have you ever had two Asian men pummel your balls right after you had sex with a questionably attractive older woman?

Big Stan (2007)
Chosen by Sabine Woolnough who had this to say about why she chose it: 'because i know you will hate it /diabolical laughter'

The kindest thing I can say about Sabine right now is that she was totally correct.
Hate may not be a strong enough word to describe just how negatively I reacted to this film.
About ten minutes in a sent her a message to say I don't know if I wanted to kill her or myself.
Basically an hour and a half of rape jokes, it has no sense of ironic distance to make the grossly offensive material palatable and no sense of comic timing to even be funny.
Horridly overplayed by everyone involved (Jennifer Morrison almost manages to eke out some sympathy for her role as Schneider's unfortunate wife) there is nothing redeeming about this film what-so-ever.
I don't really care that David Carradine debasing himself in every way here (making him a star in two of the worst films I've seen with Crank 2), but it saddened me to see the awesome M. Emmet Walsh slumming once again - he deserves better but was looking pretty ropey here (I was surprised to see him, thinking he was dead).

Not just the worst film I have seen for my film a day project but one of the worst films I have seen of all time.

  1. I'll give you something worse:

    House of the Dead, by Uwe Boll.

    It's that bad, that even the sequel, which is a bad b-movie, looks halfway reasonable in comparison.
