The Cable Guy is a legitimately great movie. Most people just fail to recognize brilliance.
Now Little Nicky is a bad movie, but it's a movie that I really enjoyed & view as a guilty pleasure, but I also haven't seen it in forever so I don't know if I'd still feel the same way. I'm inclined to say yes though.Little Nicky, it's funny. Roger Dangerfield as Lucifer in a bath robe, the devil putting a pineapple up Hitler's arse at the same time everyday, Nicky's dark power to turn Pepsi into coke. Quentin Tarantino as a rambling blind preacher who keeps falling down stairs. It's just fucking stupid and a good comedy can be just that.
Ya I just learned recently it was considered trash. I always thought it was praised critically and loved by most.
I actually loved this movie as well and really felt for Hogancamp and Steve's portrayal of him, had no idea it was considered a bad movie, I thought it just didn't do that well at the box office.So when the trailer for Welcome to Marween came out I was hooked immediately. My girlfriend begrudgingly went to see it with me in theaters and I absolutely loved it. She didn't like it at all and actually fell asleep through part of it but I was on board the whole way through. It's weird to explain, but I got a soft spot for grown adults who haven't mentally "grew" up and kind of find happiness in their own childish view of the world. Think like Lennie from Of Mice and Men. I really like those characters, they are really endearing to me. So I really liked Steve Carrel's performance of Mark Hogancamp.
So after all this and enjoying the movie I was completely flabbergasted seeing how panned this movie was. I can't believe people hated and how many critics and theater goers considered it a bad movie. Anybody else had the same situation with them? Well here's the floor to speak your peace on a "bad" movie that you legimatally enjoyed.
