    People Shared "Bad" Movies That Are Actually Good, And Points Were Made

    I, for one, love Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community which "bad" movies they actually love. Here's what they said:

    1. Eternals (2021)

    “I wouldn’t consider Eternals the best MCU movie, but I definitely don’t think it was as bad as critics said. Sure, it had some problems, but I truly loved the characters and this dysfunctional family so much. I bet this is an MCU movie people will look back on in a few years and realize how incredible it was and how much it set up for future movies.”

    2. Hocus Pocus (1993)

    "Seriously, Hocus Pocus is the best. I've loved it my whole life and whoever gave it a low score must've seen a different movie than me."

    5. A Sound of Thunder (2005)

    Warner Bros / Everett Collection

    "I love A Sound of Thunder. It only got a 6% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but I enjoyed watching it. It's about a time-traveling company, and how the accidental death of one little butterfly has huge evolutionary and devastating consequences. The special effects are bad, and there are plot holes, yet it's very entertaining if you don't expect high quality and don't take it too seriously."

    8. Showgirls (1995)

    "Showgirls is only at 22%, but I absolutely love it. It's ridiculous and over-the-top and INCREDIBLY compelling (and Gina Gershon is an absolute treasure)."

    Current score on Rotten Tomatoes: 22% out of 100%

    Where you can watch it: So, Showgirls isn't currently available to stream on any sites but there are a TON of clips of the movie on YouTube. 

    9. Hook (1991)

    Tristar Pictures / Everett Collection

    "It's one of my top five favorite movies and it only has a 29% on Rotten Tomatoes. It's Robin Williams as Peter Pan!!! What's not to love?"

    "It’s really funny and entertaining. Yes, some of it is unrealistic but it’s definitely more realistic than almost all the Fast and Furious movies. And it has a bunch of successful actors in it that were just getting their start at the time. Plus, lots of beautiful classic cars."

    "I honestly find Just Go With It incredibly entertaining. It has plenty of cringe moments, but some genuinely hilarious ones (most thanks to Nick Swardson). Also, I find Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler's chemistry super watchable!"

    12. Passengers (2016)

    "Passengers was a decent movie. Yes, he woke her up and she forgave him...but she basically had no choice but to make the best of their circumstances."

    13. Practical Magic (1998)

    Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock
    Warner Bros / Everett Collection

    "It is superior and it has everything you could want — amazing '90s fashion and hair, witchcraft, the beautiful Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock (complete with midnight margarita dance scene) and set in my dream house. It only has 22%, I think, but it is a cult classic and should be rectified."

    14. Daylight (1996)

    "I actually like Daylight with Sylvester Stallone. In the movie, after a tunnel collapses Sylvester gets in to save the survivors. It's a pretty cool movie."

    15. Elektra (2005)

    "Elektra is a great movie and you cannot change my friggin' mind! It did a really good job with what it had to work with, and it doesn’t hurt that Jennifer Garner was a perfect casting choice."

    16. Drive Angry (2011)

    Amber Heard and Nicolas Cage sitting in a car with a broken windshield
    Summit Entertainment / Everett Collection

    "A true masterpiece of a Nic Cage film. I watched it a whim and nearly broke a rib laughing my ass off. It is a wild, cocaine-fueled, adrenaline-packed, whiplashing, ridiculous, and thrilling ride of a film — not a million miles away from Crank and genuinely one of my go-to feel-good movies. Not only is it up there with the most batshit of action films but the plot is surprisingly intriguing and it has some great characters, alas Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb say otherwise it's a 48% and no one EVER talks about it. To me, it's a true gem of a 'bad movie.' Just sit down, shut up and you WILL be entertained."

    18. Suicide Squad (2016)

    Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn holding a mallet
    Warner Bros / Everett Collection

    "I know I'm going to get some hate for this, but the first Suicide Squad was silly campy fun. I think the Marvel movies really upped the game, making anything other than Marvel movies seem silly, and that's both good AND bad because now, we can't have a mindless fun blowup fest without someone calling out the film for 'lack of plot.' Sometimes I want to cry during a movie, but other times, I just want to zone out and watch a super-hot dude with powers or amazing abilities mess shit up, no rhyme or reason!"

    19. And finally, Cats (2019)

    Taylor Swift as a Cat
    Universal Pictures / Everett Collection

    "MY GOD! Cats is not that bad. No, it's not poetic cinema, but it does not deserve all the hate."
