The Best Worst Movies (pt.1)

The time has come, the people have spoken and it is time for the best worst movies ever! Yay! I have to do the movies in parts because you gave me so many! So if you don't see yours, give me time-- or leave a comment. Because sometimes, the best movies are the bad movies. Actually, most of them. Give's a whole new meaning to bad, doesn't it? I still wouldn't invite Leroy Brown to one of my parties-- just saying.


High School Musical Series (Submitted by Hayley)

It started off as a movie-of-the-month Disney Channel Movie and grew into a pop culture phenomenon. Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale became house hold names. All because a bunch of high school kids wanted to star in a high school musical. If you haven't seen the movie, you've probably heard the plot-- it's basically a Disney version of Grease. A super smart, beautiful girl (Gabriella) moves to a new school district to discover that the boy (Troy) she karaoked with over vacation is the most popular guy in school. They accidently try out for the school musical only to discover that they have a call back. But Sharpay and Ryan, the musical king and queen of the school won't let the parts go away without a fight. There's love, there's dancing, and there's singing!

I seriously love the High School Musical series. It sounds completely cheesy on paper but it turns out to be incredibly charming. Efron's and Hudgen's off screen chemistry transfers on screen. But the best part is the music. If you like musicals, you'll love this series. And the third one, in my opinion, is the best worst movie of the series. Check it out, it comes out on DVD and Blu-ray today! (I'm not a commercial, I promise.)

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (Submitted by Rachel)

With only a few days before their high-school graduation, Bill S. Preston, esquire and Ted 'Theodore' Logan are doomed to flunk out of school. The history teacher, Mr. Ryan, decides to give Bill and Ted a chance. If they can ace an oral exam on the topic of how a famous historical personality might react to modern times, they will be allowed to pass. If not, Ted's father will place Ted in military school, thereby disbanding the Wyld Stallyns, the heavy metal band that was formed by Bill and Ted. Bill and Ted get help from an unexpected source: Rufus, an Emissary from the Future. It seems that in Rufus' time, Bill and Ted's music is the basis of all existence, and if the Wild Stallyns are disbanded, Rufus's world will no longer exist. Bill and Ted are whisked off in a time machine to retrieve a few historical characters for their oral exam so they can pass, but Bill and Ted soon discover that finding the historical characters and getting them to the high school won't be easy. (Summary taken from IMDB)

It seems to be the makings of the perfect Best Bad Movie. There's time traveling, there is "dudes", there is Keanu Reeves... It's a typical 80s movie. I personally haven't seen this movie but it's considered a classic. And I think Keanu does the acting of his life, but seriously, that's not saying much. People say it kind of rips of Back to the Future. I think it inspired people using "bogus" in their every day lives. Bummer dude.
