I was also quite dissapointed with Cowboys and Aliens. It actually started off to be a pretty good Western style movie with a good plot. But the Alien twist to it was too bizarre. Especially with the Native American Indian thing thrown in. Just too " Over the Top "
Though throw in MST3K and these types of movies become much better
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
The worst movie I know is this German masterpiece: 'Daniel der Zauberer' or 'Daniel the Wizard'. It actually hit the big screens here in Germany, without any success whatsoever. I think it was only on for a week, or maybe even two.
Here is the trailer, and please pay special attention to the song at the end, sung by the lead actor. Nice voice, ay?
One quote from the trailer: "The story of a young man who moved out to learn fear, and discovered in the middle of Winter, that there is an invincible Summer inside of him." Alright.

Funny how one person's terrible movie is another's tolerable, good, or great movie. It sort of shows how useless movie critics are. I agree with some of the titles listed above, while others are movies I actually like a lot or are so middle of the road they don't belong on a Best or Worst list. Some of you would be completely ignored by me if we were real life friends and I wanted to know what movie to see.
I was actually going to say "Manos : The Hands of Fate" as my answer but I decided to Google "worst movie ever" out of curiosity. Lo and behold, "Manos" showed up in the very first link.

I thought of several terrible movies when I read the thread title, but I think I would have to say that the standout movie that popped to mind was "Batman and Robin" (if I recall correct, that was the one with Schwarzenegger as Mr Freeze).
As to the guy who said Fight Club was among the worst, it would be interesting to hear the reasons because I put that as one of the greatest movies I've seen (not the best, but definitely in the best 10%)

I second that Fight Club is an amazing adaptation from a ridiculously amazing novel!
I thought the new Alice in Wonderland was an absolute pointless meander, I was really looking forward to it since the bulk of Burton's work is interesting and Depp is usually class, but the whole thing was mundane and annoying despite the pretty effects.
House of Wax is of course horrendous, if only it were real and Paris Hilton could melt into a pool of mediocrity.
Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air,
And deep beneath the rolling waves, in labyrinths of coral caves,
The echo of a distant tide comes willowing across the sand,
And everything is green and submarine...
