People Are Sharing Movies That Aren't "Super Well-Made," But Are Still, Somehow, The Absolute Best

A couple of weeks ago, we took a look at a viral Reddit thread asking, "What movie do you absolutely love, yet acknowledge is not a super well-made movie?" and the excellent choices in that roundup inspired even MORE awesome entries from our very own BuzzFeed Community!

Warner Bros

So, with that in mind, here are even more underappreciated movies people believe deserve more love:

"I may be showing my age here, but this needs to be on the list. Hilariously bad acting, but the dancing is awesome and this movie was in heavy rotation in the early days of HBO when I was a kid."

"The first movie. I mean, it was ridiculous on purpose, but there were so many un-PC things in it that it's become MORE ridiculous as time has gone on, and I love it. I will never hear that music, 'Da-dah-dah-dah-dah-DUM!' and not think of the Blue Oyster Bar. My brother and I (over 50, both of us) still quote it to each other."

"Mine are the first three Scary Movie movies. A lot of people don’t like the humor, but my friends and I can quote pretty much everything from those movies. They’re absolute classics in my mind!"

"It's so bad, it's good. Dry humor and schlocky horror effects, but damn, what a great, entertaining flick!"

7.She’s the Man (2006)

"I used to watch this everyday in high school, and I loved it!"

"It never stops being silly, but it blows stuff up real good! Plus, I never get tired of hearing Nic Cage say, 'Don't touch the bunny!'"

"Utterly wooden acting, completely impossible costume changes, and I LOVE IT."

"John Travolta's typical John Woo over-the-top villainy, a rare non-Wolverine Hugh Jackman action role, pre-MCU Don Cheadle, and 'that' Halle Berry scene — but somehow it all just works for me. I saw it in theaters a bunch of times, wore out my DVD copy, and still to this day I love it."

11.Tank Girl (1995)

"OMFG. Lori Petty, Ice T, and Malcolm MacDowell! So cheesy. So good. I love love love it! It's so out there and so funny with great '90s music. Everyone hated it, and I think Lori Petty’s career kind of took a bad turn there for a bit, but she was so good in it."

12.Suicide Squad (2016)

"The one with Will Smith. It’s so bad, but I watched it with my friends four times in a row during hurricane Irma here in Florida a few years back."

13.Pearl Harbor (2001)

"I once argued with my film professor about it. The cinematography is GORGEOUS, the music is emotionally stunning, it’s literally the only time Michael Bay’s love of explosions was appropriate, and the story was sweet (if not a bit predictable). Plus, it spotlights real-life war heroes like Doris Miller."

14.A Night at the Roxbury (1998)

"One of my favorite 'bad' movies. God help me, but I love that movie. It makes me laugh every time!"

15.Spice World (1997)

"Yeah, this will ALWAYS be at the top of my list (followed closely by The Cutting Edge). As a grown-ass 21-year-old, I was blessed to see this five times in the theater, and the last three times, I was the only attendee. IT WAS MY VERY OWN CONCERT AND I ACTED ACCORDINGLY. No regrets."

16.Deep Blue Sea (1999)

"The plot is absolutely ridiculous, but there is just something about these people being trapped in an enclosed space with pissed off, super smart sharks that is absolutely entertaining."

"It's SO ridiculous, yet highly enjoyable to watch. Bruce Campbell is just lovely in this film. My partner and I made it our 'holiday' movie, so between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we watch it."

"I just rewatched this and feel it belongs on the list. The story is batshit crazy, the acting swings between unhinged to unwatchable, and the special effects are poor even for the time period. That being said, I can watch it over and over. If for nothing else, then to see Meg Foster’s facial expressions."

19.Lake Placid (1999)

"Oliver Platt as an unhinged pseudo-scientist, Bridget Fonda as the uptight, jilted straight man, Bill Pullman as the small-town cop who hates people from the 'big city,' an alligator-infested lake in Maine, and freakin' Betty White?! It is literally the perfect movie."

20.Super Mario Bros (1993)

"I love this movie even though it is probably the worst video game movie of all time. It’s great because it's so stupid. And I’m sure we’ll be pining away for Bob Hoskin’s Mario when we’re stuck with Chris Pratt’s."

21.Fantastic Four (2015)

"I love it. It is not a guilty pleasure movie for me, because I am not guilty of anything — I genuinely enjoy it and believe I am the only person who has!"

22.Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008)

"It is a wild, ridiculous, absolutely garbage horror rock opera. Paris Hilton, Anthony Head, Alexa Vega, Bill Moseley — it's a mess. Most of the acting is cringe, the storyline doesn't make a lot of sense, and there are massive plot holes and things left unexplained, but I love it. I love it so much. I think I've made everyone in my life watch it at least once, though it's probably closer to 50–70 times for my wife."

"This one isn’t widely known, but it’s an early CGI movie in a weird art style with an odd but engaging plot line. It has some pretty big-name voices, too, like Kirsten Dunst and Angelica Huston. It's also one of Richard Harris’ last films before his death."

24.Gone in 60 Seconds (2000)

"With Angelina Jolie and Nic Cage. It's awful, but I love it and watch it all the time. The whole snake scene in the Hummer is epic. The bad guy with the 'wood' thing who gets upset when the chair breaks. Awesome. It's legitimately awful and fabulous at the same time."

25.Street Fighter (1994)

"I've always loved the live-action one with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Raul Julia. There are definitely places it could have been improved, but as a light comedy/martial-arts flick, it's so much better than people give it credit for."

26.King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

"The plot is way too packed, the opening scene is ridiculous, the dialogue is a bit forced, the CGI fight scenes are absurd, and I love every damn second of it. I'm a sucker for a King Arthur story, and I liked the unique approach this one had. While I understand why it bombed at the box office and the planned sequels were scrapped, I'm still intensely disappointed because I would have loved to see what else they did with the King Arthur legend!"

"Yes, it's 'bad'...but sometimes 'bad' movies are good!"
