Good entry, its always more fun talking about the "worst". Halle Barry's acceptance speech is great!

Years ago, humorist Dave Barry wrote a column about people's least favorite songs, and was overwhelmed at the response. Over 10,000 votes were cast and they are still coming in. Truly heartfelt expressions of disgust, "You know that song about Pina Coladas? I HATE that song!" Barry ended up wtih enough material for a book ("MacArthur Park" by Richard Harris took top "honors".)

As an aside, my wife was an art major in college, and of course took a painting course. The prof said he would give an "A" for paintings he really liked, and also for paintings he really hated.

I don't recall ever having seen a Halle Berry film. I may have done. I wouldn't recognise her if she walked up to me on the street and tried to sell me a roasted chestnut. But, after reading that speech, I'm a fan!

Eddie Murphy won 3 last nightsmiley - biggrin but the worst film was 'I Know Who Killed Me'

They're already expecting next year's "star" of the Razzies to be Sly Stallone, before they've even seen his filmsmiley - laugh

That's even earlier than the review I read of "Battlefield Earth" that was released in May 2000. The reviewer called it the worst movie of the 21st Century. And don't tell me that's the 20th century, the party was "1999" smiley - somersault
