Normally, when a movie is marketed and released, the team who created it knows exactly what the movie is and what emotions they hope to elicit with it. For example, a romantic comedy is supposed to give people that “feel good” feeling, a horror is supposed to scare people, and a comedy is supposed to make them laugh.
The topic of this article will be looking at movies that were marketed as something else, but ended up being unintentionally hilarious. Some of these are so bad that we thought for sure they were intended to be funny or comical, but they weren’t. Check it out.
Bloodsport is a 1988 martial arts movie that was one of the first starring roles for Jean-Claude Van Damme. It showcased his brilliant athleticism, but while the film had great fight scenes and athletic feats, it was beyond hilarious in many ways. The biggest reason why this film is more funny than anticipated simply comes from the dialogue, which is so bad (or good if you like train wrecks) that it needs to be seen to be believed. Really, the fight scenes in this film are the only thing exciting, while everything else falls flat and is simply laughable.
