Some movies people think are bad are, in reality, very good.

Some movies are good. Some movies are bad. And then there are those movies that people think are bad, but in reality they are very good and the people that thought that are very bad and very wrong.

The following list of comedies all received audience scores of less than 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, despite being incredibly hilarious, extremely watchable, and not nearly as boring as The Pianist, or whatever. Of course, you can prove everyone wrong anytime just by visiting FandangoNOW and catching up on these all-time great bad movies.


15: Nutty Professor II: The Klumps (2000)


Audience Score: 33

Ebert and Roeper gave this movie "two thumbs up," the film's hip-hop soundtrack is an 11/10 banger, and Eddie Murphy shines as literally every character not named Janet Jackson. Seriously, what's not to love here?


14: Extract (2009)


Audience Score: 38

Starring Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Ben Affleck, and Mila Kunis at her Mila Kuniest, this workplace comedy is another standout from creator Mike Judge. Judge, of course, is responsible for such cultural classics as Office Space, Idiocracy, and, of course, Beavis and Butthead. Whatever you don’t like about this movie is probably your fault, not his.


13: King Ralph (1991)


Audience Score: 28

When tragedy wipes out the royal family, a Las Vegas lounge-singer/distant-relative, played by John Goodman, is handed the crown. We repeat: John Goodman plays a king. If you think hilarity doesn't ensue, then you're dumber than you look.


12: Look Who's Talking Now (1993)


Audience Score: 28

The third film in the epic Look Who's Talking trilogy, this one features the voices of Danny DeVito and Diane Keaton as two comedian dogs determined to cause trouble. Still think it's no good? Try remembering how great the first one was? Remember how good Kirstie Alley was on Cheers? Remember how good John Travolta was in that OJ show? All of that is wrapped-up in this talking-dog movie. Trust us.


11: The Ladies Man (2000)


Audience Score: 42

Is it the best SNL movie ever? Not a chance. Is it Tim Meadows best on-screen role? No way. Was it the only comedy smart enough to cast the woman who played Hillary on the Fresh Prince as the main love interest? Hell yeah!


10: Three Men and a Baby (1987)


Audience Score: 47

In 1987, you would have been hard-pressed to find three bigger and more handsome stars than Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg, and Ted Danson (unless you're counting Nancy Reagan). And if you believe this movie to be a true story, they were all, at one time, roommates who had an unexpected baby show up on their doorstep, forcing them to raise it together. Real or not, that's a good comedy premise.


9: Three Men and a Little Lady (1990)


Audience Score: 43

Like a fine wine, a movie premise only gets better with age.


8: I Love You, Beth Cooper


Audience Score: 32

We'll be honest, this movie where Paul Rust plays a valedictorian who uses his graduation speech to profess his love to the school's hottest cheerleader (Hayden Panettiere), is OK at best. But it's a teen comedy and should be judged as such. And you know what? Sometimes OK is good. This deserved maybe a 61? Or like a 57? Watch it and tell us you don't agree.


7: Big Top Pee-Wee (1988)


Audience Score: 30

How the f*** you gon give Pee-Wee a 30?


6: National Lampoon's European Vacation (1985)


Audience Score: 50

America's favorite family sets off a wacky, injury-filled adventure through the nations of Europe. And while it's certainly no Christmas Vacation, it's got way more jokes than you remember. Plus, you're an adult now and you no longer think Europe is old and boring. You should definitely rewatch this one ASAP.


5: Dumb and Dumber To (2014)


Audience Score: 35

If you liked the first Dumb and Dumber than you are legally required to like this one as well. We're sorry, them's the rules.


4: Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009)


Audience Score: 43

When a heist shuts down a New Jersey megaplex, Kevin James must step in to save the day. And if you know anything about Kevin James, you know that's quite the juxtaposition. After watching this movie again, we're convinced people judged it solely on it's title, which sounds weirdly similar to "All Fart, Plop Plop."


3: The Foot Fist Way (2008)


Audience Score: 46

Danny McBride plays a tae kwon do instructor who goes on a downward spiral after attacking his wife's lover and then set outs on a quest to meet his Chuck Norris-like hero. This film is so uniquely funny that anyone who sees it and doesn't like it deserves a swift kick in the dick.


2: The Brady Bunch Movie (1995)


Audience Score: 45

If we're being totally honest, this is the only film on the list whose score shocked us. We thought everyone was on the same page about this being not only a spot-on parody of TV sitcoms, but also the blueprint for how to reboot an old-franchise. Nah, turns out more than half of you hated it, which, not coincidentally, is the same number of you who are planning to vote for Trump.


1: MacGruber (2010)


Audience Score: 34

Before watching MacGruber, you should understand that this is more than a 90-minute SNL sketch. But honestly, who cares? Even if it were, it would still destroy every other movie on Earth in a “Best Movie on Earth” contest. MacGruber is the best of the best of the best of the worst.
