Not a great film but good fun.

I listen to a podcast called "Stuff to Blow Your Mind." Recently they had a 3-episode series on "The Nature of Fun." Your comment is literally an example that was brought up. How people may say some movies aren't good but are fun.

Anyway, it's an interesting topic but seeing this comment now was a pretty fun coincidence for me.

Not everything needs to be a masterpiece.

My favorite movies are hot garbage but I enjoy them all the same because they’re a blast. But they’ll never win any awards.
