inspired by the showgirls thread, I'd like to start a thread that lists all the tackiest movies in memory.  cult movies don't count, campy movies don't count either, I want some real tacky movies.

I guess I'll start with showgirls, since it's already there.  and I'd like to list it before the DVDs turn it into an actual cult movie.
daredevil, the "wake me up inside" number really did it for me

Too late. "Showgirls" is a camp and cult classic. Midnight screenings are held with audience participation (the guy who does the commentary is responsible for that), just like "Rocky Horror."

This really bad, unintentionally hilarious, government commando flick that was playing at 3 am in the morning -- I really wish I could remember the name of it. When the credits rolled, it seemed to be made in Israel. The title was something like American Commandos.

Pretty obvious, but needs to be mentioned.

Well, I've got news for you pal, you ain't leadin' but two things: Jack and shit . . . and Jack just left town.

I once went out with a girl who loved that movie.  I don't talk to her anymore.


Also, I would have to put Basic Instinct up on this list.  Ah, hell, let's just add the entire Paul Verhoeven US filmography, minus RoboCop and Total Recall.

How can we forget Kevin Costner's THE POSTMAN, featuring the most shameless, pretentious, and unintentionally funny last five minutes ever.
