Although there were many choice picks on the list, I went with "Other" and my pick was St. Elmo's Fire.

Dont know if it was actually in the 80s or 90s, seems like it shoulda been 80s.  Tremors 2.  I loved Tremors 1, its one of my all time faves.  But Tremors 2, come on.  No Kevin Bacon?

Tremors 2 was from the mid '90's.

Tremors came out in 1990.

On the poll, I went with Grease II.
I can see why some people don't like A Fish Called Wanda, but no one can really say it ranks among the worst of the '80s, can they?

Among the WORST major motion pictures of the '80s should be
ONE CRAZY SUMMER

I agree with Maxwell, Grease II was absolutely awful!  So were some of the others on the list, but of the ones I actually saw, this one was the worst.

I liked alot of those movies for the pure cheesiness and awfulness of it. :o But I really didn't enjoy Ishtar at all.

I know Howard the Duck was a total bomb, but I still liked a few bits in it.  Jeffrey Jones' character was funny.
On the set of Who Framed Roger Rabbit cast and crew members were forbidden to mention "Howard the Duck."  I forgot where I read that!

China stinkers:
The High Road to China
Big Trouble in Little China
:P

I know people will hate me for this but I thought Weird Science was a terrible movie!  I can still watch all of the John Hughes movies (even though they are a bit dated and to some degree, because of it,) but Weird Science is unbearable to me.

"Basket Case" 1982 By Frank Helenlotter
the plot: A young man carrying a big basket, containing his deformed Siamese brother is seeking revenge on the doctors who separated them.

lol i watched it like 4 times even through each time is just as painful

Howard the Duck, that movie was just so dumb.

Subject: Re: Worst '80's Movie

Written By: MaxwellSmart on 05/18/04 at 5:13 pm

Oh yeah,
TUFF TURF
shoulda been on the list.  One of the movies where they didn't bother to edit out things like boom mikes hanging down, and crew members scurrying off the set as cameras started to roll.  Otherwise Tuff Turf was like all the other terrible teen movies, but just a bit more, um, terrible.

Oh, and maybe the Australian freestyle BMX movie RAD deserved a spot on the poll.

I forgot about that!  ;D  I also remember seeing a hand grabbing a swinging rope after the bad guy was killed.  Too funny!

I agree!  My girlfriend and I went to see this movie at the drive in on a double date, they were actually passing out barf bags as a publicity stunt.  Stupid movie!  Right up there with "sleepaway camp".

Jaws 3-D b/c it was a big letdown.

But, steel magnolias was good! Am I the only one who didn't have a big problem with Howard the Duck?
