Well, I was pretty thirsty, but not so much now.

"Shhh! Come on you guys, keep it down. I've been following him like this all day. Shhh!"

People who can do stuff like this really annoy me. They make the rest of look like trained chimps.

Painted by Shusei Nagaoka, this is possibly the greatest album cover of 1977.

I SAID I'M GOING OUT FOR CHINESE FOOD AND DO YOU WANT ANY?!?

Creative people love getting advice. Here's some now!

It doesn't matter if you ride a scooter or a chopper--protect your melons, people.

Hmmm...my lunch is kind of Chewy today.

Some days it's just best to hunker down and let the storm blow over.

It's list time again. Here's super-smart Neha Grey's list of Hollywood's top ten worst movies in recent history.

I agree with some of her choices, but not all of them. I guess that's why opinions are like bellybuttons. Everybody has one. I'm in the midst of composing my own worst/best list. I'm sure lots of people are going to think I'm off my rocker with some of my choices, but hey, it's my bellybutton

Over Her Dead Body

The general plot of Over Her Dead Body is that Eva Longoria gets killed by an ice-sculpture on her wedding day, then comes back and haunts her husband’s new girlfriend. In the end, her betrothed marries the living woman and Eva goes back to heaven—griping, I know. Sean Axmaker, a reviewer from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer said, “... It’s as flat as day-old soda, a comedy completely lacking in bubbles or fizz.” Basically, don’t worry about her dead body; worry about dying of boredom from watching this film.


The Hottie and the Nottie

The trajectory that this shameful attempt at filmmaking follows is evident from the moment the hottie protagonist falls for the nottie—after she gets plastic surgery. As of April 2008, the film is ranked as the thirteenth worst movie of all time in IMDb’s Bottom 100 list—it scored 1.6 points out of a possible 10. I guess Paris should stick to her day job ... not that she actually has one.


Gigli

By combining the mighty star powers of JLo and Ben Affleck, producers were certain they had a sure-fire hit. Ultimately, they created the world’s worst miss. Gigli received a rating of below 0 stars from Time—the only movie in history to receive this score. Critics called Gigli “the ultimate turkey of all time,” and audiences, already sick of Bennifer’s overexposure, were happy to see the movie tank.


From Justin to Kelly

This movie features Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini, the winner and runner-up of the first season of American Idol. Texan singing waitress Kelly Taylor meets Pennsylvania college student Justin Bell; they fall in love and spend the rest of the movie being annoying. On IMDb.com, the film is currently rated as the twenty-fourth worst movie ever made—even lower on the list than Daddy Day Camp.


Glitter

Glitter follows the life of a struggling songstress in the eighties. (Hmm … sounds a bit like an autobiography, Ms. Butterfly.) Mariah did win an award for this film (at the 2001 Golden Raspberries)—an award for worst actress. I would rather watch the music video “Hero” by clicking Repeat for 104 minutes than sit through this movie.


Dude, Where’s the Party?


Photo source: Movie Preview

In its attempt to depict the experience of being a first-generation Indian-American, this film exaggerates every possible stereotype and manages to be completely unfunny. As if the ridiculous movie poster isn’t enough of an indication of this film’s intelligence level, it also has an unclever title and degrades the affable, hilarious Kal Penn of Harold and Kumar fame. Three strikes, it’s out!


Freddy Got Fingered

As the title indicates, Freddy Got Fingered is a disgustingly gross, exaggerated version of the Tom Green Show. This movie uses situations created for their shock value and jokes of the seven-year-old-booger-and-gas-passing genre. Green fails painfully in his attempt at telling this semi-autobiographical story of living in his dad’s garage and spreading rumors of his dad abusing his younger brother. Sounds like a laugh riot, right? Yeah, no one else thought so either. Needless to say, the movie bombed at the box office.


Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever

First of all—what in the world is an Eck or a Sever? This film is so bad that it doesn’t even matter. Ballistic is a 2002 action film featuring Lucy Liu and Antonio Banderas, who play secret agents pretending to be enemies. Rotten Tomatoes ranked Ecks vs. Sever number one on the Worst of the Worst movie list—I agree.


Norbit

You might think that Eddie Murphy in a fat suit equals hilarious, side-splitting laughter all around. You would be wrong. Not only is Norbit racist, it’s just not funny. A film critic from the UK had the following words of wisdom, “If you paid to see Norbit, look deep inside yourself. Look deep inside yourself and take the same amount of money you paid to see that movie and give it to a good cause because, believe me, you’re karmically unbalanced if you paid to see that film.”


Son of the Mask

It takes a lot of courage (or a lot of stupidity) to make a sequel to a Jim Carrey movie and not have Jim Carrey actually in the movie (à la Dumb and Dumberer). With an $84 million budget and a $17 million domestic box office gross, I’d venture to say that this movie was a flop. If you like comedy, movies, laughter, and an all-around good time, do not see Son of the Mask.

Sometimes movies are so horrendously awful, they end up being good. These movies are not that type—they are just plain bad. Don’t waste your brain cells on these movies—go to a museum instead.

When no cheeseburgers are available, pizza will do, but cheeseburgers better.

In the event of a heatwave make sure to cool your buns.

That's okay Netflix. At the rate your service is expanding some growing pains are to be expected.

I hate getting the appetizer and main course at the same time.
