Bring a Friend Archive

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!

2017

Dirty Dancing (2017) – Street credit directly from this specific article.

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.

Asterix at the Olympic Games – Hard to confirm, but it does appear that there are a Razzies equivalent in France and this film won worst film of 2007!

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.

Manos: The Hands of Fate – Featured in arguably the most famous MST3K episodes of all time. It is also considered one of the worst films ever made.

2018

Teen Witch – All of the cred comes from a single scene. Top That.

A Talking Cat?! – Featured on The Flop House podcast, and the titular cat is voiced by Eric Roberts.

Edison Force – 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 – Again, all from the cast really. This was supposed to be Lindsay Lohan’s big comeback … in a Lifetime film!

Foodfight! – One of the strangest stories in film history, like A Sound of Thunder on steroids. Just read this thing!

Groom Lake – The only other film besides Star Trek V: The Final Frontier to be directed by William Shatner. That’s nuts.

Samurai Cop – Is considered one of the best bad movies of all time. Featured heavily in multiple episodes of Red Letter Media.

Hard Ticket to Hawaii – Has one of the worst scenes ever. Features multiple Playboy Playmates. And is directed by Andy Sidaris. Street cred up the wazoo.

2019

Escape Plan 2: Hades – 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.
