I will watch the shitty remake of "Get Carter" just to watch Mickey Rourke as Cyrus...not his best performance, but it's so wacked out I can't stop watching it.

Some people hate it, but I love The Dirty Dozen. Telly Savalas as Archer Maggot cracks me up every time.

Any indie movie with Steve Buscemi. Delirious and St. John of Las Vegas were great because Steve Buscemi is hilarious and creepy

 @billweem You are thinking of Kurt Russel who is equally awesome. Big Trouble in Little China rules. He should have played Indiana Jones.

 That's one of the greatest bad movies of all time.  I love when they all dose in preparation for the big fight.
