I often wonder why people spend a chunk of change on bad movies. You can just look at a site like Rotten Tomatoes to get an idea of what a movie is like. Personally, if a movie rates at an extreme (good or bad) I agree with the critics. Example: A few weeks ago we rented a vacation place with a group of friends. Two of the couples decided to go see The Fockers
. I mentioned I read some of the reviews, they were all terrible, and had no desire to see it. They had also seen the reviews, but felt critics could be wrong. They went and came back with remarks like "I can't believe we spent $$$ on that garbage...", "The producers should have paid us to sit through it and I don't think they could pay me enough...". Well, duh!
