  1. Surprised no one has introduced this one yet - much as I love it when HDTGM does the thrillers and sci-fi stuff, you really need the occasional "chick flick" to diversify things, and I think people forget just how goddamn weird and inexplicably unfunny this very mainstream and legitimately financially-successful movie was. Beyond Julia Roberts in a fat suit and a whole plotline about a video that people think shows John Cusack masturbating, you've got Christopher Walken playing an eccentric filmmaker obviously based on the late Hal Ashby who does something that would not only get a director fired but sued and arrested... the whole movie is about movie making, is made by people who have made many movies, and yet its plot is dependent on so many things happening that would just never happen on a Hollywood film or in an actual Hollywood press junket. Hank Azaria is in it, though, basically playing Antonio Banderas, and he's legitimately hilarious.
  2. we don't know who or what we are rooting for; Colin Firth; over the top English people, we never learn what a girl wants either Colin Firth No clear plot
  3. How do you make a romcom that features Luke Wilson, Ben Affleck, Denise Richards, Melissa McCarthy, Matt Damon, Lauren Graham, Jeff Garlin, and the O-Face guy from Office Space and have it go 12 years completely unseen to most of the movie watching public? When it's this fucking bad: Trailer: Synopsis: After more than a year fantasizing about asking out his co-worker, Stanley (Luke Wilson) finally asks Diana Evans (Denise Richards) out on a date. As the two venture out on their first date, Stanley hits a homeless man Phil (Jay Lacopo) with his car, and the events that follow are far from the night of romance that Stanley had planned. Meanwhile, Stan's co-workers, including his friend, Michael (Ben Affleck), are monitoring the date between Stan and Diana, and they are betting on how far Stan will get with the beautiful Diana. It's available to stream on Netflix if you feel inclined to subject yourself to this weird, weird, brand of comedy.

    My Boss's Daughter (2003)

    For your consideration, My Boss's Daughter. This one may be too awful... but it might make a great HDTGM episode. I saw this "romantic"-"comedy" on a date in high school, and we absolutely hated it. It is completely delirious. Ashton Kutcher plays a nice guy seeking his big career break while working under a tyrannical boss (Terence Stamp) at a publishing company. He's also interested in the bosses daughter (Tara Reid). Ashton gets his chance to impress his boss and Tara when he offers to house-sit the boss's manor for a night. Naturally a series of completely unbelievable coincidences, misunderstandings and random events (such as the boss's pet owl escaping and consuming toilet water laced with drugs) leave Ashton struggling to hide from the oblivious Tara what a disaster the night has become. Not a single character really comes of as human or relate-able. In the vein of "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" there is a scene where Tara feels safe performing a striptease for Ashton because she believes he is gay. (Has that ever happened?) I think delirious is the best way to describe it as there is so much crazy happening and all the characters just roll with it. Its gross; its potentially offensive. There are a few supporting actors who struggle though this film as well. Andy Richtor arrives as Tara's delinquent brother on the run from drug dealers and at one point shows his bare ass. Carmen Electra shows up in a wet t-shirt. I think Keenan from "Keenan and Kel" attempts suicide, if I recall correctly. Molly Shannon as the butt of a joke making fun of spousal abuse. Don't worry, there's room for jokes targeting the handicapped and mentally ill as well. It did awful in theaters and was almost universally hated by critics (for whom the film was not screened in advance). Here are a few of the more amusing quotes from top critics found on Rotten Tomatoes.. -"Even after sitting through it you can't swear you've seen it. It vanishes while you watch, like disappearing ink." -"Mr. Kutcher's comic style is a series of disbelieving blinks and flinches that make him look like a newly hatched ostrich still getting acclimated to his long legs and neck." -"With [Kutcher and Reid] as the star-crossed couple, the title of this movie should have been Zero Plus Zero Equals Zero." -"Three year old brain-dead variant of Risky Business" -"Zucker directs this mess like a substitute teacher soldiering through a day's work for a day's pay at a decertified school."
