5 of the Dumbest Movies of All Time

Updated on April 13, 2013


So there have been a lot of movies made recently. Some have been great, others have been, well not so great. In the end though there are definitely movies that have made you smarter and others that have done the opposite. Movies that have made you smarter usually aren't watch as ones that make you dumber. I find this a striking surprise. People just seem to love to watch dumb movies. Either way, here is a list of movies that will shrink your brain. Most of you have probably already seen them though. This is not a surprise.

1. Nacho Libre

So Nacho Libre is about a cook at a monastery and his ultimate quest to become a masked wrestler. I don't know what else you want me to say. First of all, who in the world dreams of become a masked wrestler? I mean you can think of plenty other career fields that have better benefits right? I guess that wasn't the case for Nacho. Not to mention its Jack Black. I think that is the only reason why people even went into the theaters to watch this movie in the first place. The movie looked like it had a thousand dollar budget and the costumes weren't even cool. It is pretty bad when it appears that this movie was intended to be on my list of dumb movies. I guess it finally made it here!

2. Napoleon Dynamite

Well, well, well, if it isn't Napoleon Dynamite. A story about a high school nerd and his journey to going to the prom with a semi-decent looking girl and his mexican friend and his nerdy girlfriend who sells keychains. This movie ruined the world for about two years. I was in high school when this came out and I couldn't go a day without hearing "your mom goes to college" or some other retarded one-liner from this movie. What does that even mean? In the movie the girl selling keychains was saving money to go to college and Kip says "your mom goes to college". That doesn't even make sense. This movie also ruined tater tots. They were gross for about a year until I started eating them again. Kept thinking about soggy tots coming out of Napoleon's cargo pocket.

3. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Monty Python might honestly be the lowest budget movie on my list. It looks like they made it in a field with a whole bunch of left over high school play props. The costumes look homemade, and does the movie. This is another movie that just screams stupid from the start. The scene with the black night, the witch scene and when Lancelot was running toward the castle and proceded to slaughter everyone in it. I just don't get it. What was this movie even about. I can't even remember the part about the Holy Grail. Maybe because I stopped paying attention about halfway through. I actually know a lot of people who enjoy this movie. I guess it just isn't or me.

4. Malibu's Most Wanted

Is this movie supposed to be making fun of 8 mile? I can't think of what else it could be doing. Nothing is more stupid then a white kid trying to act ghetto in a comedy movie. This movie was trying so hard to be funny, but it just ended up being Scary Movie funny. The type of movie where you laugh a little bit in the movie but at the end you say "remember that part where, never mind I forgot". Nothing was memorable about this movie. The only scene I actually remember was with the musket and the harpoon gun. That was actually kind of funny. As far as the whole movie goes though, I will never watch it again.

5. Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny

I am going to start by saying that I actually enjoyed this movie. That doesn't mean it wasn't absolutely retarded. The movie starts with a boy running away from home. By the time he gets to Hollywood he is in his late 30's for some reason and is homeless on the streets. Just so happens to team up with the biggest loser on the planet and start trekking to find a mystical pick that will make them play better. If you don't remember Ben Stiller at Guitar Center, that was probably the least intelligent part, but still kind of funny. I just don't understand what the end goal was. Find the Pick of Destiny, then start playing well and then what? Start a 2 man band? Not to mention there is one pick.

      Now for REALLY dumb movies there's always "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," and "Mars Attacks." Oops, almost forgot "Breakfast of Champions"

      I completely understand and respect the nature of the movie. This hub is completely humor based as are the movies.

      But don't you see? Monty Python was SUPPOSED to be dumb. In fact, they went wayyyy over the top in the stupid department on purpose; a parody of some "epic" movies of the mid to late 60's. Of course British humor is an acquired taste- kind of like good scotch.

      I've only seen Mighty Python... the others... never seen. Movies to consider on this list... Any Austin Powers, Spaceballs, or Rat Race. Ever seen any of those?

      From what you listed, The Holy Grail is the only movie I really enjoyed. Napoleon Dynamite seems to have "cult" following, but I personally didn't really connect with me.

      +1 Interesting.

      I liked Napoleon Dynamite and the Holy Grail haha. Malibu's Most Wanted is not my cup of tea.
