There are two distinct types of bad movies - those that are simply boring and uninspired, and those that were made with real passion, but fell victim to ridiculous scripts, poor acting, and cringe-worthy cinematography.

Needless to say, the latter type is much more popular among fans, as these movies were so bad that they paradoxically became good!

As you may have noticed, there are a lot of iconic movies on this list, and some of them even managed to make a tidy sum at the box office. But how does a bad movie become an iconic movie? Quite easily, actually!

The thing is, people have always valued entertainment over substance, and the above-mentioned movies deliver big laughs and memorable moments every few minutes, putting to shame major Hollywood productions where nothing of substance can go on for hours.

Yes, these movies are bad, and fans are laughing at them instead of with them, but in the long run it doesn't really matter, because projects like "The Room," "The Wicker Man," and "Batman & Robin" will continue to thrill audiences with their badness for years to come, remaining relevant while most Oscar winners have long since sunk into oblivion.

Sometimes a movie has to be bad to be good!
