Describes poorly made motion pictures which still please because of subject matter, unique perspective, enthusiasm, or audacity

Margulies and Rebello, authors of a feature in Movieline magazine titled "Bad Movies We Love," here expand on their column with write-ups on 203 films. Possibly showing the effects of viewing too many bad titles, the writers have movie stars "sneer," "leer," "grimace," "smirk," or "shrug" entire sentences, and they occasionally twist or misstate a fact if it makes for a better story. Most of the chosen films fall into the "women's picture" genre. As expected, names like Elizabeth Taylor, Lana Turner, Joan Crawford, Mickey Rourke, Pia Zadora, and Rob Lowe are plentiful. The reviewers' air of gleeful bitchiness is sometimes very amusing, but it is best appreciated in small doses, since the subject matter calls for a certain amount of repetition in tone and terms (e.g., ham ). Only comprehensive film collections need consider.
