If your vote for worst movie isn't on the list, tell us what it is and why!

As a mother of young children I HATE DISNEY SEQUELS!!!!!  I can't even describe the loathing I have for the merchandising arm of the Disney corporation.  My girls are in prime "Princess" age and I can't even make a homemade costume without my 3-yr-old saying "I am Sleeping Beauty" (because her dress is pink). She's never even seen the movie, but so many things have THE princesses on them she knows anyway.  The old movies are good, but the new cheap rip-offs just to make a buck drive me crazy.
Sorry, you touched a nerve there.  If it wasn't so close to Halloween and then Christmas I probably wouldn't feel so strongly.

As much as I agree with Mummy, I had to vote for the Disaster Movie, because any of those movies are offending to all 5 senses. Ugh, they should have stopped after the first Scary Movie.

Surely some of the MST3K films beat these out.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Well. Most MST3K movies from the CC show aren't as current as the ones on the poll. But if you are going to include MST3K movies I would have to go with Manos: The Hands of Fate as the absolute worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life. The MST3K episode does not mitigate this truly awful movie. It is so bad it became a cult between me and my high school friends and as a result throughout my Junior year we had our own catchphrase: May Torgo Bless You.

Somehow, that was the very first episode of MST3K I watched, and I must agree. I could have sworn it was three hours long even excluding the parts I fast-forwarded. Sheer torture.

Excluding MST3K, I've only seen D&D, and that was a horrific movie, and the first one that came to mind when I saw the title of the thread.

I won't even watch Disney sequels, but I know they've gotta rank up there.

I think there comes a point when movies are so bad you can't distinguish them anymore. And all those movies hit past that point.

To all of you MST3K fans out there I ask, Where is Roadhouse on this list?
If it's not on fire, it's usually a software problem.

I'm sorry, but Manos: The Hands of Fate has no competition. As for the movies on the offical Poll List, I'm sure it belongs in there somewhere.

Frankly, I found D&D even worse than Manos.

I've never seen D&D. I may need to rent it in order to compare.

I cried when i watched D&D, i cried like a prideless fool.
"I love you."
"you dont. You just think you do because i'm all you know."
"Really? So whats this burning sensation i'm having in my stomach?"
"Too much ale."
"Not love?"
"No. But i can see how you confused the two."
"I don't feel good."
"They do that to you."
"my legs, their numb."
"Hahaha!"
"haha!"

The only movies on the poll list that I have seen are the Disney sequels, some of which are pretty bad.  But the worst movie I've ever seen was "Batman and Robin".  Why?  Because I need suspension of disbelief to enjoy a movie, and mine was gone 10 minutes in.  And things only got worse from there.

The worst movie ever is not on the list. For the list, I'd say D&D hands down. The others at least do what they were meant to do. D&D falls flat no matter how you look at it.

In our family we have a "worst movie ever made" set aside for a movie called "Mulefeathers". This is the story of a mule, who is voiced by Don Knots. Premise sound like there is hope.....Make no mistake...there is no hope. Not even Don Knots (who I love) could make this movie work.

Features a very silly dragon. Hilarity MAY ensue.
