The Cell with J-Lo.

I went to the movie to see the heat J-Lo was packing inside her back pockets and left confused, pissed off and a little disgusted. I have no idea what that movie was even about.

A little bump for this gem I saw advertised during the Allstar game

Oh Kevin Costner - what a shame.

I just saw a preview for Death Race.

Ex-con Jensen Ames is forced by the warden of a notorious prison to compete in our post-industrial world's most popular sport: a car race in which inmates must brutalize and kill one another on the road to victory.

I don't know if that's a "worst" idea. The original 70s flick is a cult classic. This new version is seriously nerfed though. :-t

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I didn't realize it was a remake.
I suppose the idea may have been cool back in the 70's, but not now.

James and the Giant Peach. I know it was a children's book, but it made me think of this thread when I was flipping through the channels earlier and saw it.

The title say it all: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. It's a classic in bad film. Yes, it is that bad. I was brain damaged after seeing it. I'm sure that was the cause....

Well, it's a spoof, and I don't think spoofs should be nominated for the worst idea, since their only purpose is to lampoon the subject. Regrettably, that eliminates those awful, awful Aaron Seltzer movies (Epic Movie, Date Movie, Meet the Spartans, etc...).

After all of this, I still think that the chihuahua movie is the worst idea.

LOS ANGELES - "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" was barking up the right tree with movie-goers, who put the Disney comedy at No. 1 for the weekend with a $29 million debut, according to studio estimates Sunday.


:-/ America.
