The Hunt For The Worst Movie Of All Time: Preliminary Candidates

Earlier today, I launched the Hunt for the Worst Movie of All Time. The ground rules are simple:

  1. It cannot be intentionally horrible.
  2. It must have at least one A- or B-list movie star in it. (no “outsider art.”)
  3. It cannot be Glitter.
  4. It has to have had a theatrical release.

So far, these are the nominees I’ve received:

  • The Road to Wellville
  • Passion Fish
  • Lady in the Water
  • Heaven’s Gate
  • Rush Hour 3
  • Shopgirl
  • Strangeland

Why do I feel like I somehow just Double Dogged myself? I’m saving Lady In The Water for last because it would be weird to find The Worst Movie Of All Time on my first try. If you have a suggestion for TWMOAT, please leave it in the comments, or email me. I will watch suggested movies and write about them here, and we will get to the dark bottom of this together.
