    By far the worst is that ill-begotten piece of shit Slap Shot 2. Completely unwatchable. I haven't seen Caddyshack 2 and have no intentions of doing so, but just based on how baddly they ruined a classic with SS2 - I can't even fathom how CS2 could be worse.

    As far as cheesieness - Anything staring a chimp in the lead role immediatly jumps to the head of the class. I mean if you're going to use an animal you should damn well be using a Labrador retreiver :D.

    Although I know these titles would fall into your cheesiest of all time, I can't put them in there. These were my childhood. Rookie of the year, The Sandlot, Mighty Ducks 1, 2, and yes even 3.

    Shows up on two threads in one day, reminding me just how much I hate For Love of the Game. Not because it was the worst I've seen, but because they butchered my favorite book. I honestly don't think I'd have hated it nearly as much as I do if I hadn't read the book. I was so excited when I saw a trailer for it (didn't realize they were making a movie of the book), and about halfway through I was PISSED!

    But Ed was much worse, or at least the 15 minutes I watched of it on cable was.

    Sirs, Madames,

    It doesn't get worse than John Goodman as The Babe.

    As Moddy would say, "Who beat?"

    Days Of Thunder. Feeds every stereotype of NASCAR and Bruckheimer movies all into one. Absofuckinglutely pathetic.

    At least with Air Bud, they named the movies with the punny finesse of a porn director:

    The soccer one? "Air Bud: World Pup"

    The football one? "Air Bud: Golden Receiver"

    The volleyball one? "Air Bud Spikes Back"

    The baseball one? "Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch"

    These I recited from memory, because my little kids loved these movies. In fact, I would toss the "Air Bud" series out from the worst list because it was so obviously aimed at small children. And at least the first one wasn't terrible -- it had the nerd from American Graffiti directing, and the late, great Michael Jeter as a sort of evil Mr. Noodle. In other news, I don't get out much anymore.

    Any of them are certainly better than the craposaurus that is "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," which I hated so much, I think I'll mention that fact in every post I produce, just to get it out of my system.

    Agreed. And they were kinda going for cheesiness, so I can forgive them. It wasn't meant to be taken seriously.

    But I cannot believe we're on page 4 and nobody has mentioned the suckfest that was Any Given Sunday, a movie that actually aspired to be profound and ended up being worse than The Replacements.

    Pacino, whose merits have been debated on another thread, was in full overacting mode as the coach and Cameron Diaz was even less believable as the tough chick owner. And the script had more holes than the Knicks' roster.

    Days of Thunder is beyond terrible.
