Worst Movie Ever? Quite Possibly.

I somehow got tricked into watching the movie The Bodyguard this weekend by Dave, which surprised me, seeing as it really should be classified as a chick-flick and he is SO not into those! Anyway, I had made it all this time without ever watching it. I mean, come on, there's a reason for that. Subconsciously, I knew it was a lot of crap rolled into a 2-hour delivery. But I wasn't fully prepared for just how bad it actually was.

I think the premise of Whitney Houston (the worst actress ever, or pretty darn close) playing a character who was receiving an Oscar for Best Actress was so unbelievably ridiculous that the movie was ruined right there. Shouldn't the director have realized this and changed the script accordingly? Make her a singer receiving a Grammy...I'll buy it. The horrendous acting wouldn't have been so obvious. It's like trying to shoot a film about Paris in Tijuana. By the end of the movie...no, wait, that's a lie...by the middle of the movie, I wanted the bad guy to kill her and end the suffering for all of us.

And really, can you now watch anything with Whitney in it without hearing her yell "Bob-bay!!!!!!" I surely can't.

The Bodyguard...two hours of the worst crap you'll ever witness on film.

HAHA! I haven't seen it since it came out in the theatre (and I was barely a teenager...if that). I thought it was good at the time, but I can TOTALLY see your point now :D

And I loved the virtual high-five. Thanks :)
