Forget movie musicals; this 1975 turkey is widely considered one of the worst films ever made, regardless of genre. Featuring Cybill Shepherd and Burt Reynolds, the movie was intended to serve as an homage to the classic musicals of the 1930s. Instead, it is the great example of what a musical should never aspire to be. It was blasted with negative reviews upon its release, with Esquire film critic John Simon claiming "it may be the worst movie musical of this--or any--decade." The tidal wave of vitriol prompted director Peter Bogdanovich to write a press release to newspapers across America apologizing for his ghastly film. -XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: 20th Century Fox Films)
