The film that held the Razzie record (6 berries, 11 nods) for many years has never been out on disc (despite, so I'm told, the Head RAZZberry's efforts) and the tape has been out of print for a long time.
Fortunately, it's now been put in its entirety on YouTube - I don't know how many people on this forum have actually seen it but it's worth a look just to put things in perspective: this film is truly, irredeemably, ball-shatteringly bad.
It's often been said that hardly any truly great movies are made anymore; perhaps that's true, but certainly stuff this incompetent is also rarely made now. Look at prospective nominees for this year and compare them with stuff from the early 1980s - the new stuff, while bad, is at least somewhat professionally made!

Anyway, enough of my babble - here's the link:

It's obviously been taken from a VHS copy so it's a little murky.

P.S.: Where in the film is the Worst Song winner? (I assume it's a tune played over one of the many sex montages)

What someone needs to do now is find an Inchon bootleg, and put it on YouTube!

The YouTube version looks like the original cut of INCHON - does anyone know what was cut out for the US release? 

Speaking of other big turkeys, the original cut of 1985's Revolution - without any voice-overs and with a happy ending - was up on YouTube for a little while -- but I think it's been taken down now.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: According to a "Trivia Note" on IMDb (LINK) the 140-minute version posted on YouTube should be the same cut that premiered in Washington D.C. in May of 1981 -- and was summarily booed off the screen. The version released by M-G-M in August of 1982 (and eventually awarded 4 RAZZIES® including Worst Picture and Laurence Olivier as Worst Actor - LINK) was more than half an hour shorter...but still excruciating to sit through!

Yes, that's what I was referring to; the YouTube version is the long one, as opposed to the 105-minute film dumped in theaters a year later. Do you (or anyone else) remember the major differences between the two - what significant stuff got cut?
