In 2017 it was decided that the Bad Movie Twins were just missing out on too dang many bad movies! We only watch like … 60 a year *sob*. And thus Bring a Friend was invented. In the Bring a Friend cycle and genre we allow for a non-BMT qualified film to be “brought in” via some connection to a qualifying film. Because this website still serves as an archive of sorts it naturally needed a place to more officially store this information. In addition to the IMDb link for these film I’ll also try and provide some reasoning towards why we think the film is “big enough” and “bad enough” for BMT. We are big and bad dudes and demand only the biggest and baddest films after all. Enjoy!
Black Friday – It’s street cred comes from the director Darren Doane who directs Kirk Cameron films now. The argument for why it is bad is that even Gary Daniels fans think it is bad for a Gary Daniels film.
D-Tox – No one can deny a straight-to-DVD Stallone film has got some big bad street cred.
Transmorphers – An Asylum film which is honestly cred enough, but it is also rips-off one of the bigger BMT franchises in Transformers and was notable enough to get actual genuine reviewers to notice.
Edison Force (Paired with The 13th Warrior as films released long after filming) – This is one of those films which get all of its cred from its cast: Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey, Justin Timberlake, and LL Cool J headline a straight-to-DVD feature! Given a BOMB by Leonard Maltin.
Liz and Dick (paired with In Love and War as a dramatic love story) – Again, all from the cast really. This was supposed to be Lindsay Lohan’s big comeback … in a Lifetime film!
Groom Lake (paired with Star Trek V: The Final Frontier via the director, William Shatner) – The only other film besides Star Trek V: The Final Frontier to be directed by William Shatner. That’s nuts.
Hard Ticket to Hawaii (paired with The 15:17 to Paris as an A+ setting) – Has one of the worst scenes ever. Features multiple Playboy Playmates. And is directed by Andy Sidaris. Street cred up the wazoo.
Escape Plan 2: Hades (paired with Ernest Goes to Jail as a prison escape film) – Despite being direct-to-DVD it managed to get 23 reviews for a 9% qualified Rotten Tomatoes score, including reviews by indieWire and Hollywood Reporter.
Santa with Muscles (paired with Santa Claus: The Movie as a Christmas film) – Hulk Hogan … thinking he’s Santa. Nuff said.
Un indien dans la ville (paired with Jungle 2 Jungle, it’s own remake) – A rare foreign dub which was big enough to gain the attention of Roger Ebert, who put it on his worst of list for 1996.
