe to it. Either way if you haven’t seen it definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
Neither a sequel to Free Willy nor Willy Wonka and the Charlie Factor, Willy’s Wonderland is a downright silly 2021 horror action film. It’s no surprise that this one stars Nicholas Cage; he seems to have a knack for taking on roles for hilarious, campy films.
(See also: Vampire’s Kiss, Birdy, and… Actually pretty much every movie he’s ever been in.)
Thought I’d forget about this Nicholas Cage gem? Unlike many of his other movies that seem like they’re meant to be a little silly, Ghost Rider is a full-fledged Marvel movie hero. Between the fact that the comic book Ghost Rider is also a hilarious concept and Nicholas Cage’s unique energy, if you don’t find this one funny all you’re left with is a pretty terrible film.
Still hoping they add Nicholas Cage to the MCU though!
Somehow The Meg was so popular it even got a sequel! I’m not really sure how they managed to cast action hero Jason Statham for the title role but they did – and it’s one of the best unintentionally hilarious “so bad it’s good” movies out there.
I love sci-fi, especially when people hack into insane systems like the government. Even better when the source of these hacking skills isn’t raw talent, but mystical powers.
Not only is this movie hilarious in itself, so are the polarizing reviews; Fateful Findings is sitting at 3.7/5 on Google right now and every single review is either a 1 or 5 star.
Birdemic: Shock and Terror
If you’ve ever watched Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds then have I got a movie for you. A lot of people found The Birds pretty scary and there were certainly some high expectations to live up to for anyone approaching an unofficial sequel to this classic. As you can imagine, Birdemic: Shock and Terror disappointed on every count as a serious film.
But it is so hilariously bad that you definitely need to watch it anyway.
Death Becomes Her
This is a movie that stars three of my all time favorite actors: Meryl Streep, Golide Hawn, and Bruce Willis.
Unlike most of the other movies on this list, Death Becomes Her is a rare one that actually does get some positive attention from fans and movie critics, but it’s definitely not something you should watch thinking it’s going to be a super serious fantasy film.
Of course, it’s also worth noting that Death Becomes Her was billed as a comedy so maybe this isn’t so unintentional after all.
