From From overheard in New York

Chick: Are you Jon Lovitz?
Jon Lovitz: Jealous?

--Union Square

I don't know if this is a true report, but it sounds like something he'd say. It reminded me of how funny Jon Lovitz is. He's one of those actors who never really changes from role to role, he just plays himself, always, but he's always awesome.

He stars in one of my favorite bad movies Mom and Dad Save The World, and has dozens of bit parts in otherwise awful movies. He's the only reason to watch A League Of Their Own with has one of the most nightmarish casts ever: Tom Hanks, Rosie O'Donnell, and Madonna.

My other most favorite bad movie is Super Mario Brothers, which has for me the awesomest cast of all time: Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo, Dennis Hopper, Samantha Mathis (The girl who takes off her shirt for Christian Slater in "Pump Up The Volume"), and Mojo Nixon.

What's your favorite bad movie?
