10 Awful Movies That Actors Loved Shooting

These movies fell flat, but still created a fun time for those involved.


When a great film breaks records and cleans up during awards season, it can drastically elevate the cast who took part in its production. Either they pull off an impeccable performance that resonates with audiences or the project as a whole soars to new heights in the movie-making business.

Then there are the times where the opposite occurs; often it only takes one box office bomb or a single miserly performance to pull an actor down from their lofty perch. We've seen this happen with the likes of Cutthroat Island and Catwoman, to name just a few.

On occasion though, we have something in-between, that off-kilter production that doesn't tarnish an actor's career, but instead gave them a rollicking good time even with critical scathing. A project may be poorly thought out, but the cast and production crew still had a blast making it.

Lambasted by critics and audiences alike, the ten films in this list may have fallen woefully short in many respects, but the actors had a good time producing them. To make the cut here, a movie has to have been received poorly but the production cycle still offered some enjoyment along the way.
