Action comedies are usually a pretty successful genre. People will normally be happy with a movie as long as it makes them laugh and has a scene or two of car chases or gunfights. While the lead actor, Keenen Ivory Wayans can be funny, he’s certainly no action hero. Apparently, those weren’t enough to save “A Low Down Dirty Shame.”
The story here is that of Andre Shame, a retired cop who turned into a private investigator and trying to solve a narcotics-related mystery. There is, of course, a romantic subplot, featuring Jada Pinkett, but even that wasn’t enough to save the movie from itself and the controversial blaxploitation it displays.
This black comedy is the first work of producer Robert Simonds, and it's honestly surprising he kept producing other films after making this horrible one. But he did, and he may have improved a little bit as his experience grew. "Problem Child" features Michael Oliver, John Ritter, Gilbert Gottfried, and more actors who would probably love to forget they have ever sign on to this cinematic flop.
Rotten Tomatoes calls the film an "unpleasant comedy." Sounds cringy and not at all inviting. It tells the story of a seven-year-old misbehaving orphan boy who gets adopted by a loving couple. They suffer the wrath of the boy for a while until he gets kidnapped and they go to rescue him. Sounds bad? That's because it is.
Tom Selleck stars in this film as Jon Aldrich, a stockbroker who has it all. His life is perfect until his parents move in with him. Sounds like the start of a nice family comedy, but this is hardly the case here. Critics say that this film gives the elderly some really bad rep and that it tries to be both vicious and tender at the same time.
Nobody's perfect. Not even Tom Selleck. How else would you explain him starring in the worst movie in his career? While he is known to mostly play lovable characters which win over the viewers, this time was different. This time his performance even got him a golden raspberry nomination for Worst Actor.
"Wagons East" is a western comedy directed by Peter Markle. It tells the story of a few pioneers trying to make their way back home after giving up on the frontier life. Their journey is riddled with adventures courtesy of the crazy wagonmaster. The film stars Richard Lewis and John Candy, and the latter might be the only reason why anyone has ever bothered to watch it.
You see, Candy died from a heart attack on one of the last days of filming. The movie was released five months following his death, which made the critics very sorry to have watched it as Candy's last work.Ultimately, "Wagons East" became a candidate for one of the worst movies.
White House drama is nothing new. We get a movie with that kind of plot at least once every couple of years it has to have some serious novelty in order to have an impact on anyone, so most of those films aren't the greatest cinematic masterpieces ever made. Still, "Shadow Conspiracy" might be the worst of them yet.
In this film, Jacob Conrad (portrayed by Donald Sutherland) is a member of the White House staff who makes plans to assassinate the President. His plan is then revealed by Bobby Bishop (Charlie Sheen), another staff member. Turns out, the film's lack of touch with reality is what turned it into the flop it is with only $2 million in the box office in the States.
