I haven't seen one in ages, but a long time ago some TV station used to show the old "Our Gang" comedies. From a modern perspective, they're horrific: bad, hammy child actors, no plots, lots of racist stuff, etc. Yet somehow I could not avert my eyes. I don't know why.

What other shows or movies are really, really bad, but for some reason (perhaps their very badness), you can't not watch them?

Every movie about a rag tag group of kids that form a sports team. Or basically any kid/sport movie.

Bad News Bears (all of them)

Sometimes late at night I'll watch one of those televangelist shows for a while. It's like looking into another world, with all of the audience members crying and waving their arms and stuff.

For the wife, it's ANY damned reality show. ANY. She can't get enough of that crap.

That Jessica Simpson show. Her breasts may have something to do with it, however.

Tremors. Kevin Bacon is truly at his best in that epic film.

You are allowed a free pass for that one.

Early Batman two-parter shown BTB. Gotta watch the next half! The diatribe was horrendous, gadgets were incredible, but man, who couldn't NOT watch the Riddler, the Joker, Catwoman, and Batgirl in action!

Elimidate, Blind Date and Jerry Springer.

Is Elimidate the show where they've got the guys in a bus or trailer or something, and then the woman gets a few minutes to pick out one to date?

I saw about five minutes of that show once (whatever it was). These four or five guys are in the trailer talking about their various strategies for their two minutes to impress this girl, and then they called the first guy out. He leaves the trailer, walks over to the girl, and before he can say anything more than 'hi', she says "No", and they lead the poor stunned guy away. Harsh. Very harsh.

Elimidate is the one where one guy goes on a date with 4 girls simultaneously (or the reverse, one gal with 4 guys). The 4 girls compete with each other for the guys attention usually attacking each other verbally and/ or phsyically while the guy generally tries to make out with as many as possible and figure out if there is a chance for a threesome. Those who won't fight or make out are "eliminated".

Jerry Lewis Telethon.

I don't think they perform anymore, but I used to be mesmerized by Steve Lawrence and Edie Gorme. I'd watch whatever talk show or variety show they were on. They just oozed showbiz insincerity.

sometimes I'll watch some really stupid movies on HBO that they play late at night, like the one I watched the other night called Sacrifice.....horrible

I prefer Blind Date to Elimidate. I love the post-modern popup bubbles.

As far as movies go, everytime I go to the movie store I am tempted to rent "Nothing but Trouble." It is disturbingly bad. About the only thing that keeps me from renting it is that I don't want to spend good money on something so bad.

Ohhhhh, the bubbles. I've seen Blind Date a couple of times. Those bubbles are kind of funny.

Oh, and I'll sometimes get sucked into some of the dumbest infomercials. I can't recall a specific one off of the top of my head but it happens from time to time.

I'm a sensitive guy. I've cried at a lot of movies. Including a few romantic comedies.

However, I will say this for myself: I never PAY to see a romantic comedy.

I was working at home the other night and one of those came on for Victoria Principal skin products. It was just noise in the background, but then I had to watch because one woman started crying when she described how much trouble she had with her skin, and how she was so grateful to Victoria Principal for telling her about her skin products during a chance meeting in an elevator. There were several other women sitting around, and I thought they were all going to start crying. They could really feel the pain of this woman going through life with blemishes.

On another note, Victoria Principal was once far and away the most attractive woman on television. After one face lift too many, she's now 80 percent woman and 20 percent E.T.

Well, my car-wreck curiosity got the best of me, so I searched and found out that Steve and Eydie are indeed STILL PERFORMING.

Those damn Nanny shows will grab me once in awhile. Just to see how horrible those kids are. And the Biggest Loser grabbed me for an episode or two. For the most part though, I only watch NFL and sports related programming... So for that matter Around the Horn.

From Dusk till Dawn. That has to be the stupidest ****ing movie i've ever seen, as far as unexpected plot twists go. Still, its a pretty fun flick.

I also agree with jspchief, except "The Mean Green" and "Ladybugs" really sucked. It just doesn't work for soccer movies.
