Bad Movies

27 Feb

In honor of the Oscars, I’ve decided to compile a list of all the bad American movies that I’ve watched on Russian TV.


Ghost Rider


Bride Wars

Big Momma’s House 2


New Moon

Aeon Flux


Rock and Rollers


Meet Dave

Shrek 2


There are many more but  I’ve blocked them from my memory.  No wonder Russians tend to have bad opinions about America; they only get to see our terrible Nicholas Cage movies.
