Sharknado (2013)

IMDb plot summary: When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, nature's deadliest killer rules sea, land, and air as thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace.
Directed by Anthony C. Ferrante. Starring Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, John Heard and Cassie Scerbo.

The husband and I finally managed to catch this on Netflix, and I can definitely say it did not disappoint as far as completely off-the-wall insanity. I was worried it was going to be slow, but there was an abundance of terrible acting and ridiculous action sequences to keep me entertained throughout... and I haven't laughed that hard at a final scene in a movie in a long time. Best. Rescue. Ever. It's obviously not what could ever be called a *good* movie, but if you're looking for something bizarre and ridiculous and super fun to snark, this is a solid choice. 3 stars?

Flickchart: #1281 out of 1965, below The Rescuers Down Under and above The Battle of Algiers.

This movie was hilarious. My husband absolutely hated it though. He kept making fun of me for laughing at it.

If laughing at awful movies isn't your thing, there's no way you'd enjoy this. Fortunately my husband and I are both fans of so-awful-they're-wonderful flicks. And there was PLENTY to snark at here.
