Right now, I'm going off of Wikipedia's list of the world's worst films. I like to read off of this list because it helps me understand about bad movies more. I'm going through this list so I can cover two of the worst movies ever made.
Why I would never try to watch 1987's The Garbage Pail Kids Movie
This movie may be rated PG (look closely at the poster above), but this movie has a dreadfully dark secret. Indeed, 1987's The Garbage Pail Kids Movie was based on a cult classic trading card series known as The Garbage Pail Kids, which was a little infamous for its grotesque and rather tasteless and unfunny interpretations of the Cabbage Patch Kids characters. Anyways, I wouldn't recommend checking out or collect any of those trading cards because most of them seem to be horribly crass on almost every single level, but that's just my opinion. However, there's only ONE Garbage Pail Kids card that was at least good; that, my friends, is "Roy Bot", which is awesome because it resembles a mech from Macross. If you're a fan of Japanese or Korean Super Robot cartoons, then by all means, check out that Garbage Pail Kids card. It is at least enjoyable!
Anyways, back to the infamous film adaptation. The Garbage Pail Kids Movie was perhaps notorious for its gross-out humor and the creepy appearance of the Garbage Pail Kids themselves. According to Wikipedia:
Throughout the movie, the Garbage Pail Kids steal, get in fights, bite toes off people, fart in people's faces, threaten others with switch blades, urinate upon themselves, and run over cars. In addition to scatological behavior, the movie has several scenes that feature sexual images, violence, and drinking.
That's how bad the movie is. Many parents were so pissed off at the movie that they organized protests (and probably petitions with tons of signatures) that pulled the movie from circulation. By how bad the movie seems, I wouldn't watch it, and I can cite it's technical reasons: the writing would be complete dog muck, the acting would be flat and lifeless, and the characters would never be cared about at all. I could name some other shock movies that I refuse to see but remember by plot and review: A Serbian Film, Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, Pink Flamingos, and even the controversial anime OVAs Boku no Pico and Bondage Game. However, I'm never going to review those on Moviepilot because The Garbage Pail Kids Movie is less intimidating compared to the movies I listed, but that's not saying much.
I can never recommend giving The Garbage Pail Kids movie for your kids, or just for your personal enjoyment. I don't care if you find it in the bargain bin, or if you see it in a flea market. Don't waste your money on tasteless garbage! In fact, if you want to buy the movie, I suggest you buy as many copies as you can and burn them with lighter fluid over firewood. That's. How. Bad. It. Is!
Now, on to Humshakals!
Humshakals (The Lookalikes), directed by Sajid Khan, is the most recent film from a foreign country to be considered the worst, and perhaps the most recent Bollywood film to do so. Yeah, guys. Humshakals is a Bollywood comedy from 2014 that was very infamous according to various news sources in India. This "family film", according to Mihir Fadnavis of First Post, is "an atrocious, regressive, misogynistic, sexist, homophobic cinematic product force-fed to paying audiences." I wouldn't mind the homophobic part because I don't care about anything LGBT-related, but the misogynistic quality of the movie sorta makes me want to pan the movie deeply, simply because God created men and women equally.
