Truly bad movie meme

Schwarzenegger and NielsenRed Sonja

"It's the worst film I have ever made. Now, when my kids get out of line, they're sent to their room and forced to watch Red Sonja ten times. I never have too much trouble with them."

— Arnold Schwarzenegger, as quoted in Wikipedia's entry on Red Sonja

Bad movies. All of us have seen them. Some of us, like Arnold Schwarzegger, have made them.

There is real therapeutic value in naming the worst [name your item] ever. What goes for bad law professors goes also for the movies.

CaligulaI propose to start a bad movie meme. I'll name the worst film I've ever paid money to see. It wasn't Red Sonja, which did earn a hilariously dismissive review in the New York Times. No, I must confess that I once crossed the county line during college to see . . . Caligula. There. I confessed it.

Update, 11/24/07: In speaking with friends about truly bad movies, I remembered two additional entrants in this dubious derby:

Okay. To make this a meme, I have to tag someone. Nancy Rapoport, since you're the only law professor I know with her own IMDb entry, I tag you. Heck, Nancy, you even have your own IMDb glamor shot! I'd love to hear your thoughts on the movies — the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Update: I have been informed that Adam Winkler also has an IMDb page.
