If you must watch a Nicholas Sparks tearjerker, do it with funnyman Doug Benson and his posse of comedians cracking wise during the onscreen action. The quality of the overwrought rom-coms, bloated action flicks, and big-budget flops is questionable, but not the uproarious experience.
The Cinefamily’s clubhouse atmosphere makes this a “safe haven” for the movie obsessed, from collegiate cineastes to middle-aged dads who still love Adam Sandler. Thanks to a terrific roster of marquee names like Sarah Silverman and Brian Posehn, who help with the play-by-play, Benson’s ritual of ridicule, held at least once a month, usually sells out. He has only one rule: Don’t talk over the dialogue (even though the rule is broken constantly).
Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 can rejoice. This is where bad movies go to become hilariously good.
