10 Movies So Crazy Over The Top They Were Hilarious

10. Bad Boys II

Columbia Pictures

Many action movie aficionados have a soft spot for Bad Boys II, largely because of the wall-to-wall shootouts, chases and explosions that dominate the butt-numbing 146 minute running time. Other people find it a vulgar, offensive and tasteless assault on the senses. It wouldn't be unfair to suggest that both parties have a point.

Dialing the Bayhem way, way, way past eleven, Michael Bay orchestrates his $100m orgy of violence and destruction like a kid in a candy shop (or should that be bull in a china shop?), throwing everything at the screen in a relentless barrage of action. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but you can't help but marvel at how brain-meltingly ludicrous it is.

The Ku Klux Klan, people getting shot in the a**, cars being launched through the air, a mortuary scene played for laughs, Ecstasy used as a comedic device, dead bodies getting run over mid-chase, two rats f**king, casual racial slurs, the leveling of an entire shanty town (people live there!) that culminates with a guy getting blown up by a landmine right outside Guantanamo Bay.

Its incredible how boring Michael Bay managed to make the concept of giant alien robots beating the sh*t out of each other given how insanely over the top he managed to make a straightforward buddy movie.

I don't do social media, so like or follow me in person but please maintain a safe distance or the authorities will be notified. Don't snap me though, I'll probably break. I was once labelled a misogynist on this very site in a twenty paragraph-long rant for daring to speak ill of the Twilight franchise. I stand by what I said, it's crap.
