Movie was OK or bad but the soundtrack was awesome?

I recently got around to watching my long awaited for copy of Club Paradise. It's kind of a stinker. I found it really funny once and I still like it but there've been worse movies. I gotta say I love the soundtrack. I guess it helped having Jimmy Cliff in the movie otherwise I just can't see the guys who would make a movie like this be able to even suggest having these songs in their movie.

Any other incidences like this?

Personally, I loved the movie...but I know that some didn't. Given that, I'm not sure if this really fits what you're looking for, but I feel obligated to mention Garden State in any thread with the words "the soundtrack was awesome" in the title.

Joe Dirt comes to mind.

1. Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd
2. Walk On Water - Eddie Money
3. Hold Your Head Up - Argent
4. You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet - Bachman-Turner Overdrive
5. When I'm With You - Sheriff
6. Cat Scratch Fever - Ted Nugent
7. Who Do You Love - George Thorogood & The Destroyers
8. China Grove - The Doobie Brothers
9. Rocky Mountain Way - Joe Walsh
10. Roller - April Wine
11. Burnin' For You - Blue Oyster Cult
12. If You Want My Love - Cheap Trick

Ocean's Twelve. The eclectic soundtrack by David Holmes is excellent - so good that it made the movie more watchable than it should've been, given the script.

This thread in Music Talk may help a bit.

Batman Forever
Dracula 2000
Judgement Night
Mortal Kombat 1&2
Howard Stern: Private Parts
Stigmata

Most of those fall in the "OK" movie.

Soundtracks:

The Saint(terrible movie, but I still listen to a lot of those songs 9 years later)

Scores:

Dragonheart(incredible music that deserved to be in a Lord of the Rings-type epic)
Diamonds Are Forever(really good John Barry score stuck in a mediocre Bond flick)
Edward Scissorhands(didn't care for the movie, but that Ice Dance theme still gives me chills)

props for Xanadu, strongly agree!

I always thought the score and music in American Beauty was a very strong part of that movie.

Purple Rain-Prince may be brilliant when it comes to music but between him and Applelonia(sp?)I've seen better highschool stage plays

Mummy Returns - Alan Silvestri's score is awesome
Cutthroat Island - Probably the best Action-Adventure score ever composed for a mediocre movie

Alexander-love Vangelis, and his score elevated this otherwise horrible movie to merely bad

Flash Gordon-the epitome of better ST than movie, can't even picture a re-make without the Queen music

Conan the Barbarian-okay, I like this movie, but the music really stands out

Eye of the Beholder-not a great movie, but interesting pseudo-new age ST

I forgot to mention that one. Of course, I've never seen Cutthroat Island, so I guess technically I can't include it on my list. Still, it's an incredible score. I think a movie like Pirates of the Caribbean would've been enhanced greatly by that kind of music.

Vanilla Sky is a good movie, but the soundtrack is even better.
