With "Sex and the City 2" getting panned, we get reviews from critics, and you, on the best “worst” movies of all time.

"Sex and the City 2" is getting panned. Critics say the new "Prince of Persia" is no prince on the big screen.

It’s starting off as the summer of bad movies. And yet, we watch.

Some even feast on movies they say are so bad, they’re good. "Ishtar" did bad camel shots long before Carrie Bradshaw hit Abu Dhabi. "Snakes on a Plane" was joyfully awful.

There was an audience boom for "The Room." Never mind "Troll 2," "Plan 9 from Outer Space," "Mommie Dearest," and any number of films starring Mr. Elvis Presley.

This Hour, On Point: Terrible movies. We’re looking at the “best worst films” of all time.

Guests:

Kim Morgan, writer and blogger for MSN Movies, Huffington Post, IFC, Entertainment Weekly and Garage Magazine. She is the former L.A. Weekly film critic. Her blog is "Sunset Gun."

Wade Major, senior film critic for Boxoffice Magazine and a regular featured critic on NPR's FilmWeek.

Michael Paul Stevenson, director of the new documentary “Best Worst Movie,” which looks at the characters and the making of “Troll 2,” which topped IMDB’s Bottom 100 list (in 2006). As a child actor, he had the lead role in the film “Troll 2."

More:

"Birdemic" is one of the newer candidates in the running...

"Sex in the City 2" is getting some bad press, though the jury is still out...

Critics have not been kind to the 2003 film "The Room," though it has a cult following...

And of course, there's the classic 1959 film "Plan 9 From Outer Space"...

This program aired on June 4, 2010.
