WHERE DO WE BEGIN??  

YOU'D HAVE to GO ALL the WAY BACK to OUR 2005 WORST PICTURE "WINNER" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0327643/awards - to FIND a FILM THAT FIRES on SO MANY RAZZIE® CYLINDERS as THIS ONE DOES.  

HERE's a PARTIAL LIST of THIS FILM's "RAZZIE® CREDENTIALS":

ITS PRINCIPAL CAST IS WALL-to-WALL with PAST RAZZIE® "WINNERS," REPEAT OFFENDERS and/or FORMER OSCAR WINNERS JUST ASKING for a RAZZ-ING: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0897361/awards - , http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367652/awards - , http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0383222/awards - and http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0004778/awards - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0004778/awards -  (WHOSE "CAREER" IS in DANGER of OVER-TAKING CUBA GOODING's for the TITLE of "MOST EMBARRASSING OSCAR WINNER GONE BAD")... 

IT ACTUALLY BRAGS in ITS ADVERTISING THAT IT WAS DIRECTED by "THAT SHAM-WOW GUY" (a POINT the BERRY FEW FILM CRIX WHO BOTHERED to SEE IT COULD NOT RESIST RAGGING ON)... 

IT's APPARENTLY "THE SHAM-WOW GUY's" EQUIVALENT of a "SELTZERBERG/SATIRE" MOVIE, BUT MADE by SOMEONE with the INCREDIBLE CREDENTIAL of CLEARLY BEING EVEN LESS TALENTED THAN "SELTZERBERG"...  

IT's "RIFFING ON" (READ "RIPPING OFF") http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066999/trivia?tab=mc&ref_=tt_ft - -- THE FIRST of WHICH WAS MADE...42 YEARS AGO!! 

...and FINALLY (the ONLY SMART THING ABOUT the MOVIE's MARKETING) IT WAS APPARENTLY WITHHELD from CRITICS -- with a VENGEANCE...SO EFFECTIVELY THAT, the MONDAY AFTER IT OPENED, THERE WERE STILL  http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/inappropriate_comedy/ - ...EVERY ONE of THEM MERCILESSLY SLAMMING the FILM, BUT the TOTAL NUMBER of THEM BEING TOO FEW to ACTUALLY GET the FILM an R.T. RATING(!)... 

EVERY NOW and THEN, OUR VOTING MEMBERS CHOOSE to ELECT a TINY TURD of a MOVIE as WORST PICTURE OVER BIGGER, BLOATED-BUDGET BLUNDERS:  http://www.razzies.com/forum/inapppropriate-comedy_forum668.html - LOOKS POISED to JOIN THAT LEAGUE of the ULTRA-LAME.  


NOW THAT WE'VE SHOT IT SEVERAL TIMES in the HEAD to PREP IT for YOU, FEEL FREE to "GO IN FOR the KILL" BELOW.

FOR YOUR AMUSEMENT, HERE's the http://www.razzies.com/forum/foto-funny-for-inapppropriate-comedy_topic6113.html - to OUR FORUM FOTO FUNNY on THIS FILM... 

AND for the MORBIDLY CURIOUS, HERE's the http://www.razzies.com/forum/inapppropriate-comedy_forum668.html - to OUR FORUM INFO PAGE on the FILM (LISTING LINKS to SEE GROSSES, REVIEWS, PROMO LINKS and the FILM's IMDb PAGE)...  

I'D SAY "ENJOY!" BUT in THIS CASE, THAT SEEMS EXTREMELY...

IN-APP-PROPRIATE!

Um, actually, this isn't the first movie the Sham-Wow Guy directed -- Here's an http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0201290/ - IMDb LINK to see the other one...  

Considering that this is a "pseudo sequel" to THAT movie (and it has the same idea as Movie 43  --make a film consisting of intentionally stupid, raunchy, and offensive skits) it should probably be up for Worst Sequel/Prequel/Remake or Rip-off.  
 

Also I should mention that "Sham-Wow Man" is not only the main mastermind behind this, he should also be considered for Worst actor, as he also has an "acting role" in this.

And I don't think Adrien just did this movie just for the money. According to IMDb, he actually "helped" write the screenplay!

Ya know, this movie's release only strengthens my argument for there to be a Special Category this year called "Worst Excuse for a Raunchy, Gross-Out, Offensive 'Comedy." I mean, besides this, there was A Haunted House, Movie 43, Identity Thief, 21 and Over, Burt Wonderstone... and looking at up-coming releases, it's not going to stop here!

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Reading Oiram's comments above, I was curious if "Sham-Wow Guy's" previous movie was ever even released. Here's a http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=undergroundcomedymovie.htm -
SPOILER ALERT: "Sham Wow Guy's" first film grossed all of...$856!!!!

A half hour ago, (14:10 Pacific Daylight Time) this film had a statistic once thought unattainable: 1% --count it, ONE PERCENT! -- at MetaCritic based on the first 4 reviews!  
 
At a bare minimum, this should be considered for Worst Screen Ensemble (Brody, Schneider, Lohan, and Rodriguez). Knowing how badly Underground Comedy Movie was received, I'd say this would be a good pick to actually "win" for Worst Picture. Even if Underground wasn't nominated for the Worst of 1999 RAZZIES. I would've replaced Big Daddy, The Blair Witch Project, and The Phantom Menace with Underground Comedy Movie, Baby Geniuses, and End of Days for Worst Picture of 1999.
 
And this film comes from the man whose pitch made ShamWow the biggest infommercial of the Decade of the 00-Agents!

I'm even going ahead to say this is already the worst film of the year. Movie 43 just got shut out by this.

UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: Given that I don't recall ever seeing a MetaCritic Rating much below 10%, this film bottoming out at a record low 1% ( http://www.metacritic.com/movie/inappropriate-comedy - Looks like while many of us were presuming G.I. JOE RETALIATION ( http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/gi_joe_retaliation/ - ® Bomb of March, this little Turd Torpedo snuck in and stole Joe's thunder. 

And, yes, I'd have to concur with Jesse685, this one's all but got a lock to be listed for Worst Picture (and several other categories) come Nominating Ballot time at the end of the year...

Don't be so sure about that, guys! Movie 43 boasts a much larger cast of people that should be doing (and have done) better. Plus, this one is a limited release, while Movie 43 was a wide release. 

I think the safest bet is Worst Supporting Actress for Lindsay Lohan (And remember, she's also playing "herself" in Scary Movie 5).

So, Oiram: Do you really think Movie 43 is worse, or are disagreeing just to disagree? I've noticed that you often take a contrary point of view just to "stir things up." 

On the face of it (and I should admit I haven't yet seen either this or Movie 43) this one sounds the more indefensible of the two: Letting the "Sham Wow Guy" (whose first movie's $856 gross in 1999 would come out to about $873 in 2013 bucks) ever direct again (and then casting Lohan and Schneider!) is like BEGGING to get Razzies!!

Of course InAPPropriate Comedy is worse than Movie 43 -- but if you look at past Razzie history, the voters have a tendency not to pick the truly worst movies, but ones that are widely hated that the general public has heard of. How else can you explain Seltzer/Friedberg never  having won Razzies yet?

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Although the two films seem to have a lot of things in common, I see no reason why this film and MOVIE 43 couldn't both be Worst Picture contenders and/or nominees...though I have to say, the impressive cast they somehow coralled for MOVIE 43 at least looked like it might be a promising project, while this film looks like its casting director was working from the RAZZIE® History pages at the IMDb ( http://www.imdb.com/event/ev0000558/ -

The only reason most of the "impressive cast" were in Movie 43 was because they either wanted a chance to work with a certain actor or actress, OR they were tricked (or guilt-tripped) into doing it. In some ways, I think the latter point makes Movie 43 more detestable. 


Getting back to InAPPropriate Comedy specifically, does anyone think that Amazing Racist guy, Ari Shaffir, is an example of why Worst New Star should return?

Since they were probably filmed around the same time, (and it's not like either was the first one to use this concept), it's not like this a remake/rip-off of MOVIE 43. And shouldn't one see UNDERGROUND COMEDY MOVIE to know how much this one follows it in order to call this a sequel?

I think that's a little too far-fetched. If we do that, why not Worst Light Comedy? Or Worst Horror that's not a Thriller?

You mean that they should be included, right? Because the award goes to the entire cast. By the way, that would include Vince Offer since he's in the movie (As Oiram said).

Since he hasn't seen this movie (he couldn't have), he's probably just going by the worlwide concensus.

It's not always like that. Sometimes it's simply a case of movies with releases so limited that voters couldn't see them.

If that's the case, Offer could be nominated (depending on how big his role is). Or Dante, who plays that character's assistant.

Vits, replying to our last point:

If Underground Comedy Movie does not count as Vince Offer's first movie, he still had a cameo in Jack & Jill, so he technically can't be considered as Worst New Star.

Even though InAPPropriate Comedy is a lock for me at the moment for Worst Picture, as well as Worst Actor and Supporting Actor & Actress, for me, it still doesn't beat Movie 43 for Worst Screen Ensemble or Worst Director (or should I say DIRECTORS -- since 12 of them each worked on different segments of the film!) .

I saw the trailers for both Movie 43 and In-app-Oriate Comedy. I was thinking, maybe we should have a dual nomination for both films like we did for "Disaster Movie" and "Meet the Spartans"?? 

Who's with me?

I don't think combining the two is going to work. Meet the Spartans and Disaster Movie were made by the same people, so it did make sense to conjoin them. Movie 43 and InAPPropriate Comedy, on the other hand, were made by completely different people...

Well that is true, but I think the films are so similar it's ridiculous -- they might as well be carbon copies of one another. 

I see your point, but the I find the similarities hard to ignore.

I saw this a few weeks ago but, due to school work, I didn't have a chance to post about it and forgot about doing a post. oiram's question in the Grown Ups 2 thread if that was worse than Movie 43 reminded me about this film.

In-app-ropriate Comedy is easily the worst film of the year... by a wide margin!! Compared to In-apppriate Comedy, Movie 43 is Airplane!, Grown Ups 2 is Animal House, After Earth is Avatar, and The Lone Ranger is The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. It's so awful that Lindsay Lohan gives the best performance! The only part that I didn't completely hate was the Asian Driving School segment and only because the Asian girl gives an awesome rant about how awful "The Amazing Racist" is. Grade: Rotten Asshole

Razzies this should win:
Worst Picture
Worst Director
Worst Supporting Actor for The Amazing Racist
Worst Screenplay
Worst Screen Couple for Any Two Razzie Caliber Actors
Worst Screen Ensemble

Razzies it should be nominated for:
Worst Actor for Adrian Brody
Worst Supporting Actor for Rob Schneider
Worst Supporting Actress for Lindsay Lohan (also for Scary Movie 5) and Michelle Rodriguez

I didn't think she was too bad in Machete Kills. However, I wouldn't be angry if she was nominated for that as well.
