There are some real doozies available on Netflix and it can be fun to get a group together and challenge them to find the absolute worst movie available for streaming on Netflix. To get you started, we’ve put together a list of the top 5 worst movies available on Netflix, with some help from DigitalTrends.
5 Worst Movies on Netflix
|1. Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader|
|This flop of a film is actually a sequel to Attack of the 50 Foot Woman and Attack of the 60 Foot Centerfold. It features a woman with Gozilla-esque proportions and an epic chick fight between cheerleaders in an arena. It’s for a fe chuckles and it certainly passes the time better than watching paint dry- barely. The fact that it comes in HD is just icing on the cake.Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader is a 3D comedy horror television filmdirected by Kevin O’Neill and produced by Roger Corman as his first 3D production and an update of the 1995 film Attack of the 60 Foot Centerfold which was also produced by Corman. The film stars Treat Williams, Sean Young, and Jena Sims. The film was released on 25 August 2012 on Epix|
|If you’ve always dreamed of seeing J-Lo as a lesbian and watching her do yoga poses, you’ll love Gigli. But this worst of the worst won an amazing seven Razzie awards. You’d think a movie with stars like Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Al Pacino, and Christopher Walken would be worth watching, but you’d sadly mistaken. Even Ben can’t pull off this script’s strange brew of a mobster leading man with a sensitive side.Gigli is a 2003 American romantic comedy film written and directed by Martin Brest and starring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Lainie Kazan. After a protracted battle between studio and director, a radically revised version of the original film was released. There was significant media attention and popular interest prior to its release, primarily because Affleck and Lopez, the film’s stars, were romantically involved at the time. Critical reception was extremely negative, and in the years since its release Gigli has frequently been cited as one of the worst films ever made. The film was also a box office flop, grossing back only $7.2 million against a $75.6 million budget.|
|3. Toxic Avenger Part II|
|If you’ve ever seen the original Toxic Avengers, this cult comedy spin off will tickle your fancy, but for the rest of you, it’s truly painful to watch. The hero from the original Toxic Avengers now finds himself with a new mission- to find a girlfriend and a job. But alas life gets in the way and in a jerky plot twist, he finds himself in Tokyo repairing his rocky relationship with his dad. But the arrival of an evil movie villain, Apocalypse Inc. sends him running back home to battle, bash, and defeat the forces of evil.The Toxic Avenger Part II is a 1989 comedy horror film released by Troma Entertainment. It was directed by Lloyd Kaufman and features The Toxic Avenger in an adventure to Japan to meet his father.

|4. Iron Sky|
|B movies are known for their outrageous plots, but this one takes the cake. The plot features a fully functioning Nazi community living out its days on the dark side of the Moon while planning to take over the Earth. It reminds me a bit of Marvin the Martian and Bugs Bunny in those Warner Bros. cartoons from back in the day. Surprisingly, a sequel to this flopper is due out in 2016. Iron Sky is a 2012 Finnish-Australian-German comic science fiction action film directed by Timo Vuorensola and written by Johanna Sinisalo and Michael Kalesniko. It tells the story of a group of Nazi Germans who, having been defeated in 1945, fled to the Moon where they built a space fleet to return in 2018 and conquer Earth.Iron Sky comes from the creators of Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning and was produced by Tero Kaukomaa of Blind Spot Pictures and Energia Productions, co-produced by New Holland Pictures and 27 Films, and co-financed by numerous individual supporters; Samuli Torssonen was responsible for the computer-generated imagery. It was theatrically released throughout Europe in April 2012. A director’s cut of the film with 20 additional minutes was released on DVD and Blu-ray on 11 March 2014. A video game adaptation titled Iron Sky: Invasion was released in October 2012. A sequel, titled Iron Sky: The Coming Race, is currently being crowdfunded through Indiegogo and is slated for a 2016 release.|
|5. THE CORE|
|This Sci-Fi gone Sci-Wrong proposes a plot where the core of the Earth stops spinning, resulting in utter disaster for secret military earthquake project that sends a team of government scientists on a journey to the center of the Earth to “fix” the problem and save the day. Starring Hillary Swank and Aaron Eckart, the terrible script writing in this film will leave you on the edge of your seat… waiting to escape.The Core is a 2003 American science fiction disaster film.
