1
Obsessed
This take on Fatal Attraction starring Beyonce was so ridiculous and we ate up every over-the-top second of it. Especially the knock-down drag-out fight between Queen B and Ali Larter.
2
Gigli
A strong contender for worst movie of all time. We don’t even remember what it’s about, all we know is RIP Bennifer. Let’s watch it and mock, shall we?
3
Showgirls
Seeing Jessie Spano as a stripper will forever change how you watch Saved by the Bell, but the sheer awfulness of this movie is worth it. It’s a cult classic for a reason.

LOL
LOL indeed. Before she came in like a wrecking ball, Miley Cyrus starred in this wreck of a coming-of-age movie. It went straight to DVD and rates a cool 17% on Rotten Tomatoes. Many (unintentional) LOLs to be had, though.
5
She's the Man
Amanda Bynes, in saner times, plays a girl who pretends to be a boy in order to play on an all boys’ soccer team. The whole premise is super weird and cringeworthy – primed for a satisfying hate-watch.
6
The Interview
We were mocking this one even before the whole Sony hacking controversy. Then watching it became somewhat of a patriotic duty. Still doesn't make it a good movie, but we didn't need North Korea to tell us that.

Glitter
Mariah Carey’s first starring vehicle crashed and burned. Mariah had a breakdown just before its release, because she probably realized what was in store. Bet you forgot Terrence Howard is in this. Bet he tried to forget too.
8
Material Girls
Hilary Duff and Haylie Duff in a movie together. That’s just guaranteed magic. They play rich sisters who suddenly find themselves broke and homeless. OMG, totes unfair!
9
Remember Me
This movie, starring Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin, might have been an okay indie romance, but then it had a completely unnecessary 9/11 twist that made us all cringe. You'll be yelling at your TV by the end.

The Happening
Remember when M. Night Shyamalan made movies with good plot twists? This was not one of them. Come for the silly premise (plants are attacking humans), stay for the wooden performances by Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel.
11
Snakes on a Plane
Even the title is ridiculous. This movie doesn't even try to hide how outrageous and campy it is, and that's what makes it so fun to hate-watch.
12
Mommie Dearest
Watch Faye Dunaway go bonkers playing Joan Crawford in this 1981 cult classic. You can even have a quote-along. "No wire hangers, ever!!!"

Twilight
We hate-watch Twilight but secretly love it. The movie takes itself way too seriously and there are lots of unintentional laughs, but you’ll laugh at yourself too, for liking Bella and Edward in spite of it all.
14
The Roommate
This one almost seems like a bad Lifetime movie, and we’re not complaining. It’s completely crazy – so naturally drop whatever you’re doing and watch it.
15
Abduction
First clue that you’re gonna love hate-watching this one: It’s called Abduction but no one is really “abducted” in this movie. It’s mostly just Taylor Lautner running around in a convoluted plot involving the FBI and the CIA.
