    What is a movie that was generally panned that you liked?

    I have to go with "The Cable Guy". This movie was absolutely trashed by audiences and critics alike. I loved it from the first time I saw it.
    It was very funny, Carrey was brilliant and script was genius. I will never know why the movie is soooo despised. In fact, it is my favourite Carrey movie by a long way.

    What are your thoughts?

    Freddy Got Fingered. One of the funniest movies of all time.

    How does a movie with 80% approval on rotten tomatoes qualify for this thread? :?

    Every critic that panned Kung Pow should be out of a job.

    - Alien 3

    - Alien: Resurrection

    - Prometheus

    - AVP

    - AVP2

    Those were panned by either critics or the fan base but basically anything that involves the Alien franchise get's my nod of approval. Love it all..

    The same with the Predator franchise re: Predators

    I remember my older brother telling me all about freddy got fingered when it first came out, how it was the funniest movie ever and that literally every minute of the movie had a funny moment in it. Watched it, and after 90 unfunny minutes a looked at my brother speechless. We still haven't talked 14 years later.

    I was referring to the '98 Ferris Bueller version. I thought the most recent one was well received? Thought it was pretty good.

    People panned Con Air? I thought it was universally recognised as the greatest movie of all time.

    I had the same reaction with my best friend. Absolutely terrible movie, Tom Green now had his own public access tv program a few years later :)
