What’s The Cheesiest Movie You’ve Seen, But Couldn’t Stop Watching? [VIDEO]
Discovery Channel’s ‘Shark Week’ starts this Sunday. I wonder if ‘Sharknado’ will be a part of the lineup.
Just released at the end of July, my wife and I caught the end of “Sharknado 2: The Second One” on SyFy, and couldn’t stop laughing at how ridiculously bad it was. I mean, so bad that it’s funny. We couldn’t understand how the shark in ‘Jaws’, made in the 70s, looks more real than the sharks in the ‘Sharknado’ movies.
After laughing hysterically at the last 10 minutes of the sequel, we had to see how it all started. The first movie, released last year, stars former ‘Beverly Hills 90210′ star Ian Ziering, and ‘American Pie’ star Tara Reid. The storyline was sub par, the script was loaded with campy lines, and the specials effects look like they were put together by children.
To give you an idea, here’s a few examples. While an EF5 tornado is wreaking havoc on L.A., the actors are fleeing yet in some camera shots, it sunny. Sharks falling from the sky land in flooded streets without making a splash. A helicopter takes off right in front of the lead actors, yet their hair doesn’t move. When the sharks are attacking, they sound like vicious dogs when gnawing on people. And in the second installment, a shark slams into the side of a passenger jet punching a hole in the side depressurizing the cabin. Even though some passengers are sucked out, a few sharks are somehow sucked in and begin feasting.
The second one did have a lot of celebrity cameos, including Al Roker and Matt Lauer, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan, and Stephanie Abrams as themselves. Billy Ray Cyrus, Downtown Julie Brown, Andy Dick, and Judd Hirsch had some supporting roles. Even the actor who played Ted Stryker in the movie ‘Airplane’ played the pilot in ‘Sharknado 2′. What movies or TV shows have you seen that were so stupid, so cheesy, so absurd, so ridiculous that you couldn’t take your eyes off of it? Let us know in the comments section, and get ready for ‘Sharknado 3′ set for a 2015 release.
