Something magical happens on a long-haul airplane flight. Sometimes the absolute worst movie is the best medicine. In that half-awake, dehydrated state somewhere over the ocean, with babies screaming and people kicking your seat, a truly terrible movie is the best distraction. What's the worst movie you've ever loved on an airplane?


Please include a picture, poster, clip, trailer or other representation for the movie that had unexpected charms when you were at 20,000 feet. And please mention the title, and why it was suddenly the best thing ever when you were zonked out on a plane. Thanks!
