The fourth task in the five day recommendation challenge called for a movie that did not do well with critics. This was another one that was difficult for me because, well.... I like a lot of bad movies. So I just started looking at scores for some of my favorites and I came across a pretty low score for one my favorite comedies.

That's right. I love Gold.... member. To me, not only was this a hilarious comedy, but I think it was the best movie in the series. Yeah, I said it. I know they used the same jokes. I know it's a recycled story. I don't care, it's still hilarious.

Austin Powers in Goldmember received a 54% score from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. And the comments are not good.

"I expected laughs and instead got a sad spectacle of recycled jokes and lame running gags." - Felix Vasquez Jr.

"...They would be best off quitting before they fall any farther behind." - Michael Dequina

"This movie is hilarious." - Me
