The Worst 80s Movies, Movies Beginning with O
I want the absolute worst movies from the 80s, and please tell me why you
thought they were the worst movies. Of course, some movies are so bad their
good. I don't agree with all the suggestions here. This page goes against what
I really believe in, but I think everyone needs to vent a little.

OC & Stiggs / 1985
Stupid buddy movie that jumps around like the film editor was huffing model airplane glue and WD40 while working on this sad project. Lame jokes and even more lame is the semi-allstar cast which includes,Jane Curtain ,Bob Uecker, Martin Mull, a severely coked-out-of-his-mind Dennis Hopper and a sweet performance from Melivn Van Peebles (Mario's old man). Do yourself a favor, do your kids a favor, do society a favor and rent a copy today only never return it. Pull the tape out. Your monetary sacrifice is worth it. Thank goodness this one isn't available for purchase at the moment. I'm sure someday, some higher up at the movie company, that totally out of touch will think it's a "good" idea to release this movie to DVD format. All I can say is, any one who sees this movie will want back the 120 minutes they've wasted.
on golden pond sucked, because i didn't enjoy watching it. ya see people, i watch movies for fun and enjoyment, not to disect every reel w/ a magnifying glass, who cares if it didn't win any oscars, or if i could do a better job acting in it, hey i had fun watching it. by the way many of your stinkers are on my top 10 list. to each his own. peace!!
Oh Good God...This is one movie I'm sure Jim Carrey wishes hellfire and brimstone would come up and consume! Comedy central shows it quite frequently. It's about this teenage boy (Carrey) who has been dating this girl for some time and wants to get some, frankly. She doesn't want to do it with him yet, so he's very sad about this. To try and cheer him up, Carrey's two dorky little friends take him out for a night on the town. They go to this place with lip-shaped telephones that you call different tables with to try and get some action. Carrey manages to hook himself up with Lauren Hutton, a five hundred year old vampiress who needs a virgin so she can stay young and pretty. She has to have sex with him before midnight or she'll shrivel up. This premise, complete with Hutton's flamboyant black vampire attendant, is really a winner! :P
The Oracle / 1986
Everything about it stunk: Stupid plot about a planchette (the pointer thingy on a ouija board) without the board. Terrible acting, some of the worst camera work ever done, and several (unintentionally) hilarious scream scenes. I had the misfortune to see this in the theater. In fact this movie was SOOO bad that 15 years later I still have the ticket stub as a reminder of the biggest waste of money I have ever suffered
Out of Bounds / 1986
Picture it...1986...Anthony Michael Hall in his teen agnst post-John Hughes phase. This is a story about a farm boy from Iowa who goes to visit his brother in Los Angeles. While he is at the airport, he picks up an (oh no!) identical bag but it contains drugs. So the dealers think he stole it, come after him, and wind up killing his brother instead. Then the cops are looking for him, too, because they think he killed his brother and that he is a drug smuggler. The story is so lousy and predictable and Anthony Michael Hall didn't say anything for about twenty minutes into the movie. Even then, he didn't look too thrilled to be in the movie. Caution: If you find this movie at a video store...do not, I repeat, do not waste money on it. If you must find a similar movie, head for a 1991 movie called Run. It has a better plot, Patrick Dempsey, and some good chase scenes.
Out Of Control / 1985
One of the very many awful movies that red-headed hottie Betsy Russell attempted to act in. This one also had future Twin Peaks-er Sherilyn Fenn. A group of teens are stranded on an island---and they're not alone. You know the movie stinks when the best part is at the beginning, which is the theme song played during the opening credits.
This movie is so boring. It bored me to death.
This is a no-brainer. This film tried to mix arm wrestling with a child custody struggle between a truck driver and his wealthy father-in-law. I mean a story about arm wrestling! How ridiculous!
Overdrawn At The Memory Bank/Hobgoblins / 198?
A God-awful TV movie I saw on Mystery Science Theater 3000 today, even Mike and The Bots couldn't make watching this fun. They were making fun of this blot on the late Raul Julia's career, and deservedly so. I can't really explain the plot, but it involves mind stuff and many references to "Casablanca", which was a good movie. I don't recommend watching this unless they have the MST3K version on the Sci-Fi Channel again. Another bad movie that was on MST3K was "Hobgoblins". It was some weird thing about creatures from a film vault, and it dragged on forever. It had cheap non-thrills, a bad Wang Chung reference, it was boring as hell...I JUST HATE IT!
