Re: The worst movie you've ever seen

kindergarden ninja is possibly the worst film ever, mate gave it me for my birthday and i managed to sit through it somehow, was worse than a student film, had some baseball player as the main guy, i managed to trade it in and got about 2 quid for it too so was pleased someone paid me to get rid of it
