Bad movies are similar to math when it comes to cliches –  plug every character, line of dialogue, and plot point into a cliche equation in order produce the finished film product. However, the best kind of bad movies don’t simply stop at embracing cliches. No, instead they follow them while also pointing out how ridiculous they are the entire time. It’s that type of self-awareness that viewers appreciate so that they can still feel smart even while watching something incredibly dumb.
