“The Cable Guy” (1996)
IMDb score: 5.9 / Rotten Tomatoes: 53%
Before Jim Carrey torpedoed what was left of his mainstream career with the god-awful “The Number 23”, “The Cable Guy” was widely regarded as one of his absolute worst films. It was dark and weird, and no one talked with his butt. It also has some of the most bizarrely funny scenes ever filmed. See, that was the thing with “The Cable Guy.” It’s just too strange and creepy compared to Carrey’s other work. The lovable Ace Ventura is replaced with Chip Douglas, a lisping stalker who systematically destroys Ferris Bueller’s life after he ends their friendship. Jousting, prostitution, bathroom violence and masks made of chicken skin all appear at one point or another in the film. Pure and simple, it is the work of mad genius the likes of which we will most likely never see again.
“Observe and Report” (2009)
IMDb score: 6.0 / Metascore: 54
Funnily enough, my submission for the application to be this blog’s writer was a defense of “Observe and Report.” And I still stand by every word. You will be hard-pressed to find a movie as mean-spirited and have an equally difficult time finding one as funny. Basically, it is a comedic reimagining of “Taxi Driver,” and, as strange as that sounds on paper, it works. Seth Rogen plays a manic-depressive security guard who finally gets his chance for glory when a flasher begins terrorizing the local mall. The film’s writer is also one of the primary creators of “Eastbound and Down,” so the humor is as ruthless and politically incorrect as one could hope for. No doubt the majority hated it for this reason, and the resulting of ire it drew from them only makes me love the film more.
If you know any great movies that no one likes or simply want to rant about my poking fun at “True Grit” feel free to comment.
The Best Movies Everyone HatedWritten by Zack Mattioni
I recently saw the “True Grit” remake, and my first thought was, “Hey, that was pretty decent”. Then I found out it was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including a best lead performance for Jeff Bridges. Really? At the very most, you can only understand about 60 percent of what the hell he’s saying during the movie. I didn’t see “Pootie Tang” sweep during award season. But instead of complaining, for once I’m going to take a positive approach and talk about some great movies nobody liked.

I wanted to love this as I love the original and the Coen Bs but it seemed pedestrian in comparison. I agree with MP that it paralleled the original almost identically until the last 20 mins - I don't actually mind that, cos that means they loved the original too, but it didn't seem to live for itself until too late. I think the original had an innocence in Kim Darby's performance (even if she was 21) that made the whole idea of Maddy's quest work. Although all actors are great, and I applaud the attempt, it did not work.
