I miss Rudy Ray Moore's movies.

Well, not really but I do wish Claudia Jennings had lived to make GATOR BAIT 2.

One of my favorite books from the mid-1990s was called Bad Movies We Love--a compendium of "big budgets, big hair, big mistakes." The movies in that book weren't low-budget Ed Wood-level schlock, they were the major studio releases of stars like Liz Taylor, Sharon Stone, Lana Turner, and Julia Roberts. A great book and very funny.

/I guess the old adage, "No one sets out to make a bad movie" now fades to irrelevance.

It won't surprise you to know that I own that book.

My husband and I still quote the line from the review of Harley Davison and the Marlboro Man: Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson play guys who've been friends since Hugh school. Judging by their outfits, they must have met at Village People High.

I hadn't put together why I have no interest in these movies, despite an abiding interest in the MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER school of unearthing bad films. Now I know why.
