Worst Movie Ever Blogfest

I promise that Medical Mondays will be back on its feet next Monday. When Alex posted about this blogfest, I was assailed by memories so wretched I couldn't resist.

Here is it:

Yahoo Serious. Seriously?

It was bloody awful. I went to see it the summer before college and I almost walked out. Almost. I didn't because I went with a friend who thought it was hilarious.

(We aren't friends anymore.)

Any of you who know me a bit know that I like a little bit of, shall we say, logic within the imaginary worlds I'm entering.

Splitting beer atoms? Einstein creating rock n' roll? It's like they took one drunken, random idea and stretched it into 90 minutes of sheer, unfunny idiocy.

Rotten Tomatoes beat me to pummeling this one into the ground.

(I apologize to any Aussies out there--I hear it was a hit there, but I can comfortably say that I love all things Aussie except this movie).

Please stop by the other bloggers on this fun Blogfest!

Revel in the Bad Movie.
Love it.
Live it.
Hurl it.

So you really can't split a beer atom? I just thought I missed that day in biochem.

Holly Ruggiero said...

I missed this movie. But it sounds awesome. ;) (teehee)

Meredith said...

Hahaha, this looks AWFUL. Wow, I've never heard of it before, but I will definitely steer clear of it now!

lbdiamond said...

LOL! Nice choice.

Munk said...

Einstein and I split a few beer atoms back in the day. E=MC Hammer.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

I haven't heard of this one before, sorry you thought it awful.

Yvonne.

Jeffrey Beesler said...

Glad I avoided this stinker. Thanks for sharing!

Old Kitty said...

KatieO said...

saw it. hated it. agree COMPLETELY with everything you said!
;-)
what a fun idea for a blogfest!

Jess said...

Haha I never saw that but thanks for the heads up. I don't think I'll be watching that one any time soon!

Jaime Loren said...

As an Aussie, I am completely ashamed of this movie. I apologise profusely on behalf of my people for the 90 minutes of life you'll never get back. :)

Carrie said...

I remember this movie. It was pretty awful.

Krispy said...

Have heard of this movie but have no interest in seeing it. Sounds like it's a good thing I didn't!

Linda Gray said...

Love Rotten Tomatoes, they're brilliant. I hate walking out on movies. The only time I ever did was a long, LONG time ago: Faye Dunaway and Tommy Lee Jones (great actors, right?) in The Eyes of Laura Mars. Ick!!! Serial killer going around stabbing people through their eyeballs with an icepick to kill them. That was the whole plot, as I recall--it totally overwhelmed any character development. Ick, ick ick.

Paul Joseph said...

Never saw that one. I'm guessing that's a good thing!

Bethany Elizabeth said...

I think some bad movies really work best in large groups - if you're with a large group of friends, anything can be funny. :)

Jonene Ficklin said...

Ha ha, the only good things about bad movies are the great conversations they spawn! Here's to terrible movies that keep small talk going in the farthest reaches of the earth.

vic caswell (aspiring-x) said...

i've never seen this, but it sounds horrific!

Karen Lange said...

I've never heard of this one, but if I see it, I'll run! :)

Carol Kilgore said...

SO happy I missed this one!

Laila Knight said...

That was an awful movie, but I wouldn't blame Einstein for trying. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I agree - it wasn't good! And the actor has done nothing since that film.
Thanks for participating in the blogfest!

Clarissa Draper said...

I haven't seen it but it does look so awful.

Giles Hash said...

Good grief. That just SOUNDS awful! Maybe as bad as Cannibal the Musical. Which was actually kind of ok.

Christine Rains said...

Ha! Good choice. I've totally forgotten about that film. Probably better that way.

Isis Rushdan said...

When this came out, I knew it would suck without a doubt and avoided it at all costs :).

Tim Brannan said...

Oh I used to love this movie.

But it is a terrible, terrible movie.

Susan Oloier said...

What a fun blogfest! Splitting beer atoms, huh? I can see the almost-walk-out quality of the movie already--even though I have not seen it.

Stephen Tremp said...

I haven't seen this one. If I see it on the dollar rack, I'll keep walking.

L.G.Smith said...

It's so funny how many bad movies are out there. You just know three college guys wrote this during a weekend bender.

The Golden Eagle said...

I've never heard of this movie--but it sounds like a weird movie. I'll be avoiding it!

Tara said...

Haha. Totally forgot about this movie. Yeah, it was bad.

Wendy Tyler Ryan said...

Never had the pleasure of seeing this one.

Phoenix said...

Didn't see this one, but I've heard that viewing bad movies with other smart-ass friends who turn it into a sarcasm rally can be fun.

My worst movie ever? Crank. And then my friends forced me to see Crank 2. I was so bored/offended/confused/irrationally angry/bored I really just wanted to play Scrabble on my phone the entire time.

Crank 2 especially owes me 2 hours of my life back, and frankly, if I ever meet Jason Statham I'm gonna tell him that.

Heather said...

That movie really, really did suck I must admit. I didn't even make it all the way through it!

Jennifer Hillier said...

I remember this movie being a groaner! Great pic!

Lynn said...

I actually liked that movie, way back when! Hope we can still be friends?! :)

Amy said...

I haven't seen this movie, and I'm really glad I didn't. Great choice! :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I've never seen it, but one of my favorite bands, Icehouse, did the theme song - "Great Southern Land."

M Pax said...

I missed this one and I'm glad. Will make a point to avoid it now. :D

Alleged Author said...

I agree that this movie was pretty awful. Though he has some lovable qualities. The hair? :P

baygirl32 said...

glad to say, I haven't seen it

Patricia Stoltey said...

One more I haven't seen. This blogfest is making me happy because I can see I've somehow managed to avoid a lot of stinkers.

Lynda R Young said...

What's worse than Young Einstein is the follow up sequel movies ;)

LTM said...

BAHAHAHAHA!!! yahoo serious. Oh, man. I forgot all about him. :D

WritingNut said...

Hahah.. too funny.. I haven't heard of this one!

Doralynn Kennedy said...

Love this review... especially the beginning, middle, and end.

Jennie Bailey said...

Yahoo Serious! Young Einstein was such a "classic". I can't believe I forgot it. I would have added it to my list!

Carrie Butler said...

Hah! That looks terrible! I can see why you hated it. ;)

Leslie Rose said...

Glad I dodged that bullet. I had to sit through all the Pokemon movies with my kids. Got some great shut eye. Thanks for the hopping list.

Rhonda@laugh-quotes said...

Lucky for me, I missed this one :)

Suze said...

'I didn't because I went with a friend who thought it was hilarious.'

But are you still friends with them? :)

Empty Nest Insider said...

I completely forgot about this movie which was probably a good thing! Glad to have met you through the blogfest! Julie

Samantha VĂ©rant said...

Hahahaha! Can't say I saw this one. And I never will. Thanks for the warning!!!

Susan Fields said...

I've never heard of this one - thank goodness!

Matthew MacNish said...

I think I saw this one as a kid, luckily ... I can't remember.

B.E. Sanderson said...

OMG, I saw this. I repressed the memory for decades, though - probably like a lot of people. LOL Truly terrible movie.

Rachna Chhabria said...

I am enjoying reading this blogfest entries. Hope you are feeling better.

Melissa Bradley said...

I absolutely love your description of this movie. I never wanted to see this movie and splitting beer atoms just confirms that. LOL Great post!

Budd said...

I liked it as a kid, I think.

J.L. Campbell said...

Never even heard of this one, but I'm glad I missed seeing it - not that I watch a whole lotta movies.

Donea Lee said...

"Einstein" and "rock n' roll" would never be two things I put in a sentence together! I remember seeing this in the video store way back when, but I never picked it up. Good thing, I guess! :)

Laura Josephsen said...

Never saw it, and I don't think I ever want to. ;)

L'Aussie said...

You're right Lydia. Aussies totally got this movie. It was HUGE! I still have fond memories of its foolishness.

Denise

Jennifer Shirk said...

Ugh, even the movie poster looks awful! Thank goodness I missed that one. :)

msmariah said...

Lydia-- What a great choice. I remember that movie and yes, it was atrocious. Great blog by the way, I'm following you now.

Ciara said...

Great choice! This blog fest was a blast. Oh, wait, I didn't list mine. *bows head in shame* Still, I had fun. LOL

Emily Rose said...

Oh my, that does look terrible. The movie, I mean.

oceangirl said...

Hello Lydia, still a nightmare? :) It looks awful, it sounds awful, it must be awful:)
