The Lyrics

So that big film is universally derided as a pile of monkey butts...so why's it number one at the box-office?
I don't understand
The reviews say it's crap
The leads failed to a-act
Blatant commercial shill
But somehow it worked
Made a ton of ca-ash

It's abysma-al
Profit's substantia-a-al
Filled with boom mics galore
Who would pay to see that?
Oh-oh-oh

It sucks, but it's lu-, but it's lucrative
Film sucks, CG looks quite bad in motio-ion
It sucks, but it's lu-, but it's lucrative
I've thought real hard, how'd this arse-pile get noticed?

The jokes are so crude
Anachronistic, too
It's pure crap to me-e
It's the 50's, explain
Why that guy said "cray"
No sense I can see-ee

How'd this pile of shi-it
Turn a huge profi-i-i-it?
I've searched, can't find a reason
Why this made money
Oh-oh-oh

It sucks, but it's lu-, but it's lucrative
Sure sucks, in fact, I'd say it's atrociou-ious
It sucks, but it's lu-, but it's lucrative
Who cast the parts? All half-arse their emotions
Oooh-oh-oh-oh

Not the cast, the script or the directio-ion
Could make this not la-a-ame
But it's ev'ryone's "Movie Night" selection
What do I not get, explai-ain
Oh-oh-oh

It sucks, but it's lu-, but it's lucrative
And thus my faith in good films is broke-en
It sucks, but it's lu-, but it's lucrative
Who needs good art when half-arsed shit's promoted?

It sucks, but it's lu-, but it's lucrative
So rough in editing, needs a lotio-ion
It sucks, but it's lu-, but it's lucrative
Watch it to snark? That's a half-decent notion

It sucks, but it's lu-, but it's lucrative (ooh, very lucrative)
May suck, but it brings out fond emotio-ions
It sucks, but it's lu-, but it's lucrative
Can't be too harsh if your heart finds it awesome
Ooh-ooh

Ah, the power of So Bad, It's Good. Still don't know how films that are So Bad, They're Horrible still find success...word of mouth is overrated, I guess.

I know a lot of movies that fits into this category... -cough-Transformers-cough-

Great idea for a title sub/theme, nicely-executed. Like Matthias, I can think of quite a few where the descriptions fits :-)

I think it applies to majority of what Michael Bay has directed.

A friend called the other night to tell me just how bad this year's Academy Award winner was. Not that I was going to see it, but I would rather hear someone else describe a film than pay to see it.

@Patrick: Birdman was amazing. You really should go see it. Your friend is crazy if he/she thinks that is a bad movie. It's amazingly shot (making it seem like it's all done in one shot) with a fun story and a great cast!
