What's the worst movie you've every paid money for?

Either in the theatre, rented or bought on video or DVD.

I hate to admit this, I actually paid good money to see...

The Garbage Pail Kids Movie

in the theatre.

AAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My friend really wanted to see it, begged me to go with him. I made him pay my way for the next two movies for the torture he put me through.

Paid full price to see "Mixed Nuts" at the theaters. It's the only movie that I've actually asked for my money back. The manager agreed with me. It was just horrible.

I did walk out of "The Paper", but I had only paid a buck to see it at the cheap theater.

The Avengers

I have never walked out of a movie before but that was the closest I ever came.

The Scorpion King... ughhhh..

Rental of JasonX... I suppose it did have some redeeming value to it.. I can't remember the countless times I rolled on the floor, laughing my ass off at the movie's wonderful plot holes.

I rented Campfire Stories thinking it was Campfire Tales (campy and dumb, but still an OK B movie). Campfire Stories is without a doubt the worst movie I have ever seen. Bar none.

I can't believe what people will say is the WORST movie they have ever paid for. People here must have very limited exposure to movies, or just trying to be controversal.

I hated Monsters Ball. I didn't even watch the whole thing when I rented it. It was probably due to the strong sexual stuff. I can "deal" with some stuff, but I don't watch porn for a reason, which is what this movie turned into at one point.

A movie in the 70's called The Strawberry Experiment or something like that. My friends and I walked out of the theatre, along with everyone else.

Rental? Geez.. who really knows? There have been so many over the years!

For theater, hands down it was The Handmaid's Tale. I wanted to leave so badly during that movie, but was stuck with 2 other people.

Reign of Fire was probably the worst I have seen in a theater.

As far as rental or movie I bought Eightenth Angel for rental.

Wickerman for one I bought.
