The Bad Review Revue

Basic: “So astonishingly awful it becomes a sort of kinky pleasure; just when you think Travolta has fallen to the bottom of the barrel, he pulls out a shovel and dons his miner’s helmet to see what lies beneath.” — Robert Wilonsky, DALLAS OBSERVER

Dreamcatcher: “As five or six bad movies squished together, it almost seems like a bargain. ” — A.O. Scott, NEW YORK TIMES

Boat Trip: “There are bad movies, and there’s Boat Trip, a puerile comedy so appalling and unfunny it’s like contracting the Norwalk virus at sea.” — Marrit Ingman, AUSTIN CHRONICLE

Head of State: “The film opens with a statement that Hillary Clinton, Bob Dole and Al Sharpton are not in the movie. Also not in the movie: laughs. ” — Chris Hewitt, PORTLAND OREGONIAN

The Core: “Built from an alloy of absurdium and stupidium.” — Joe Morgenstern, WALL STREET JOURNAL
