The ultimate movie I thought looked stupid and loved is School of Rock. Along the same lines is The Rocker.
I thought Tangled would be dumb and I loved it. Loved Blades of Glory and Galaxy Quest but I thought they had promise before I saw them.
One that I hoped would be good and thought horrible is Voyage of the Dawn Treader, although I liked the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian very much
~If I had your voice, I'd talk-sing everything!~
I lurve School of Rock.
I didn't hold out much hope for "The A-Team" when I rented it (it had been one of hubby's favourite shows), but it was actually a lot of fun in its campiness.
Haunting the Princess of Pink since 20/07/11...
Well, I'm a huge fan of Star Trek, but when someone told me that they were doing a prequel I tought it would be the kiss of death for the series. When I saw it I almost cried of happiness, it was that good.
D&S 2006 and 2007 World Gold Medalists
The fifth Element! And, ironically enough, the funniest cartoon of all time: The Emperor's New Groove (I remember literally making fun of a couple of friends fro suggesting we see it in theaters. Fast forward a year later when I saw it and called both of them admitting I was an idiot for not giving it a chance)
This old lady loves School of Rock. I've watched and enjoyed other movies with my grandson that I never would have seen otherwise. Just can't remember any of them.
"The Replacements" Keanu Reeves, Gene Hackman and a team of misfit NFL strike replacement players. Rented it, loved it, bought it, and still watch it every few years.
Oh, and I've always loved "Legally Blond". Bend and snap!
I second The Fifth Element....and now it's one of my favorite movies of all time.
I also thought The Other Guys and Scott Pilgrim vs the World would be stupid, but I loved both of them.
Stuck On You was better than I thought it would be. Campy stupid fun but extremely positive overall regarding disabilities. I've noticed that the Farrelly brothers have done that with every movie I've seen of theirs.
I do love the fact that they explain the aging difference between Mat Damon and Greg Kinnear as a kidney or liver sharing issue. My favorite scene is when they finally get separated and try to walk for the first time.
"Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm -- but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves." – T.S. Eliot
Drop Dead Gorgeous. Though it was going to be a bad movie, but it's one of my favorites
