Fast cars, beautiful people, lots of crashes, good triumphing over evil; the plots for the top 10 worst car movies are largely the same as the plots for the ten best car movies. So what’s the difference? Execution, or actually the fact the producers of the worst movies didn’t get execution—prescribed as a sentence—for hacking up one of the most tried and true genres of American cinema.
Bad acting, tired plot lines, clichéd scripting, I mean how many times can a guy be held hostage to his memories, or have his wife kidnapped, or get revenge because somebody killed his children/partner/brother/best friend—or even in one instance, him? This is why when something truly original comes along it is celebrated so vociferously. The rest of the time we just watch the crashes and chases and mindlessly acquiesce to the ludicrousness.
You see, the thing is if you like cars, whatever else is happening in the movie, you’ll be tempted to sit through the entire film just because it’s so rare to see fast cars actually going fast—or appearing to do so. That said, here’s the companion to our list of the top 10 best car movies of all time (so far).
It’s Autobytel’s list of the top 10 worst car movies ever made (so far).
