Huckleberries Online


Issue: In the “Huckleberries” site I visit, one of the topix people are talking about are baaad movies. The blog-meister of that site said he & the wife had seen the new version of “Bewitched” and how awful it was compared to the original TV series. You want bad movies? Try any of the mid-60’s movies that ELVIS starred in. In my collection I have “Clambake” (ugh!), “Harum Scarum” (huh?), “Blue Hawaii” (dreck!) and “Fun In Acapulco” (almost believable, but ultimately as cheesy as all the others). In one movie, he’s in a tiny little coupe with a woman, and all of a sudden, he sings, “No Room To Rhumba In A Sports Car”; in ‘Blue Hawaii’, he sings about “Queenie Wahini’s Papaya”. Ack. This from the man who gave us “Hound Dog”, “Too Much”, “Jailhouse Rock” and other classics — CDADave/Thin Air.

DFO: My Sweetie and Amy Dearest informed me that I was all wet about Nicole Kidman/Will Ferrell’s “Bewitched.” That is was cute. Which goes to show what I know about chick flicks. If it isn’t fantasy/sci-fi/good animation/action, I’m not a good reviewer. CDADave might be right about bad movies involving Elvis the Pelvis. (I can’t believe I actually paid money to see “Hound Dog Man.”)

Question: What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?
